Ok, let’s face it!  A visit to Red Lobster wouldn’t be complete without those mouth watering biscuits!  Buttery, flaky, cheesy and garlicky… all of my favorite things in one little bundle.  Yummy!

It’s really easy to recreate these biscuits at home!  Who knew it was so simple?  I’ve made two separate versions of this recipe…  one uses biscuit mix (such as Bisquick) and the other is from scratch.  While both are delicious, the homemade from scratch is my favorite way to make fluffy garlicky biscuits!

Did you know it’s quite easy to make your own homemade Bisquick as well?!  It’s easy, inexpensive and any extras can be stored in the cupboard!

  1. These are very good. They have a more homemade taste to them than the Red Lobster ones. The only thing that I would recommend is making sure you spray your parchment paper. My biscuits stuck really bad to it. Also, I topped my biscuits with some more cheese and garlic salt…not a huge change but I never can get enough cheese or garlic salt. Overall, I’d make them again. Quick and tasty!

  2. Just made this recipe. It made 9 huge biscuits and they were ok. Didn’t really taste like Red Lobster’s version though. Some things I would change include increasing butter and cheese to a cup and adding much more garlic OR reduce the amount of flour.

  3. My three grandsons love these biscuits – I purchase the ‘box mix’ – looks like this may be worth a try! Terri
