Can I just tell you the truth?
I mean, I’ve been living this lie for awhile and I honestly think it’s about time I come clean.
I don’t really like Red Lobster. I use them for their biscuits.
Phew! I am SO glad to get that off my chest.
Who wouldn’t love those yummy, buttery, cheesy biscuits? It’s a fabulous marketing technique. Give the people something for free that is so absolutely scrumptious that they don’t really care if their entree isn’t up to par.
I have outsmarted them though.
For so long I’ve seen copycat cheddar biscuit recipes on the internet. Of course, I never tried them. I worried that A.) they wouldn’t be good OR B.) They WOULD be good and that many cheddar biscuits in my house seemed like a recipe for cardiac arrest.
Today though, I happened upon this recipe from Two Of A Kind Working On A Full House.
I loved that the recipe didn’t require I make 3 dozen biscuits and even suggested making them in a mini muffin tin.
Now I don’t have a mini muffin tin, so I just made mine in a regular muffin tin, but the results were still absolutely stellar.
In fact, after I handed the biscuit to my husband, he’s only response was, “wow…this is it. This is it“.
I bet you $10, you have the ingredients to make this on hand. So make it. Now.
Garlic Cheddar “Copycat Red Lobster” Biscuits
adapted from Two Of A Kind Working On A Full House
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup milk
- Preheat your oven to 400.
- Combine all of your dry ingredients together.
- “Cut” in the COLD butter using two forks or whatever technique works best for you. You want the flour to take on a crumbly consistency. Don’t overwork it, you don’t want the butter to warm.
- Add your milk and cheese and mix until the flour is fully moistened (once again…don’t overwork it.).
- Spray your muffin tin with cooking spray.
- If you have a mini muffin tin, you can drop by the tablespoon full. I did not, so I made 10 biscuits just by eyeballing even portions.
- I let it cook about 15 minutes and it was done perfectly. I say start checking at around 10 minutes. They should be slightly golden brown on top.
- Eat and enjoy!
