Question Is Bisquick same as Pancake Mix?

When I purchasing the items I need to make my sausage and cheese balls I notice on the box it can be used as pancake mix?

Is there a difference with pancake mix and Bisquick?

A bit - you can replace Bisquick for pancake mix, but not vice versa. In other words, you can make pancakes from Bisquick, but "pancake mix" cannot take the place of Bisquick in recipes that call for it.

I use Bisquick to make my pancakes and 'drop' biscuits, but have never used it for anything else. The pancakes turn out pretty good if you follow the "fluffy" recipe on the box.

Ok thank you. I need to make my million dollars by suggesting they need to make a recloseable bag or smaller boxes.
I have to fold the bag over and use a clothesline pin and worry about freshness.
Same thing would be a good idea for flour and sugar.

I solve that problem by transferring the product to an airtight container after its opened.

Have you seen the Handi-Vac bags and sealer? I like them. I've used it to package vegetables, cheese and meats and am impressed. It takes a minute to get the hang of the vacuum. A gallon bag would hold the mix and keep it fresh while tucked away in the box.

I keep Bisquick in refrig after opened and never had a problem. I use it for quick dumplings on beef or chicken stew, Awesome pancakes when you mix in club soda.

I use the lock-n-lock sealed containers that QVC sells, they are awesome for storing dry ingredients, flours, sugars, cereals, etc...

Whaaat? Do you mean instead of the milk, or just a little club soda?

My Bisquick never has a chance to get stale. It's the only thing I use for pancakes, waffles, biscuits, dumplings and the occasional Velvet Crumb Cake and Cinnamon Coffee Cake. (these recipes are not on the box anymore, but DH loves them from his childhood. His mom was not exactly a domestic goddess, but she did make stuff with bisquick).
