Have you ever gone to Red Lobster just so you could eat all those delicious, warm and buttery cheddar biscuits?
You don’t want to say?
OK, I will go first.
YES, I have.
Have you ever asked for more biscuts, just about the time you are about to leave, so you can put them in your to go box?
REALLY, you don’t want to say….again?
OK, I will admit I have.
There, does that make it better? : D
Anywho, I have been making several versions of the recipe for a few years now. Most of them call for baking mix and milk and of course butter. Those recipes were fine, but I wanted something a little more…..well….buttery.
I follow this blog called Chickens in the Road. She posted her version of THE RECIPE.
It looked more like what I wanted mine to look like.
So I made them.
So I ate them.
So my kids ate them.
So my kids wanted me to make them again.
So I did.
If you don’t want to go to Red Lobster and walk out with those biscuits hiding in your coat, or your purse, or a diaper bag. (come on, I know you have done it). Try this recipe.
Here is what you will need.
It is ok to throw your scales out the window for a few days after you make these biscuits.
In a bowl, add your flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, salt and Old Bay Seasoning. If you do not have Old Bay Seasoning you can substitute cayenne pepper. Stir the dry ingredients together. Add the butter and with a pasty cutter, cut the butter in.
Add the cheddar cheese, sour cream and the milk. Stir together until it is mix together, but do not over mix.
Scoop out big spoonfuls of the dough and place it into a 9 x 13 pan. In another bowl combine, melted butter, garlic powder, parsley and a dash of salt. Brush half the butter mixture on top of the biscuits.
Bake in a 450 degree oven for around 25 minutes. When they come out of the oven, brush the rest of the garlic butter over the biscuits.
Don’t you just want to take a fork and grab one.
These are super easy to make!
It is the closest version I have tried to the Red Lobster biscuits.
These are perfect with soup or with a meal or with a snack or with a glass of milk or with a…….gee I got to stop.
Try these and let me know what you think?
