Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Just like the ones at Red Lobster, these drop-style biscuits go great with just about any kind of meal. Do NOT use margarine instead of butter.


  • 2 ½ cups Bisquick baking mix
  • ¾ cup cold whole milk
  • 4 TBS cold butter
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup sharp or medium cheddar cheese, grated


  • 2 TBS butter, melted
  • ¼ tsp dried parsley flakes
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • pinch salt


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter or a large fork until there are small chunks of butter that are about the size of peas. Add cheddar cheese, milk, and ¼ teaspoon garlic. Mix by hand until combined, but don’t stir.

Using an ice cream scoop drop blobs of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet . Use the kind with a sweeping mechanism that clears out the scoop.

Bake for 17 to 20 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in garlic powder and parsley. Use a basting brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits.

Makes about a dozen biscuits.
