These easy cheddar bay biscuits are a copy cat version of what you can find at Red Lobster restaurants. They are nice and cheesy and garlicky!
Drop biscuits like these easy cheddar bay biscuits are a great side dish. They don’t require and yeast. No rise time is needed. There is no need for rolling, shaping or cutting either. Once the dough is mixed together, all you have to do is scoop and drop then bake. It is a cinch.
These biscuits come together by mixing some flour, shredded cheddar cheese, baking powder, garlic powder, salt, fresh parsley together. Then you whisk some milk, egg, and melted butter together in another bowl. Next up is mixing the wet ingredients into the bowl with dry ingredients. Once the dough is ready, just spoon it onto a parchment lined pan into 8 mounds.
Now they are ready to go in the oven. They cook for about 12 minutes. While they cook, you can mix up the topping. This is what really give this biscuits their wonderful flavor. It’s a mixture of melted butter, parsley, and garlic powder. When the biscuits are done baking, you brush them with the topping and return to the oven to bake for 5 more minutes. Then it’s time to enjoy. I like to serve these up as a side with soup. It’s also great as a side for salads too!
