Red Lobster Style Biscuits

I think I will try these. I’ve seen several recipes around the web and it would save me a bundle of cash. It’s the only thing you couldn’t make at home, until now. You know, Shrimp, Lobster, Fish all that stuff is, actually, really easy. Plus it’s tons cheaper to cook it at home.


So I went to my bookmarks to find the recipes for the biscuits. This one had lots of pictures so I chose it. Cheesy Garlic Biscuits a la Red Lobster

Here is what you will need: (The link above doesn’t give you a list)

2 cups Buttermilk Biscuit Mix (like Bisquick or Jiffy mix)
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 to 1 1/2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
2/3 cups of Butter Milk
4 Tbsp of Butter
2 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Granulated garlic (They used Garlic Salt, Yuk!!)
A few Sprays of Pan Release (Pam or another brand)

Set your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and spray a cooking sheet with nonstick spray.

Dump the buttermilk biscuit mix, garlic powder, and shredded cheddar cheese in a large bowl. Stir everything together.

Pour in the milk. Stir until combined. As with all biscuit recipes just get it combined and as Alto Brown says, “ Just walk away”. It will look lumpy and not very well mixed. That’s OK just let it set for a few minutes and the milk will be absorbed and you will be rewarded with light flaky biscuits.

Use the two-spoon method to drop lumps of the dough onto your cookie sheet.

Stick them in the oven and set the timer to 10 minutes.

Now, melt the butter and stir in the oregano and granulated garlic.

When the timer goes off (10 minutes, remember?) brush some of the butter mixture over each biscuit. Then, pop them back into the oven for another 5-6 minutes, or until they’re lightly browned.

I brushed them with the garlic-herb butter again, waste not want not.

I served them with some grilled shrimp. I put BBQ sauce on half and more of the garlic butter on the rest. The shrimp was served on a bed of Green Chili Rice. Yummy!!
