Cheddar Bay Biscuits that Red Lobster serves are phenomenal. It’s pretty much the main reason we eat there. haha. This copycat version is very close to the real thing, and in my opinion, better! I ♥ copycat recipes!
These biscuits are quick to make and so worth the little effort. Did that make sense? Anywho, they are soft, buttery, cheesy rolls with a hint of garlic. So good. Whenever we eat at Red Lobster, and they bring out the biscuit-filled basket, I have to restrain myself from eating all of them. They are utterly addicting!
This version is totally from scratch, and absolutely delicious!
