So I’ve made Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuits before, and they were pretty good. I had some leftover bisquick, milk, and cheddar/monterey jack cheese, so I figured, why not make them again? I thought I’d try a different recipe, so I found one with rave reviews that added cold butter to the mix.

I couldn’t believe how much of a difference it made. These biscuits were A-MAZING! Fluffy, buttery, cheesy, and just plain awesome. Also, I read somewhere that the topping for the real biscuits is their scampi sauce, so I added some white wine to the melted butter topping.

I didn’t bake as long as the recipe said, maybe 12 minutes. They browned a little and tasted great with the melted butter softening the top. I made 5 biscuits by halving the recipe.

-These really need to bake for 15-17 minutes. Also, I would like to try a homemade version from Jamie Cooks it Up. I think i’m getting sensitive to the bisquick because these weren’t as good as I remembered.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix

BRUSH ON TOP

  4. Mix by hand until combined, but don’t over mix.
  5. Drop 9 equal portions onto greased cookie sheet.
