From Quick Cooking (now called Simple & Delicious). These biscuits taste like the ones I love at Red Lobster. Shredded cheddar cheese adds nice color, and a tasty butter mixture brushed on top of these drop biscuits provides a burst of garlic flavor.

Delish! These little guys are the perfect accompaniment to soup or stew. We had them with a chili-like soup. (Has rice instead of beans) I was a little nervous about 3 tsp garlic powder, but you didn't need to be! Don't leave outthe chicken boullion granules...they add a depth than is essential in making these so flavorful. Fluffy on the inside, a little crunchy on the outside. I'm under strict orders to have the fixin's for these on hand at all times! lol I've tried making these with the dry mixes, but found them to be quite bland. The buttermilk makes a light, fluffy biscuit. Enjoy!
OH MY GOODNESS! These biscuits were absolutely fabulous. They DO taste very similar to "Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits". The melted butter & garlic brushed over the top of each biscuit made for wonderful flavor and presentation. This is definitely a recipe worth keeping. In fact, it's going straight into my recipe box for safe keeping. Thanks very much!
