Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits

Pin It Yummy, cheesy goodness!
We grilled some wonderful Mahi fillets the other night and I thought that biscuits would be great.  Of course, seafood and biscuits led me to the ones they make at Red Lobster.  Most of the copy cat recipes I found used Bisquick…something I don’t really like at all.
I received this great book at my bridal shower called The Big Book of Breakfast by Maryana Vollstedt.  Check it out if you’re into breakfast any time of day like we are! 
The book contains many quick bread recipes including one for Bacon Cheese Drop Biscuits.  I left out the bacon (watching my figure…ha ha!) and added some garlic powder. 
Shoot!!!  Everything is better with bacon, right?  Maybe next time.
They turned out to be a great match to Red Lobster biscuits and are a great accompaniment to fish.
Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 5 Tablespoons shortening, cut into small chunks
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated 

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, salt and garlic powder.  Add shortening and cut it into the dry ingredients until it resembles coarse crumbs.  Add buttermilk and mix until dough holds together.  Fold in cheese. 
Drop heaping tablespoons of dough for each biscuit onto an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 450 degrees until golden brown, about 10-12 minutes.   Serve immediately.

Watch carefully...a few of my biscuits were a little darker than I would have liked so keep an eye on them!
Hope you enjoy my version of a chain classic!

  4. They look tasty :) I always wondered what the American "biscuit" was when reading it in books, and from the ingredients they kinda sound like "scones" to me. So that's two things I've learnt today about cultural translations (that and we call"crisp" "crumble").
