Easy Garlic Cheddar Biscuits




Golden cheddar biscuits drizzled with garlic parsley butter. Make sure you have some company to enjoy these with, or you'll be tempted to eat them all!

You can easily halve this recipe. Of course, they taste best fresh out of the oven, but reheating them the next day is still good if you have leftovers.

    2. I'm allergic to fresh garlic, would you recommend I substitute garlic powder or minced garlic? Thanks!

      1. Do you mean fresh as in uncooked? Then you could probably roast the garlic in the oven before mixing.
        Also, minced garlic IS fresh garlic, just chopped up.
        Garlic powder- I do not think it would give as strong and "garlic-y" a flavor.

    3. These look just like the biscuits from Red Lobster that are SO yummy and SO bad for you. Thank you for making a healthy and equally yummy substitution! I can't wait to try them!

      1. Did you end up finding it in Canada?

      2. I did not find Heart Smart Bisquick, however I did find Betty Crocker Bisquick at our local Sobeys. I looked around for Heart Smart but couldn't find it anywhere.

      3. I am not able to find the Heart Smart Bisquick in Nova Scotia either. I can find the Bisquick. Too bad I used it often when I was living in Texas....

    5. That is so funny - I just made these with the same ingredients tonight for dinner...minus the parsley! Seriously...that is too funny! I was craving biscuits and decided to use some fat free cheddar cheese and garlic to spice it up a bit! :)

    7. They look and sound so good I think I'll pass on the company and just eat them all myself :)

    8. Gosh im gonna have to stop reading all your yuuummmy recipes lol. Jk, but yet, another must make

    9. Thank you so much for finding a way to lighten up these delights! My family LOVES the full fat version but I've refused to make them since starting weight watchers because of how bad they are. Everyone will be happy to see these back on the menu this week thanks to you! :)

      ReplyDelete
    10. Silly question: I don't drink milk since it is too high on points (why drink your points when you can eat your points!?!?). But we do keep whole milk in the fridge for the kids. Can I substitute the fat free milk with whole milk and not mess up the consistancy?

      By the way, I have loved EVERY single recipe of yours that I have tried! Thanks for doing what you do! :)

      ReplyDelete
    11. I have been making these for years now, just without the parsley. I'll have to try it the next time I make them. They are always a big hit!

      ReplyDelete
    12. OMG! How did you know I was searching for these the other day on your site! This is great. Thank you Gina!!!

      ReplyDelete
    13. @Cyber Cyster- I make these at home, almost the exact same recipe, except I use garlic powder, so you should be fine!

      ReplyDelete
    14. I don't think Heart Smart Bisquick is available in Canada (if anyone has seen it, please let me know). Gina, can you recommend a substitute?

      ReplyDelete
    15. Does anyone have tips for freezing these? I am pregnant and trying to freeze some of my recipes for after the baby arrives, but I'm not sure if I should freeze the dough in one big lump, or split the dough into individual servings then freeze, or go ahead and bake them and freeze the completed biscuits. Suggestions?

      1. Marianne, You can freeze the baked biscuits. Let cool and put in zip lock. It's best if you can draw most of the air out of the bag to avoid freezer burn.

        Delete
    16. They look so good ... I wonder if there's a way to make them from scratch.

      ReplyDelete
    17. They sell Heart Smart Bisquick on amazon, so you could always buy it there (I linked to it in my ingredients). If not, I'm sure you could find a copycat recipe for it online.

      Garlic powder would be fine if you're allergic, but I would recommend fresh to everyone else.

      Morris Family- Using whole milk would work, but the points would increase, so maybe you want to do half milk, half water.

      Marianne, I think I would bake them first, then freeze and reheat in the oven later. We freeze French bread all the time, and it reheats perfectly.

      ReplyDelete
    18. yum..I would guess these taste like a healthy version of the red lobster biscuits! thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    19. WOW! These look fantastic! I am amazed you made something so evil sounding so healthy! Thanks, Gina, can not wait to try them!

      ReplyDelete
    20. Ooooh! I'm definitely going to be giving these a try! :-) I could eat the ones from Red Lobster as a meal, so I'll definitely have to halve this recipe or I'll be in trouble! :-P

      ReplyDelete
    21. I'd love to see a from scratch option.

