How To Win Friends and Influence People

If you want people to like you better,  make these biscuits.


Cheese Garlic Biscuits (or Red Lobster Biscuits)

2 cups of buttermilk baking mix (I use Pioneer.)

1 cup of grated cheese

2/3 cup of milk

Mix it up. Yes, that’s all, mix it up.


Dough will be thick. Drop on lightly greased cookie sheet with a spoon.

Bake at 400 for about 8-10 minutes till peaks begin to brown.


As soon as you taken them out of the oven brush them liberally with a mixture of melted butter, garlic powder and salt.

But if you are like me and just can’t leave well enough alone, then mix up some herbed butter to brush on top or to serve on the side.

1 cup of margarine

1/4 cup of real butter (softened)

garlic powder


chili powder

2 drops of liquid smoke


parsley flakes

  1. The biscuits and butter look divine. The brown and white transferware, oh sister, I crave those dishes. That is the perfect fall pattern.

  2. We eat these until we are almost ill at our house. Not a pretty sight. I can only imagine how mixing in the sausage might go over, as Lisa suggests. A perfect cold weather biscuit!

  3. And now I can get my husband to d whatever I want him to.
    He’s addicted to the Red lobster biscuits.
    I may get my basement cleaned out after all.
    (Insert evil giggle.)

  4. I just made these today to go with the stew stewing in the crockpot since 7 am this morning…..I dollop mine into muffin tins and then head to confession (although I’m not catholic) after I have eaten far too many.

  5. Be still my carb-starved heart (er, tummy)! I can almost smell them… Can almost taste their buttery, garlicky goodness. Get thee behind me biscuits! 😉

  6. I’m not exactly sure how I stumbled across your blog but I LOVE it! I am hosting my very first Thanksgiving this year and have been surfing around for inspiration/ideas/comfort…!!! I’ll definitely be back to read more.

    Warm regards, Michaele

  7. To quote MeMaw: “So good they’ll make yore tongue reach up and slap yore brains out!”

    I use Pioneer baking mix too, and I drop mine into lightly buttered muffin tins. I took a batch to a family that just had a baby, and I swear they came thisclose to renaming that baby after me.

  8. Yum! I’m at work so I can’t make any right now. Might have to head to Red Lobster for lunch. But I’ll definitely be making some for the family this week! Unfortunately this means I won’t be fitting into that new bathing suit when I go to the Bahamas in two weeks. 😐

  9. LOL Dixmis… that was funny!

    AM, I love you for giving out this valuable info! These are the best biscuits ever!!! My guys would love these with bits of sausage as others have suggested. Besides if you put bits of sausage in them that could be a meal! haha Well for me not my guys.

  10. Oh thank you. Love the Red Lobster buscuits but for some reason never sought out the recipe and here it is – fell straight in my lap (ok my laptop) 🙂 Can’t wait to try these. My mouth is already watering.

  11. Fortunately, I have a cookbook with the equivalent of your oh-so-nonchalent buttermilk baking mix. Sigh.
    Also, liquid smoke? Dream on.

  12. I made them, but from scratch, instead of making my own baking mix. It was simpler. So I guess I didn’t exactly follow your recipe, but you inspired me nonetheless 🙂 And my daughter said they were SO GOOD that if I gave her one every day she would be my slave for life. I pointed out she already was (that’s what daughter means, I told her) but she’s not convinced. So thanks!
