I have a pretty popular recipe for Garlic Cheddar Biscuits that’s been pinned almost 20,ooo times (that’s a lot!) They’re really delicious, but they don’t rise as much as I would like. So I decided to go back to my favorite ever Red Lobster copy cat recipe for Simple From Scratch Garlic Cheddar Bay Biscuits. I’ve been making this recipe since the days of our very first, not-so-great apartment
The biggest difference between the two recipes is that this version includes Bisquick baking mix. I don’t like having to run to the store to buy Bisquick to make these, so I made my own homemade Bisquick mix. It was so simple, 4 ingredients and a food processor and you’ll be on your way to your own Bisquick baking mix. (I can’t wait to try this mix to make pancakes!)
In this recipe you cut butter into the Bisquick mix with a bit of garlic powder. Then you add milk and cheese, mix the biscuits by hand and drop the biscuits onto a greased pan. Easy enough, right?
Then you add some melted garlic butter to the tops for savory goodness. The same kind that has you lingering at Red Lobster for 2…3….4 baskets of those glorious biscuits. My grandma used to go to Red Lobster just to pick up a few batches of biscuits to go.
I use white whole wheat flour in my Bisquick mix so my biscuits turned out a little on the darker side, but don’t worry they still had the same great flavor.
These are great served with sea food, pasta, and last week we even made these with chili. They were a huge hit. If you have extra biscuits these taste amazing reheated in the microwave for about 15 seconds.
