I’ve got a great little recipe for you today, my friends. 
Isn’t that what you came for?
A recipe 
And only takes a little bit of time.
I thought so!
If you’ve eaten at Red Lobster you know the best thing swimming around that joint are the Cheese and Garlic Biscuits. 
The live Lobsters they having swimming in the front lobby may also be very tasty. 
Never tried them. 
Too busy with the biscuits.
Also not in love with making eye contact with my dinner.
If you hate fish (and Red Lobster)
please don’t hold it against these beautiful biscuits. 
They are buttery
and garlicky
and cheesy
melt in your mouth delicious.
Hope you make them today! 

Red Lobster Cheese and Garlic Biscuits

Time: 10 minutes prep + 10 minutes baking 
Yield: 12 biscuits
Recipe adapted from All Recipes
1 3/4 C flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking powder
pinch granulated garlic (or garlic powder)
1 t dried parsley
5 T cold butter
1 C milk
1 C cheddar cheese, shredded
3 T butter, melted
1/8 t granulated garlic (or garlic powder)
1. Get your self a large bowl. Toss the flour, salt, baking powder, pinch of garlic and parsley together to mix. 
2. Cut your cold butter into chunks. 


3. Add the butter chunks to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry blender cut the butter into the mixture. 
Keep mixing until it looks like coarse crumbs.  Should only take a couple of minutes. 
4. Make a well in the bowl. 
Pour your milk right on into that well. 


Using a wooden spoon and mix the ingredients together. Don’t over mix here. You should stop mixing just before everything is incorporated.
5. Toss your shredded cheddar into the bowl and stir just until incorporated. 
 Yes that’s me in the spoons reflection, holding the camera, wearing a big striped apron and no makeup. I don’t get too dressed up for biscuits. Just sayin.
6. Spoon the dough onto a large cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. 
7. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes, or until golden and crispy along the tops and bottoms.
8. To your 3 T melted butter add 1/8 t of garlic. 
9. Brush the hot biscuits with the garlic butter and serve. They are best served warm from the oven.

  1. Hi Joy,
    So sorry, but there are two errors in the recipe you printed off. The corrections have been made now if you would like to print it off a second time and give it another try. You need baking powder, however the original flour measurement was off. You need 1 3/4 cup instead of 1 1/3 C. Sorry for your wasted time and ingredients! Hope you try them again and they turn out well.

  2. found this recipe on Pinterest. Just wanted to let you know that every time I make these people absolutely love them (as do I)!

  3. Easy and yummy! Great to whip up for a quick side. .. I think they would also be really good with a spicy ranch dressing. 🙂 Thanks again Jamie~! I'm sure I'll be on your blog often!

  4. Do you think you can make the batter ahead of time and them just pop the cookie sheets in the oven closer to dinner time? (I am always looking to do the prep work ahead)
    Cant wait to make these with the crispy chicken!

    1. Anonymous,
      I haven't ever tried making the batter ahead of time. My thoughts are it might not work super well, because of the baking powder? But, I could be wrong. 🙂 I'd love to know if you try and how things go. Good luck!

      1. Lovely, romantic post, Carolyn. I alyaws wondered how you got those beautiful soft looking photos. Thanks for explaining.I’m especially enjoying your music this morning. I have the CD that contains “An Irish Blessing”…just beautiful! I think I’ll go put it on right now.Thanks for the delightful interlude today.fondly,Rett

  5. Hmmm I mayhave to try these and flash freeze a biscuit or 2 to see how they do .. would be great to make a batch and have them ready in the freezer to throw in the oven as my husband tends to bring some of the single soldiers home for dinner. Spaghetti or a Alfredo dish would be super yummy and a treat for them.

    1. Hi there,
      The small t stands for teaspoon, the upper case T stands for Tablespoon.
      Good luck!

  6. Sorry, but even with the changes you made I found these to be flat, way too cheesy, and not nearly enough garlic to compre them to Red Lobster’s. I’ll keep looking for a copycat recipe. However, my kiddos did like them. My husband and I, not so much. Might be a recipe I can tweak enough to make it work. Thanks, though.

  7. I’ve tried a few Red Lobster copy cats & so far this is my favorite! They were a little flat, but the flavor/texture was wonderful. I’ll add a little more garlic next time…I was too worried about over doing it first time around;) Thanks for the recipe!
