When I go to Red Lobster I’m mostly going for the garlic cheddar biscuits. I’m sure I’m not alone. Years ago I found a copycat recipe using Bisquick and I’ve been using it ever since. Then there’s the box mix (which is almost as good) that you can actually buy in stores now, my Aunt brings them to every get together. Now that we cut out processed food I knew I needed to figure out how to make these completely from scratch.
So I made garlic cheddar biscuits from scratch, I used white wheat flour and freshly grated cheese (we use this food processor for all of our shredding) and it was delicious. This is a perfect way to get your picky eaters to eat whole wheat, the garlic and cheese do a great job at covering up the wheat taste.
I love how simple these garlic cheddar biscuits are to make, just mix the ingredients and drop them on a cookie sheet. When they’re done brush them with melted garlic butter and you have the tastiest, most savory biscuits that you’ll ever make from scratch.
I will warn you that it’s impossible to avoid taking second and third helpings of these biscuits. If you have a big family, do yourself a favor and double the recipe. If you somehow manage to have leftovers they’re just as good reheated in the microwave for 10 seconds.
To give these some authenticity and the real Red Lobster feel I served these alongside garlic parmesan crusted shrimp scampi. It was the perfect date night dinner! I halved this biscuit recipe, but wish I didn’t we could have eaten a whole batch between us.
To make this a real food recipe I used white whole wheat flour and made baking powder (2 parts cream of tartar, 1 part baking soda.)
