Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits Recipe

Have you ever had the biscuits at Red Lobster – the ones they bring out to your table before you’ve even ordered?  They’re always flaky and crunchy with a moist center that just bursts with flavor. Last time we went to Red Lobster, Little Man ate nothing BUT the cheddar biscuits.

Since our last visit to Red Lobster {which was a few weeks ago to celebrate my birthday}, my boys and I have brought up those delicious biscuits multiple times.  That’s why I was so frantic when my cousin recently posted a picture a copycat version of delectable Red Lobster biscuits.  I knew I had what was needed to make them in my pantry and wasted absolutely no time in rushing to the kitchen to whip up a batch!

Here’s What You Need

  • 2-1/2 cups Bisquick {I used my homemade Bisquick recipe}
  • 4 Tbs. cold butter
  • 1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup cold whole milk
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder

What To Do

  1. Preheat your oven to 400-degrees.
  2. Using a pastry cutter or large fork, combine butter with Bisquick. Don’t over mix – there should be small chunks of butter, about the size of peas, left.  My cousin didn’t have either and instead diced the cold butter into extremely small chunks before mixing it into the Bisquick.  Her’s came out just fine :)
  3. Stir in the grated cheddar cheese.  Stir in the milk and garlic powder until combined; being careful not to over mix.
  4. Using a cookie scoop or a 1/4 cup measuring cup, drop dough onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 15-17 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to brown.  In my case, I used a cookie scoop so they were about 1/2 the size they should be, but still AMAZING.  If you decide to use a cookie scoop like I did, they should only take about 10 minutes to bake.


This part is in the original recipe, but I opted not to do it because the biscuits tasted just fine without it.  I did try it on about 4 of the biscuits, though, and it’s best to throw them back in the oven for a minute or two after brushing them with the garlic butter so they don’t get soggy.

Combine 2 Tbs. melted butter, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, and 1/4 tsp. dried parsley. Generously brush over the tops of the biscuits immediately after removing them from the oven.
I can’t even express to you guys how simply amazing these biscuits are!  They taste just like the biscuits you are served at Red Lobster and you can have them without that Red Lobster price tag. I can’t wait until we have another seafood bake so I can whip out these yummy biscuits. Don’t be fooled, though, they go well with pretty much any meal!
