I made these at home today as a test and I will be making these on the trail, they are pretty tasty for the short cook time and few ingredients...

1 cup of white flour
1Tbs of Baking POWDER
pinch of salt
1 Tbs Olive Oil

Optional: Sugar, Garlic Salt.

At home: Mix dry ingredients and place into ziploc freezer bag..

At camp: Slowly add just enough water to reach sticky consistency.. Add oil to pan bring to temp and glob mixture onto pan, flip when golden brown..

Serves 2-3 people and has about 450 calories total..

You can make plain biscuits or make Garlic biscuits with the garlic salt or even sweet biscuits with sugar.. I would imagine a small condiment sized honey packet would be excellent for honey biscuits...

Edit: I'm sure Bisquick would be great for the sweeter biscuits but I like the thought of being able to add Garlic salt for garlic biscuits if I desire..

Man I was just getting ready to post almost the same thing!!!! Made some to go with eggs n bacon MH and beef stew. The oil and pan is worth the weight! We took a couple jelly packets and butter packets with us. For a pack in hunt would be a great pick me up after couple days of not seeing anything. I've been making these for years just enough water to make a ball flatten out and you get real close to a buscuit from the oven. FYI a lid helps make them fluff up.

I would have to have a teflon-coated titanium frying pan to justify it. I read a bunch of the AR Harding books out of Fur Fish n Game magazine's old school book section. What you describe was the main course for a lot of boondockers back in the day. It is a shame all of our technigues and gear have lost the art of wild cooking. I have a Nalgene cup that I mounted a bail wire on. I cannot find any cookware with a bail wire, they only have handles for using a stove.

That's easy lawnboi packaged gravy just have to figure out the ratio of water to mix for the amount you want to make, probably just throw the mix and sausage in a MH bag add half cold water stir it then add the hot water. Think I'm gonna experiment.
