Survival Biscuits?

I wrote this awhile back over at Figured many of you have not seen it as it is buried deep within the archives. To see it in its original form click HERE.

Food is my major concern when looking at my preps. I feel like I could just never have enough. At this point I have a large variety of types of food including common grocery store items as well as dehydrated and freeze dried.

I stopped by a local Sunbeam Bread Outlet store and saw a display of different bread mixes. What caught my eye was these were “Just add water“.

I picked up a few for $1.29 each and just tried the Country Biscuit Mix Sunday morning. Super simple to make. Like I said – “just add water” and then cook.


For the prepper this is a simple food prep that can be put back inexpensively requiring few supplies to prepare. The expiration date listed on the package was March of 2013(Rourke – over a year away at the time). Like most things – the true date which the product could not be eaten is likely well beyond that date.

Anyways – the biscuits turned out great. My wife cut the dough a little thin but they tasted very good.

There are many simple and cheap preps out there that can make a world of difference when the time comes.

  1. John, thanks as usual for keeping us informed about easier and cheaper ways to prep. I have been concerned about making simple breads and biscuits because of the need to have yeast. Most yeast expires very quickly and can only be preserved by freezing (which may not be an option without power), so these Just Add Water items will come in very handy. And like you stated, most expiration dates can be extended and still have nutritional value.

  2. This same company makes a Country Gravy Mix and a Peppered Gravy Mix (also just add water) that is amazing. I have been using it for years. I can’t recommend the Sausage flavored gravy mix, tastes funky to me. I am thinking that some freeze dried sausage crumbles in the gravy on top of the biscuits made from this product would almost make you forget about the disaster of the day for a few minutes.

    Also, the last time I bought the gravy mix I noticed that they have changed the packaging to a glossy more colorful one so just be sure to look for the brand name,Southeastern Mills.

  3. We store a lot of these and the muffin mixes and corn bread mixes and eat them on a regular basis . They also have cookie mixes too .
