These copycat Red Lobster Biscuits, aka Cheddar Bay Biscuits, are wonderfully buttery with tons of garlic flavor.
You would think that Red Lobster would be known for their seafood, but say “Red Lobster” and most people are likely to think of the hot, buttery biscuits known as Cheddar Bay Biscuits. And of course southerners know biscuits are where it’s at.
One bowl and about 15 to 20 minutes of your time is all that’s needed to make these easy and fabulously delicious homemade biscuits. Most likely you have all of the ingredients on hand.
The secret to these delicious Red Lobster Biscuits is plenty of cheddar cheese and garlic flavor. A full cup of shredded cheese is added to the biscuit dough along with a teaspoon and a half of garlic powder. The tops are brushed with a salty garlic butter decorated with specks of parsley.
This is a scoop and drop biscuit recipe. They are my favorite because they hardly make any mess in the kitchen. I find it’s easiest to scoop with a measuring cup that has been coated with cooking spray.
These Red Lobster Biscuits are best served warm from the oven and are worth every single calorie.
HOW TO STORE THESE BISCUITS:
Leftovers can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days. They can also be frozen for up to 2 months. To freeze them, cool completely and wrap them individually in aluminum foil and then place them in a zip-top freezer bag.
