Copycat Recipe: Red Lobster Cheddar Garlic Biscuits

by Carrie with Children with 15 comments

My mom shared this recipe for Cheddar Garlic Biscuits with me years ago and it quickly became one of my favorite recipes.  These biscuits taste very similar to Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay biscuits – tons of garlic and cheddar!  I especially like this recipe because it only calls for five ingredients, ones that I typically have at home!
