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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More
