With a large family, having bread with meals is a great “filler” that is delicious, but also helps fill folks up and stay on budget. A favorite in our house is a copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits recipe!
I love cheddar biscuits because you don’t have to worry about them rising, and they only take a few minutes to put together. You can also freeze the extras and reheat them when you’re ready, making dinner even easier!
Freezer Recipe: Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits
These biscuits use what is essentially homemade buttermilk. I almost never buy real buttermilk, because you can make something similar with regular milk and vinegar. You basically replace 2 tbsp. of the total milk needed with vinegar. You need 2 cups of milk for this recipe.
That means you need to measure out 1/4 cup vinegar (I used apple cider, but you can also use white vinegar). Then fill to the 2 cup mark with milk.
While it sits, you can mix the rest of the ingredients up and the milk and vinegar will do their work.
You’ll mix together the dry ingredients in a big bowl.
Then add the melted butter and the milk mixture and stir gently.
Then add in the shredded cheese.
The mixture will be thick!
I knew this would make about 20 large biscuits so I used two silicone mats on my largest baking sheet, but you can also use parchment paper.
I used a 1/4 cup scoop to put the blobs of biscuit dough on the baking sheet.
Then cook at 450 degrees for about 12-15 minutes until they start turn golden brown.
If you’re planning to eat them right away, then you’re going to brush a butter and garlic powder mixture on the top (if freezing, save this for the night you want to eat them).
How good do these look!? Crispy on the outside, moist and chewy on the inside, and full of butter and cheese.
If you’re freezing them, flash freeze them on a baking sheet once they’re cooled, then store in something freezer safe. When you want to eat them, let them thaw on the counter for a few hours and then wrap them in foil and warm them in a 200 degree oven for
When they’re warm, you can add the garlic and butter mixture on top. Then enjoy!
