Soul Food Saturday #4

Good Morning! I hope you had a great week and your weekend is off to a good start. And to all the moms out there, a very Happy Mother's Day tomorrow. I hope your day is as special as each and every one of you are! Being a mommy is the biggest pleasure of my life, and I'm so lucky to have this little boy to love and take care of. 

Bekki is back with something that would be perfect for Mother's Day brunch, lunch or dinner! A great copycat recipe that most of us will all recognize! 

There is something really fun about the idea of making food into a holiday. I have realized there are many more reasons to celebrate and I am quite alright with that. I know many of us have decided to eat healthier and make better choices. But keeping our favorites for those celebrations is a treat we all need! Taking our food holiday one step further today is “Eat anything you want day”! With that said who doesn't love those amazing cheddar bay biscuits they serve at every Red Lobster? Bottomless baskets of cheesy garlic, piping hot, little balls of oh my goodness! We need a moment of silence for these little guys, because wow, YES friends they are just that good!

I came across this recipe after talking with a staff member at the restaurant and dying to learn the secret. I tell you what the recipe I found was good. But I wanted GREAT! So after some tweaking here and there, this is what our family felt was certainly in the running for those days you just couldn't make it out to get piping hot biscuits from their source.  

Copycat Cheddar Bay Biscuits Adapted from Top Secret Recipes
2 ½ c. baking mix
4 tbs. cold butter
1 ½ c. grated cheddar cheese
¾ c. cold whole milk
¼ tsp. granulated garlic
Garlic butter for tops:
2 tbs. butter, melted
½ tsp. granulated garlic
¼ tsp. parsley salt
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Combine baking mix with cold butter in a medium bowl with a pastry cutter or large fork. There should be small chunks of butter in there that are that are about the size of peas. Add cheddar cheese, milk, and granulated garlic. Mix by hand until combined, but don’t over mix.
3. Measure approximately ¼ c. portions of dough using an ice cream scoop, or measuring cup. Then form into a ball by squeezing gently until dough is the shape you desire. Place onto an un-greased cookie sheet leaving an inch between each dough ball. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the tops of biscuits are light brown.
4. When you take the biscuits out of the oven, melt 2 tbs. butter in a small bowl in the microwave. Stir in ½ tsp. granulated garlic and parsley salt. Mix to combine seasonings and butter. Top each biscuit with the garlic butter.
Makes a dozen biscuits
Serve with your favorite meal.  Whether its breakfast, lunch or dinner these will be gone quick and they will all be asking for more. Let’s celebrate “Eat whatever you want day” and eat these with whatever YOU want! Blessings and happy eating!

I love these biscuits! Mine are a little different but I think that cheesy, buttery goodness all turn out the same.
