This is a copycat recipe for the Cheddar Bay Biscuits at Red Lobster.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (unbleached or regular)
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup butter, cold, cut into chunks
  • 2 Tbsp. canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese (sharp flavoured is best)
  • 1/2 – 2/3 cups milk
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes or 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and garlic powder. Whisk together to combine thoroughly.
  3. Add chunks of butter. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut butter into flour until it is coarse, pea-sized (doesn’t need to be fine).
  4. Add oil, grated cheddar cheese and 1/2 cup milk. Stir together.
  5. Keep adding milk a bit at a time, just until the dough is moistened and no longer dry and powdery. (Shouldn’t be sticky, just moist enough to hold together).
  6. Drop approximately 1/4 cup portions of the dough onto an un-greased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop or large spoon.
  7. Bake for 15-17 minutes. While biscuits are baking, melt 3 tablespoons butter is a small bowl in your microwave. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and the parsley.
  8. When biscuits come out of the oven, use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Use up all of the butter. Serve warm.
*Makes one dozen biscuits.
