Garlic Cheese Biscuits
Light, tasty biscuits - just as good as the ones served at a popular seafood restaurant chain.

I made these biscuits for my husband, who goes to that famous seafood restaurant, even though he doesn't much care for seafood, just for the biscuits. He's absolutely addicted to them. He tried these tonight and said that he thought they were even better than the ones at the restaurant. I did make some slight modifications based on earlier raters' suggestions and on his particular tastes. I doubled the cheese and used the extra aged super sharp cheddar. I mixed the garlic in with the Bisquik & cheese, and then I put parsley and more garlic in the butter and brushed it on both before and after baking. The biscuits turned out *extremely* light, they almost felt like they were going to float right out of my mouth.Read More
Well, the bottoms of my biscuits keep burning before they are ready. Does anyone know why this happens? This recipe was good but I had higher expectations due to the rave revues. I am not sure I will try it again. I did put the garlic powder in the batter first.Read More

These really are "lighty, tasty little biscuits"! Not sure if they're just like the ones at Red Lobster, but they sure are good! Plus, they're easy to make which is a big plus. I added the garlic powder to the mix and added some dried parsley. Plus, I brushed them with garlic butter BEFORE and AFTER baking with I think makes a big difference.... If I make these again, I'd make them again that way. Perfect wtih soup or salad!
Review rating based on the following changes: I melted 1/4 cup butter, added 1/4 tsp garlic powder, dash of salt, and dried parsley flakes, and I used a sharp cheddar cheese. This MAKES the biscuits SO much more like those at Red Lobster.
I absolutely loved the biscuits, at first I was skeptical because the ingredients and recipe seemed so simple, but they were great even my toddler loved them. I didn't know what was meant by "buttermilk baking mix" and used Bisquick. As recommended by other reviews I increased the amount of cheese to 2/3 cup and added the garlic powder to the mix before baking. Thank you Brenda for a delicious and simple recipe.
I am a Home Ec teacher, and use this recipe with my 7th graders. They love it and always ask for copies of the recipe to take home! The only modification: I make smaller biscuits with the kids, they cook all the way through and tend not to burn (we get a dozen from the recipe). Kudos to you Brenda - if a couple hundred kids can make this recipe successfully and enjoy the results, it has to be terrific!
Very easy to make! I added a bunch of chopped fresh chives tothe batter and used less butter to cut down on calories! All 12 were eaten in one night by 4 people!

These really do taste like the ones at Red Lobster! They will be a regular at my house from now on! (By the way, I brushed the melted garlic butter on before AND after baking the biscuits.) YUM!
I suppose it doesn't seem to make sense to rave about a recipe that starts with a baking mix and includes just a couple of other ingredients. I guess maybe it doesn't count that I literally had these mixed up in seconds yet I can't praise them enough. Nor does it make sense that Hubs pretty much turns his nose away from biscuits but loved these and told me so - three times. I agree - it doesn't make sense. But these are excellent. Light, fluffy, and reach-for-seconds delicious.
Very easy and tasty...my husband was very pleased with the similarity to the ones we have at Red Lobster!
I had to practice a couple of times to get the baking temp and time just right for my tempramental oven (I call it Chernobyl), but once I hit upon the right combination, I was blown away with these tasty little jewels. Now if I can just find Red Lobster's stuffed mushroom appetizer recipe, I'll be all set.
Great Recipe!! Yum Yum!
These were so good. Funny story, our power went off when these were baking & I didn't know what to do, so I threw the cookie sheet into the grill & finished baking them there! It worked and they were fantastic. Try the new mix from Bisquick - Heart Smart. At least make them a bit healthier!
This recipe has the same ingredients as Red Lobster biscuits that I make. I do, however, use Jiffy brand baking mix. The Bisquick mix makes the biscuits very heavy. I also put some garlic salt into the mix. Make sure that you pack them down a little or the tops will burn.
