Red Lobster Cheese Biscuits

Copyright 2011 Kevin D Weeks
I once read that the secret to Red Lobster's Cheese Biscuits was one of the most popular recipe searches on the Web. I remembered this not long ago when I went out to Red Lobster with some friends. It had been a few years, and I'd forgotten just how good they were. So I decided to see if the recipe was on-line. Oh yeah. Loads of recipes, all basically the same. This one, though, was different in adding cold butter to the mix to make it more flaky. The trick works. Recipe adapted from, Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2, by Todd Wilbur, Plume Books. (Larger image.) Makes 6.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 17 minutes

Total Time: 22 minutes

Yield: Makes 6.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Bisquick baking mix
  • 1/3 cup cold whole milk
  • 2 Tbsp. cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • Glaze:
  • 1 Tbsp. salted butter, melted
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. dried oregano

Preparation:

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Cover a small baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Add Bisquick to a medium bowl along with butter, then, using a pastry cutter, knives or a fork, cut butter into mix. You should end up with flecks of butter about the size of rice grains.

3. Add cheddar cheese 1/8 teaspoon garlic and stir.

4. Add milk and mix in with a fork until a thick dough forms.

5. Drop approximately 1/4-cup portions of the dough onto baking sheet (a small ice cream scoop works great for this).

6. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.

7. Melt 1 tablespoon of salted butter then stir in garlic powder and parsley flakes. Brush melted butter on biscuits.
