Adventures in Cooking: Cheese Garlic Biscuits (like Red Lobsters)

"There is no one of-woman-born who does not like Red Lobster cheddar biscuits. Anyone who claims otherwise is a liar and a Socialist."   Tina Fey, Bossypants

I was reminded of the awesomeness of the cheddar biscuits by my friend Emily which reminded me that I held the keys of awesomeness in my hand!  Many, many years ago, before I met Husband, I dated this guy for several years, whose mother passed along a secret family recipe titled "Cheese Garlic Biscuit's (like Red Lobster's)".  Okay, it wasn't a secret family recipe, it was a newspaper clipping, which she copied, enlarged, and laminated for me.  I dusted off my cookbook where I wrote down recipes (seriously, I wish I could go back to my 15 year ago self and explain how I would not need to write things down with handwriting ever again) and found the clipping:

Cheese Garlic Biscuits (like Red Lobster's)

I have no idea why there are only 11 on this cookie sheet.
Nope, no idea at all.  
2 c Bisquick
2/3 c milk
1/2 c Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 c butter
1 tsp. garlic powder

Heat oven to 450 degrees.  Mix baking mix, milk and cheese until a soft dough forms.  Beat vigorously 30 seconds.  Drop dough by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.  Melt butter.  Mix with garlic powder, brushing over warm biscuits before removing from cookie sheet.  Serve warm.  Yields 12 biscuits, more or less.


  1. make these for your mom. i bet she'll love them.

  2. I don't know if this says more about the things I search or the content of your blog, but in my reader, this post was followed by a Google ad for losing weight. I found it quite ironic and will be rebelling against said ad with biscuits.