      Also, Marianne, I would divide them up and freeze on a cookie sheet before baking. When froozen put them in a sealed bag. Then you can bake them a few at a time, they will just take a few minutes longer.

      ReplyDelete
    22. I bet these would be absolutely wonderful on the side of a warm, hearty soup or chili. Such an easy recipe! Thanks for sharing, Gina.

      ReplyDelete
    23. These look so yummy!!!

      ReplyDelete
    24. I've been planning on making your cauliflower soup before winter is over, and i think these would go great with that! Yum!

    25. THANK YOU! I have been craving cheddar bay biscuits from Red Lobster for weeks. I was going to make them at home but the recipe I have is BAAAAAADDD. Making these tonight!

    26. I can't wait to make this with the baked potato soup! Thanks so much for all your hard work and all of the super duper recipes that you share with us :)

    28. This would be great with soup, I'm thinking cheddar broccoli potato soup!

    29. I'll play around with making this from scratch for those of you who can't find Bisquick.

      ReplyDelete
    34. I too LOVE these at Red Lobster and am so happy you posted this recipe. I just made them and they not only taiste delicious they look great as well. I made them with the potato soup and it was a GREAT, AMAZING, YUMMY dinner.

      ReplyDelete
    35. I was wondering if these would be good using taco cheese? That is all I have on hand and wanted to try them tonight. Or would these be OK without the cheese?

      ReplyDelete
    36. I have tons of Bisquick I've been wanting to use up..this will be perfect! :-)

      ReplyDelete
    37. I made these but with cilantro and mexican blend cheese to go with chili. they were so good!

      ReplyDelete
    38. What's the difference between the Heart Smart and the regular Bisquick?

      By the way, just wanted you to know that at my last WW meeting, we talked about ways to manage your environment and keep your kitchen healthy. During discussion, I stood up and gave everyone your website and raved about the recipes here!!

      Keep up the awesomeness. My husband and I thank you!!

    39. ummm....yummm! Making these tonight to go with Gina's 3 Bean Turkey Chili that I have in the crock pot right now! The house smells awesome! Perfect timing...thanks, Gina!

      I am making them again Saturday. AND they were so easy!!! Thanks

    41. I made these tonight, and these were delicious. I didn't have the cheese so I just left it out. I made them as a side with your Filipino Adobo Chicken, which is my fam's favorite!!! Thanks for the great meals.

      ReplyDelete
    42. I'm sure Mexican cheese is wonderful here, and with cilantro instead of parsley, yum! Would be awesome with a bowl of chili!!

      Jo- Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

      Heather- Sooo easy! I like easy when it comes to baking.

      Filipino Chicken is a favorite in my house too these days.

    43. These sound delish. But we can't get Heart smart bisquick in the UK, any suggestions for an alternative?

    44. I made these last night to go along with some chili. They were so easy to make, and SO delicious. My boyfriend didn't even know they were WW friendly! Kudos, Gina!

    45. You did it again Gina! I just made these tonight for dinner. My family gave them rave reviews. My husband loved them so much he ate 4 (12+ points). I served them along side your Baked Potato Soup.
      The entire meal was awesome, and perfect on this cold California night.
      You make being on Weight Watchers a treat. I've told all the people at my meetings about your website.

    51. Shut the front door! These were too good! OMG! So I halved the recipe - I ate one, the boyfriend ate 6. He literally pulled the plate to him and went to town. Had the nerve to ask "did you want some?" as if I hadn't made them. Thanks for a wonderful substitute for a Red Lobster favorite.

    52. Hi! I have really been enjoying your blog, so I added you to my list of "foodie blog shoutouts" on my own blog! I have a great group of dedicated readers that really enjoy the recipes I post, but I can't possibly link all of the ones you have that make my mouth water. If you have a page of other blogs you enjoy, I'd love to be on it (if you enjoy my blog as well). Thanks again for the wonderful recipes!

    55. i'm back with an update! i made them!! sooo good and easy, which is important because i can mess things up really fast. totally should have 1/2d the recipe because now i have a whole bunch of delicious biscuits all to myself.... mm.

