Cheddar Bay Biscuits

If you've ever eaten at Red Lobster, you probably remember their delicious cheddar biscuits. While I'm not a huge fan of the food at Red Lobster, I'm always up for eating there for the biscuits. I found a copy cat recipe that's super close and quite tasty. 

Cheddar Bay Biscuits
(makes about a dozen small biscuits)

2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sugar
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper powder
4 oz cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup of butter, melted and cooled for a few minutes

2 tbsp butter, melted
1/4 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp fresh parsley, minced

Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, garlic powder and cayenne. Stir in the shredded cheddar. 
In another bowl, measure out the buttermilk. Slowly pour in the butter while mixing until small clumps form. 
Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients and stir just until everything is wet. 
Use two spoons to drop biscuits about half the size of an ice cream scoop. 

Bake for 12 minutes or just until golden. 

While the biscuits are in the oven, mix the topping ingredients together. 
Immediately brush the biscuits after they come out of the oven. Don't over do the brushing! 
Cool for a few minutes and enjoy! 


  1. Those look absolutely delicious!

  2. The main reason I love going to Red Lobster is those biscuits. LOL.

    I would rather get good seafood along a coast.
