Cheddar Biscuits Recipe – Just Like Red Lobster’s! (Well Almost)

Cheddar Biscuits Recipe – Just Like Red Lobster’s! (Well Almost)

I have to admit I’m not really a big fan of Red Lobster.  As far as seafood restaurants go there are many better ones than this big box chain.  But every so often I drag my husband, who does not eat seafood at all, to suffer thru a meal mediocre meal of chicken or steak at our local Red Lobster.  I don’t go for their seafood dishes at all, I go because I have a craving for their famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits!

I love those melt in your mouth buttery cheddar biscuits served fresh from their oven.  In my opinion that’s the best thing they serve at Red Lobster, and it’s free!  But at our Red Lobster they seem so stingy with those cheddar biscuits, bringing just one biscuit per person.  I’d gladly pay for those cheddar biscuits rather than practically have to beg the server for another round.  We’re usually told they serve them so sparingly so that you can savor them oven hot.  I’m not convinced.  I think it’s more likely that the oven can’t keep up with the demand.  I mean everyone I know goes to Red Lobster just for those biscuits!

A couple of years ago I found the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit mix at Sam’s Club.  It comes in a huge box with enough mix to whip up a ton of them.  I admit I bought a box.  It was okay, but you do have to add your own shredded cheese and butter. So basically you get a huge box of glorified Bisquick with packets of seasoning.  So I figured I can do this without the mix, after all I worked for Popeye’s Fried Chicken many years ago and we made biscuits.  How hard can it be?

Biscuits are pretty straight forward if you have a box of Bisquick in your pantry.  It’s basically Bisquick and liquid, milk, buttermilk, or water.  But was there a secret to those yummy Cheddar Bay Biscuits?  Well I went on a quest and with a bit of trial and error came up with this Cheddar Biscuits Recipe.

Okay they’re not exactly the same, but they come pretty close.  The best thing is you don’t have to leave home to have some.  Just be sure you stock some Bisquick in the pantry!

 

 

Cheddar Biscuits

Biscuit Ingredients:

2 1/2 Cup Bisquick

1/2 Cup cold butter – sliced into squares

1 Cup Cheddar Cheese – shredded

3/4 Cup Milk

1/2 Tsp. Garlic Powder

Topping:

1/4 Cup Melted Butter

1 Tsp. Garlic Powder

1/2 Tsp. Parsley Flakes

Directions:

Biscuits

Pre-heat oven to 425º

Cut cold butter squares into Bisquick.  Use a pastry blender or 2 forks.  Do not over mix.  Dough should be coarse and crumbly.

Stir in the rest of the biscuit ingredients.  Do not over mix, just be sure the dry ingredients are mixed in.

Dough will be lumpy and sticky, but it should hold together, not loose.

Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a parchment covered baking sheet – you should get about 10-12 biscuits

Bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until tops are golden brown.

Topping:

Stir parsley and garlic powder into the melted butter.

Brush on tops of biscuits as soon as they come out of the oven.

Serve hot.

The Best Darn Burger Ever!! The Butter Burger!

The Best Darn Burger Ever!! The Butter Burger!

I confess, I’m addicted to great burgers!  Where ever I go I’m always in search of the perfect burger.  I know burgers aren’t exactly healthy, but oh they are so good!  The juicier the better!

 

I’ve been to many burger joints around the world, some make pretty good burgers, others don’t.  I’d have to say one of my recent favorites, as far as fast food chains go, is Five Guys and Fudrucker’s;  and locally Teddy’s.  But little did I know my search for a better burger would end in my own backyard!  This is the Best Darn Burger Ever!!

My son brought over his new creation a few weeks ago for our weekly barbecue.  It was amazing!  We loved it so much I had him make it again last week!  He says that he was inspired by a show he saw on TV, you know one of those popular shows where the host runs around the world trying different food.  He couldn’t recall which show it was, but though the show showed the burger it never gave the recipe; he had to improvise on the ingredients. Whatever he did it turned out perfectly!

The burgers were juicy, tasty, and has just a little bit of spice.  It is by far the best darn burger I’ve had anywhere!

It took a bit of doing but I managed to pin down his “recipe”.  I’m so excited to be able to share it with you!  I hope you love it as much as we do!  These burgers will be a great addition to your July 4th. barbecue!

Divide evenly and form into 3/4″ – 1″ patties

Cut butter into  1/2″ rounds, cut as many butter rounds as you have beef patties.  Any left over butter will be used while grilling.

Cover patty with scooped out meat and flatten

Top each patty with a slice of the remaining butter mixture
