These easy cheddar biscuits are exceptionally delicious, simple to make, and ready in less than 15 minutes. Plus your kitchen will smell wonderful. Now who wouldn’t want that?
Red Lobster was the first restaurant I ate at when I first arrived in Canada all those years ago so I’m weirdly sentimental about it. I rarely go now but I will never forget their cheddar biscuits which, ironically, is my favorite out of all the things in their menu.
The good news? I’ve learned to make them at home and not only do they taste great and are the easiest thing to make; they also fill our home with that wonderful freshly baked bread smell. Let’s get baking!
Easy cheddar biscuits part 1
When we saw that they started selling the box mix, we bought one immediately. You just add cheese and water and you can have a batch of really tasty biscuits in a matter of minutes. They tasted good and I think we paid less than $5 for a box so it’s a good deal too. We just weren’t comfortable with the amount of sodium in it.

So I set out to discover how to make them myself. There are lots of recipes out there so there’s no reason not to make these mouth-watering biscuits yourself. It’s just a matter of picking a recipe with the right combination of spices that you think will suit your palate and then go for it. Then there’s no turning back. You’ll want cheddar biscuits all the time.
And these biscuits are bursting with flavour. They’re great as a side (that chicken in the picture is Red’s interpretation of Pioneer Woman’s awesome buttermilk chicken), as a snack, even for breakfast (I slather some butter on them – drool).
That freshly baked bread smell
And that smell! I always say nothing beats the aroma of freshly baked bread filling your kitchen (and in our case, our tiny condo) and this particularly smells fantastic. The smell alone is addicting.
So go get to it. Bake some easy cheddar biscuits and relish its cheesy, mouth-watering goodness.
