I think I can speak for anyone who has had the privilege of enjoying a meal at the Red Lobster restaurant by saying… their Cheddar Bay Biscuits (or garlic & cheddar biscuits as some call them) are one of the most delectable items on the menu!
So… today I thought I would share a quick & easy recipe with you, to show you how you can enjoy a similar treat at home for your family dinners.
First, I wanted to include this how-to video from Kraft, to teach you how to make a really nice “basic” cheddar biscuit… just in case you don’t like garlic.
1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup (or 1/2 stick) cold butter, cubed
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
* Add ¼ teaspoon garlic powder if you want the Red Lobster version
TIP: If you would rather use Bisquick, you could substitute the first 6 ingredients with 2 cups of Bisquick & ½ cup cold water.
Mix dry ingredients together, cut in butter and add cheese. Pour in milk a little at a time. After you pat out the dough & cut into squares (as in video), place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 450 degree preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
For the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit version, also add this topping:
2 tablespoons melted butter
¼ teaspoon dried parsley flakes
¼ teaspoon Italian Seasoning
½ teaspoon garlic powder
a small pinch of salt, and a pinch of Old Bay seasoning if you wish
Mix together these ingredients & brush on top. If you like a softer biscuit, brush heated topping on after you cook them. If you like more of a crunch, brush mixture on before you bake the biscuits.
** I at least DOUBLE this recipe for my big family 😉

Ooooooh, those look really good… I copied that one down! Thanks for sharing!
Old Bay seasoning is a special mix, gives everything that touch of something special.
Thanks for sharing with us all.
We just LOVE Old Bay seasoning mix at our house! We put it on everything from noodles, to eggs, to mashed potatoes!
I just happened across your blog today and love it. Thanks for the recipe, I have been longing for a good biscuit!
WE eat Old Bay on popcorn! I can’t wait to try the bisquest…sound sinful!
Thank you thank you thank you for giving me a recipe that DOES NOT state “bisquick” as the main ingredient b’cuz I never use it! Now I have a list of ingredients to use in place of all those recipes that do call for it. I’m making these tonight along with the copycat recipe of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscano
Soup! Thanks again!
Trisha – I think I want to come for dinner – it sounds yummy!
