Food Fashion and Flow: Garlic Cheddar Biscuits!

Garlic Cheddar Biscuits!





If you have ever dined at Red Lobster, you are probably familiar with the garlic cheddar biscuits that come piping hot in a basket before your dinner arrives.  If you have not tried them, I must say that they are definitely ADDICTIVE!!!! I could easily eat the whole basket of biscuits by myself. I wanted to recreate them at home and I came across a recipe and added some of my own special touches to make it extra special. The secret to a deliciously flaky buttery biscuit is buttermilk. I tried this recipe with all purpose flour and then I tried it with Bisquick and both versions are delicious. So roll up your sleeves and lets get started and I must warn you, this is not diet food, so be prepared to work out and burn them off or have them in small quantities:-) 


 I am telling you these are worth making and now you dont't have to go to Red Lobster to have them!

Look at all that rich buttery goodness...Paula Deen would be proud...LOL

My son could not stop eating these delicious flaky biscuits.  They are sooo good!

Cheddar Garlic Biscuits


Ingredients

2 ½ cups bisquick

¾ cup  buttermilk

½ stick butter

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

1 cup grated cheddar cheese


Garlic Butter Topping

2 Tablespoons butter melted

¼ teaspoon dried parsley flakes

½ teaspoon garlic powder

Pinch of salt

Note: I substituted regular milk with buttermilk and added a dash of cajun seasoning to the batter.


Directions:


1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. 


2. Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter or a large fork. You don't want to mix too thoroughly. There should be small chunks of butter in there that are about the size of peas. Add cheddar cheese, buttermilkmilk, and ¼ teaspoon garlic. Mix by hand until combined, but don't over mix. 


3. Drop approximately spoonfuls of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop or a spoon. 


4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown. 


5. When you take the biscuits out of the oven, melt 2 tablespoons butter is a small bowl in your microwave. Stir in ½ teaspoon garlic powder and the dried parsley flakes. Use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Use up all of the butter. 

Makes one dozen biscuits.
