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.

  1. 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!

  3. goodness gracious those look delicious!

  4. These look awesome! Wish I had some to go with our dinner tonight!

  5. 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

    • 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.

  6. Any hints on oven temp?

  7. Well there is never a day I would pass up one of these biscuits!! Hands down scrumptious!

  8. Oh man do these look good. So light and fluffy. If these were in front of me I am pretty sure I couldn’t just eat one. 

  9. There is literally nothing on the this earth I want more than one of these right now. Not chocolate. Not french fried. Not pizza. Just THESE biscuits. 

  10. Yum, Ready to make these now…what temp should the oven be?

  11. Holy moly, these look incredible!

  12. Oh man these look WAYYYY better than RL’s! Love that they’re put together all in a food processor. Totally happening in my kitchen! 

  13. What I would do for a dozen of these biscuits right now!!!!

  14. jeez. these look delicious!

  15. My step mom is obsessed with those biscuits and buys the mix to make them at home from the grocery store. I’ll have to send this along to her,

  17. OMG!! These make me smile. As a kid, I loved going to Red Lobster and gobbling these up. So trying this recipe!

  18. These look too good!
