Red Lobster Cheese Garlic Biscuits
I have been making these biscuits regularly for at least 10 years now. My grandma gave me a cookbook, a fair cookbook, that has this recipe and since I loved Red Lobster back then, I decided to try these. I now see they are all the rage on food blogs and Pinterest. There are many varied versions of them, however. I have tried a lot of them, in fact we tried another last night, but this one is still my favorite. The others call for extra steps or lesser or greater amounts of ingredients and I find them either overkill or lacking in flavor, so I decided to share my version. They are SO simple to make and are a huge hit with everyone! I have yet to find a person who doesn't like them.
These go great with any meal. If you have room for them on your Christmas menu, I highly recommend them!
One of my favorite things to do is to have them for breakfast the morning after I have made them. Pop them in the microwave for about 15 seconds. YUM! I am having one right now...
2 cups Bisquick
2/3 cups milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I use medium cheddar)
1/2 cup butter
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
3/4 tsp. dried parsley flakes
Mix Bisquick, milk and cheese until soft dough forms. Beat vigorously for 30 seconds. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes at 450 degrees (until tops are golden brown).
Melt butter in microwave. Add garlic powder and parsley flakes and mix. Brush butter mixture over warm biscuits (right out of the oven).
Makes 12 biscuits.