      ReplyDelete
    56. I warned you all!! Glad you liked them, I knew you would.

    57. I made these tonight for a dinner party and they were a huge hit. I took out the parsley and added parmesan cheese and oregano. They were great! I think this would be a great pizza dough!

      ReplyDelete
    58. These were so good! Thank you, Gina! (Mine didn't look as pretty as your's did though!) :)

    59. I couldn't find Heart Smart Bisquick in my local store there was another brand 'Krusteaz' that had a heart smart option I am hoping that it will have the same yummy effect. Thanks!

    61. Gina,

      I love your recipes. I made 1/2 the recipe for these awesome biscuits, and I ate 2 of them. My husband ate the rest! Wow! They were great.

      Keep up the great work! You've helped me continue to maintain my WW goal weight. :)

      ReplyDelete
    62. I made these last night and added crumbled up reduced fat turkey bacon to the mixture. It added so much to the flavor--the smokyness of the bacon mixed with the tang of the cheddar--and consistency--the crunchy bacon breaking up the fluffyness. It was delicious!

      ReplyDelete
    63. These are absolutely amazing, and I don't feel guilty eating them! Thank you Gina, your blog is a life-saver!

      ReplyDelete
    64. These are just the best, thanks so much for the recipe! I've made them twice now and my family can't get enough. They are so quick and easy and they present really well.

    67. Ok just found out about this site. Gonna be trying many recipes. Anyway how many muffins could I eat without overdoing the points? I figure 2.

      ReplyDelete
    68. Just made these last night...AMAZING!!! I had never tried the HeartSmart bisquick before and was worried it would taste "healthy"...tasted like any other biscuit! The garlic and cheddar made it so delicious! Will definately be making this over and over again.

      ReplyDelete
    69. I made these tonight and screwed something up! They were as flat as pancakes, can't sure what I did, I figure it's one of 3 things, I halved the recipe and added too much milk, since they were very watery, I over mixed despite your warnings, or I was lazy so I used minced garlic and the oil did it! They were still VERY yummy!!!

      ReplyDelete
    70. These are AMAZING! I used Cabot 75% reduced fat cheddar and they were delicious. Definitely recommend making a half recipe if you don't have help eating these or have a hard time with self control. It took a LOT for me to limit myself to two. This is a wonderful recipe for entertaining those who aren't calorie counting - they will never know and you can maintain your count! Thank you for another superb recipe, Gina!

      ReplyDelete
    71. These are the best! I recommend everyone I know to your site, dieting or not... Because of these biscuits. Divine! Love love love! Seriously though I make a larger biscuit so there's 7... And it makes it easier for me to only have one large one, then hubs and kids devoured the rest... Great for brunch or dinner!! Best biscuits... Great just great

      ReplyDelete
    72. Aren't they great!! Great idea making them bigger to eat just one.

      ReplyDelete
    73. Just wondering how the nutritional info would change if we were to use the Gluten Free Bisquick?

      Or if you think that would affect the recipe much?

      I live in Canada but make regular trips to the US, I dont want to have boxes of mix sitting there since I dont bake or eat pancakes but these look magically delicious and a must try!

    76. These were delicious! I was on a cheese kick, so for dinner tonight I made these w/ the lighter baked mac & cheese for my hubby and I. The garlic parsley butter is a nice treat to the already delicious biscuit. Having easily devoured tons of the cheddar bay biscuits at Red Lobster, this is a fantastic and healthy substitute.

      On a side note, the mac & cheese was creamy, decadent and hearty. We make so many recipes of yours in our house and they're all awesome!

      ReplyDelete
    77. Sounds like a very comforting meal!!

      ReplyDelete
    78. These are delicious! I made them last week and am making them again tonight since my husband came home from work and saw some broccoli cheddar mini omelettes in the fridge, got really excited and yelled, "you made more cheddar bicuits!!!" I guess that was my cue :-)

      ReplyDelete
    79. These biscuits are amazing! My 23-year-old brother likes nothing, and has made cooking healthy for the family difficult. But he LOVED these biscuits, as did everyone else in the family, and I'm already planning to make them again tomorrow! Also, I LOVE the simplicity of this recipe. Took no time at all to make/clean up!

