Make Your Own Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Make Your Own Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits is a relatively quick biscuit recipe that goes great with soup on week nights. Unfortunately, their recipe calls for pancake mix. Anyone who knows me, knows that I don’t use mixes, ever. We thought it was a great idea, though. In the end, we took a basic pancake recipe, added vegetarian shortening to better mimic the texture found from the mix, and bumped up the seasonings to suit our taste. Their recipe does have some nice pictures, though. For the milk, you can whatever kind of milk you like: cow’s milk, goat’s milk, rice milk, soy milk etc.

Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits


For the biscuits:

2 C all-purpose flour
2 Tbs granulated sugar
1 Tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 C vegetarian shortening
3/4 C grated cheese
3/4 C milk

For the topping:

1/4 C butter, melted
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder & salt. Once that is combined, work in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse salt. Gently mix in the grated cheese. Then gently stir in the milk.

Using an ice cream scoop, drop the biscuits onto a baking sheet. Bake for nine minutes. While the biscuits are baking, combine the melted butter with the garlic powder, onion powder and parsley flakes. Once the biscuits have baked for nine minutes, brush the outside with the butter mixture and bake for two more minutes, or until they are golden brown.

I don’t know if they keep. I don’t think we’ve ever had any left over. Yum!
