Cheesy Garlic Biscuits Hit the Spot!

Red Lobster restaurants make a rich tasting cheesy garlic biscuit. I figured if a chain restaurant can do it, so can kitchen cooks, so into the kitchen I went, and I nailed it on the first try! Here is a sample of the results:


Cheesy Garlic Biscuits

2 cups homemade biscuit mix or Bisquick
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup cheddar cheese
1/3 cup butter
1/4 tsp. garlic powder, more or less to suit taste (I like mine really garlicky!)
1/4 tsp. (heaping) dried parsley
a few shakes of salt from your salt shaker
one shake of pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl, stir together the biscuit mix, milk, and cheddar cheese; don't overmix.

Drop by large spoonsful onto an ungreased cookie sheet, or a cookie sheet lined with a silicone baking mat.

Bake for about 10 minutes, or until biscuits are golden on top and baked completely.

In the meantime, melt the butter (I use a coffee cup in the microwave) and add the garlic powder, parsley, salt, and pepper and gently stir to mix. Immediately after removing the biscuits from the oven and while they are still on the baking sheet, brush the tops of the biscuits with the melted butter mixture. Brush heavily and use it all up--you'll be glad you did when you take your first bite!

This is such a quick and easy recipe--sure to add something wonderful to any meal. Or, do like I do and make a batch just to snack on. They're that good!

As always, it's my hope and prayer that you and your loved ones are faring well. Blessings to you!