    80. These are the exact same thing that a B&B in Canada made, but the cow running the place refused to give me the recipe! Needless to say I never went back to that place again! Thanks for posting!!!

    81. How bad would the calories be if I use regular Bisquick? I think that is all we can get in the UK.

    82. Craig I'm not sure how that effects the points, you'll have to plug this into recipe builder.

    84. Tonight was my 1st time trying this recipe, and it was a huge success!!! I didnt think my 4 kids (all under 7 yrs old) would like them, boy was I wrong they were asking or 2nd and 3rd biscuits!!!Thank You for the recipes.

      ReplyDelete
    85. I finally got around to making these last weekend and again tonight...just amazing. They don't taste light in any way. You are incredible, Gina! (Oh, we don't have 50% reduced fat cheese here in my area, so I had to use 2% milk sharp cheddar.)

      And HUGE thumbs up from the hubs, too! (He's not on WW at all. :-)

      these are the BEST biscuits I have EVER had!!!

      I highly recommend them, they are salty but not too much salt, they have the perfect amount of garlic in them as well.

      (I recommend puttting some chopped parsely into the actual biscuit and also make more of the butter sauce, you will want more on them :)

      Thanks Gina, GREAT recipe!!!!

    90. These are great!!! Love them!

    93. A friend pointed me in the direction of your website - I love it!

      Just thought I'd pass this along . . . I've been making these biscuits substituting water for half the milk. (A Red Lobster employee told me that they use water for their biscuits). I have not made them with the heart smart bisquick - but using regular - and substituting water - made for lighter, "fluffier" cheddar biscuits!

      Again. . . love your website!

      ReplyDelete
    94. All I can say is Make them. They are delicious. I wanted Papa Gino bread sticks today and thought I remembered saving this cheese biscuit recipe. Well, I finally got around to making it this month and as I type, I 'm eating them. so darn good. No need for papa gino bread sticks any more.

    95. I went to get the ingredients for these last night. Can't wait to make them. BUT I forgot to buy the stupid biscuit mix :-( So back to the store i go.

    96. I've now made these twice... so easy & delicious. I made 11 instead of 14 (4 pts each) and used water instead of milk (only because I was out) and they still turned out amazing.

      Gina, I cannot thank you enough for this website. It's my new go-to and I've told all my friends about it too!

    100. These are great! I make them at least twice a month, and my husband is always super excited to find them in the oven. He loves to take the leftover ones to work with his lunch, which saves me from the temptation of having a bunch in the fridge!

      ReplyDelete
    101. Made these tonight and I didn't love them as much as I thought I would. They looked beautiful, just like the photos, but tasted a bit mild. I used regular extra sharp cheddar as my light cheese got eaten by the kids (as usual), so I would have thought they would have had a little "bite" to them. Any suggestions? I'm worried the Heart Smart is too sweet rather than having that salty/baking powder taste. I shredded the cheese using the larger shredding holes, should I have gone smaller to distribute more?

      I was also lazy and used the already minced garlic. The biscuits were kinda flat like pancakes. Learned my lesson, don't be lazy!

    103. I made these last night...so yummy!! I used fresh rosemary instead of parsley because that's what I had on hand. Had one for breakfast this morning with turkey bacon~my new favorite breakfast! Thanks for the recipe, Gina!

    106. I want to take this to a friend's house for Christmas dinner. How do I reheat them? Oven temp? Covered in foil? Center of oven? How long? I'm a good cook but not a GREAT one so I want to make sure these are as tasty the next day as the day I prepare them. SO excited about making these!!!!

      ReplyDelete
    107. I apologize if this question has been asked and answered...
      Can I make the dough the night before, keep it refrigerated and then bake the next day?
      I'd like to make this Wednesday night and then bring them to my mom's on Thanksgiving and bake them there so they're fresh out of the oven.
      Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    108. I think these are best fresh, you could probably reheat them in the oven a few minutes but like any bread they are best the first day.

      I have not tried making the batter the night before, if it works let me know!

