But unlike my regular biscuits, these garlic cheese drop-style biscuits require zero rolling, folding, or cutting, making them super quick and easy to make for a weeknight dinner.

Just mix, drop, bake, and enjoy!

Tips for Making Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits: 

  • Don’t overmix the biscuit dough! You want to stir your ingredients until just combined that way they’re soft, fluffy, and airy. (It should look like the picture above)
  • For the best wholesome flavor/texture, use either whole milk or buttermilk for these biscuits. If you don’t have buttermilk make your own using my guide in this post here
  • Just like in my regular self-rising flour biscuits, I 110% recommend freezing your butter 15 mins- 1 hour before hand and using a box grater to grate your butter. It’s the best little trick ever for getting even pieces of butter throughout your biscuit dough and super easy! You can also use a pastry cutter, if you don’t have a grater. 
  • Grab this awesome cookie dough scoop set for making these biscuits. It makes it super easy to just scoop and drop perfectly round biscuits.
  • For large biscuits like mine, use the largest cookie scoop, for medium biscuits use the medium, and for smaller biscuits use the small cookie scoop. *Note if you adjust the size of your biscuits you might need to lessen the baking time. 
  • After removing from the oven, immediately brush your biscuits with the melted garlic butter sauce using this pastry brush. The garlic butter will soak into your warm biscuits and it makes it SO good!

 

What Goes Great With Cheddar Garlic Biscuits? 

These Cheddar Garlic Biscuits go well with just about anything, but they’re especially yummy served with pasta, Italian food, seafood, and/or comfort food like pot roasts, soups, and stews.

They’re also super yummy at breakfast time paired with scrambled eggs and crispy bacon. 

I recommend making them with my Pepperoni Pizza Lasagna Roll-Ups, Oven Baked Lemon Pepper Chicken Thighs, or one of my 100 Best 30-Minute Dinners.

 

How to Store Leftover Cheddar Garlic Biscuits:

These Cheddar Garlic Biscuits are best enjoyed fresh, however you can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. 

To reheat, place on a baking sheet in a 325 degree oven for 8 minutes or place individual biscuits in the microwave and heat for 15-30 seconds at a time until warm.

How Do You Make Garlic Cheese Biscuits From Scratch?

These Cheddar Garlic Biscuits truly couldn’t be more simple to make! 

Before making your biscuits, I recommend pre-chilling your mixing bowl, grater, and butter in the freezer for at least 15 minutes. You will also need to place a 10-inch cast iron skillet in the oven as it preheats. 

Next, combine your self rising flour, garlic powder, and old bay seasoning in a bowl. Use a box grater and grate your frozen butter. You can also use a pastry cutter if you don’t have a box grater. 

Add your butter into your flour mixture and stir until combined. Next stir in your shredded cheddar cheese.

Lastly, pour in all but a little bit of your milk and stir until JUST combined. DO NOT OVERMIX. 

Your mixture should be just barely wet, so depending on how it looks you may or may not need the full 3/4 cup of milk. 

It should look in similar consistency to the photo below.

If for some reason your biscuit dough is really wet, you can always add a little bit of flour to get it to the right consistency.

Use a large cookie scoop and scoop out 6 large biscuits into your oiled cast iron skillet.

Sprinkle the top of each biscuit with more shredded cheddar cheese, if desired.
