Have you ever devoured a basket of cheddar garlic biscuits at a Red Lobster restaurant before your main entree arrived?
These are so good that I wanted to make a large batch but came to my senses realizing I’d be eating them all and should practise some self-control.
Besides, they are so quick and easy, I can always make more tomorrow. Great to serve with soups and salads.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
- 6 tablespoons cold butter
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup of dried parsley
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- rounded 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray.
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, seasonings and dried parsley.
- Cut in the butter until small pea-sized crumbs form.
- Add the cheese and toss until coated with flour.
- Add the buttermilk and stir until just combined - don't overmix. Drop by 1/4 cup fulls onto the baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
- Bake 14 - 16 minutes until golden around the edges. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine melted butter with garlic salt.
- Remove the biscuits from the oven and brush butter generously over the tops while hot. Best served warm.