    114. I made these to take to a Christmas party. Everyone gobbled them up and no one even knew they were WW friendly! I used my trusty cookie scoop to make them all the same size.

      I was looking for a low fat version of garlic bread and found these biscuits. Could I make them without the cheese and just make garlic biscuits (we're having it with your crockpot bolgnese sauce and I don't know how much a cheesy biscuit would work)? Would I need to adjust anything else?

      Thanks!

    119. Gina-I made these last week, my husband told me that they were WAY BETTER than the "cheddar bay" biscuits from Red Lobster (which he LOVES!!) And reheated the next day, omg they taste even better. However, I felt like the butter/parsley mix had way more parsley, to where I literally had to use my finger to spread it around the biscuit. Any other suggsetions?

    120. Gina, is there a gluten free version of these biscuits?!

    121. I made these last night. I thought that they were pretty bland and would not put that much parsley w/the butter, next time. This morning since, I had left over pepper jack cheese I decided to make them w/the pepper jack cheese. OMG! I think I died and went to heaven. I only put half the amount of parsley that it called for w/the butter and no garlic in the butter. Only garlic in the batter. LOVED IT! Thanks for another awesome recipe!

    122. Hello,
      I just found your site through Pinterest and I am so glad I have! I was wondering if you ever had any luck making these from scratch? I am trying really hard to keep our food costs down and use less processed foods. These look delicious and I would love to try them. Thank you so much for all the great recipes!

    123. My boyfriend and I are garlic-aholics so I doubled the garlic in this recipe and they were absolutely delicious. Can't wait to make them again!

    124. These are so awesome! I freeze them on a cookie sheet, and then store them in a ziploc in my freezer. So easy to just warm up one or two at a time.

    125. I just made these and added turkey sausage crumbles so they would be breakfast biscuits.

    126. My first time making biscuits. They're really good, but I wish I skipped the step of lining the baking sheet.

      I didn't have parchment paper, so I used foil because I read that it's a good replacement. The biscuits stuck to the foil. I had to scrape them off and it was a mess. I realized that I probably could have skipped the lining and used cooking spray, since I have a non-stick baking sheet.

      Other than that, the biscuits turned out really good. My taste testing turned into a meal, and looking forward to the leftovers. And lesson learned: biscuits stick to foil, so next time I'll skip the lining.

    127. For those looking for a "from scratch" Bisquick replacement, I used these directions I found:


      "Substitute the 2 cups Bisquick mix with:

      2 cups unbleached white flour plus 4 teaspoons baking powder and 2 teaspoons baking soda (Bisquick mix includes additional preservatives and chemicals not needed by your body)

      2/3 cup milk
      2 tbsp butter"

      I'm assuming you could use whole wheat flour if you wanted to, but I'm not an experienced baker, so I could be wrong!

      Gina, thank you so much for all the incredible recipes! My husband and I are trying to eat healthier, and everything on here is delicious, even to a super-picky man!

    128. I made these tonight with stuff I had on hand.... used 2 tsp dried parsley, regular bisquick, and I used almost a cup of parmesan cheese instead of cheddar. They turned out super yummy! Thank you so much for the recipe!

    129. Since I made the easy garlic and rosemary biscuit and made the mistake of adding the butter mixture to the mix and it turned out marvelous I did the same with this batch so wonderfully delicious...

    130. Made these last night with your meatball and spaghetti soup and OMG, the whole dinner was delicious.. It was hard not to eat all of the biscuits!! Thanks so much for your recipes. Love this site!

    131. Can margarine or extra virgin olive oil be substituted for butter?

      ReplyDelete
    132. I made these this weekend and they were very tasty but for some reason mine were quite dry. Next time I think I'll add a little more milk

      ReplyDelete
    133. Hi Gina, Any suggestions for an alternative to Heart Smart Bisquick ? I'm in Australia and I'm pretty sure we don't have that product here?

      Can I substitute with self raising flour and will it alter the points content?

      Help appreciated as I'm going to make the pot pie soup this weekend!! Yum!

    134. Do these need to be refrigerated or can I leave them out?

    136. OMG I just made these with the chicken pot pie soup and all I have to say is DELISH! I didn't have fresh or dried parsley on hand so just made them without. Super easy and super yummy!

