Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

I’ve only ever been to a Red Lobster once in my life.

So, I honestly cannot tell you if these biscuits are as good as or even better than the ones they serve at the restaurant.
I know we ate them, my aunt, two cousins and I, but that was when I was a teenager, so for the life of me I can’t remember how they tasted.
But, if my reaction after taking the first bite when they came out of the oven is any indication then you’re definitely  going to want to give these biscuits a try.
I mean, seriously. They are that good.

Lynne takes biscuits out of the oven.

“Holy crap!”

Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits


can’t begin to tell you how in love with these biscuits I am.
I almost couldn’t stop eating them.
But I had to make dinner.

And warm, you have to eat them warm.
Well, you don’t have to, but they are just divine when they’re warm.

And the absolute very BEST part about these incredible biscuits…
They’re ready from start to finish in just 20 minutes.
Ten minutes to get those ingredients together and 10 minutes to bake.
They’re going to be a great addition to any dinner.
IF they even make it to the dinner table.

I found this recipe over at my dear blogger friend, Donna’s site, The Slow Roasted Italian, and just made a few changes to it.
