Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. This might be my favorite food. They are probably 500 calories a piece, but they taste so amazing that they make me not care. The best copycat of a Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit that I’ve ever come across, this one is a permanent entry in my personal recipe book. No biscuick mix. No nonsense. All flavor. Garlicy, cheesy, buttery goodness.
A fabulous recipe I came across today is from A Farm Girl’s Dabbles. I spotted her photo over on foodgawker, and being the pasta fanatic that I am, I clicked right over. I was so excited when I was reading down the list and saw that I had every ingredient. Every.one. That so rarely happens. I saw it at 11:19 and it was done by noon! This soup was incredible. I’m not usually much of a sausage fan, but the Johnsonville Sweet Italian Sausage that I picked up last night courtesy of the Shespeaks.com Johnsonville Italian Sausage couponsthey sent me in the mail the other week worked perfectly in this.Check out their websites for the recipes, and make them tonight for dinner! I will be back to my regularly scheduled blogging soon. In fact, fellow food bloggers, I am going to be putting together a monthly virtual potluck. “Second Saturday Supper” will be kicking off in May. If you are interested in participating in this awesome blogger round-up, please let me know at OrWhateverYouDo at Gmail dot com.
Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits, also known as Cheddar Bay Biscuits
Cheesy cheddar garlic drop biscuits that rival any major seafood chain's biscuits! Made from scratch. Control the ingredients, control the flavor.
- 2.5 cups bread flour
- 1 TBSP baking powder
- 1.5 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

- 1/4 tsp salt
Put flour, baking powder, sugar, cream of tartar, salt, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder into a mixing bowl and stir until combined.
Add the softened butter and cut into flour mixture with a pastry blender, two forks, or your hands. Leave some lumps!
Add in sour cream, cheddar cheese, and milk. Stir until the dry ingredients are moistened. Don't overmix!
Melt 1 stick of butter and add 1 tsp garlic powder, parsley, and salt. Place spoonfuls of dough mixture onto a prepped baking sheet with sides. Spoon 1/2 of melted butter mixture over biscuits.
Bake at 450 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Pull them out when the biscuits are golden brown. Spoon the rest of the butter mixture over the baked biscuits.
