Cheddar Biscuits

Jay (my husband) is not a seafood lover, in fact he won't go near seafood with a ten foot pole.  However, one day we ended up at a Red Lobster (I think we might have had a gift card) and he discovered the glouriousness of Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits.  Their biscuits really are a wonderful thing.  They are not, however, a wonderful thing for your waistline. 

I found this recipe that I think comes pretty darn close to the Red Lobster biscuits without all the fat and calories.  In fact these biscuits have about half the fat and calories of the ones at Red Lobster. 

Cheddar Biscuits

source: Gina's Skinny Recipes


2 tablespoons of butter - melted

2 cloves of garlic - minced

2 tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley

2 cups of Heart Smart Bisquick

3.5 ounces of shredded cheedar cheese (I used Cabot 75% reduced fat)

2/3 cup skim milk

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Melt the butter in a small pan or pot, add 1 tablespoon of the garlic and cook on low heat about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and add the parsley.

In a large bowl, combine bisquick, cheese, and the rest of the garlic. Add the milk and mix  (be careful not to over mix). Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes. Brush biscuits with melted butter. Bake for 5 more minutes, or until lightly browned on the bottom.
