Easy Cheddar Bay Biscuits

I have discovered what could be the best garlic cheddar biscuit out there.

Not only that, it’s also the easiest garlic cheddar biscuit to make. It only takes a handful of ingredients and need ZERO baking skills to accomplish.

Behold, the greatest copycat Red Lobster biscuit around. Got a hankering you can’t quell? Make these biscuits. Out of bread to go with your soup? Make these biscuits.

Honestly, I happened upon this recipe by accident. I made a big ol’ pot of beans this weekend and had every intention of making some cornbread, but I was plum out of sugar. I can’t make cornbread without sugar! I need a little sweetness in my cornbread.

I scoured all of my cookbooks and the web for ANY recipe to make cornbread without sugar (or with a sugar substitute) and couldn’t find any. Sure, there are sugarless cornbread recipes out there, but I could only find them with buttermilk as an ingredient. I didn’t have sugar, what makes someone think I have BUTTERMILK?!

I finally decided to make biscuits, but again, NO BUTTERMILK. That’s when I stumbled upon this simple Bisquick biscuit.

After trying it out, I was floored. It tastes SO GOOD. It’s much softer, more delicate, and fluffier than the Red Lobster biscuits—and I honestly think that it’s BETTER.

But, you be the judge.
