Cheesy Garlic Biscuits

cheese garlic biscuitIs it just me or it is hard to get back to posting after a very long weekend? Well, Thanksgiving was good. Our friends, Shirley and Kevin came to celebrate it with us. We did not have any turkey this year but that does not mean we did not have lots of food. We had hot roast beef sandwiches, Cheesy Garlic Biscuits, sushi, potato salad, coleslaw, yeemee noodles and even a few vodka shots. ;)




I don't really fancy biscuits but Michael loves them especially the ones at Red Lobster. He could just eat those Cheesy Garlic Biscuits and nothing else and he is a happy camper. Very easy. So for Thanksgiving, I decided to make some. I found the recipe at Joyfulabode.com and decided to give it a try. I'm glad everybody liked them. It is easy to make and goes well with the hot roast beef sandwiches.

*** Burst21 is a game made by my husband during his spare time. Please do extend your support to the game. Thank you all!

****Chef's note: I made these again last night but using Jiffy's Baking Mix. The result is almost the same. So if you can't find Biscuit Mix, you can always use baking mix or maybe even pancake mix. Good luck!

1 pack buttermilk biscuit mix (I used Bisquick, about 1 1/2cups)
1 1/2cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp oregano (you can omit or use less)
3/4 tsp garlic salt


1. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray cooking sheet with non-stick spray.

2. Put biscuit mix, cheese and milk in a bowl and mix well to form a sticky dough.

3. Using spoon, drop lumps of dough onto cookie sheets 1.5in apart. Bake for 10min.

4. In a bowl, melt butter and mix with oregano and garlic salt.

5. When the timer goes off, take them out and brush with butter mixture and bake 5min at 400F and another 5-6min at 350F.

6. Transfer into a plate and serves immediately.

Talk about posting after a weekend!!! I have not posted for ten days, now that feels like an eternity. However, I am really busy this time of year.

I wonder whether I can get biscuit mix here ..

Michael must have loved them and would request it all the time from now on!

Dayang said...

Maya said...

I love biscuits from red lobster. I usually load up the biscuits and then am too full to eat rest of the meal. I know what you mean about getting back to blogging after holidays...try after 6 weeks of being away. I am still in la la land. By the way, you dah dapat the package ke?

ICook4Fun said...

I too love the biscuit at Red Lobster. Never attempt to make it myself. This recipe look pretty simple. I might try this if Carlos want some. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Salt N Turmeric said...

Nazarina, thank god you have a home studio to do your stuff. Since its cold now, im sure these Cheesy Garlic Biscuits come in handy. :)

Envy, these cheesy garlic biscuits are really light. Im sure your dh and kids would love them.

Mas, thank you. Apa lagi, buat ajelah. hehe.

Jun, that's a good question. I didnt know about these american version of biscuits myself until I moved here. Do let me knwo if you find them ya?

Dayang, boleh. Bila kitak sampei? ;)

Maya, thats exactly what Michael would do when we go to red lobster! lol. p.s, i emailed you.

Gert, that's so funny. Id do the same i.e. asking him if he's gonna eat it before i make anything. lol.

duodishes said...

Great photography. These biscuits are addictive!

Sri said...

This looks so delicious! Thanks for sharing! My hubby is a biscuit lover. Can't help it. He's a southern boy. :D

Kitchen Flavours said...

Salt N Turmeric said...

Duodishes, thank you!

Sri, Im sure he knows how to make these?

Lubna, these are good to have when the weather is cold. :)

Olga, welcome and thank you. My first time making them and thank god they turned out well. :)

My taste Heaven, welcome and thank you.

Tigerfish, it is always good to eat with friends isnt it? ;)

Wiffy, they are not cookies eventhough its called biscuits. American biscuits, not our biscuits. hehe.

HomeKreation said...

I never had this but I imagine I will like it.

Kevin said...

Those look so good!

gaga said...

Oh my, that looks heavenly! I recently made some cheesy biscuits too, but yours look much better.

Bren said...

i love menus that include all kinds of different things! sushi and garlic biscuits! great stuff right there!

Salt N Turmeric said...

Roz, if you like cheese, you'l like this. :)

Kevin, thank you!

Gaga, thank you. Did you post it on your blog too?

Bren, when you have people with different taste, you've gotta have different kind of food. lol.

foodphotoblog.com said...

My Grandmother made awesome cheesy biscuits ,these look fantastic. Nice photography

chumpman said...

I'm a big fan of cheese and garlic. I don't mind to gain weight, can you send some over PLEASE ? So hungry now

Annie said...

I made these the other night and they are fantastic!

IsItMyTurnYet said...

Just made these and the came out pretty good. The only thing I would change is less Oregano. I LOVE Oregano, but this was too much. I would 1/2 the amount. I also had to double the butter to have enough for all the biscuits.

oatsandbeansandbabygrow.com said...

Just made these, and they were decadent...so much cheese! I thought maybe too much, but my husband said no way. I posted about them on my blog oatsandbeansandbabygrow.com. I used parsley instead of oregano...the oregano just didn't seem right to me. I also used salted butter and garlic powder instead of salt. Yummy! Better than Red Lobster (esp since I hate Red Lobster besides the biscuits!)

Sandi said...

Making these tonight! Cant wait! Wish there was a printable recipe:)

Salt N Turmeric said...

Sandi, thank you for visiting my blog. Enjoy your dinner tonight! Sorry about no printable version tho. :)

internette said...

