Reviews forMakeover Cheddar Biscuits
"I worked for Red Lobster and you do not need to re invent the wheel!The following is their ACTUAL recipe! I was in shock when I saw the industrial size box of Bisquick and the Kraft shredded cheddar:Bisquick drop biscuits follow the recipe on the box, add a fourth of the amount of Bisquick you used in Kraft shredded sharp cheddar cheese.Example 1 cup Bisquick 1/4 cup cheese. 4 cups Bisquick 1 cup cheese etc.bake according to box directions then brush with garlic butter that has a little parsley flakes added to it as soon as they are out of the oven."
"I don't know if I did something wrong, or what, but thought I followed the directions exactly. I made this for Thanksgiving dinner with friends and relatives (my daughter-in-law loves the Red Lobster biscuits), and they were like hockey pucks! Very hard and dry, and they didn't taste at all like the light and fluffy Red Lobster biscuits. I wished I had bought the mix instead. Maybe they would have turned out better. Anyway, no one liked them and I ended up throwing all of them away. I won't bother making again."
"Much, much more "authentic" than the copycat biscuits made with a boxed baking mix. I added Italian seasoning to the parsley. Very good!"
"Wow, these were fantastic! Unfortunately, that means no leftovers!The changes I made: I didn't have cake flour, so I used 2 cups minus 2 tablespoons of plain flour; my buttermilk was 2% milk with a tablespoon of vinegar in it. And I grated the 3 tablespoons of butter into the flour mixture.Yum!"
"I made these for several family get togethers, everyone loved them."
"These biscuits were not only easy to make but also delicious. I added Old Bay seasoning to my butter mixture as well as in the biscuit batter."
"Love these...the only things that I did differently were to use 2 Tablespoon cornstarch and add in enough flour to make 1 cups worth (in place of 1 cup cake flour) and I did double the amount of butter topping that you brush on at the end (I ran out!). Otherwise great!"
"I made a mini-mini version of these morsels as an appetizer and they almost evaporated from the tray - guests devoured them. I used a melon scoop for the size, and that was perfect."
"I just made these, and they are amazing! super simple and delicious!"
