The Best Copycat Red Lobster Biscuit Recipe

This Red Lobster customer favorite is surprisingly easy to make right at home.

You'd think Red Lobster would be popularly known for serving some delicious lobster, because well, it's all in the title. But to be quite honest, we all know that the real prize from this restaurant chain is a basket of Cheddar Bay Biscuits. While they typically are known as a side (or even a garnish on their Bloody Marys), these Red Lobster biscuits should be the center of attention. Which is why we decided to make our own version of this customer favorite dish.

So if you're in the mood for some Cheddar Bay Biscuits, or you simply need a savory side to go with dinner, this Red Lobster biscuit recipe will satisfy your craving.