These are wonderful and a great change from boring bread and potatoes. I will be making these a lot and my kids (all 4 of them) loved them!
My first time making biscuits and these ended up being the most delicous I've ever tasted!! Like other reviewers I added parsely to the garlic butter, and basted before and after baking. So good!!
I tried this recipe hoping they would taste just like the restaurant ones, because I'm hopelessly addicted to them. I followed the recipe exactly the first time, and they were good, but not perfect. So the second time around, I tweaked it a little. My first suggestion would be to add a little more garlic than recommended. I stirred about a teaspoon and a half of garlic powder into the dry mix. To give the butter mix a little more zip, I added a little extra garlic powder, about half a teaspoon of salt, and a teaspoon and a half of dried parsley. I also spooned a little bit of the butter mix over the biscuits before putting them in the oven, and then spooned the rest over the tops when they were done. This time, they tasted exactly right!
these really are better then red lobster biscuit.I put some of the melted butter on the biscuit halfway through the cooking time,and the rest of the butter when it was finish.I did used 1 tsp of garlic 1 tsp of onion powder and sprinkle some parsley in the butter.And i added 1 tsp of garlic and onion powder and about 2 tsp butter and the biscuit mix.I have already eaten to of the biscuit i might end up make some more i will just half the mixture up.And i didn't have any buttermilk baking mix some i just used buttermilk.(i mean i made Buttermilk by add 1 tsp or a lil less to the milk and let iit sit for about 7 minutes.I love these biscuit you can't just eat one.(i bet you can't eat just one)
YUMMY!!! Definetly add the garlic BEFORE cooking, I used about 1/2 clove minced garlic, YUM!
Really tasty & light, so much as to eat all of them yourself and not share!
Wonderful! We have these at least every other week!
Excellent! Thanks for this recipe! I have been wanting to make these forever!!! First time was a Charm!!! Came out perfect!!
Great addition or snack time indulgence! Used bisquick and nearly a cup of cheese, added a dash of onion powder to the mix and covered in butter before, half way, and when done. Half way basting was mostly to ensure the bottoms were not burning. I added real crushed garlic and freeze dried chives to the butter. Made 8 for me. Family wants more of these now!
These are good and easy! Also, you can make these with water instead of milk and I think they are actually better because they're a bit lighter.
TRY THIS! Double the cheddar & then brush the butter mix both before and after cooking...simple to do and fabulous to eat! Even my picky eater raved about these!!!
very good. now i dont have to go to red lobster just to eat them. i did follow some suggestions including adding more sharp cheddar and garlic powder. and i also brushed the butter before and after baking
Except for adding about 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder to the dough, I made these exactly as written. My husband's first word after tasting one was, "Wow!" Must be on to something with these - thanks for a great recipe!
They tasted quite delicious! However, if you like them a little cheesier, you may want to add more cheese (maybe 2/3 cup instead of only 1/2 cup). I also sprinkled some garlic powder into the dough before baking.
My boys loved these. brushed with melted butter before and after like others suggested.
This is exactly what I was looking for! I did what a previous poster said, and doubled the garlic. 1/2 Tsp in the batter, 1/2 Tsp. in the butter. I also upped the cheese to 1 C. and added dried parsley to the melted butter. I didn't have buttermilk baking mix, so I used plain, and they were still delicious! My husband ate them all up before dinner was even on the table! I had to make a 2nd batch!
Easy and yummy!
mmmmmmmmm! I don't have to go out to eat anymore get these yummy treats! These are great!
Hi there, I cooked these and LOVED them. My daughter even loved them. She said ("make more") She never likes anything. These are so good and taste just like Red Lobster biscuits. Thank you!
