I got this Bisquick recipe from the Betty Crocker site, but when I made it I changed it a little bit. First the original version, then I'll tell you what I did.
Prep Time: 5 min
Start to Finish: 15 min
Makes: 9 biscuits
2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1. Heat oven to 450ºF.
2. Stir Bisquick mix, milk and cheese until soft dough forms. Drop dough by 9 spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Stir together butter and garlic powder; brush over warm biscuits.
Now, that sounds really good and resembles the biscuits they serve at Red Lobster. When I made these to go with a big pot of soup the other night, my cheese grater was in the dishwasher waiting to be washed. Lazy me, I didn't want to take time to mess with that and didn't have pre-shredded cheese, so I grabbed the big container of parmesan cheese and used that instead!
Clever, huh? You know what? We loved the biscuits with the parmesan cheese! They turned out very light and fluffy, exceptionally so for drop biscuits, and tasted great with our homemade chicken/turkey noodle soup. I will be making that variation again, and very soon. Let me know if you try it.
