Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit Recipe

If you live in the United States, there is a high probability that you've been to a Red Lobster and tasted their mouth-watering cheddar bay biscuits. The garlicky, cheesy, doughy, fluffy bread defies even the most meticulous food critic's taste bud logic. How is it possible that such savory explosion can explode in one's palate from just a single bite of this delectable appetizer?

One may never know. 

However, I found this Red Lobster mix from the grocery store and almost had a heart attack at the store. Could it be? The secret to their recipe? Well, not really. I mean they provide a bread and garlic herb mix so the identity of all their ingredients has not actually been revealed yet.

Anyways, I decided to give it a try and the results were out of this world. I couldn't believe how easy it was to make and how successful it came out from such an amateur baker like me. 

The recipe calls for:
3/4 cup cold water
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (however, I did add a little extra)
1 Pouch Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix (provided)
1/3 cup butter (I actually used 1/2 cup since I made this recipe before and had way too much butter leftover)
1 Pouch Garlic Herb Blend (provided)

1) Preheat oven to 425F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. 
2) Stir together water, cheese, and biscuit mix until dough forms (do not overmix) 

3) Scoop dough immediately into 8-10 portions (about 1/4 cup each) and place 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheet. Emphasis on the second part, the dough spreads more than I expected.

4) Bake 14-16 minutes or until golden brown on top. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl, add garlic herb blend and stir until well blended.
I actually used a convection oven rather than an ordinary oven but it still turned out fine.

5) Spoon or brush 1 teaspoon of garlic herb butter sauce onto each HOT biscuit. Serve immediately.

Final Product!

We made a total of 11 yes we did eat four before we took the picture.

I cannot emphasize enough how delicious the bread turned out. It tastes nearly the same as the bread served at the actual restaurant (I mean, it always tastes better at the restaurants). I hope you will be able to find this mix at your grocery store and be able to recreate this magnificent concoction.

And if you've never tried Red Lobster's famous biscuits, you really are missing out on the meaning of life.

Just make sure you definitely hit the treadmill after eating this guilty pleasure treat.
