Budget Recipe: Cheddar Bay Biscuits

I don’t know why, but for some reason I was seriously craving Red Lobster this week. Maybe it’s because I’m a member of their Fresh Catch Club and received an email about their endless shrimp special. I’m a huge seafood lover but more than their seafood, I go bananas over the unlimited Cheddar Bay Biscuits. They’re buttery, garlicy and oh so cheesy. Did you know they serve more than 395 million biscuits a year? Yeah, they’re that awesome.

Though Red Lobster’s specific recipe for Cheddar Bay Biscuits is a secret, I attempted to make my own based on this recipe, from the book Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2.

The result was finger lickin’ good! They were simple to make and after 4 biscuits {don’t judge me!}, I was in carbohydrate heaven.

{what you’ll need. combine ingredients but don’t over mix.}

Click more to see how I prepared the Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

{scoop portions on an ungreased pan. bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes}

{prepare butter topping as soon as you remove the biscuits from the oven}

{melt butter in the microwave and add garlic and parsley}

{brush or drizzle the butter over fresh out the oven biscuits}

{final step: drool!}

This was my first time making biscuits and I truly had to pat myself on the back. They actually taste similar to the Red Lobster variety {though I’m sure they add tons of more butter and salt).

Note: Next time I make the biscuits {which will most likely be tonight}, I think I’ll brush a little bit of butter over the biscuits before baking them and according to Red Lobster’s site, you should add some baking soda.

Have you guys ever tried to make your favorite restaurant dish at home? What do you think of my pretty biscuits?
