Amidst the clutter of our lives, Mr.P and I have never been disciplined enough to set a regular 'date night', at least not consistently. Eating out has not been a huge part of our lives. However when we do eat out, living in Texas, most likely we end up in a Tex-Mex restaurant. Texas is home to some of the finest Mexican food restaurants in the nation, and we do LOVE our chips and salsa - we eat as much as we can as often as we can! A couple of weeks ago when we were moving our daughter into her dorm, we took a break and went for lunch. She wanted to eat at Red Lobster, they were having an all-you-can-eat shrimp festival and she IS a fish at heart. It's been a long time since we had been in a Red Lobster and I had forgotten just how WONDERFUL the cheddar biscuits were. So warm and light and airy, they were simply scrumptious. We ate more than our share, but in our defense it was quite frankly hard to stop. After returning home - and when my tears had dried from leaving our youngest on her own - I began hunting for a recipe to bake my own delightful biscuits. Here's what I found.....
CHEDDAR BAY BISCUITS
Makes One Dozen
- 2 1/2 cups Bisquick
- 4 Tablespoons cold butter
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 3/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
WHAT TO DO
- Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease or line one cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
- Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter or a fork. Don't worry about mixing too thoroughly; there will be small chunks of butter in the mix about the size of peas. Add cheddar cheese, milk, and garlic powder. Mix by hand until combined, but don't over mix.
- Drop 1/4 cup portions of the dough onto the lightly greased or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes in preheated oven or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.
- While the biscuits are baking, melt the butter. Stir in garlic powder and dried parsley flakes.
- After biscuits have come out of the oven, use a brush to spread the garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Sprinkle a little kosher salt on the freshly coated biscuits.
These biscuits are so easy to make and are a wonderful addition to any meal.
