Cheddar Bay Biscuits

If you saw my post yesterday for my Chicken Tortellini Soup, you may have been wondering what that bready goodness was in the background of the picture. Well, they were Cheddar Bay Biscuits! Aside from grilled cheese, what is better than a nice, warm biscuit to eat with your soup?! Today, I bring you another wonderful recipe from my bridal shower recipe book. This recipe comes from my friend, Meghann. It’s been many, many years since I have last been to a Red Lobster, but I think most people would agree when I say the best part of Red Lobster are their biscuits. And though it’s been a while since I last had one, I will always remember how those biscuits taste and these are very similar!!

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Makes 10-12 biscuits


– 2 cups buttermilk biscuit mix

– 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

– 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese

– 2/3 cup milk

– 2 tbs. butter

– 2 tsp. chopped parsley

– 1/2 tsp. garlic salt


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Stir together buttermilk biscuit mix, milk, 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder, and 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese. Drop into balls on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, melt 2 tbs. of butter and mix in parsley and garlic salt. Brush mixture onto each biscuit and bake for an additional 6 minutes or until they are lightly browned.

  7. I have made these before and they are none other than savory and delicious. They are also addictive-yum! thanks for sharing.

  8. Oh, what a flavorful biscuit that would go with so many meals! YUM.

  17. I have a thing with biscuits and these sound so delicious! I love the flavors- Yum!

  18. Oh, these cheddar biscuits look dangerously delicious! Love the parsley and garlic… yum!

    • Thanks! The garlic might be my favorite part! Just don’t put too much of the garlic salt. Some of mine came out a little too salty for my tastes!

  19. Just a head’s up – you forgot to mention the milk in your directions. This is the exact same recipe I use and they’re addictive. :)

  20. I’ve never made savoury biscuits before but cheese is my favourite so I’ll have to make these!

  21. I haven’t been to a Red Lobster in forever…..but the biscuits are the only thing I remember lol. My mom loves that place and would typically wrap a biscuit in a napkin and take it home. It was so funny to watch her do it I will have to make these for her she will flip. :) They look perfect!

  22. My girlfriend loves these maybe i’ll suprise her and make them. Ok you caught me I just want them for myself.

  23. Looks wonderful. The family will love this. Yum!

  24. I need to find buttermilk biscuits mix (I’ve never bought one before)!!! This looks great with soup or any stew! This looks so easy to make – thank god…I’m not a baker, but I think I can pull this off!

  25. I am a SUCKER for cheddar bay biscuits! I have to try this recipe out some time, it looks incredibly delicious! Thanks for sharing! Have a good one Stephanie =]

  26. Oh my goodness these biscuits look incredible! I would seriously have a hard time not wanting to eat every single one. YUM!! :)

  27. Can’t go wrong with cheesy bread!! Mmmm…

  28. Those sound just like the ones they serve at Ruby Tuesday’s now!

  29. That looks sooo good! :)

  30. You’re right, next to a grilled cheese it’s a good biscuit with soup. These look delicious. It’ s been so long since we’ve been to a Red Lobster their biscuits are lost from memory, but I’m sure these will bring it back in a hurry, only better.

  31. Bready goodness is right – these look amazing. Can I have the whole basket?

  32. Oh Stephanie, these biscuits are calling my name!

  33. Stephanie dear, these biscuits are calling out to me. I really love anything related to cheese. Absolutely delish. I really can’t wait to bake these.. Hugs..
