These tasted almost exactly like Red Lobster's garlic cheddar biscuits after adding 1/2 tsp. garlic/parsley spice mix. Soft on the inside and crisp on the outside after 20 minutes. I was looking for something quick and all of the recipes for rolls that I looked at took over 2 hours so I tried this (without the raisins) and it was terrific! They went great with the barbequed chicken salad and mashed potatoes! Read More

My husband didn't like the exact recipe so I altered it a little bit. I replaced the paprika and raisins with garlic and ham. Now he'll eat them no problem!:) Read More

We loved these! They are probably one of our favorite muffins and we've made a ton of muffins. My 2 and 3 year old loved them which is a plus as well! I used all ingredients as listed but had to add an extra 1/2 cup milk to the batter since it was way too thick. I also adjusted cooking time/temp (personal preference with my oven and prior muffin trials) to 375 for 22 minutes perfect! I got 11 standard sized muffins had to leave one tin empty. I will be making these again very soon I'm sure. I think I would decrease the salt to 1/2 teaspoon since it's a tad salty along with the additional milk and everything else stays the same. Love the slight paprika taste -- the cheddar and raisins go great together! Thanks so much for this recipe! Read More

Raisins? I didn't add raisins to the cheddar muffins...but aside from that I made it exact and was not a huge fan. They turned out a little dry. I will try adding some ham though because they were quite filling and my hubs would probably like to take them to work for lunch if it were like a muffiin sandwich...a mandwich! Read More

Swapped out the raisins for chopped scallions and these were the perfect savory muffin to go with a big bowl of vegetable soup. Leftover muffins were terrific with an egg for a hearty breakfast. Read More

I read the reviews and made modifications accordingly. Cooked them at 375 for 22 minutes and added another 1/2 cup milk. I used wheat flour garlic salt and a special spice I have (minced garlic minced onion & lemon flakes) and added quite a bit of that. I also added chopped up raw onion (altho I think I would saute those next time) chopped roasted green chili and chopped fresh spinach. Skipped the raisons totally as that didn't sound at all appealing. I will make these again and maybe add some ham YUMMY!!! Another reviewer had it exactly right..these taste like the cheesy muffins at Red Lobster...great recipe...Thanks... smile Read More

These muffins were extremely dry and were like hockey pucks once they cooled. I did over mix a bit but even still I would not make these again. Read More
