Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Sharing is caring!

Love Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits? Check out this copycat recipe for an even better version than the restaurant's biscuits.

You know that when a recipe is made multiple times in a week — it has to be good — and that is what we found when we made these delicious Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

We visited Red Lobster not too long ago and had their complimentary cheddar biscuits. Y'all — those little puffs of heaven are so full of flavor. Everyone in the family fell head over heels in love with them.

We knew right then and there that we were going to come home and experiment until we got the perfect cheddar bay biscuit complete.

We have made this recipe so many times now, we could make them in our sleep! They are super easy and your family will be wowed that you made them from scratch.

How to Make Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

She has made these biscuits SO many times now, that she doesn't even need to use the recipe anymore. And we love the addition of fresh parsley and butter on top.

You can get fresh parsley from the store, but if you still have some flourishing in your herb garden as we do, then, by all means, use it.

I caution you though — you cannot just eat one. They are addictive.

Start by mixing all your dough together, add your spices and your shredded cheese. Then drop them by spoonfuls onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or one of these awesome silicone mats.

We use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to make sure our biscuits have all the same proportions.

Then, bake them in the oven. When they come out, brush on some delicious butter and then serve to your friends and family.

These biscuits would go perfectly with my Mongolian Ground Beef Noodles recipe or even my Grilled Steak Alfredo.
