How to Make Our Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits Recipe
The secret to making our super easy savory snack is to use a food processor to prepare the dough.
Simply pulse all of the biscuit ingredients together (minus the melted butter and parsley for topping), then scoop the dough onto baking sheets that are lined with parchment paper.
An ice cream scoop lightly coated with nonstick spray works well for creating perfect little mounds.
Legendary Cheddar Bay Biscuits
Preheat the oven to 450° F. Pour the dry ingredients into a food processor, then add the cold butter and pulse until the butter is chopped into small pieces. Then pour in the milk and pulse to combine. Finally, add the shredded cheddar and pulse to combine until the final dough forms.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a 3 tablespoon scoop to place even portions of biscuit batter onto the prepared baking sheet, two inches apart. Bake for approximately 10 minutes until golden brown.
Meanwhile, whisk the melted butter and parsley together in a bowl for the biscuit tops. After the Cheddar Bay Biscuits come out of the oven, lightly brush the tops with melted parsley butter. Serve warm.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I Make this Cheddar Biscuits Recipe Gluten-Free?
I have not attempted to use any alternatives to all-purpose flour for this recipe, but you can certainly give it a try.
You will need to use an all-purpose 1-to-1 ratio gluten-free flour mix with xanthan gum to get the best fluffy texture and rise. Let me know in the comments if you try this substitute!
Do I Have to Use Old Bay Seasoning?
While Old Bay is not essential for the baking process, I do highly recommend using it to get that crave-worthy copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit flavor.
If Old Bay isn’t available, you can substitute it with a blend of paprika, ground mustard, and celery salt.
How Long Do Cheddar Bay Biscuits Keep Well?
You can store these biscuits at room temperature in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
You can warm them up in the microwave with a wet paper towel for a few seconds for a warm biscuit and melted sharp cheddar cheese on your own table.
To freeze, individually wrap each biscuit and then store together in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 1 month.
No Buttermilk or Eggs For This Recipe?
In most southern biscuit recipes, you do stir in some buttermilk, but this biscuit mix does not need the buttermilk to help it rise. The same goes for the eggs.
