Cheddar Bay Biscuits

To a lot of folks in my area, going to a “fancy” dinner means heading to the Red Lobster.  I’ve lived in coastal areas and had fresh seafood meals enough to know that its generic at best…except for those biscuits.  Cheesy garlic deliciousness!

I found a “tastes like” recipe that comes pretty close.  If you don’t like the flavor of Old Bay Seasoning, leave it out or reduce the amount.  A little goes a long way.

Not only are these yummy, but I love the crispy little points you get from drop biscuits and there’s lots of places in the rough texture for the buttery topping to cling!

Cheddar Bay Biscuits


  • Biscuits:
  • 2 cups Original Bisquick
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 shredded cheddar cheese


  • Topping:
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Old Bay Seasoning (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. parsley flakes

Heat oven to 425 degrees F.

Combine all the biscuit ingredients in a mixing bowl.  Don’t overwork the dough, just mix enough to disperse the ingredients evenly.  Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a greased baking sheet.  Should make 8 biscuits.  Bake 15 minutes or until tops are a golden brown.

While dough is baking, melt the topping butter, then add the other ingredients.  When biscuits come out of the oven, brush them with the topping.  Serve warm.

Enjoy!Cheddar Bay Biscuits

  1. Repeat after me… Red Lobster is not seafood! If I was ever forced to go I ate salad, biscuits and the Cajun Chicken Pasta. Their seafood is revolting.
    But yes, I loved their biscuits. Didn’t realize they had Old Bay in them….

    1. Exactly! But honestly, I don’t know if they use the same spice blend in Old Bay or not. And its been so long since I wasn’t able to come up with an excuse not to go, I don’t remember tasting whether it was in it or on it as the case may be. I do like the tangyness it gives them, so I keep it.


    1. I’m not on the coast anymore, so unless I go visit my mom, it’s my only option as well. Luckily, the Hillbilly doesn’t like seafood. We have one friend though that gets us a Red Lobster gift card for Christmas every year.

          1. apparently…………whatever. HIS choice. He could stand up to her and tell her she can’t say who he is friends with or not. He told our mutual hairdresser he misses his best friend (Me) but he does nothing about it. Tells me I have made no attempt to fix things yet he drives by my house 2 – 8 times a day and has yet to stop in. I go to the town he lives in maybe once or twice a month. He can do whatever he wants. I’m done missing him.
