Red Lobster cheesy biscuits! Yes, you know the ones. You order a couple baskets during dinner, then you shamefully ask them to bag you up a couple more for the road. What do they put in those delicious biscuits? What’s the secret? A trend these days is to create “clones” or come the closest possible to a restaurants secret recipe as you can. Many people have created clone recipes of these delicious cheesy biscuits but I’ll let you be the judge of what you think is the BEST Red Lobster Cheesy Biscuit clone. I’m going to show you a quick way I made the biscuits today with just the ingredients I had in my pantry but also list a couple of other sites you can get the various recipes from. I encourage you to follow along or get creative and substitute ingredients for what you have in the pantry like I did! You never know what you might cook up.
My Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits Experiment: I made these biscuits by substituting Hungry Man pancake mix for Bisquik and Pepper Jack for Sharp Cheddar as well as adding my own assorted spices because I did not have Old Bay seasoning. The Pepper Jack wasn’t quite as flavorful as I expected but the spices and garlic powder really make up for flavor. It’s definitely not a perfect match for the Red Lobster biscuits (with the Pepper Jack) but it’s pretty delicious on its own! Here’s my altered recipe (altered from recipe by Bonesmello):
Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits Recipe Clone:
2 cups pancake mix
2/3 cup milk
8 oz. pepper jack cheese, shredded
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. Old Bay seasoning
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 cup salted butter
1) Preheat oven to 450° F
2) Mix together pancake mix, Milk, Cheese, Old Bay, and 1/4 tsp. of Garlic Powder
3) Drop onto Parchment Paper (opt) or Greased Baking Sheet
4) In separate bowl; melt butter and mix in 1/4 tsp. garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
5) Spread butter mixture on top of biscuits
6) Place in oven and bake for 8 – 10 minutes (or until golden brown)
7) Allow to cool for 2-3 minutes