I used Bisquick for the mix. Used approximately 1 cup of the regularly shredded Kraft Sharp Cheddar Cheese (pre-shredded in the bag). Added 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder to the mix. Melted the original 1/4 cup butter and added 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt and brushed on both before and after baking (I'd suggest adding a little bit of garlic salt at a time and keep taste-testing until it suites your salt tastebuds!) I made 12 biscuits out of the original 10 serving recipe and put them on parchment paper to bake. I baked at 425 degrees for 11 minutes and they did not burn or stick. With these changes, I fell in love! Thanks for a great new recipe!!
I made these to go along with an Italian dish, so I used Parmesan cheese instead of cheddar. I also added some dried Italian seasonings to the butter mixture to top them off with! These are so simple to whip up and everyone loves them!
Very good with the following changes: -Double the Cheese -Double the garlic and add half in with the bisquick and half in the butter mixture -Brush them with the butter mixture before baking and after YUM!
A nice twist on the standard biscuits! These are wonderful when following the advice of some of the other reviewers. Our family would have found them to be a bit plain if I hadn't made these few, simple changes. As another reviewer mentioned, I added the garlic powder to the mix (1/2 tsp.), as well as some chives (one tsp) and 2/3 cup of a shredded Mexican Cheese mix. They are also fine, and less greasy without the mixture of butter and garlic after baking. Thank you for a new recipe that our family truly enjoyed, and will continue to utilize for years to come!
I made these for a group in their teens and twenties. They loved it, but I thought it was a little boring. For me, it was just missing something. I used Bisquick.
We really liked these. Will make them again.
Tasted just like the Red Lobster biscuits after a few changes. I added the garlic power to the batter and doubled the cheese. I only used about 2 Tbs of butter for the top which was plenty. I added garlic powder and garlic salt to the butter and it was perfect. They need a little salt to make them taste like Red Lobsters. And I used Bisquick for the buttermilk baking mix. They are delicious!
The biscuits do expand when heated. 450 degrees is too much. I used 425. Double the cheese. Add a little salt too. Don't forget the dry parsley flakes.
My daughter says "just like (a popular seafood restaurant)"! It made 6 huge biscuits (being lazy) and the 3 of us ate them ALL! I guess I'll double the recipe and make them smaller next time...
nice recipe (but not as similar to the popular seafood restaurant's biscuits as described), still, a tasty take on regular biscuits.
I made these early this morning before it got too hot. I used buttermilk instead of plain milk and I upped the garlic powder to a full teaspoon. I dropped the dough for these biscuits into greased baking sheets so they would be a little more uniform--that really was just a personal choice. These turned out very nice.
These came out great! We love "cheesy" around here, so I added a bit more cheese (1/4 cup of mozzarella). Very similar to the popular seafood restaurant, but IOO... even better!
I just made these and they were perfect. I didnt have any problems with dryness/burning. I did add a few things to the butter mix, like onion powder and parsley. I would highly recommend these.
Quick Tasty biscuit. I used "Easy Biscuit Mixture" from this website for the baking mix. I used a small ice cream scoop to portion the batter which made about 18 biscuits.
These were awesome!! The only thing I did different is that i used the reduced fat bisuit mix and they were so light and fluffy. This is going to become a family favorite!!
I changed the milk to BUTTER MILK,way better fluffy and light ,also I basted mine at the 7 min mark with garlic butter and after at the end....after they cooled for 5 mins ...Total cook time 12-13 mins till golden.Enjoy...and I used a bleend of old and mild cheedar and lots....
These taste just like "those" biscuits! I didn't have buttermilk biscuit mix, just regular, so I just added a little lemon juice to my milk for a few minutes per a suggestion and it worked out excellent! Also, I mixed them until they were just mixed and then no more mixing, they came out nice and tender...I ate 6 of them for dinner :)
If you are looking for RL's biscuits, these are it, which is why I gave them 5 stars. YUM! I
I use this recipe often when making spaghetti or pasta. It really helps to "dress up" those everyday meals and my BF thinks I am some master chef for pulling it off!
