Bisquick Cheddar Biscuits

Sharing is caring!

This Bisquick Cheddar Biscuits recipe is my EASY version of Cheddar Bay Biscuits! Only 4 ingredients in this easy cheddar biscuit recipe (plus spices!)

While we've been staying safe at home, I've had a lot of time to experiment in the kitchen. One day, my husband said he wished we could have Cheddar Bay Biscuits! The result? The recipe for these Bisquick Cheddar Biscuits!
This easy cheddar biscuit recipe is based off of the famous Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits, but is made easy because it uses Bisquick mix!
"This was fabulous. Today is chilly here in Michigan, and I pulled out some of my spicy homemade chili and thought cheesy biscuits would be perfect. This recipe is outstanding ! Thanks for sharing !!!" Bridget, reader comment
Bisquick Cheddar Biscuits
I try not to be snarky when I'm writing, but the cheddar bay biscuits at Red Lobster are the best thing they have. I won't comment on the rest of their food, I'll just tell you how much I love the biscuits!
My husband and I used to go there during high school and college on "dates." We would eat our weight in biscuits. They are SO addictive!

To be fair, Red Lobster makes a mean Ceasar salad as well. But, besides the biscuits and salad, there isn't much that I love. So, it's a no brainer for me to make their biscuits at home and work them into our dinners.
Using Bisquick mix to make these easy cheddar biscuits cuts out several ingredients. If you've been following along here for a while, you know that I am a lazy baker! I always take shortcuts when it comes to baking.
Bisquick Cheddar Biscuits
To the Bisquick mix, you only have to add cheddar cheese, butter and milk to form the base of your biscuit. Then, you add garlic powder and parsley. The parsley is truly just for color, it does not add much flavor.
Bisquick does make a gluten free mix, and YES, it will work for this recipe! If you bake gluten free already, you know that there are some differences in texture. But, the flavor is still spot on!

I love adding chives to these biscuits if I have fresh green onions on hand. Finely mince a tablespoon or so, and add it to your batter! You can also add fresh minced garlic, if you have it.
I recommend serving these Bisquick Cheddar Biscuits with:

I like this recipe, but 2nd time I added 1 tsp minced garlic to dough. I increased garlic powder and parsley to 1/2 tsp and added parsley to melted butter. This made the recipe taste almost.identical to real thing. Oh and I increased cheese to 2/3 cup
