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!
