Yeah, I know. A lot of you are going, “Eww, why would you want to?” But the other night I was making dumplings to put in my beef-vegetable soup, and damned if the leftover dough in the bowl wasn’t kind of tasty!
I looked it up online and from what I’ve seen it sounds like you shouldn’t eat it if it contains raw eggs (it didn’t) for the same reason you shouldn’t eat cookie dough (which I do, but rarely these days). Some people said, though, that flour and Bisquick can contain E.coli (no fun!) or mold (usually only if it’s past its date, and only a problem if you’re allergic, which I’m not).
So…is it relatively safe for me to do it again? I don’t plan to make a habit of it or anything, but are these cautions mostly a “let’s cover our ass” thing, or is it likely that my freshly-bought Bisquick contains Bad Things That Should Not Be Consumed Raw™?
Interestingly, it says “Do Not Eat Raw Dough” on the box, but it’s hard to tell if that’s just in reference to the pancake recipe it’s near (dough contains 2 eggs) or for all the recipes regardless of egg content.
Whenever I visited my grandma she would make cookies with me and I would eat a ton of the raw cookie dough, I strongly believe it has amazing properties in it to keep one young…
I think doctors should write prescriptions to take a spoonful of cookie dough every four hours
I never once in all those years got sick from all that cookie dough and have better overall health today because of it
I mix up Bisquick and water, and sometimes a little grated cheddar, and then don’t bother to bake it into a biscuit. No harm has befallen me in over 40 years of doing this, as long as my mother never finds out.
I eat raw eggs all the time (from our hens). Never a problem.
Also, apparently stink bugs are not toxic. We had a nice venison stew, and my gf garnished our bowls at the table by rolling up and snipping basil/cilantro/parsley onto our food. When she finished, she noticed half a stink bug squirming around in the remaining leaves.
