Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits

Cheddar Biscuits
Order an entrée from America’s largest seafood restaurant chain and you get a basket of some of the planet’s tastiest garlic cheese biscuits served up on the side. For many years this recipe has been the most-searched-for clone recipe on the Internet, according to Red Lobster. As a result, several versions are floating around, including one that was at one time printed right in the box of a baking mix. Here one of the closest copycat recipe of  Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits.

The problem with making biscuits using a baking mix is that if you follow the directions from the box you don’t end up with a very fluffy or flaky finished product, since most of the fat in the recipe comes from the shortening that’s included in the mix.

On its own, room temperature shortening does a poor job creating the light, airy texture you want from good biscuits, and it contributes little in the way of flavor. So, we’ll invite some cold butter along on the trip-with grated cheddar cheese and a little garlic powder. Now you’ll be well on your way to delicious Cheddar Bay. Wherever that is. This is one of the recipes of Top Secret Recipes.

Cheddar Biscuits ingredients

I will try to take a picture of all the ingredients you need, but somehow I end up forgetting one or two…. Can you tell me which one I forgot here 😉

Ingredients:

2 ½ cups Bisquick baking mix
¾ cup cold whole milk
4 tablespoons cold butter (1/2 stick)
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese

Brush on Top:

2 tablespoons butter, melted
¼ teaspoon dried parsley flakes
½ teaspoon garlic powder
pinch salt

Instructions:

 

1. Preheat oven to 400F

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 a greased cookie sheet using two spoons or an ice cream scoop. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.

4. 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.
