Copy Cat recipes are hard to get right sometimes, and those Cheddar Bay biscuits at Red Lobster are probably the one item on their menu that everyone seems to remember. Screw the lobster! I haven’t been to Red Lobster in quite a while and I think the last thing I got there was the Shrimp Scampi.
I thought these weren’t garlicy enough and could have used some more garlic. Next time I make these I think I’m going to use real garlic and cook the butter in a pan with some garlic for awhile so the butter becomes infused with the garlic. The garlic powder just wasn’t enough I thought, but the biscuit part was right on. Same recipe, just cook the butter and garlic together in a pan for awhile.
I made some breakfast sandwiches with the leftover biscuits. Just scrambled eggs, bacon, and a slice of cheese!
