Cheddar Biscuits

If you like Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay biscuits, then you are absolutely going to love this copycat version. Actually, I think these may be even better than the restaurant version. They come together in no time at all, and they’re incredibly flavorful and completely addictive.

I added parsley flakes, black pepper and onion powder to the biscuit dough, but those were the only changes I made. If you make these, definitely use all of the butter called for in the recipe. It sounds like a lot, but the biscuits soak up a ton of butter, so you really have to slop it on there. Don’t worry about it making them soggy, either; it just makes them really moist and even more flavorful. These biscuits will be making many repeat appearances in my kitchen!

2 cups Bisquick

1 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup cheddar cheese

1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.

2. Mix Bisquick, parsley, onion powder, pepper, milk and cheese until a soft dough forms.

3. Drop by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. (I got 10 biscuits out of my dough.) Bake 6-8 minutes or until golden brown.

4. Mix butter or margarine and garlic powder. Brush mixture over warm biscuits before removing from cookie sheet.