      ReplyDelete
    137. Did you ever make any headway with a recipe from scratch for these?

      ReplyDelete
    138. do you use salted butter? thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    139. Ditto to anonymous on 10/15 - I would like to know how to make this without a mix. I can probably figure it out - some white whole wheat flour and some baking soda/salt/powder- but asking because I am here, and I am lazy :)

    140. I just made these and they are so yummy & delicious....I used Smart Balance Buttery Spread Light with Flaxseed Oil & Kraft Fat Free Shredded Cheese & I used the minced garlic in the jar...I put the recipe & all the ingredients into Weight Watchers Recipe Builder online...it gives you
      WW 2 Points Plus per biscuit. I ate 2 of the biscuits with a salad that had fat free red wine vinegar and lemon & pepper...oh, it was so good!

    141. These are perfect and so easy to make! Perfectly paired with your Chicken Pot Pie Soup! Thank you!!!

    142. These are seriously dangerous. My kids (2&4) ate 2 a piece, and I was tempted to eat more than one. I paired with your Baked Potato Soup which was also a huge hit!

    144. These were so easy and will be perfect with Beef and Barley soup!!

    145. I did an online search at my local Giant Eagle for the Cabot 50% reduced fat cheese but they only have the 75% light kind- I've noticed the 50% in a lot of recipes so I was hoping to stock up, does anyone know if the 75% would make that much of a difference in most dishes?

    146. Big hit with the family. VERY easy to make, thanks!

    147. These were great!! I used Low fat buttermilk because it's all I had in the fridge and it gave these biscuits a nice little tang. Thanks Gina!

    148. Oh I am so loving you for this recipe. I love the biscuits at red lobster, and could eat my weight in them. I only get them about twice a year when out of town. So now, I can make them at home, and not hate myself later.....

    149. I am also loving you for this recipe! I've been wanting something bready but for the gluten, it has to really be worth it for me! I can't use GF Bisquick because it has soy, which I'm allergic to! So, when I saw the reviews for these, I thought I'd have to try it!. I am also lactose intolerant, so I used unsweetened almond milk and I can't believe it's not butter, since that's all I had. I also was out of parsley, so I used a pinch of rubbed sage! My calorie count was about 74 cals! They will be gone by the end of the day, I promise. Kids and hubby all love it! Thank you for making something worth risking gluten for, I think!

    150. I made these again tonight. Last time my son thought the garlic was too strong so tonight I threw the garlic butter into the batter and then brushed a bit of plain butter on instead. He loved them. They were delicious. I adjusted for the bit of extra butter in my points but I could have cut it in half and used half with the garlic in and the other half outside.

    151. I made these with the unsweetened Almond milk, since I haven't used regular milk in years, and a fat free cheddar cheese...2WW points!!

    152. Gina-

      I know this is an old post but I'm a new reader! Would you recommend adding some Cream of Tater to these to give them a bit of a tangy? Kind of like Red Lobster bisuits?

      ReplyDelete
    153. Thank you so much for this recipe. I've made this 3 times already and it's always so satisfying. This version is much lighter than the Red Lobster ones and it doesn't skimp on taste and flavor. I don't have a family so I usually opt to half the ingredients and it makes about 6 biscuits. I also don't have the reduced fat version of the sharp cheddar but luckily the points worked out to be the same.

    154. Gina,

      Thank you so much for your delicious recipes! I've cooked several of them over the last few months. Today I did a cooking marathon of your soups: chicken pot pie, crockpot turkey white bean pumpkin chili, stuffed pepper and turkey chili taco. Also made these biscuits. Your recipes combine good flavor, healthy ingredients and ease of preparation. As many other people have commented, I don't feel like I'm missing anything. Thank you!

    155. I tried posting this earlier and I'm not sure if it worked so sorry if this is a double post. I couldn't find shredded Cabot cheese. I picked up a white block of Cabot cheese that says sharp light Vermont cheddar, calories 70 and fat 4.5g for a 1 ounce serving. Is is the correct item? I am counting points and want to make sure I am accurate. Thank you.

    156. Seriously the only legit problem with these biscuits is that I cant stop eating them!
