Cheddar Biscuits With Bisquick

I am not a huge Red Lobster fan, but I do love these copycat cheddar biscuits with bisquick. Soft and warm and cheesy with a hint of garlic. Delish!

  • 2 cups Bisquick mix It comes in a box
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter (OPTIONAL) Some say this makes the biscuits fluffier
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

To brush on baked biscuits

  • 1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley (or 1 tsp dried)


  • Preheat oven to 400F/204C.
  • MAKE DOUGH: In a medium bowl, mix Bisquick and garlic powder together with a fork. If using butter, add it and blend with your fingers or pastry blender until the butter is pea size. Add milk and cheese, then gently combine with a fork to form a soft dough. Do not over mix. Handle dough as little as possible.
  • BAKE: Spoon 8 lumps of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet (I line the pan with parchment paper). Bake 15 minutes until lightly browned. Remove biscuits from the oven.
  • MAKE BUTTER TOPPING: In a small measuring cup or microwavable bowl, add butter, garlic powder and parsley. Microwave on high for 30 seconds or until melted.
  • FINISH: Brush biscuits with melted butter mixture immediately. Transfer to plate and serve warm.


Make Ahead: Here are 3 options to make them ahead
  1. Make the dough ahead (but not more than 1-2 hours ahead). Then bake and brush them with butter before serving.
  2. Have all the ingredients ready separately and combine them as close to the time of baking and serving as possible.
  3. Bake the biscuits for 10 minutes, brush them with the butter mixture and finish baking them for the last 5 minutes before serving.
