[Recipe] Cheese-garlic biscuits

Ingredients and Equipment
Stand Mixer (hand mixer also works – don’t forget a mixing bowl)
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cold, chopped unsalted butter
1 cup milk
1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2-3 ounces grated cheddar cheese
1 1/8 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
Baking sheet

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In the mixing bowl, add the flour, salt, baking powder, and garlic powder.
  3. Chop the butter in to small pieces and add to bowl.
  4. While mixing on low, stream in milk.
  5. Turn up to medium until a dough forms.
  6. Tear off pieces and lightly gather to an even shape.
  7. Depending on size, bake for 10-15 minutes. Check doneness with toothpick. For reference, my biscuits took about 15 minutes. I made them kinda big.
  8. As soon as they are cool enough to touch, place them on a cooling rack or plate to cool.

These delicious biscuits are my copycat attempt at Red Lobster’s cheese biscuits. They are egg-less which worked out really well. They turned out light and fluffy. They were fantastic by themselves, a bit of butter, or strawberry jam. Oooooor you can make sausage gravy. The cheese and garlic paired so well with the sausage gravy I let out an audible “ohhhhhh mmmmmmmmm.”

If you make this, let me know! You can find me on Instagram and Twitter.
