Garlic and Herb Cheddar Biscuits

The flavor of these Garlic and Herb Cheddar Biscuits is mighty close to the ones served at Red Lobster. They’re seasoned with herb butter, filled with cheddar then dropped in mounds onto a cookie sheet and baked until golden.

Garlic and Herb Cheddar Biscuits

Since the early days of my blog, people have asked repeatedly for a recipe for copycat garlic cheddar biscuits. My only suggestion, is to make these when you’re entertaining as they have a magical way of disappearing making them perfect for sharing. Otherwise, you may find there’s nothing left to share but the crumbs. Biscuits, like many homemade breads, have limitless possibilities when it comes to add-ins and flavor variations. When you start with a classic buttermilk biscuit, the sky’s the limit. These biscuits can be baked in a cast iron skillet with bacon in the dough like my cheddar bacon biscuits or on a sheet pan.

Tips for Making Garlic-Herb Cheddar Biscuits

  • This recipe was specifically designed using a baking mix. You can’t adapt using self rising flour as it would require other adjustments to work.
  • You may use your favorite brand of buttermilk biscuit mix for these biscuits.
  • Packaged shredded cheese is much drier than freshly shredded cheese. For a moist biscuit, take the time to make and shred your own freshly shredded cheddar cheese.
  • Ice cream scoops help keep dough uniform in size so, they’ll bake evenly.
  • The size of the biscuits can be adjusted by the size ice cream scoop used. You can make these bite size using a meatball scoop or appetizer size using a slightly larger scoop.
