I love the warm cheddar biscuits that are served to you before a meal at a famous national restaurant . I seriously think I could eat quite a few
of these copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits, if push came to shove. Truth: It would NOT take a lot of “shoving” to get me to eat lots of them! They give new meaning to the words “comfort food”… ha ha!
Did you know they are TOTALLY EASY to make at home? Yes… from start to finger-licking finish, these warm and buttery biscuit bites of cheddar and garlic goodness can be on your table in about 30 minutes or less.
They’re as simple to make as mixing up the dough, dropping them onto a baking sheet and baking them! Simple to make, and amazingly GOOD (bet you can’t eat just one)! This recipe makes 10, so there will be plenty to go around. Here’s how to make them:
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. In a medium bowl, stir the biscuit mix, garlic powder and cayenne pepper.
Add grated cheese and milk to bowl; stir together until a soft dough forms.
TIP: For a well rounded biscuit, spoon the dough into a measuring cup, THEN transfer it to the baking sheet (see below). Measure about 1/4 cup of batter into measuring cup.
Spoon the dough out onto a greased baking sheet (or a baking sheet covered with parchment paper). Smooth the tops of the dough down a bit with the back of a spoon. This will help prevent hard points from forming on the top of the biscuits.
Bake at 450 degrees for 8-10 minutes. The tops of the biscuits should be golden brown when done.
While the biscuits are cooking in the oven, melt the butter in a small pan; stir in the garlic powder. Once you remove the biscuits from the oven, brush the garlic butter on top of the biscuits using a pastry brush. Sprinkle the crushed parsley flakes on top to garnish. Serve biscuits hot…and ENJOY!
Hope you like them! They are a great addition to most meals, and guess what? They’re WONDERFUL! Have a fantastic day, friends.