A bit dry on the outside, but the inside was fine--this is why it calls for the butter, I'm guessing. I used Reduced-Fat Bisquick and cut the butter to 3 TBSP. This was more than enough for the 18 biscuits I ended up with. (I rolled them into approx. 1.25" balls). Overall, very good results. You might try a bit of nutmeg to deepen the cheese and butter flavors.
Very yummy! I mixed the garlic powder in the biscuit dough and then used more in the butter for the top. My whole family loved them!
Brenda says these are as good as Red Lobster's, but...she lied, they are better. I too added extra garlic to the batter and extra cheese and these were amazing. I had tried a recipie similar to these a long time ago and they were terrible. I gave up, then came across this recipie. I was worried because Bisquick seems to be a dense baking mix, but these were light and fluffy. They were a huge hit with my family, and so easy to make. Thank you Brenda!!!
I forgot to add the cheese to the mix so I spinkled it on top. These turned out fantastic!! My husband just couldn't stop raving over these. Thanks!!
Just like red lobster....my boyfriend wants me to make it everyday....Thx for the great recipe.
Just like a certain restaurant chain! Don't change a thing about this recipe, its fabulous!
Sweet, baby Jesus these were amazing! To say they were fantastic is an understatement... My family absolutely loved these. The first time I tried making them I must have read the ingredients wrong because I ended up with flat discs of still-yummy-goodness (though very crunchy). This batch was the absolute fluffiest concoction. I will take the advice of others next time and put the butter/garlic mixture on before and after. There's definitely enough in the original recipe to cover that, so making more of this is not necessary. I also used Bisquik as others did and this works just fine. Very simple and very fantastic!
Very good. I was able to make these even with slim pickins in the fridge and pantry. I, too, threw in some extra cheddar cheese. I used minced garlic in the batter as that's what I had. I added some parsley even before I read all the others' suggestions. I used reconstituted non-fat dry milk because that's what we had, and skipped the butter because that's one of the things we didn't have. This is an excellent breakfast for non-pay weeks, lol.
We only had buttermilk pancake baking mix so we used that and it turned out wonderful!
I made these last night with crab legs and scallops and they were delicious. I didn't change a thing.
Been making these for a while:) they are requested by all:) YUM!
These were so Great!! The whole pan was gone in a minute!!
Oh my goodness, these are so delicious!!! And so easy, too! I just whipped them up super fast and they were devoured just as quickly! I recommend these as an exciting, easy touch to any dinner!
Everyone gobbled these down at dinner! I followed some of the other reviews and mixed garlic in the mix and then topped with garlic butter! I have a feeling I will be making these all winter to go with our soups!
Awesome! I sprayed non stick cooking spray on the cookie sheet, and they turned out great. We like having these with cheese manicotti or any other pasta.
I was taught never to beat quick breads; I tossed the ingredients with a fork until everything was evenly distributed. It made a soft-ish dough, so rather than drop the biscuits, I lightly pressed out and cut the biscuits. Because of these, I can't in good conscience give 5 stars. The results were as advertized, light and tasty. FYI: I started with homemade baking mix. In the future, I'll add whatever dried herbs suit the meal or my whims. Tomorrow I'll make potato soup and make these with herbes de Provence; can't wait. Really glad I tried these; you should too.
Wow! These were truly excellent! Very light & tasty and easy to make! I used Heart Healthy Bisquick and added 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder to the mix before baking, as others suggested. Instead of butter, I used Smart Balance and added 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder instead of 1/2 tsp. I will definitely be making these again!
Brenda, what a great receip! I used this for my family Thanksgiving dinner and these were a hit. I couldn't believe how easy these were to make! Thanks again for sharing!
Make these ALL the time now...family dinners, holidays. They are yummy. Different texture than restaurant version, but taste is MUCH better.
These baked up nice but I will add more garlic and cheese to the batter next time. And more garlic to the melted butter. It just didn't have enough garlic/cheese flavor and I used sharp cheddar cheese. Kept the leftover dough refrigerated and will make additions and try again!
