My husband has a weakness for the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits. He isn't a seafood fan but will take me just to partake in biscuits. I had to start making them at home when he started asking me to stop JUST for the biscuits. That is how this copycat Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuits recipe came to be!
CopyCat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits Recipe
So right after I got married I took a job waiting tables at Red Lobster as I settled into my new life as a Navy Wife. I also put on about 15 pounds int he few months I worked there. Anytime I had a free minute I was sneaking into the back to munch on biscuits. Many times I would miss lunch or even dinner working and this was my meal substitute. Sad but true.
While I waited tables and didn't do the baking I did help out and when we were busy EVERYONE helped put biscuits in the oven and take them out. If you could get to the biscuits first you had them for your tables which made them happy which would equal better tips. If you get there last and didn't get biscuits some tables would get downright mean and your tips would start slipping away. In general, more biscuits would equal more tips.
Making them at home is a huge money saver but there is nothing quite the same as eating them in the atmosphere of the restaurant. If you are heading in make sure to check our any Red Lobster gift card deals they might be having to make your money stretch even further.
To save time and make my life a bit easier I use Jiffy mix as the base. Start with the basic drop roll recipe on the side of the box.
2 cups Jiffy mix
2/3 cup milk (+ a little more if needed)
Colby Jack Cheese
1/2 Stick Butter
Mix together Jiffy mix and milk add in garlic powder, garlic salt and parsley to taste.
Add Colby Jack Cheese to taste. I normally add in 2 huge handfuls.
At this point, I tend to need to add a splash or 2 more of milk to mix it all together.
Form 2 inch round balls on a greased baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes according to side of Jiffy Mix.
Close to end of cooking, melt butter and then mix in a few pinches of parsley and garlic salt to taste.
As soon as you pull the biscuits out brush them with the butter-garlic mixture and serve!
