Cheese Biscuits

I love the biscuits at Red Lobster, you know the ones. I could fill up on just those, but we haven't had a Red Lobster here in years. So I make the biscuits at home. You've probably seen the mix at Sam's, or Walmart but its not the same. This recipe is sooo close, and DELICIOUS!

Cheese Bicuits
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup buttermilk ( I cup milk, 1 tablespoon vinegar, pop into the microwave for 30 seconds, instant buttermilk!)
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese ( I just use whatever cheese I have on hand. Today was Cheddar Monterey blend)
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper, if using.
  3. In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together buttermilk and butter. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist. Gently fold in cheese.
  4. Using a 1/4-cup measuring cup, scoop the batter evenly onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. For the topping, whisk together butter, parsley and garlic powder in a small bowl. Working one at a time, brush the tops of the biscuits with the butter mixture.
  6. Serve immediately.
