Faux Red Lobster Biscuits

Red Lobster is one of my all-time favorite restaurants.  My mom & I used to eat there on shopping trips and on her doctor appointment check-up days.  We called it our “good news” restaurant.  I really miss getting to go with her, but I have continued the tradition of “girl’s day” with my grandmother and aunt and we eat there when we go shopping.

One of the best things there are the cheesy garlic biscuits and I have tried and tried to duplicate them with no luck.  However, I recently purchased a bottle of garlic bread seasoning and decided to try these biscuits again.  Eureka!  The taste of these is very, very close to the real deal.

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 1/2 self-rising flour

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 tbsp garlic bread seasoning

2 tbsp unsalted butter


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine the whipping cream and 1 1/2 cups flour to form the basic biscuit dough.  Stir in the cheese and seasoning just until combined; don’t over mix this or the biscuits will be tough.  Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a lined baking sheet or a pizza stone.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the tops are just starting to brown.  At about the 15 minute mark, melt the butter and set aside.  When the biscuits are done, pull them out of the oven and immediately brush the melted butter over them.  Let the butter soak completely into the biscuit and enjoy!
