Recreating a Restaurant Favorite

One of the best parts of going to a restaurant is being able to get food that you just can’t find anywhere else. Sometimes it’s a special sauce, a unique side dish or an out of this world burger – and no matter how hard we look, we can’t seem to find anything quite like our favorite restaurant’s signature dishes.

To be honest, I have tried to recreate some of my favorites, including Panera Bread’s chipotle mayo, but have not had much success. However, I recently discovered something I could recreate, and it wasn’t difficult at all.

When I was younger, I used to LOVE going to Red Lobster. It was a special treat, usually for my birthday. However, as I got older, Reb Lobster lost it’s luster… except for one thing: the Cheddar Bay Biscuits. No matter what, they were always little pieces of heaven. Even though I didn’t enjoy the majority for the restaurant’s fare, I would go simply to eat those biscuits.

But I recently stumbled across a recipe for the biscuits, and with only 5 ingredients, I was surprised how quickly and how easily they could be made.

Here’s the recipe I used:

2 cups baking mix, such as Bisquick
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Preheat oven to 450.
  • Mix baking mix, milk and cheese until soft dough forms; beat vigorously for 30 seconds.
  • Drop dough by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 min. or until golden brown.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat and stir garlic powder; brush this mixture over warm biscuits before removing from cookie sheet. Serve warm. Makes 10-12 biscuits.

When you bite into these biscuits, you’ll swear they are the real thing. Impress your friends with these tasty, signature biscuits at your next dinner!

Happy Eating.

    When I saw this pop up on Twitter, I thought you maybe made the potato pizza that we just had @ Uno’s! 🙂 but the cheddar biscuits are yummy too
