Red Lobster's Cheddar Biscuits

The best part of Red Lobster is always the biscuits.  Who knew they'd be so easy to make!

The Good: This recipe is so simple!
The Bad: This version turned out just a little dry but it may be because we used Skim milk instead of whole.
The Ugly: People will get upset if you eat the last one before them!

Suggestions before starting:
Do not forget to set out milk before starting recipe.  Typically I would suggest setting out the butter as well but this recipe calls for cold butter.

This recipe is from ABC News

Red Lobster's Cheddar Biscuits

Recipe Total Time: Approx. 30 min
Recipe Yields 12 Servings
Preheat Oven to 350

  • 2 1/2 Bisquick baking mix
  • 3/4 cup cold whole milk
  • 4 T cold butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1/4 t garlic powder
  • 1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese

Bush on Top:

  • 2 T butter, melted
  • 1/4 t dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 t garlic powder
  • pinch salt

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter or a large fork. You don't want to mix too thoroughly. There should be small chunks of butter in there that are about the size of peas. Add cheddar cheese, milk, and ¼ teaspoon garlic. Mix by hand until combined, but don't over mix.
  3. Drop approximately ¼-cup portions of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop.
  4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.
  5. When you take the biscuits out of the oven, melt 2 tablespoons butter is a small bowl in your microwave. Stir in ½ teaspoon garlic powder and the dried parsley flakes. Use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Use up all of the butter. Makes one dozen biscuits.
