I’m sure you all have that one recipe that reminds you of a memory, right?
Well, I have one that reminds me of my husband. One of our first dates was to one of my favorite chain restaurants – Red Lobster. It was one of my first times ordering crab legs and we laughed so much because it took me twice as long as him to finish my meal due to all the shell cracking.
Regardless, a year later, I wanted to impress him with my cooking skills, so I planned to make a super special meal — including biscuits similar to the ones we had eaten at Red Lobster. I can’t recall what all I made, but I know it was the first time I made these little copycat “Cheddar Bay” biscuits. I still have the recipe on a tiny piece of paper that I wrote it on.
Anyways, these are a fab and inexpensive item to complement any meal! I especially love them paired with some chicken on the grill.
- 2 cups baking mix
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup butter (melted)
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- Parsley flakes
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Combine baking mix, milk and cheese until dough has formed. Create dough balls with the mix and place onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Toward the end of baking, melt butter in a cup in the microwave and add in garlic powder and parsley (I add in approx. 1 tsp).
Pour mixture over biscuits. Voila! Makes about 8 biscuits.
