I look forward to the biscuit when we go to Red Lobster. I love, love, love the taste and the garlic taste to it. BUT, I don't really care for the grease and the salty-ness of it. So, I scoured the internet and look for a decent recipe that would taste, but not have the grease and overly salty. I believe I have found it and I am more than happy to share it with you.
Made it for dinner the other night with Velveeta cheeseburger mac, yum!
Here's what you need:
- 2 1/2 cup Bisquick mix
- 6 tbsp. cold butter, cut up in cubes (use the stick)
- 1 cup cold milk
- 3/4 tsp. McCormick garlic powder (NOT GARLIC SALT) * I might try to add fresh grated garlic next time
- 1 cup Kraft sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 tbsp. dried and *crushed McCormick parsley
BRUSH ON TOP (after baking)
- 4 tbsp. melted butter
- 1/2 tsp. dried and *crushed McCormick parley
- 1/2 tsp. McCormick garlic powder
Mix all these 3 ingredients and place in microwave for 15 seconds interval until butter is melted. Do this when the biscuit is almost done baking.
What to do:
- Preheat oven to 400F
2. Mix Bisquick and cold butter in a medium bowl using a pasty cutter or fork. DON'T over mix. Leave chunks of butter (think of it when making apple crumble. LOL)
3. Add cheddar cheese, garlic powder and parsley. Mix well.
4. Add milk and stir well, but don't overmix.
5. Drop a spoonful on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
6. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until top is crispy brown.
7. Take out and brush the biscuit with melted butter and serve while it's still hot.
Crush the dried parsley between your hands to release the full flavor and mix it in with the batter and the melter butter.
