Cheddar Garlic Drop Biscuits

Cheesy, garlicky goodness made into the perfect biscuit.

Cheddar Garlic Drop Biscuits

I love Red Lobster for really one thing, the cheddar biscuits. I could eat the entire basket of them and then another. That’s saying a lot since I am not a huge bread eater. Don’t get me wrong, I love bread, but it fills me up so I rarely eat it at restaurants.

These are not exactly like Red Lobsters, but are close enough that if you have a craving for these then they would totally satisfy that craving.

Drop biscuits are my jam. NO need to roll them out and spend time using a biscuit cutter to get the perfect circle. Just mix and then drop onto parchment paper using a measuring cup. Right up my alley and makes them perfect for weeknight dinners.

These are very moist biscuits and are filled with lots of cheese and garlic. You can cut back the amount of garlic and cheese if you would like, but who would want to do that?!

  1. I love the Red Lobster cheddar biscuits, too. I haven’t had them in so long (we don’t live near a restaurant) so it’s nice to know I can make these at home with your recipe. #HomeMattersParty
