Red Lobster: Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Ontario, Canada


I have a few biscuit recipes up my sleeve but this version from Red Lobster is one of my favorites over the more traditional, but really who doesn’t love a nice flaky biscuit of any kind? Cheddar Bay Biscuits are unbelievably easy to make in just 20 minutes with most ingredients you probably have on hand. So let’s get baking!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, optional
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

For The Topping

  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder



  • Preheat oven to 450 F
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat
  • Set aside
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper, if using
  • In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together buttermilk and butter
  • Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist
  • Gently fold in cheese
  • Using a 1/4-cup measuring cup, scoop the batter evenly onto the prepared baking sheet
  • Place into oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown
  • For the topping, whisk together butter, parsley and garlic powder in a small bowl
  • Working one at a time, brush the tops of the biscuits with the butter mixture


For dipping, biscuits are great for all your saucy recipes. Scalloped potatoes, soups, chowders, biscuits and gravy or try a great breakfast biscuit slider. Biscuits go with everything my friends.
