Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Today I am sharing an easy recipe for Copycat Red Lobster Biscuits! They are buttery, cheesy and the perfect side dish! Super easy to make too!

Pre lockdown our family likes to have a night out here and there. We might catch a movie at the theater, grab a bite to eat after and indulge in dessert.

The opportunity doesn’t come often, something I’m sure many of my readers can relate to, but when it does it’s a wonderful way to take in new things. It allows us to create a stronger bond as a family and get out of the same ole routine we sometimes find ourselves stuck in.

I’m not too particularly worried about it though. These experiences can be carried out in the comfort of our home, in a setting far more intimate than any physical location. Honestly, sometimes it was HARD with kids to eat out, but still, I miss it.

When indoors our family can feel free to be entirely themselves, enjoy belly laughs at the dinner table and even slurp our noodles if we’re feeling silly. No tipping required, no dress code, etc.

Our family is made up of varying tastes. One prefers Italian foods, while another can be craving Chinese cuisine. The best part of enjoying my time spent in the kitchen during this whole quarantine business, is that when the cravings hit I can usually whip up a recipe that is pretty close to a restaurants original (thanks Pinterest!).

For example, Red Lobster and their biscuits. Is there anything better? Flavored with fresh herbs and cheddar, these biscuits are so fluffy and downright delicious that I’m guilty of ordering them to go, just by themselves!

Of course, with all the new rules and health concerns we can’t just go out and grab our favorites, so, I decided to make my own version of these buttery, fluffy and cheese packed biscuits right here at home. 

This particular recipe makes a small bunch (6) but if you want more you can easily double the ingredients.
