So I am not a big seafood fan. I know, I’m weird. I have been to Red Lobster a few times over the years and I know one thing for sure. I LOVE their cheddar biscuits. Like I could eat three or four, drink some water and call it good. So, when I was shopping at Sam’s Club a few weeks ago and saw this…
I totally freaked out. I had to buy them and we tried them out that night with our dinner. The picture I had of the recipe on the box came out really bad so I’ll type it down here. I’m wondering about trying to re-create these with bisquick, some seasonings, and the butter and cheese in case I ever can’t (GASP!) find these in the future. They were a huge hit with my family so here you go.
Recipe from back of the box:
3/4 c. cold water
1/2 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 pouch cheddar bay biscuit mix (enclosed) *This is where I’m wondering if you could substitute Bisquick?
Herb Butter Sauce:
1/3 c. butter
1 pouch garlic herb blend (this is basically just garlic salt, parsley, italian seasoning, etc…, could probably just come up with a blend to your own liking and tastes)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
Stir together water, cheese, and biscuit mix until dough forms. *Do not overmix.
Scoop dough immediately into 8-10 portions about 1/4 c. each and place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
Bake 14-16 minutes or until golden brown on top. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl, add garlic herb blend and stir until thoroughly mixed together.
Spoon or brush 1 t. of butter mixture on top of each biscuit while still HOT. Serve immediately.
If you are trying the copycat versions with Bisquick to make 8-10 biscuits the box came with about 2 c. of mix. The spice pouch was about 1/2 t. and both could be adjusted according to your tastes and the size of the crowd you are serving. But seriously, who doesn’t like bread that also happens to have cheese in it? I’m not sure you could go wrong here… Have a great weekend!
