Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

"WANNABE" Cheddar Bay Biscuits

There are probably hundreds of recipes around for 'wannabe' Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits.  Why?  Because Red Lobster goers enjoy them and would like to make some at home.  I'm one who doesn't have to have 'all or nothing' when it comes to things like this.  In fact, if it's 'close', it's just fine with me, and... these are 'close enough' for me.

Depending on the size you make, you should get between 9-12 biscuits.

  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • **1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (Just for my hubby, I lower this to 1/4 teaspoon)
  • **1/4 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning (Here, too, I use only 1/8 teaspoon.)  I bought my 6 oz. can of Old Bay Seasoning  for $3.69-- this is used in/on seafood, poultry, salads and meats. It is a blend of celery salt (salt, celery seed), spices (including red pepper and black pepper), and paprika.  It can often be found in a store's fish/seafood section.  See my NOTE below.

  1. Heat oven to 450-degrees.
  2. Combine Bisquick, milk, and cheddar cheese.
  3. Stir together gently, and ONLY long enough to moisten the Bisquick.
  4. Spoon onto an ungreased (or parchment paper lined) baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes (mine are done in 8 minutes).
  6. In a small sauce pan combine butter, garlic powder and Old Bay Seasoning.  Heat until butter is melted.
  7. Brush the butter  mixture over hot biscuits.
  8. You can eat them 'as is', or you can return them to the 450-degrees oven for 3-5 minutes to 'crisp' them up a bit.  Watch carefully so they don't get 'dark'.

* Some bakers follow this recipe:
     2 1/2 cups Bisquick
     4 Tablespoons cold butter
     3/4 cup cold whole milk
     1 heaping cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
     1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt

     2 Tablespoons Butter, melted
     1 teaspoon fresh Parsley, finely chopped or 1/2 tsp dried Parsley
     1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt

 ** NOTE:  Rather than use the seasoning that is listed above, SOME bakers prefer to replace the Old Bay Seasoning by brushing on one of the following combinations of 'butter/seasoning'--
  • 2-4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2-4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
 OR, just

  • 2-4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
 This means,... use the kind of seasonings YOU and YOUR FAMILY like!
