Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Cheddar Bay Biscuits


You remember those yummy biscuits they serve at Red Lobster?  You know the ones that tasted so yummy you could make a meal out of just those, well I found a good gluten free recipe that tastes very close to the real deal.  Try them at home and let me know your thoughts.



2 cups Gluten Free Bisquick

5 tablespoons cold diced unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar jack cheese
3 eggs
2/3 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon Old bay seasoning
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley


Preheat oven to 400° F. First step is the wet ingredients for the biscuits. Mix eggs and heavy cream together, stirring until eggs are broken and everything is well blended. In a separate bowl add your 2 cups of Gluten Free Bisquick and add in cold butter using a pastry cutter or I used a large fork. Blend together until you have a coarse crumbly mixture and the butter is not visible. Add cheese into the dry mixture then add your wet ingredients until a soft dough forms.

Now make the seasoned butter which makes these taste so much like the Red Lobster version. In a new bowl blend melted butter, Old Bay seasoning, garlic powder and parsley, set aside to use later.

Drop the biscuits onto a cookie sheet and round the edges I used a regular spoon. Bake for about 12 minutes then take the biscuits out and brush on  a thick layer of the seasoned butter then bake for an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Biscuits should be a light golden brown color. This made about 22 biscuits. These are best served immediately but also delicious the next day.



The best thing on my plate for this breakfast was the gluten-free biscuits coated in butter and strawberry jam.  Oh, how I’ve missed homemade biscuits, but this recipe is flaky and delicious.


1 1/2 c white rice flour plus more for rolling

3/4 c tapioca starch

1 T baking powder

1 tsp fine sea salt

6 T cold unsalted butter cut into pieces

3/4 c skim milk

Preheat oven to 400F.  Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.  Whisk together flour, starch, baking powder and salt.  Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or two knives.  Make sure you leave some larger pieces of butter in the mixture.  Add the milk starting with a 1/2 c at a time mixing until the dough comes together.  Put some flour on your work surface and dump out the dough.  Knead a few times and then roll it out to 1/2 inch thickness.  Cut into biscuits using a biscuit cutter.  You can gently reform the dough to make additional biscuits.  Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned.  Serve warm.
