I don’t know what it is about Red Lobster Biscuits…

Some people proudly visit “the lobster” week after week to get their seafood and Cheddar Bay Biscuit fix. Others call and order ahead, then slide in the side door with oversized sun glasses, to nab their biscuits and leave inconspicuously.

Either way, you know you love them. We all love them.

Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits Recipe. Easy to make, soft and cheesy biscuits just like at Red Lobster. (Actually we think they’re better!)


  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/2 cup cold salted butter, cut into cubes + 1/4 cup melted
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 450° F. Pour the dry ingredients in 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.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a 3 tablespoon scoop to place even portions of biscuit batter onto the baking sheets, two inches apart. Bake for approximately 10 minutes until golden.

    Made these last night for the topping of a chicken and biscuits casserole. I’ve tried other Cheddar Bay biscuit recipes before, and this was by far the tastiest. I’ll probably cut the Old Bay back a little next time, as they were a touch salty for my taste. I live at 7000 feet, so baked goods can be a challenge, but these did beautifully. Will definitely make these the next time we have crab legs!

    Any idea what you could replace Old Bay Seasoning with? I live in Africa and would love to make these biscuits but we can’t get it here

    • Sommerposted June 3, 2015 at 1:53 pm Reply

      Hi Caroline, Old Bay Seasoning mix includes mustard, paprika, celery salt, bay leaf, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, mace, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, cardamom, and ginger. I’d probably simplify a mix of paprika, ground mustard, and celery salt.
