Cheddar Bay Biscuits

For my husband's birthday this year all he wanted was to go to Red Lobster for the "all you can eat shrimp." I can't say that would have been my first choice for MY birthday but it wasn't MY birthday so I graciously took my husband to dinner. He proceeded to eat his body weight in shrimp while I ate my body weight in the cheesy biscuits. What can I say? If I were stranded on a deserted island I would most definitely want to survive off of bread. And cookies. And more bread. And cookies. And bread. 

Well, you get the idea.....

Needless to say I loved those cheesy biscuits and I thought that my Mardi Gras party would be the perfect time to recreate them to go with a bowl of steaming jambalaya. So I made them and they were a hit! These go great with soup or anytime you would serve something with a roll or biscuit.

The garlic butter and herbs on top of these biscuits really make them melt in your mouth. I strongly recommend you eat them hot or still warm. They lose some of their magic once they are room temperature or stored. 

Cheddar Bay Biscuits
slightly adapted from gimme some oven

2 cups biscuit mix (such as Bisquick)
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2/3 cup milk
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 tsp. dried oregano or Italian herbs
1/4 tsp. garlic salt


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray or a silpat.

In a large bowl, mix together biscuit mix, cheese and garlic powder. Add in milk, and stir until well mixed. (Heads up – the dough will get sticky!)

Using a medium sized cookie scoop or your hands, shape the dough into biscuit-sized clumps, and drop onto the baking sheet. (Note that the finished biscuit will look just like how you drop them on the sheet, so try to make them pretty!)

Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until biscuits begin to brown slightly around the edges.

While the biscuits bake, prepare the warm butter mixture by mixing together the melted butter, oregano and garlic salt in a small bowl. As soon as the biscuits are removed from the oven, brush the biscuits (while they are still on the baking sheet) with the mixture until they are well-coated.

Serve warm.
