Alright, alright. Who doesn’t LOVE Red Lobster biscuits? How can you not??  The “Cheddar Bay” biscuits, they call them. I’ve only been to Red Lobster a handful of times in my life, but I can always remember devouring the little cheesy heaven-biscuits that come complimentary with every meal.

They made quite an impression on me! Kinda like the bread they serve at Carrabba’s with the Herb Dipping Mixture. So I knew this would have to be on the list of recipes I experiment with and perfect.

I tried out a few recipes that I found online and I liked this one that I found on the best, but I just upped the quantities a little bit. Delicious. I mean, they are incredible. They are the real deal – I tested them against the real thing at Red Lobster and I was hard-pressed to choose a favorite (mine).

But don’t make these if you like biscuits actually, because you’ll be eating them non-stop.

I gave the leftovers to a friend of mine because I have no will-power whatsoever, and he and his date actually ended up eating them all that night.

Adapted from a recipe I found on, courtesy of Todd Wilbur, "Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2," Plume Books.
Serves: 18 biscuits
  • 2 ½ cups Bisquick baking mix
  • ¾ cup cold milk
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter (1/2 stick)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ¼ teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • pinch of salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, add the bisquick and cold butter. Smash the butter into the bisquick with a fork or pastry cutter until it is the size of green peas. Add the garlic powder, cheddar cheese and milk. Mix with your hands just until it comes together -- but don't overmix!
  3. Drop heaping teaspoonfuls of the dough onto an aluminum foil covered sheet pan. The rougher they look, the more authentic!
  4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes -- until the tops are golden brown. Just before you take them out, prepare the top butter coat by melting 2 tablespoons of butter in a small bowl. Add the garlic powder and parsley flakes. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Using a kitchen brush, brush the tops with the butter mixture when they've just come out.

  1. You know, I organized a linky party over this past summer where about a dozen or so of us improved on chain restaurant dishes. I believe one of the dishes profiled was the Red Lobster biscuit. If I organized another, would you be interested in participating?

  2. Awesome!

  3. Thank you Martin!!! :D :D
