This recipe is technically a copycat of Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuit! Soft, buttery, salty and cheesy… it is the perfect compliment to dinner!
These biscuits could not be easier. Quite possibly the easiest biscuit I have ever made!
So easy in fact, I had my kids help. The 4-year old measured while the 7-year old mixed. (And then they switched of course because the other job looked more fun!) Subsequently, this is how we decided to make them “giant” cheesy garlic biscuits. I think the kids wanted to make sure they got the biggest possible biscuit. 🙂
We mixed everything in the bowl, dropped some dough on a cookie sheet and BAM! Perfect Cheesy Garlic Biscuits.
Tips for success:
I recommend getting the biscuits in the oven as soon as possible after dropping them on the baking sheet. After making multiple batches I saw that the biscuits that sat and waited for the oven did not plump up as high as the first batch.
We loved a sharp cheddar cheese for these biscuits, but I did leave mild cheddar in the recipe. The sharp does give the biscuits a distinctively different flavor and is worth trying if you love cheese! I do have to mention, when I tried ‘organic aged white cheddar cheese’, it did not melt as well and was not as pretty as the orange cheddars, but it does taste amazing.
Also, do not skimp on the salted butter bath at the end~ the fresh, hot biscuits literally soak up all that amazing salty butter and it truly makes the biscuit!
