Who doesn't love the Cheddar Bay Biscuits from Red Lobster?
I love them, but I'm not a big fan of anything else that the restaurant serves. I don't do fish...it smells.
So when the hubs gets to go there I typically get a Caesar salad and lots of biscuits. I started thinking about how I could do them at home, and started searching for some recipes.
Thank you Rachel Ray for coming through in a pinch with a super simple recipe that I think is even BETTER than the ones at Red Lobster. Why you may ask? Because these ones have the added goodness of bacon. Mmmm.
Super easy. Start with a bag of Bisquick Complete Biscuit Mix.
After dumping that into a mixing bowl start cooking up 3-4 slices of bacon in a frying pan. Once done to your liking, remove and let cool. Pour a tablespoon or so of the pan drippings into the dry biscuit mix. Chop up the bacon and add it to the mix. Now grab the cheddar cheese and mix in about 1/2 cup of the finely shredded stuff. Add the needed 1/2 cup of water and mix to combine. Drop on the baking sheet and bake according to package directions (450*F for 8-11 minutes).
They're beautiful and delish and I can make them at home with anything other than fish. Score!
