So Quick with Bisquick

This wonderful 1967 title is from the stash my friend Claire gave me. I actually have a few Bisquick cookbooks, like Jello ones, that focus on one product. This one seems to have more unusual recipes than others...The cookbooks contain many recipes that have no Bisquick in them, but are still funny.
Check out Zebra Bread, in the 'Indoor-Outdoor' Party Snacks:
Combine 2 cups Bisquick, 1/4 cup sesame seed and 1/2 tsp. salt. Stir in 1/2 cup cold water with fork to a soft dough. Knead 5 times on lightly floured surface (not 6? 4?). Divide dough in half. Roll or pat each half into a rectangle, 12x8 inches; cut lengthwise in half. Grill strips 5 inches from medium coals 3-4 minutes on each side. Cut each strip into 4 pieces; serve hot with butter. Makes 16 pieces.
What's 'So Quick' about that?
Amy's version: Take two slices of bread from whatever loaf you have. Put them in the toaster. Toast. Eat.
I'm reading Jayne Castle's latest, Obsidian Prey. I actually like all three lines Jayne Ann Krentz writes under, not just because she was a librarian. Lots of folks are not as keen on this futuristic line, but her humor and fun feisty characters are still there. I like these.
