Questions & Replies

  1. How many cups is 1 and 1/4 lbs of Bisquick?


  1. I've made this recipe several times and I'm amazed how closely it tastes to the biscuits at Red Lobster. However I am always surprised why people tell you how much they like the recipe (five stars) and then tell you how they changed the recipe! Come on, it's no longer a copycat recipe at this point. This doesn't mean I might not try their suggestions in the future but if I review a recipe it will be based on the exact recipe.<br/><br/>Read more:
  2. Yummo! .. Used almost a cup of half n half cuz that's what I had. Used garlic salt instead of garlic pwdr in the butter and even dusted the biscuits lightly with the garlic salt before popping in the oven. I doubled the cheddar. I added parsley flakes to the garlic/butter and drenched the biscuits just out of the oven. These should be called "Disappearing" cheddar biscuits!!!!
  3. Delish! I added 1/4 cup of sour cream and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. Used fresh garlic instead of powder and sprinkled garlic salt over the top after I brushed with the butter mixture. I don't know why it just sounded like a good idea =P
  4. I made these tonight to go with my dinner but I found them quite blah. I think next time I will add some Old Bay seasoning in the biscuits, more cheese and some more seasoning in the butter mixture too. Thank you for sharing, I will make again, just spruce it up a bit for our taste.
  5. One word: Evil! Instead of Bisquick, Jiffy was used and it was amazing! 10 stars if I could. :)


  1. Excellent!!...have made 3 batches and replaced bisquick with this homemade recipe: 6c. flour...3tbs. baking powder...1tbs. salt...3/4c. shortening. Pulse in blender to texture of cornmeal. Keep in fridge or freezer and use as directed in any recipes calling for bisquick. I also add a tbs. of vinegar or lemon juice to the milk for buttermilk biscuits.
  2. I added less garlic powder and a little bit of Old Bay
  3. Chives
  4. I added a pinch to 1/4 tsp of Old Bay seasoning too this.
  5. I love these, but I always add chopped jalapenos!


I made this account back in 2001, when the site was called "Recipezaar". A lot has changed in my life since then. My kids are all grown and I try to eat a low-carb lifestyle now. Some of my older recipes were handed down from my grandmother. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I have. Current recipes that I post will mostly be low carb or keto.
