Cheddar and Herb Biscuits

feel my spatula

Been lurking for a little while, thought I'd jump into the fray. =)

So, I was feeling like having meat for dinner last night so I cooked up some Italian sausage, but wanted something carby to go with it. I was home early after the dentist for pre-crown work, so I wasn't as tired as usual, so I thought what the heck...

Cheddar and Herb Biscuits
Source: http://forkinit.blogspot.com/2010/09/cheddar-and-herb-biscuits.html

The only change I made was the cheese mix. I didn't have the full amount of plain sharp cheddar, so I used about half sharp and the other half was a mild cheddar/Monterey jack mix. Once the buttery topping is added, it's pretty darn close to Red Lobster's biscuits (I would die happy if I ate myself to death on those!).

And, once cold, a 10-12 second zap in the microwave and you're good to go.

My camera died before I could get a picture of them butter-topped.

They are yuuuum-my. I'm craving one now, but they are 12 miles away.

Ooh, I like your version better than the one I have in my files and used to make a lot. Now that I'm single I don't dare make them because I would eat the whole bunch all by myself.

But hey, maybe I'll make some just to try out the differences between your's and mine. Yeah, that's the ticket! Justifications R Us! *snicker*

Thanks for reminding me of how good these things are. Mmmm, I think they'll go great with the chicken noodle soup I made yesterday.

Yeah, that's my only problem...I'm single but I'm kind of selfish and don't want to share with co-workers! lol I suppose they would freeze okay.

Ooooh, I think they would go with chicken noodle soup fantastically!

Oh yeah. I make it from the whole chicken so it takes 2 days but it's SO worth it. I have a cold so that seemed just the thing.

Think I'll have that tonight; thanks for the idea!

Sounds delicious... hope your cold is better soon.

You're welcome! I love spreading the news of good eats. =)

I totally agree. I am definitely making this one.

So I made these roughly 5 seconds after seeing your post and I'm sitting here eating them now. They are AMAZING. I grew up eating at red lobster all the time and now where I live the nearest one is about 2 hrs away. I used all butter instead of part shortening, but I'm sure its just about the same. Mmm.

LOL *counting down until end of work day*
Glad you are enjoying!

I need these biscuits in my life!
turple_purtle 12th-Apr-2012 08:32 pm (UTC)

I agree. =)
ne_jyam 14th-Apr-2012 03:22 am (UTC)
Okay I just made these using bacon grease instead of shortening. Don't think I need to tell you how amazing they are 8D

Oh maaaaaaaaaaan, I need the weekend to come so I can try these. It's an hourlong drive to the nearest Red Lobster, and I'm carless. ;_;

In all seriousness, I personally feel Red Lobster could use a revamped menu; there's so much more they could do besides breading it, plain-baking it or throwing seafood in garlic butter for 80% (not that garlic butter is bad, mind you...lol).

But if they change the biscuits, heads will roll.

LOL! I'm with you. I don't get to RL too often, but when I do I gorge myself on biscuits and Parrot Bay Coconut Shrimp. I don't like people messing up my favorites.

I actually made these two days in a row, and doubled yesterday's batch. I'll probably go for day 3 and make them today too, haha. So good! My husband wants me to make them every day forever now. :D

Also, they are super freakin' good cold too.

ROFL! Me thinks I should invest in some flour and cheese companies....

I just made these - needed a bit more buttermilk, and substituted onion powder for garlic powder, but they were terrific! thanks for sharing.

You're welcome! Glad you liked them. =)

My wife baked some yesterday using the recipe from the source you gave above. Very delicious!
