  • While that is finishing cooking, whisk the baking mix, milk, and eggs together in a bowl.

I love easy meals made from scratch and this totally fits the bill. The only pre-made ingredient here is the baking mix and that is only half a sin in my book. This is mostly because pre-made baking mix is about the same price as doing it yourself and isn’t as full of extraneous ingredients as a lot of other processed foods. If you like though, you can substitute in your homemade all-purpose baking mix.
