Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Cheddar Biscuits

When I was little, I wasn’t a big seafood fan (though that has since changed a bit!) but when my mom used to go to Red Lobster with a friend, I remember getting SO excited for her to bring me home their scrumptious Cheddar Bay biscuits. It’s been years since I’ve had one of their biscuits but last night, I made this recipe and I was SHOCKED—it was like going back in time… these (to me at least)… are EXACTLY the same thing. I couldn’t BELIEVE IT!!! My husband had never had one of their biscuits but he died over these things. I recommend serving them with your favorite soup … but we just ate them all by themselves, they’re way too good. It’s amazing too because they’re ready in about 30 minutes from start to finish! AH!

Cheddar Biscuits


  • Biscuits:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 cup shredded)
  • 1 cup buttermilk, cold
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled for 5 minutes
  • For the Topping:
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon dry parsley


  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Stir in the cheddar cheese and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the buttermilk and melted butter together until small lumps form.
  • Add the buttermilk to the large bowl with the flour and mix until a dough has formed and the ingredients are no longer dry.
  • Grease a ¼ cup and scoop out the dough with it. Place on the baking sheet, leaving slightly more than an inch between each.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes, until they are golden brown.
  • While the biscuits are in the oven, mix 2 tablespoons of melted butter, garlic powder, and parsley. Brush the biscuits with this mixture right when they come out of the oven.
  • Don’t they smell GOOD!?
