I have not personally eaten the real Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits at a Red Lobster Seafood Restaurant, although my husband said it’s out of this world. I then managed to get a box with the mix and made that. He said, it tasted exactly like the real thing. I decided that it cannot be that difficult to prepare it from scratch, so here we go:
2 cups all-purpose flour (I used blending flour – its only finer and easier to mix)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
½ teaspoon kosher salt (I used regular table salt)
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional (next time, I will omit this, as I am not fond of cayenne pepper)
1 cup buttermilk
½ cup unsalted butter, melted
1 ½ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (next time I will only use 1 ¼ cup)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves (I used ½ tablespoon bottled parsley, but it will be better to use fresh)
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper, if using.
In a large glass measuring cup, whisk together buttermilk and melted butter. Be quick, or the butter will set in the milk, if cold. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist. Gently fold in cheese.
Using a ¼-cup measuring cup, scoop the batter evenly onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
For the topping, whisk together butter, parsley and garlic powder in a small bowl. Working one at a time, brush the tops of the biscuits with the butter mixture.
***Bakers note for a next time:
1. I will omit the cayenne pepper, as I am not a fan of it, but as this was an experiment, I used it.
2 .I will use a little less cheese.
