Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

The other day while going through some old recipes, I found a hand written recipe that I had perfected years ago… it was for the Cheddar Bay Biscuits at Red Lobster. Even though I haven’t been to a Red Lobster in years, the one thing I remember liking at the restaurant is their biscuits. I think what I really loved about the flavor of the biscuits was the Old Bay Seasoning, … which is why they call them Cheddar “Bay” Biscuits.

We enjoyed them with a cup of Homemade Tomato Soup. It was perfection!

INGREDIENTS
For Biscuits:
2 cups FlourBrushing the butter topping on the Cheddar Bay Biscuits
4 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
3/4 tsp Salt
¼ tsp Garlic Powder
4 Tbsp Butter, cold
1 cup Buttermilk, chilled
1 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded

Butter Topping:
3 Tbsp Butter, melted
2 cloves of Garlic, minced
1 tsp Parsley Flakes
½ tsp Old Bay Seasoning

METHOD
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, garlic powder, and butter.
Be sure your butter is cold, and working quickly with your hands, work the butter into dry ingredients until mixture gets crumbly.
Add the chilled buttermilk and cheddar cheese.
Stir just until the dough comes together.
The dough will be wet.
Drop the biscuits into an approximate ¼ cup mound onto a baking sheet.
Continue the process until all the dough has been used.
Bake for about 15 minutes, or until biscuits are lightly golden.
While the biscuits are baking you can prepare the butter topping.
In a small saucepan melt the butter, garlic, parsley, and old bay seasoning.
Allow to simmer for a minute or two, until the garlic is tender.
Set aside.
When the biscuits are done baking, remove from oven and immediately brush with the butter mixture.
Enjoy warm.

    How much cheese?

    • Oops! Thanks for bringing this to my attention. They wouldn’t be Cheddar Bay Biscuits without Cheddar. lol… it’s 1 cup of Shredded Cheddar Cheese. If you make them I’d love to hear how you like them! :)

    JUST made these….SUPER delicious. They came out of the oven 10 minutes ago and there are only 2 left. I didn’t have old bay so it is the only variance on the recipe.

    I made these gluten-free for someone at work, using Bob’s Red Mill 1:1 flour replacement. Well, not only did she love them, but everyone else did as well!! No one could believe they were gluten-free. They baked up just like the ones using regular flour (which are SUPER delicious, BTW). Thanks for the great recipe!!

    • Love Bob’s Red Mill products! We get a lot of requests at the restaurant for Gluten Free food, so I’ve been experimenting around quite a bit. We make an incredible peanut butter cup that’s gluten free and incredible. I’ll post the recipe soon. If you like peanut butter, you’ll love these! :)
