Red Lobster's Cheddar Biscuits (Copy Cat)

Recipe By : Todd Wilbur
Serving Size : 12 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Volume 12-08 Aug 2009

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix
3/4 cup cold whole milk
4 tablespoons cold butter -- (1/2 stick)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup grated cheddar cheese -- (heaping cup)

Brush on Top:
2 tablespoons butter -- melted
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pinch salt


Order an entrée from the Red Lobster restaurant chain and you get a basket
of some of the planet's tastiest garlic cheese biscuits served up on the
side. For many years this recipe has been the most-searched-for clone
recipe on the Internet, according to Red Lobster. As a result, several
versions are floating around, including one that was at one time printed
right in the box of a baking mix.

The problem with making biscuits using a baking mix is that if you follow
the directions from the box you don't end up with a very fluffy or flaky
finished product, since most of the fat in the recipe comes from the
shortening that's included in the mix.

On its own, room temperature shortening does a poor job creating the light,
airy texture you want from good biscuits, and it contributes little in the
way of flavor. So, we'll invite some cold butter along on the trip -- with
grated cheddar cheese and a little garlic powder.

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter
or a large fork. You don't want to mix too thoroughly. There should be
small chunks of butter in there that are about the size of peas. Add
cheddar cheese, milk and 1/4 teaspoon garlic. Mix by hand until combined
but don't over mix.

3. Drop approximately 1/4-cup portions of the dough onto an ungreased
cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop.

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

5. When you take the biscuits out of the oven, melt 2 tablespoons butter in
a small bowl in your microwave. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and the
dried parsley flakes. Use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the
tops of all the biscuits. Use up all of the butter.

Makes one dozen biscuits.

Note. Using salted butter and cheddar cheese will already add a good bit of
salt to the recipe, so only use a VERY SMALL pinch of salt until you have
had some experience making these.
