Cheddar Bay Biscuits


This is a copycat recipe for the famous cheese biscuits at Red Lobster. Whenever our family went there this biscuits were always cause for celebration. Now I make them at home with this easy recipe that only takes 20 minutes!

What you need:

2 1/2 cups Bisquick
4 Tablespoons cold butter
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
3/4 cup milk
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp Old Bay seasoning

Butter Glaze:
3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

Dairy-free version:
If you’d like to have a lactose-free biscuit, substitute Smart Balance Olive Oil spread for butter in the biscuit, water for the milk, olive oil for the butter in the glaze and omit the cheese.

What you do:

1) Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line one cookie sheet with parchment or use a silpat; set aside.
2) Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a fork. Don’t worry about mixing too thoroughly; there will be small chunks of butter in the mix about the size of peas. Add cheddar cheese, milk, old bay seasoning and garlic powder. Mix by hand until combined, but don’t over mix.
3) Drop 1/4 cup portions of the dough onto the lightly greased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes in preheated oven or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.
4) While the biscuits are baking, melt butter is a small bowl in the microwave. Stir in garlic powder and dried parsley flakes.
After biscuits have come out of the oven, use a brush to spread the garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Sprinkle a little kosher salt on the freshly coated biscuits. Makes three dozen.
