Reviews for Garlic Cheese Biscuits
"Great biscuits! I did not have any chicken bouillon so used approx. 1Tblsp of Italian seasoning instead. Hubby said these were a make again!"
"We love having a special biscuit or bread to go with soup! These are perfect, and easy! I normally have all the ingredients on hand and can whip them up in a few minutes! I do like to use a little garlic salt in the melted butter for the top."
"These were good and similar to Red Lobster's. Normally, I would've just used Bisquick, milk, and cheese and made the biscuits, but I was out of Bisquick. So, I gave these a try. A little more work, but I personally liked these better than the Bisquick kind."
"These were OK but I like the ones made with biscuit better and they are easier to do as well."
"These were the best I have made, I only used 1tsp of garlic, and just butter at the end and they were great..."
