This week’s 52 Weeks of Baking Challenge is to recreate a restaurant or store-bought food. I went with Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits!
Cute Husband loves these buttery, cheesey, garlicky biscuits but, as this is probably the only menu item we could/would eat at Red Lobster (on account of the vegetarian thing), he never gets to have them. I followed this copycat recipe from Good Morning America. I’ve seen it elsewhere online as well. It’s easy and they come together quickly.
These biscuits are insanely good. We each taste-tested one and I’m sending the rest off to work with Robbie because it’s too dangerous to keep them in the house.
I haven’t been to a Red Lobster since the mid-90s so I can’t weigh in on their authenticity. Robbie says they look and taste like the real thing and they taste awesome to me so I consider it a success. I think these would be great for Thanksgiving instead of serving a plain roll. Pretty sure they could be made a day or so ahead of time and refrigerated, saving the butter/parsley/garlic powder step for after they’ve been warmed up just prior to serving.
