Season 2 Ep. 4 - Mike Flanagan's Mom's Garlic Cheese Biscuits

About the Recipe

I was a comically picky eater as a child. One night, I came home from a friend’s house raving about the popcorn shrimp I had at Red Lobster. My mother leapt at a rare opportunity to encourage eating anything but the hot dogs and pizza I’d subsisted on for years, and this began a weekly Friday night family dinner at Red Lobster tradition where I would load up on all the popcorn shrimp and Garlic Cheese Biscuits I could eat. My mother set out to find a recipe for the garlic cheese biscuits that she could make at home, and when she cracked it, it became a tradition at our family dinner table for years.



Garlic Powder

Parsley Flakes

Cheddar Cheese




Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Lightly grease cookie sheet with Crisco or cooking spray

Mix together:

  2 cups Bisquick

  1/4 tsp garlic powder

  1 Tbsp parsley flakes (dried is fine)

  1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Add: 3/4 cup milk and mix by hand (don’t over mix - everything should be moist, but not smooth like cake batter)

Drop by large spoonfuls onto cookie sheet.

Bake 7-9 minutes 

While they are baking melt 2-3 Tbsps butter over low heat.  When rolls are done ( or just before) brush rolls with melted butter.  Heat another minute, or until done.

Transfer to cooling rack.

Makes 9-10 rolls
