Cheddar Bay Biscuits – Cheesy Southern Food Side Dish

With this recipe for my version of cheddar bay biscuits, your family will be able to experience their amazing taste of them anytime you like.

Anyone who has eaten at the Red Lobster knows that their famous cheddar bay biscuits are to die for.  But there is no need to go to Red Lobster to enjoy them.

Just make them at home! Cheddar bay biscuits pm a blue and yellow napkin.

Enjoy These Cheddar Bay Biscuits at Home!

The flavor of these biscuits is very similar to those from Red Lobster and they are ready in only 20 minutes.  The garlic parsley topping gives a special touch to the warm biscuits and makes them moist and delicious.

These biscuits are so easy to make. Basically, you just mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet in another.

Mix them together and stir in the cheese. It makes a scrumptious looking biscuit dough.Biscuit batter in a metal bowl
The biscuits cook beautifully.  I use my silicone baking mat for them, but parchment paper will also work fine to line the baking tray. 

Once cooked, just brush the biscuits with the butter garlic parsley spread and eat.

Your version sounds amazing and I love the idea of adding in Old Bay. That would make them over the top, I imagine! I use a mix from Tastefully Simple that is good, but your recipe is far less expensive!

We very seldom go to Red Lobster but I agree with Heather the cheddar biscuits are the best on the menu. I just tried a copy cat of your recipe Carol using Bisquit Mix and coconut milk, because I didn't have enough flour or any buttermilk. I must say they turned out pretty good, at least the hubby thought so. He had three, LOL. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

When Hubby has three that is a great recommendation! Carol

It's the best thing on their menu!!! And since we don't have Red Lobster in too many places in Canada, it's worth knowing how to make these!!!

They look good! But you really should try adding Old Bay seasoning in and on them ( add to your butter garlic topping), just that addition really makes them taste like the real deal.
