SOURCE: The best part about Red Lobster are those Cheddar Bay Biscuits. You walk in, get your table and they bring you a large basket of those soft, buttery, cheesy, garlic-y rolls of heaven. you cant just eat one. THEY ARE SOOOOO GOOD!! I remember when my friend was getting married and I went up to chicago to help her go Dress Shopping etc. we stopped for lunch at Red Lobster, famished from the long morning of trying on dresses and trying to figure out bridesmaid dresses and whatnot. That waitress brought by our tin of biscuits and we just about gnawed her hand off...then we took extras to go. Thats how addicting they are.
My Aunt Bert submitted this recipe to our family cookbook and although they arent EXACTLY the Red Lobster bicuits, they are pretty darn close. One night last summer we had a whole house full of people staying with us for a week. We bought Alaskan King Crab Legs and steamed them and made these biscuits to go with it. Felt like we were at the restaurant!
In a bowl mix together:
2 cups muttermilk biscuit mix
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
mix with wooden spoon until soft dough forms. Beat Vigorously for 30 seconds.
Drop dough by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 450 for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
HERE IS WHAT MAKES THEM SPECIAL!!!
While they are baking melt 1/2 cup butter.
To this add 1/2 tsp-1 tsp garlic powder(to taste)
As soon as those biscuits come out of the oven, brush them with this melted butter/garlic powder solution.
It will seep into the cracks and crevices and lahlahlahlahalahlahlahalhalahlah(drooling here)
