A good copycat recipe for Red Lobster's garlic cheese biscuits uses Bisquick as its base, though you can use your own homemade biscuit recipe if you desire and just add the extra ingredients to transform them into Cheddar Bay biscuits. This recipe is quick and easy, requiring only 10 minutes of preparation time and eight to 10 minutes of cooking time.
Mix 2 cups Bisquick baking mix with 1/2 cup cold water and 3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese. Roll the dough to 3/4 inches thick, and cut out the biscuits. Place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet, and bake for approximately 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
While the biscuits are in the oven, melt 4 tablespoons of butter, and stir in 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Remove the hot biscuits from the oven, and brush the top of each with the butter mixture. Serve immediately.
Another recipe calls for combining 2 cups Bisquick with 2/3 cup cold milk and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese. Drop 9 spoonfuls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheet, and bake for eight minutes at 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Brush the cooked biscuits with 2 tablespoons melted butter mixed with 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder.
