Everyone loves a Cheddar Bay Biscuit. Make yours truly homemade, in less than 20 minutes, with homemade Bisquick mix.

Confession: Sometimes I choose to go to a restaurant because of the bread that they serve with the soup or salad. This is real life for a carb addict.

I can’t be alone in this. I mean, who hasn’t gone to Olive Garden at least once just because they were craving breadsticks? Or what about those Texas Roadhouse rolls? I could easily eat a dozen of those babies. And don’t even get me started on those glorious cheesy, garlicky Red Lobster biscuits…

As it turns out, those Red Lobster biscuits (also known as Cheddar Bay Biscuits) are ridiculously easy to remake at home, especially when you use my homemade Bisquick mix recipe.

Just a few simple ingredients and in less than 20 minutes you have biscuits that taste just like the ones at Red Lobster…without shelling out $20 for an entrée. 

Red Lobster Biscuit Recipe

    12 Servings


  • 2 cups homemade bisquick mix
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely minced


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. In a bowl, combine baking mix, buttermilk, and cheese with a spoon just until combined, then beat vigorously for 30 seconds.
  3. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, until golden brown.
  4. While biscuits are baking, combine melted butter and garlic powder.
  5. Brush the mixture over the warm biscuits immediately upon removing from the oven, and sprinkle with the minced parsley. Serve warm.
