Roasted-Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

I love roasting garlic slowly in the oven.  The kitchen smells amazing; like garlic potpourri!  I'll usually roast a few heads at a time.  They're great to have on hand for recipes.

The skin will easily come away from the garlic clove.

My dogs get all excited when they smell the garlic roasting.  Sasha joined me to see what I was up to!

We were having white-bean stew for dinner so I decided to bake some biscuits to serve with our meal.

The roasted garlic added a great flavor to the biscuits, not an overpowering garlic flavor.

My husband and kids thought they were very good and similar in taste to the ones served at Red Lobster.

The biscuits were delicious, our breath- not so much!  After dinner, be sure to pop a piece of gum in your mouth!!

2 1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix 
3/4 cup cold buttermilk 
4 tablespoons cold butter plus 2 tablespoons 
1 head of roasted garlic, cloves carefully removed from their skins 
1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese
 1/2 tsp salt salt 
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes 

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Prepare baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper 2. Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter or a large fork  3. Add cheddar cheese, milk, garlic and salt 4. Mix dough by hand until combined; be careful not to over mix 5. Shape the dough into biscuit-sized clumps and drop onto the baking sheet 6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown 7. Remove biscuits from the oven and melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a microwave-safe bowl. 8. Use a brush to spread butter over the tops of the biscuits, then sprinkle tops with dried parsley flakes.  Enjoy while still warm! Makes one dozen biscuits

  1. ok, it's breakfast time and now I'm hungry for dinner. Those look great!

  2. I love garlic have you tried the new red lobster biscuits? So far only Wally world sells them but so good.

  3. Wow I just planned my week's dinner menu and included white chicken chili for it. These biscuits will be a great addition to it! Thank you for sharing.

  4. Thanks for sharing....I was recently at Paula Deans restaurant in GA, I bet these biscuits are similar!!

  5. YUM! Kinda reminds me of Red Lobster a bit!

  6. OMG you are killing me! This looks delicious!

  7. Oh heavens, Brandi! I get so excited when I find a recipe that I CAN do! No unidentifiable ingredients..that sort of thing. I ALWAYS have Bisquick in my cupboard.
    Not long ago I found on the back of the box a recipe for their Supreme I made them. I remember there was added baking powder and sugar but that's all I remember. Not even sure how much of each..
    I threw the box away and when I went to the store, anxious to replace it for the was no longer on the box and the entire box had changed. ??? Did you ever just happen to see that recipe? Perhaps I google it on line..never did that before but I'm going to try.
    Those were the most fantastic pancakes ever!!
    I'm so pleased to meet you! :)

  8. Brandi, I cannot imagine how wonderful these biscuits must taste. I planned to work a little longer in the studio, but I'm on my way upstairs to eat dinner. Your photos made my mouth water! smiles and joy! Take care.

  9. Our dogs like to be in the kitchen when I'm cooking too :-) They're just waiting for something to fall on the floor!

    Your biscuits look delicious - totally worth the garlic breath :-)

  10. These biscuits look amazing, Sasha totally has the right idea. I can smell their greatness in my mind!

  11. My goodness, they look delicious!!! Now..I want some!!!

  12. Dear Brandi,

    I love the Red Lobster biscuits.
    I think so many of us try to recreate that taste.
    These look very moist and delicious.
    I love roasted garlic too. It is one of the best things and garlic is so good for you too.
    Blessings dear. Catherine xo

    I thought the biscuits looked like the ones from Red Lobster! The puppy face inhaling the garlic is sweet.

  15. This looks and sounds amazing. I really want some right now!!
