Wannabe Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Posted on

There are probably hundreds of recipes around for ‘wannabe’ Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits.  Why?  Because Red Lobster goers enjoy them and would like to make some at home.  I’m one who doesn’t have to have ‘all or nothing’ when it comes to things like this.  In fact, if it’s ‘close‘, it’s just fine with me, and… these are ‘close enough’ for me.

Depending on the size you make, you should get between 9-12 biscuits.


  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • **1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (Just for my hubby, I lower this to 1/4 teaspoon)
  • **1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning (Here, too, I use only 1/8 teaspoon.)  I bought my 6 oz. can of Old Bay Seasoning  for $3.69– this is used in/on seafood, poultry, salads and meats. It is a blend of celery salt (salt, celery seed), spices (including red pepper and black pepper), and paprika.  It can often be found in a store’s fish/seafood section.  See my NOTE below.


  1. Heat panggangan to 450-degrees.
  2. Combine Bisquick, milk, and cheddar cheese.
  3. Stir together gently, and ONLY long enough to moisten the Bisquick.
  4. Spoon onto an ungreased (or parchment paper lined) baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes (mine are done in 8 minutes).
  6. In a small sauce pan combine butter, garlic powder and Old Bay Seasoning.  Heat until butter is melted.
  7. Brush the butter  mixture over hot biscuits.
  8. You can eat them ‘as is’, or you can return them to the 450-degrees panggangan for 3-5 minutes to ‘crisp’ them up a bit.  Watch carefully so they don’t get ‘dark’.

* Some bakers follow this recipe:
     2 1/2 cups Bisquick

     4 Tablespoons cold butter
     3/4 cup cold whole milk
     1 heaping cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
     1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt
     2 Tablespoons Butter, melted
     1 teaspoon fresh Parsley, finely chopped or 1/2 tsp dried Parsley
     1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt

 ** NOTE:  Rather than use the seasoning that is listed above, SOME bakers prefer to replace the Old Bay Seasoning by brushing on one of the following combinations of ‘butter/seasoning’-

  • 2-4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt


  • 2-4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

OR, just

  • 2-4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

This means,… use the kind of seasonings YOU and YOUR FAMILY like!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
