Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Light and flaky and so good with soup or made into elegant little tea sandwiches or even just plain. Red Lobster's popular little biscuits have inspired many variations of this copycat recipe floating around the internet. I have tried a couple of them but this version is my favorite. I am not usually one to use pre-made mixes, but I really like the results you get from the Bisquick. I have heard that Red Lobster uses butter flavored shortening. I have also heard of other people using Mrs. Dash in these biscuits instead of the garlic powder/parsley. Try them once then make them your own.

Makes 12 | adapted from

2 1/2 cups bisquick baking mix
1 cup cheddar cheese; finely grated
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/4 tsp salt

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Combine Bisquick with cheddar cheese, milk, 2 tablespoons of butter that has been melted in the microwave, and 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder in a medium bowl. Mix until well-combined.

3. Drop approximately 1/4-cup portions of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

4. Combine 1/4 cup butter with 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, parsley flakes and salt. Brush this mixture over the tops of each unbaked biscuit.

5. Bake for 14 to 16 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.

This looks like the "Ruby Tuesday Cheese Biscuit" recipe. I have hunted for that without any luck. These will be on the table tonight ... thanks.
