On a busy weeknight, these drop biscuits can come together in about 20 minutes or less, including baking time. It’s likely you’ll have most of the ingredients on-hand, especially if your family is a cheese-loving family. Just toss together three of the ingredients, drop them on a baking sheet, and bake.

How to Make Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits
Ingredients: (full recipe below)
- Bisquick (or you could use my DIY Homemade Bisquick Baking Mix!)
- Cheddar Cheese – you can use pre-shredded cheese, but shredding your own helps create a really cheesy biscuit
- milk – I like whole milk for this recipe for a really rich taste
- butter – real butter is best
- garlic powder, parsley – for brushing on the tops after the biscuits come out of the oven.
- Preheat your oven and line your baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. I love lining my baking sheets because washing them in the sink is such a pain! Tossing out parchment paper or washing a silicone mat is so much easier.
- Combine the biscuit mix, cheese, and milk in a medium bowl. Stir them until well combined, adjusting the amount of milk to create the desired biscuit consistency.
- Drop by teaspoon full onto your prepared baking sheet then bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
- During the last minute or two of baking for your biscuits, melt the butter in the microwave, and then add the spices. Once you pull the biscuits from the oven, brush the buttery mix over the warm biscuits and serve them immediately.
How to Store and Freeze Biscuits
Refrigerated leftover biscuits retain more moisture and are tastier when reheated in the microwave. But they can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container. If you want to freeze your biscuits, make sure they are completely cool, then place in a freezer-safe, airtight container, and use them within three months.
You can make and freeze the dough ahead of time for an even faster prep! Just combine the dough ingredients and flash freeze them in individual portions. Once the dough balls are solid, place them in a freezer-safe bag. When you’re ready to bake them, extend the baking time by about five minutes.
