Red Lobster Biscuits

I don’t remember the first time I went to Red Lobster restaurant, but I knew right away it wouldn’t be my last. When the server put down the bread basket full of these buttery biscuits, we each grabbed one, gobbled it down and quickly asked for more. How could it be that these delicious, pillowy biscuits were unlimited?

We haven’t been able to dine at a restaurant for a while, and the nearest Red Lobster is almost 30 minutes away. I knew we had to start making Red Lobster’s biscuits at home.

These are drop biscuits, which means that instead of rolling out the dough and cutting round shapes with a biscuit cutter, the dough is just scooped from the bowl and literally dropped onto the baking sheet. That’s what makes them so dang easy!

Ingredients Overview

Luckily the recipe is super simple, and they’re ready to bake in just of few minutes There are just a few ingredients to mix together, then literally drop onto a baking sheet. Once baked, brush with melted garlic butter.

  1. Bisquick: this simple baking mix has flour, baking powder, baking soda and cornstarch and salt. We use this simple shortcut to make these garlic cheese biscuits even quick and easier.
  2. Milk: Mix with the Bisquick just until it’s moistened and sticky. Over-mixing can cause your biscuits to be dense instead of tender and fluffy.
  3. Cheddar: It’s right in the name – garlic cheese biscuits need cheese! We use shredded sharp cheddar for the classic recipe, but you could try Jack cheese, Gouda or even Gruyere. Add this when you stir together the milk and baking mix.
  4. Garlic Butter: Melt some butter in the microwave and stir in some garlic powder, dried parsley and a pinch of salt. You can use garlic salt, but I prefer to control the amount of salt. Brush melted butter onto baked Red Lobster Biscuits.

Top Recipe Tips

  • Mix vigorously, but only for half a minute. This helps air get in to help make them nice and fluffy.
  • Play around with cheese flavors.
  • Add bacon or chopped ham for a smoky flavor.
