Red Lobster Biscuit Recipe
I think I’ve only been to Red Lobster twice in my life. The last time was probably in… 2004? I honestly can’t remember. But what I can remember is those pillows of cheddar goodness. When I was in high school, I found a Red Lobster Biscuit Recipe that was pretty good but I can’t remember exactly what it was and I’m pretty sure it used Bisquick. I don’t have anything against Bisquick, I just don’t usually have it on hand.
Anyways. I was searching Pinterest for some ideas for our fall-themed cooking club and when I saw a biscuit recipe, the lightbulb came on. While these might not be the healthiest side dish on the block, who can turn down a cheddar biscuit? I went rogue and came up with my own recipe since all the ones I could find online used pre-made biscuits or Bisquick. I was really excited about how these turned out!Print

- Remove from the oven and brush with the butter + garlic mixture.
- Pop them back in the oven for 6 minutes until just beginning to brown.
I brought a plate of these to last night’s cooking club dinner and I think they were a hit! I probably should have made a bigger batch, because I’m sure Alex wouldn’t have minded me bringing home leftovers!
They were best right out of the oven, but they were pretty good at room temperature as well.
In other news, the inspection for the house is tomorrow so we’re praying that goes smoothly. I’ve been pinning like a mad woman and I just want to move in and make the house a home! You can see some of my favorites on my I Heart Homemaking pin board.
Have you ever had a cheddar biscuit?
I am the BIGGEST seafood fan but it was these biscuits which made me consider them better. Genius.
Pinning, winning and grinning.
These look so good! Wishing you luck on your inspection! 🙂
Oh my gahhh the best part of Red Lobster is the biscuits. Hands down. Do people even go there for the actual food?
I have no idea. I’m pretty sure the biscuits are really the only thing I’d want!
Oh heavens – I have been trying for the longest to make a copycat Red lobster biscuit and been unsuccessful so far – but that’s about to change I see! Thanks so much for this!!
I hope you love it! 🙂
These look lovely and light and sound so appealing coming warm straight from the oven…mmmm! Like Dannii said, in the UK our biscuits are like your cookies. I think we would probably call these scones.
Haha that’s too funny- I can’t imagine a cheddar cookie 😉
I’ve never actually eaten at Red Lobster, but I do remember my dad bringing home biscuits for us after work lunches. 🙂 SO good!
Def. pinning this recipe! Good work, Liz!
It’s funny, because biscuit means something different here in the UK. Here, a biscuit is a cookie. But I have been to the states a few times and tried these kinds of biscuits. I love them and really need to try making them myself.
Haha that’s too funny! I hope you try this kind of US Biscuit 🙂
My husband will be so happy that I found this recipe! Thanks for sharing!

Honestly, my favorite part of red lobster is the biscuits so this is speaking to my soul.
No one can resist the bread basket when it contains cheddar biscuits! 😉
I’m the same as you — I think I’ve only been there once or twice, but I ALWAYS hear about their cheddar biscuits, ha. Nice job on this recipe! I’ve never thought to make biscuits before 🙂
