Cheddar Bay Biscuits Post Guide
Ingredients Needed and Substitutes
This recipe is easy to make with bisquick, cheese, milk, and seasonings. These simple ingredients combine to make delicious cheddar biscuits that your family will love!
- Bisquick: We used Bisquick as a base for the dough to shorten our prep time.
- Whole Milk: Milk hydrates the dry ingredients and adds flavor. Try using buttermilk for a tangy twist!
- Cheese: The shredded cheddar cheese adds a sharp, cheesy flavor. Substitute with an equal amount of other types of cheese for different flavors.
- Butter: We used melted butter to add richness and moisture to these biscuits.
- Garlic Powder: Garlic powder infuses garlic flavor evenly throughout these biscuits.
- Parsley: We added parsley to give these biscuits a fresh, peppery taste.
- Salt: Using salt enhances the flavor of all the other ingredients.
- Old Bay Seasoning: Old bay seasoning adds a cajun kick to these cheddar biscuits.

While our family’s vote goes to the original recipe, here are a couple of delicious variations to try if you want to switch things up.
Breakfast Cheddar Bay Biscuits
Cut the biscuits in half, and add scrambled eggs, bacon, and cheese for a delicious breakfast sandwich.
Spicy Cheddar Bay Biscuits
To make a spicy version, add diced bell peppers, jalapenos, and onions to the dough. If you want even more spice, add hot sauce to the seasoned butter before brushing.
If you want to add meat to your biscuits, we suggest adding bacon bits, crumbled Italian sausage, or diced ham to the dough.
When storing, allow the biscuits to cool completely before transferring them to an airtight container, placing parchment paper between layers.

Frequently Asked Questions
No, it is best to bake the biscuits immediately after mixing the dough. Biscuits can also be prepped to a certain point to make mealtime easier. Simply measure out the ingredients but leave them separate until ready to mix. Be sure to store perishable ingredients in the fridge.
If you don’t have any old bay seasoning on hand, you can make a copycat version. It is a mixture of these ingredients: celery salt, ground bay leaves, smoked paprika, dry mustard, black pepper, ground allspice, cayenne, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, ground cardamom, and ground ginger.
These copycat Red Lobster biscuits are best eaten when freshly made. That being said, we would never let cheddar bay biscuits go to waste! There are several ways they can be reheated. Bake them in the oven for 5-7 minutes at 350˚F, wrap them in a damp paper towel and warm them for 20-30 seconds in the microwave, or slice the biscuits in half, spread butter on the insides, and place them facedown in a skillet over medium heat until warm and toasted.
