A favorite recipe from a famous seafood restaurant chain.
From Denny: It's funny; I was just thinking about making some drop biscuits when the tasty ones from Red Lobster Restaurant came to mind. It's been years since I set foot in one of their stores but somehow the vision of fluffy hot biscuits remained uppermost in my mind, not dimmed by time. :) (This post is starting to sound like the beginnings of a food poem.)
What's also amusing is that as I was perusing the Amazon cookbook sections, looking for recipes within the book reviews, there it was: a book containing famous restaurant recipes. While Amazon didn't have the recipe, it sure didn't take but a few moments to run it down on the web.
Drop biscuits are an old Southern tradition. They are also so ridiculously easy to make because you don't have to roll them out. There are those cooks who have never mastered the light touch required for rolling out biscuits. Well, drop biscuits are the perfect answer to that dilemma. Drop biscuits are also a real crowd pleaser and can be made in no time, great when you are in a rush. The beauty of it is you still get a hot bread, all without too much effort.
Drop biscuits go well with breakfast eggs, soup at lunch, stew at night or for a snack with a little butter and jelly. If you prefer plain biscuits, just omit the garlic powder and Old Bay seasoning. For a different cheese taste, try Parmesan or Romano.
Cheddar Bay Biscuits
2 cups Bisquick
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
Heat oven to 450. Combine Bisquick, milk, and cheddar cheese. Stir together.
Spoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
In a small sauce pan combine butter, garlic powder and old bay seasoning. Heat until butter is melted. Spoon butter mixture over hot biscuits.
