Ready in 30 minutes

Like Red Lobster's


2 cups all-purpose flour; (unbleached or regular)
3 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Garlic powder
1/3 cup butter; cold, cut into chunks
2 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil
1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese; (sharp flavoured is best)
1/2 cup milk; (up to 2/3 cup)
3 Tbsp. Butter
1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes; or 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley finely chopped

Original recipe makes 12 Servings



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and garlic powder. Whisk together to combine thoroughly. Add chunks of butter. Using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut butter into flour until it is coarse, pea-sized (doesn't need to be fine). Add oil, grated cheddar cheese and 1/2 cup milk. Stir together. Keep adding milk a bit at a time, just until the dough is moistened and no longer dry and powdery. (Shouldn't be sticky, just moist enough to hold together).

Drop approximately 1/4 cup portions of the dough onto an un-greased cookie sheet using an ice cream scoop or large spoon.

Bake for 15-17 minutes. While biscuits are baking, melt 3 tablespoons butter is a small bowl in your microwave. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and the parsley.

When biscuits come out of the oven, use a brush to spread this garlic butter over the tops of all the biscuits. Use up all of the butter. Serve warm.

Yummy. I used shredded cheddar instead of grated; they were a little dry but I may have over-baked. Definitely will try again!

Very good! Recipe calls for almost 4xs the salt I would add next time. Used sharp cheddar and fresh parsley

Oh my goodness! I'm in love! These are wonderful! I had to fight off the family from eating them all up before dinner.

I used buttermilk instead of milk. The copy of the recipe I was looking at didn't list oil, though I think it will be a good idea to include next time. They were delicious.

Turned out great! I could do a little less salt.

Seems a little salty. Going to cut that down a smidge next time. But so light and cheesey!

Very close to the Red Lobster version. I actually thought they turned out a little better!
