Cheesy Garlic Goodness

When I was younger my parents and I would drive 45 minutes north to the "big town" near us to go shopping and out to eat. One of the restaurants we would frequent was Red Lobster. Now, I've never been much of a seafood person (I blame this on living in a landlocked Midwestern state) but I loved to go to Red Lobster. Why did I, a seafood avoider, love to o there? The Cheddar Garlic Biscuits. I LOVE them. I could seriously just eat those while everyone else ate fish. So when a recipe for these biscuits popped up on the message board last year I was thrilled. Now I admit they don't taste exactly the same and they are made from Bisquick (which makes many foodies shudder), but they are incredibly yummy. I made them the other night with the Tomato and Mozzarella Pasta al Forno.

Cheddar Garlic Biscuits (aka The Red Lobster Biscuits)

2 cups Bisquick mix
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2/3 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon parsley
1/4 cup butter - melted

Preheat oven to 450 F.
Combine first 3 ingredients until moist. Drop onto greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes, or until golden.
While the biscuits are baking, mix melted butter, parsley and garlic.
Pour over hot biscuits and serve.

Those look tasty! And don't worry, there is a place in the everyday kitchen for things like bisquick. Everyone has their shortcuts... I love pre cooked rice that you only have to microwave for a couple minutes.

I don't eat at Red Lobster much (maybe 1-3 times ever) but I do know their cheddar biscuits were memorable! I've kept the copycat recipe for sometime but never made them. I just might have to make this soon!
