But I love the Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits! In fact, they are honestly the main reason why I have ever gone to Red Lobster. I am not the biggest seafood fan (however, our other seafood lovers in our house enjoy it there), so every time I have gone I order the chicken dish. Mock me if you will, but I definitely can’t get enough of those Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits.

- 1/2 tsp. garlic salt plus dashes
- 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
- 1.5 c. shredded cheddar cheese
- 2/3 c. milk
- 1/3 c. butter, melted
- Heat oven to 400 degrees
- In medium bowl combine all ingredients and mix until the dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl
- Hand knead the dough in the bowl approximately 12 times
- Make 12 equal balls of dough and place on a greased cookie sheet
- Sprinkle dashes of garlic salt on the top of the rolls
- Bake for 13-16 minutes in a 400 degree oven

Between the butter and garlic salt already in them, you can enjoy them without butter as they are already so flavorful. It saves a bit more money that way as well as whenever we serve a bread side, we seem to go through a lot of butter. But in this case, it is just the original 1/3 cup of butter!
