When I was in highschool, my culinary teacher gave me the greatest gift of all- the actual recipe from red lobster, he worked there for a little bit. I haven’t made a batch in forever but I’m excited.

The cheese bread biscuits from red lobster?!? Teach us dear anon submitter!!!

This is the easier recipe, taste damn near the same but less work, but it also makes like 48 biscuits:

cups Original Bisquick™ mix 

2 2/3
cups milk cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz) 

cup butter or margarine, melted 

teaspoon garlic powder 

1 teaspoon parsley 

1 teaspoon old bay seasoning OR onion powder 

 Preheat to 450 

mix bisquick mix, cheese and milk until a soft dough forms. 
don’t over stir, it mixes pretty
grease a pan or put parchment paper down

Put dough balls about 2 inches apart, and put in oven.
MAKE SURE the oven is completely pre heated, if you put it in before hand the biscuits will come out nasty.

Bake 8-10 minutes.

 Melt the butter in the microwave completely.
Add parsley, seasonings and stir. 

 Once biscuits are done, should be brown on the bottom, pull them out and let them sit for a moment before covering or dipping them in the butter. Dipping upside down means more coverage. 

NOW, here is the recipe I actually use:

This recipe makes 10-12 biscuits.

3 cups all purpose Flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon cream of tartar
¾ cup butter or ½ cup butter ¼ shortening
1 and ¼ cup milk 

Preheat oven to 450. 
Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cream of tartar. 
Using a blender/pastry blender, cut the butter into the mixture until it looks crumbly. 
make a well/hole in the middle of the mixture and pour ALL the milk in at once.

Now, you’ll want to add the cheese, which for this recipe you’ll want to use ¾ to 1 cup sharp cheddar.

 Use a fork to stir/fold the mixture just until the mixture is all moist. Do not over mix.

Use a spoon or scoop, and scoop 12 onto a parchment paper or a greased pan surface. You’ll want to put them 1 ½ – 2 inches apart.

Bake for 10-14 minutes, until the bottoms are brown.

½ cup butter or margarine, melted
½ teaspoon garlic powder 
½ teaspoon parsley 
1/3 teaspoon old bay seasoning OR onion powder

Melt the butter, mix and either dip the biscuits in or cover them with a brush/spoon. If there is any left over it goes super good on french bread too. 

You are a queen among bees.

True story – I was the guy in charge of baking all the biscuits at my local Red Lobster for a couple years. They’re tasty, but I’ve found better recipes online, which I can only assume this is. At the restaurant they actually make them with pre-made biscuit mix, pre-shredded cheese, and water mixed together, then braised with imitation butter and seasoning packages. Basically anything you make with home ingredients will taste better.

Thank you for that. Since this post was submitted to my blog I have received no less than five comments and several asks indicating there is a boxed mix, as if I don’t know this, and I have had to reply that homemade is better. I appreciate this proof of concept.
