This past weekend, my hubby and I ordered in from one of my favorite Restaurants- Red Lobster. I have a few favorite dishes on their menu, in which I dream about from time to time. (I know, is it silly to dream about food? NEVER!! *WINK*). A few of my favorite dishes at Red Lobster is their Crab Linguine and their Coconut Shrimp with Coconut Dipping Sauce. Each of these entrees rank really high on my food list of Favorites. I also have another favorite which is not an entree-their Cheddar Bay Biscuits. These biscuits are truly out of this world! I swear we have our waiter or waitress bring us 3 platefuls when we eat there! Wow! What little piggies we are! I know we have NO SHAME when it comes to food! Good thing I try and work out everyday! :)
However, For those times that we can't make it to Red Lobster, I like to whip up a batch of Cheddar Bay Biscuits at home. This recipe came into my possession back in College when I was taking a Cooking class and has stayed in my cook book since. These biscuits are perfect to serve along side a soup or seafood dish. I like to serve mine when I make my super Yummy Sausage and Shrimp Gumbo or even a long side my Grilled Chicken Pasta with Creamy Tomato Sauce.
Try making some of these light and fluffy biscuits the next time you have a soup or pasta dish for dinner!
Cheddar Bay Biscuits
1 c. bisquick mix
1/4 c. cheddar cheese, shredded (sometimes I use a little more cheese)
1/3 c. milk
1 Tbsp. Italian Salad Dressing
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. dried parsley
2 Tbsp. Butter
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with Parchment paper. In a mixing bowl, combine baking mix, cheese, salad dressing and milk. Mix until dough is firm. Place dough on prepared pan using a small spoon or scoop.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until Golden Brown.
Combine melted butter, garlic powder and parsley in a small bowl. Brush over baked biscuits immediately after removing them from the oven. Serve Warm and Enjoy!
