Cheesy Melt In Your Mouth Biscuits

lil suburban homestead copy cat version of red lobsters cheddar bay biscuit

My son absolutely loves Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits so I decided to make a healthier version of these at home over the Memorial Day weekend.  I did use a store-bought reduced fat biscuit mix  but you could make your own it would just raise the fat content slightly in the recipe.  I chose this option not just for convenience but because I was really trying to reduce the overall fat content in the biscuit.

If you have never had these before they are quite addicting but they are rich so I made some modifications to some of the copy cat recipes I saw around the web and added lower fat milk and cheese as well but you still smother them in butter at the end 😉

These are a super easy recipe and a drop biscuit recipe to boot and all in all much more frugal than going out to eat anyway.

What You Need:

  • cookie sheet
  • pastry brush
  • mixing bowl
  • spatula


  • 2 1/2 C. Reduced Fat Biscuit Mix
  • 1 C. shredded Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 6 TBSP. butter (4 go in mix) Reserve 2 TBSP. of butter to melt later…
  • 3/4 C. low-fat milk
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. parsley
  • The butter and cheese provided plenty of salt so I omitted it and they were absolutely yummy!  But if you are a salt fan add some.
  • Instructions:
  • Place the reduced fat biscuit mix or your homemade biscuit mix in the mixing bowl, add the milk, 4 tbsp. butter, and the cheese and mix up into a dough.
  • Go ahead and plop sticky balls of dough on the cookie sheet and bake.
  • While the biscuits are baking melt the remaining butter and stir in the garlic powder and parsley (best results use dried parsley)
  • As soon as the biscuits come out of the oven brush them with the butter/herb/spice mixture and serve fresh and hot!

To say these were fabulous is an understatement they were amazing!  Enjoy!

  1. Well I couldn’t try this last night because we spent about 3 1/2 hours with no electricity. Big disadvantage owning an all electric home down in the woods. I will try to make them next week! It was interesting sitting on the couch knitting on my grandbaby’s blanket by the light of an oil lamp. Really makes it important to get prepared in ways other than stocking up on food. We were so thankful the bad storms actually missed us yesterday. We were in several watches and warnings all day.

    Have a good weekend.

    1. Wow Charlotte I am so glad you guys were safe! Those storms were so scary watching the news was just heart breaking and you are right when we have incidents that happen like this it does make us think about how we could have been more prepared hopefully you will get a chance to make these biscuits again soon 🙂

I Love Hearing From All Of You! Thanks for sharing!
