Easy homemade Red Lobster Biscuits. These Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits are made with real ingredients, including 100% whole wheat flour.
Have you ever had the delicious Cheddar Bay biscuits that are free (yee haw) when you dine at Red Lobster? My visits to Red Lobster are very few and far between, but I could eat the crap out of those biscuits if given the chance.
You shouldn’t have to shell out money to eat mediocre food (but excellent biscuits) by dining out. Making them at home is healthier, cheaper, and oh so delicious.
Also, where exactly is Cheddar Bay? Cause I want to go to there.
The bake time on these biscuits is really short, which makes them the perfect weeknight “fresh” component of your meal. I like to shred the cheese ahead of time and store it in the fridge. Mix the dry ingredients the night before or in the morning. Measure and leave the butter in a microwave-safe dish on the counter. Room temperature butter will melt more quickly and is less likely to pop in the microwave. If you line your baking sheet with parchment paper, that is one less dish for you to do on a busy night.
Once you pull these bad boys out of the oven, allow them to cool a bit, and serve with a sensible dinner (like Hidden Veggie Chili). Or…just put one in each hand, sit on the floor, and eat yourself stupid.
No judgment from me.
Red Lobster Biscuits - Homemade and 100% Whole Wheat
- 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour if given the option, buy "pastry"
- 2 tbsp vital wheat gluten
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/3 cup powdered milk
- 3/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1 1/2 cup finely grated cheddar cheese
- 1/2 tsp parsley flakes
- 3 generous tbsp butter melted
- 3/4 cup milk
Preheat the oven to 430 degrees.
Mix the dry ingredients to combine.
Add the cheese, parsley flakes, melted butter, and milk. Stir to combine. You want this thick and "craggy". The mixture should be able to stick to a spoon when held sideways.
Make balls with the dough, and drop on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 11 minutes. No more, no less!
