cheddar garlic biscuits

Maybe it's because I grew up in the southern U.S. but I just love biscuits. They go perfectly with chili, stews, chicken dishes, pot pies, macaroni and cheese; the list goes on. (Really, it does. Think "shrimp scene" in Forrest Gump.)

They're like the bacon of the bread world - they make everything taste better. And what's more, they're so easy to make. If you have a couple cups of Bisquick in the pantry, you can pretty much make a batch of biscuits in 15 minutes from start to finish.

Below is my recipe for cheddar garlic biscuits, like the kind served at Red Lobster. (Oh yeah - biscuits go great with seafood too!) You can adapt this recipe to include any herbs and/or cheeses you'd like, such as rosemary & parmesan biscuits or cheddar & chive biscuits. The possibilities are endless!

"Like I was sayin', shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. There's shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That -- that's about it."  ;)

Cheddar Garlic Biscuits
(makes 12)

2 cups Bisquick
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix the Bisquick, milk, cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and salt in a bowl until just combined. 

Spoon biscuits onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Brush each one with the melted butter and bake for 8-10 minutes. Add salt & pepper to taste and serve with... just about anything!
