Great American Taste Test

I obtained a copy of America's Most Wanted Recipes by Ron Douglas from the lovely people at Atria Books.  Flipping through this book was nothing but a joy!  To see all the recipes we can make at home, most likely better tasting and cheaper is perfect for those of us who are trying to cut down on unnecessary spending on things like dining out.  There are many more recipes I can't wait to try, but of all of them, I wanted to try these Cheddar Biscuits first because I have tried other "copycat" recipes and they weren't quite right. 

These tasted JUST like Red Lobster and my husband agreed.  We have had the Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits many, many times....and a lot of those times, the basket has had to be refilled.  Though I'm not a HUGE Red Lobster fan, I love their Cheddar Biscuits, brought out nice & warm in the basket.

These came out nicely browned on the outside and light, fluffy & cheesy on the inside and the very best part was that they came together in a snap and were done in no time!


Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits
Recipe found in America's Most Wanted Recipes, Ron Douglas, page 186

Ingredients
  • 2 c. biscuit mix
  • 1/2 c. shredded mild Cheddar cheese (I used sharp)
  • 2/3 c. milk
  • 4 tbs. (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • Parsley flakes for sprinkling
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Stir together the biscuit mix, Cheddar & milk until a soft dough forms.  Beat with a wooden spoon for about 30 seconds.
  • Spoon onto a greased cookie sheet.  Smooth down the tops to prevent hard points from forming.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the tops are brown.
  • While the biscuits are baking, melt the butter in a pan and stir in the garlic powder.
  • Once the biscuits are done, brush the butter on the tops, sprinkle with parsley flakes and serve hot.

Admitted - never had the Red Lobster cheddar biscuits. But have heard about them for years. I can see why - they look super tasty and addictive!