I also use parsley in mine as well. These go with every kind of soup and salads. I love em even as a late night snack with a drizzle of honey.

ethelmaepotter! said...

Thank you so much! I'll be making these for a baby shower next month!

Salt N Turmeric said...

Thank you for visiting Salt n Turmeric, Internette and Ethelmaepotter! Enjoy your cheesy garlic biscuits. :)

Kayla said...

Love the recipe! I made them earlier and they were amazing!

Salt N Turmeric said...

Kayla, welcome and I'm glad you like them. :)

MikesDork said...

I am going to make these tonight! Hope they come out yummy!!!

Mama Boz said...

i wonder, was the 1 TABLEspoon of *oregano a typo? to me that seemed like a lot. was it meant to be 1 TEAspoon? next time i will cut down on *oregano (*i didn't have so used italian seasoning)

Salt N Turmeric said...

MamaBoz, yes I did use 1TABLEspoon oregano for my cheesy garlic biscuits because I like oregano. You (and everybody else) can, of course use less or replace it with something else. It doesn't affect the baking process so use whatever you like and however much you like. :)

Natsta said...

These were absolutely perfect, even better than Red Lobster because the cheese browned just slightly on the bottom... perfect doneness and flavor! Way to break this one down.

Ninlea said...

The bottom burns, anyway to avoid this?

Salt N Turmeric said...

Ninlea, sorry that you're having that problem. I have made these numerous times and never had burn bottom problem. Maybe next time you can reduce the temperature and/or shortened the baking time? Hope that helps!

Writer Mags said...

Sorry, but these were nothing like Red Lobster's. WAY too much cheese and the garlic salt in the butter just crystallized on the biscuit, giving me a mouthful of salty flavor. Very disappointed...looking elsewhere for a better recipe.

Salt N Turmeric said...

Writer Mags, sorry you didn't like the result of your biscuits. Maybe you can reduce the amount of ingredients that you find too much when you make them next time? I usually personalised the recipes that I find to suit my own personal taste. Good luck and if you find another recipe that you like, maybe you can share them with me too.

Dave and Whitney said...

OH, Oregano!! I added dried parsley to my attempts. Which is also nice, and would make a good addition to the flavour profile while helping a little bit with the garlic aftereffects. Thanks for posting, lo so many years ago!

Salt N Turmeric said...

Glad you get to enjoy them Dave and Whitney. :)

Not Supermom said...

I just made these, and I'm trying hard not to burn my mouth while eating them straight out of the oven.

Used parsley instead of oregano (as that's what I've got fresh out in the garden)... but my heavens, does it matter? I think not. These are SO delish.

Gonna try 'em with mozzarella and basil, because I can.

Salt N Turmeric said...

Not Supermom (funny!lol), nope it does not matter as long as you like it. Mozzarella and basil sounds yumm too. I think that would make them dip-able! :)

LiveLoveNYC said...

yuM! these would be great muffins too! wow - i want one now :) thanks for the recipe!!

Adventures in Cooking said...

These came out really well, thank you! Everyone loved them! I would use less oregano next time. Perhaps 1/4-1/2 tsp. But very good and will make again!

Salt N Turmeric said...

Thank you LiveLove NYC and Adventures in Cooking.

The Lucky One said...

I made these last night and they were a huge hit! My boyfriend told me these were actually better than Red Lobster's because you can take the cheese and the garlic. I'll definitely be making these again!

Salt N Turmeric said...

Glad you liked it The Lucky One!

privatethoughts said...

Mine didn't turn out horrible, but had I left out the extra 5mins at 350, these would have been wonderful. They got a little crispy. Next time I'll just leave that part out. Great recipe!

Nichole Spencer said...

How mane buscuits does this recipe make?

Syifani Arifun said...

Hi, how to make this without the bisquick? It's not available here where I live :(

Salt N Turmeric said...

Nichole, as mentioned int he recipe, it makes 12 biscuits.

Syifani, you can substitute with pancake mix. :)

kym's kitchen said...

These are just "Baking POWDER biscuits" No Bisquick, just look up any simple Baking Powder biscuit recipe and sub. That's what I use anyway. Super easy, just All Purpose flour, baking powder, salt some shortening or butter (Butter flavored Crisco works much better than butter), salt and milk. I half and half the regular salt with garlic salt IN the biscuit sometimes. I also melt real butter, parsley flakes and garlic salt to baste the biscuits with. I brush the butter mixture over them before the oven , once during baking and last, after they come out. These are great for dinner, snack, breakfast with egg, cheese, bacon /ham sausage.

Dee Jones said...

Fanfrickintastic!!!! I used a biscuit recipe rather than bisquick... by far the best biscuits I have ever eaten in my life!! I love you for posting this recipe!

Bethany said...

Okay, so this is the "basic" recipe, but I've made these several times and I seriously know the most delicious version. The only thing you need to do different is to add some seasonings to the dough. Especially some Old Bay seasoning! Also add the Old bay to seasoning that goes on top. Trust me, it's sooooo much tastier!

Salt N Turmeric said...

TQ kym's kitchen for visiting.

Dee Jones, I love that you love it! :)

Bethany, thank you for your suggestion!

Kimberly Nguyen said...

Made these exactly as directed (left the dough sitting for 30 mins though, because I had chicken in the oven). They turned out delicious! Just like Red Lobster! I used to go just for the biscuits, but now that I can make it on my own, there's no reason to go ever again :)

Penelope said...

Followed recipe, but also added garlic to the dough..... Family loved them.!
