We don’t make it to Red Lobster a lot thanks to my oldest son’s shellfish allergy. Despite his allergy, one of his favorite things are the biscuits you get with your meal when you eat at Red Lobster. We’ve bought the mix from the grocery store but it’s popular and not always in stock. No need to worry about that. You’ve got this copycat biscuit recipe that’s just like those buttery, cheesy biscuits you know and love.
What do you need to make these copycat biscuits?
Believe it or not, it’s pretty simple which is both a good and bad thing. They’re great to add with almost any meal. It’s bad because you’ll be making these copycat biscuits (and eating them) all the time.
Grab some flour (2 cups), shredded cheddar cheese (1 cup), baking powder (1 teaspoon), salt (1 teaspoon), minced garlic (2 tablespoons), milk (2/3 cup), softened butter (1/3 cup), and an egg. You’ll also need a bit of melted butter (2 tablespoons) and parsley (1/4 teaspoon) for the buttery topping you’ll put on at the end of the baking.
How do you make copycat biscuits like the ones from Red Lobster?
Start out by preheating your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. While the oven is heating up, add the flour, cheese, softened butter (not the melted butter yet), egg, milk, baking powder, salt, and garlic to a mixing bowl. Stir until everything is combined. You don’t want to over mix your dough or your biscuits will come out tough instead of lighter and airy.
After you have everything mixed together, scoop out the dough onto a cookie sheet to bake. I like to cover mine with parchment paper or aluminum foil. It helps to make clean up even easier. And if you want to keep your biscuits a consistent size, use a cookie scooper to portion them out. Or you can just use a spoon and make them more rustic looking. When you’ve got all of the dough onto the cookie sheet, pop it into the oven for 10 minutes.
These copycat biscuits might look done after those 10 minutes but they’re not ready just yet. Mix your melted butter and parsley together. Brush (or spoon) the melted butter mixture over each of the biscuits. Put them back into the oven for another 5 minutes for that yummy goodness to soak into the biscuits before you serve them.
