Use Bisquick and bake it in large square pans.

@farmerman,
need a little help. Id like a recipe thats been tested by someone and isnt the Bisquick flavored baking soda biscuit that Im used to.
Course, I guess I could buy a lot of those Pillsbury biscuit roll packs and just bake them off

@farmerman,
Baking Powder Biscuits
Pre-heat Oven to 425°F
YIELD: 300 Biscuits or 100 Portions, each portion 3 biscuits (1 ounce each)
INGREDIENTS
Flour, sifted 15 lbs (30 cups)
Baking powder 15 oz.
Salt 3 oz.
Shortening 3 3/4 lb.
Milk 5 or 6 qt.

1. Sift dry ingredients into bowl of mixing machine.
2. Add shortening to flour mixture and blend until consistency of cornmeal (low speed, approximately 3 minutes).
3. Add milk and mix until dough is formed (low speed, approximately 1 minute).
4. Place portion of dough onto lightly floured surface, knead until dough is smooth.
5. Shape into a ball and roll to a uniform thickness of 1/2 inch.

Bake on greased cookie sheets, one inch apart, at 425° for ten minutes or until brown.

How big a mixer (mixing bowl) do you have?
How big an oven?

You should be able to cut this by 1/3.
and then make it up in 1/3 batches so you will have room to bake them all.
We used to do this for the
Manchester Coon and Fox Hunting Club's
Annual Eat Everything You Killed This Year but Still have in Your Freezer Breakfast/Dinner.

@farmerman,
Danke. I'm honored.

Have a great time.
(And you are right about the baking soda taste of Biscuit. I used to use that stuff but had to use buttermilk to make them taste like something more than salty baked flour. Now I don't use it at all AND I've given up Crisco and gone back to using lard.

@Joe Nation,
I used to make my own version of Bisquick when I was cooking 500 breakfasts a day back in my younger years.

Here's a small-portion recipe for it. If I were to make biscuits with it, I'd also add some powdered buttermilk to it for better flavor.

4 c all purpose flour
2 tbs baking powder
1-1/2 tsp salt
1 c shortening
