Cheddar Biscuits

I am not much of a fan of seafood, but I love dining at Red Lobster. I usually enjoy a steak, soup, salad and of course the Cheddar Biscuits. They are so very addicting. I am sure you would agree if you have tried them before.

I serve homemade bread and biscuits, most often with our family dinners. Simple recipes, like Homemade Dinner Rolls and Pull-Apart Garlic Bread, are easy to make. When I have a little bit more time, I make CopyCat Texas Roadhouse Rolls.

Cheddar Biscuits like Red Lobster

For years, we had to make our own CopyCat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits because the mix was not available to purchase at the grocery. So, I always made our Homemade Cheddar Biscuits from scratch. I tried the boxed version, and it was just not as good as this recipe.

There is no need to buy the store-bought mix. Making this biscuit recipe from scratch is so simple. My homemade version has never failed. They are perfect every time.

My family thinks our homemade version is even better than the ones served at the restaurants. The garlic, cheese, and butter flavors make them amazing.

Ingredients to Make Cheddar Biscuits

  • Bisquick
  • Milk
  • Butter
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt
  • Parsley Flakes

How to Make Cheddar Biscuits

To make CopyCat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits, you first need to preheat your oven to 400 degrees and grease a baking sheet. Then in a medium-sized bowl, combine the Bisquick and cold butter with two forks or a pastry cutter. You will have large and small pea-sized chunks.

Then, add the cheese milk and garlic. I most always use freshly grated mild or sharp cheddar cheese, and the results are much better than store-bought pre-shredded versions.

Mix by hand until combined. Be very careful to not over mix.

Drop about nine even-sized portions of the biscuit dough on to the prepared baking sheet. Now, bake for about 15-17 minutes. The biscuits will be finished baking when they reach a golden brown color.

When the cheddar biscuits are baking, add two tablespoons of butter to a small bowl. Then, add the garlic, salt, and parsley. Mix until blended.

After removing biscuits from the oven, add the melted butter to the top of each.
