Red Lobster Biscuits

These biscuits taste just like what I remember having at Red Lobster. We eat these quite a bit with soups, stews, seafood, and sometimes just as a side. Red Lobster Biscuits are quick and easy. I always pull out this recipe last minute with any soup or sometimes seafood entree. I also whip up these Red Lobster Biscuits to impress when I am a house guest and need to contribute to a meal in in a strange kitchen. These biscuits always make people smile and beg or more.

This recipe for Red Lobster Biscuits is for 2-3 people. You will get about 10 biscuits out of this recipe. Yes, 10. You may think that is a lot for 2-3 people, but I can guarantee that you will still be racing for the last one.




Red Lobster Biscuits
Slightly adapted from Christy and Lettuce Pray

Dough
1 1/4 cup Bisquick
2 TB cold butter
1/2 cup freshly shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3/8 cup milk - (I have even used powdered milk when in a pinch)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 teas. onion powder

Garlic Butter Topping
3 TB butter melted
1/2 tsp garlic powder (even if you are a Garlic lover like me,  don't over do it)
1/2 teas. dried parsley

Directions
-Preheat oven to 400
-Use a pie cutter, Kitchen Aid mixer, or two forks to cut cold butter into Bisquick Mix until the clumps are the size of peas.
-Stir the onion and garlic powder into the Bisquick mixture.
-Next add the cheese and milk to the Bisquick mixture. Stir until just blended.
-Using a small spoon, scoop about 1/4 cup dough, and place it on a baking pan lined with
baking paper, or sprayed with Pam.
-Dough will be in globs about golf ball to lime size. These will look messy but they make for a authentic looking biscuit in the end.
-Bake at 400 degrees for 13-15 minutes or until golden, and you can see the cheese in the biscuits and edges around the bottom are med - darker brown. (see pic)
-While biscuits bake, combine the three ingredients for the topping. If it is not warm, microwave it for just a couple seconds.
-Use a pastry or basting brush to brush the biscuits with the butter mixture immediately after they come out of the oven.
-Serve Warm

I dare you to eat just one.
