I’ve been told that this could be considered a copycat recipe for Red Lobster’s cheese biscuits… I’ve only had those once, and they were really good. But I’ve had these many, MANY times… and they just get better and better.
I’ve made these a million times… and despite the fact that I love to make regular biscuits from scratch, these really work best with Jiffy mix or Bisquick. So that’s the main reason I keep biscuit mix around.
These have got to be one of the guy’s favorite things… his eyes get huge every time I make them, and whenever we have cheese biscuits somewhere else, he gobbles them up and licks his lips, then says, “Yours are better.”
I based my recipe off of this one from Allrecipes, but added/changed some things. First, I usually double the cheese. Even a cup and a half is an improvement, but two cups is better. I don’t measure the garlic, but I am sure I use more than they say to.
Then, when it says to brush with butter and sprinkle with garlic salt and parsley, I mix the garlic salt and Italian herbs (instead of parsley) in with the butter, and just brush it. No sprinkling. And again, I probably use more of all of this than they say to.
And when they’re done baking, I brush more butter/herb mixture on them for good measure. It’s delicious.