These were fast, easy and incredibly delicious! I noticed that several reviewers said they burned on the bottom so I moved my oven rack to the very top and they came out perfect, even after 12 minutes at 450. I also added some garlic powder and extra cheese to batter and brushed the butter mixture on before baking, mmm good!
These were delicious. I was out of milk so I used cream and colby monteray jack shredded blend. These turned out light and fluffy and very tender and moist. There are none left. Thanks Brenda.
Yeah, these are excellent. I added 1 tsp of garlic to the batter. I also added 1/2 tsp of parsley to the butter and garlic mixture. I used Bisquick for the baking mix. You can't go wrong with these. Real easy, delicious, and impressive.
I just ate the first one they are delicious! I used Bisquick mix instead of buttermilk biscuit mix, a full cup of cheese, & I also added 1 teaspoon full of garlic powder to the mix. I will definitely be making these again.
Delicious! I followed the suggestions of other reviewers by adding 1/2 t. garlic powder to the dough and using 1 cup of cheese instead of 1/2 cup. They were easy to make and turned out great! I will definitely be making these again.
So easy and so, so good! I also added the garlic to the dough. I was looking for something to accent dinner with things I already had on-hand and these turned out PERFECTLY. I will be making these often, I'm sure!
YUMMY! My family loved 'em! I did cook them on 425 F and added 2/3 C cheese and garlic powder straight into the batter and a little additional in the melted butter too like others suggested!
Just like the ones you get at Red Lobster. Good Recipe!!!
As written I would give 4 stars. I added minced garlic, 1 cup of cheese, 1 Tbsp mayonnaise, and milk to dough. I added 1/2 tsp of garlic powder, 1/2 tsp of garlic salt to butter. They turned out moist and had wonderful flavor. Also sprayed the pan with pam. Didn't have any problems with getting them out of pan. Thanks for the recipe.
Yum very close to red lobster. I added minced garlic and melted butter to the batter as suggested by others.
I am a HUGE fan of Red Lobsters biscuits and now that I can make something almost identical at home, I don't have as many cravings for them. Awesome side!!
These are wonderful with SOS ground beef.
Pretty darn close to red lobsters biscuits without the trip and the $60.00 bill! I, too, added more cheese, and will add more garlic the next time around. Yummy!
These are phenomenal. Easy and delicious! I added a little extra garlic powder to make them extra garlicy, and they were to die for.
Wow! How easy can you get? These were delicious and were gone in a second!
wow, really good and easy. used heart healthy bisquick, 50% rf cheddar and skim milk...and of course real butter. yummy...
These are very tender, fluffy biscuits. I added the garlic powder to the biscuit mix and also added some to the butter at the end. I used 2/3 c cheese and baked at 425 on convection for 8 minutes. They baked perfectly but still could have used just a tad more garlic powder.
My husband said they were better then the restaurant version. Yummy!
Taste wise these were excellent. They actually turned out heavier than I expected. Not quite the same texture as our favorite sea food restaurant.
So easy and goes great with almost any meal. My kids love them.
Really good! I added a touch of oregano to the butter & garlic. No leftovers on this one!
Delicious... & adding garlic to the batter is a must!
My new favorite recipe. I like more garlic in mine though. My 2 year old will wrestle you to the ground for these biscuits.
These biscuts came out great! I followed other's advice and added garlic powder to the dough and greased the baking sheet. We had them with American Chop Suey instead of regular garlic bread. I will make these again!
I don't know what I did differently than everyone else, but I didn't like these. They tasted very salty and stuck to the (non-stick) pan.
Entire family thought it was some weird shaped garlic bread, as that is the overpowering taste... what a bummer! Hope you have better luck - I'm going to look for a recipe from scratch instead of with a dense baking mixture
added a little more garlic and cheese as suggested. they were wonderful. Just like the "real thing"
