Can you believe for the longest time I didn’t like Red Lobster’s Cheddar Bay Biscuits?
Yep! I really didn’t. I didn’t see what the big deal was. I mean, they were alright, but they weren’t anything great, at least at first.
Years later, I had them again and I loved them! I don’t know what changed for me. Well, they say your taste buds change. Anywho, I have tried many times to duplicate a similar or better version of them and I think I did it. At least, I got pretty darn close.
I love the flavor of cheddar and chives when they are combined together. You can see that in recipes like these Loaded Potato Bites, Loaded Baked Potato Cheese Ball, and Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes. These Buttermilk Cheddar and Chive Biscuits are no different. They are flaky and will go with any meal.
How to make these Buttermilk Cheddar and Chive Biscuits
These biscuits are very simple to make. You pretty much put all ingredients in a bowl, mix, roll out, and bake. The rule of thumb when it comes to making biscuits is to make sure all ingredients are cold. When the biscuits are baking in a hot oven, the milk and butter releases steam and makes those delicious layers that we all love so much when it comes to homemade biscuits.
The cheddar makes these biscuits all the more moist and decadent. You won’t believe how delicious these biscuits are.
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 stick unsalted cold butter
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup chives
- 1 tsp. parsley
- dash garlic powder
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees
- In a large bowl, add all of your dry ingredients together.
- Cut in the cold butter, add the cheese, chives, garlic powder, and parsley. With your hands merge all the ingredients until the mixture begins to look like coarse sand. Make sure that you don’t leave any big chunks of the butter not blended well into the flour mixture.
- With your mixture still in the bowl, make a hole in the middle of the mixture, and slowly pour in your buttermilk. With your hand, start to add in the dry mixture to the buttermilk. Keep blending with your hand until all the buttermilk is absorbed and you have a sticky ball of dough. TIP: Before you start using your hand to mix the dough, you can dust your hands with flour to avoid the dough from sticking to your hands too much.
- You can roll your dough out on a floured surface and cut your biscuits with a biscuit cutter. Or, you can do what I did, which was to take pieces of the dough and roll them into balls and place them in a greased round cake pan closely together. You can use a cookie sheet if you would like.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes. When they come out of the oven grease or brush with butter and serve. You can also sprinkle with a little extra cheese if you want.
