Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits (Weight Watchers approved!!)
I really planned on posting these earlier in the week… I mean how can you keep something oh so good a secret? Except this thing called the Plague, or technically a flu or cold bug took my house over and bam, we were all sick. I didn’t even get out of bed on Tuesday. It was that bad.
Years ago my grandma gave me a recipe out of a magazine for Red Lobster Garlic Biscuits. She said that the magazine claimed they were the real thing and by golly, they’re pretty darn good whether they are the real thing or not. And that in my book is a good thing!
So here a couple weeks ago I was perusing the interwebs and found a recipe for Weight Watchers Approved Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits. Wait, what? Weight Watchers approved? That means they are better for you, right? That’s absolutely what that has to mean 😚.
You bet your bottom dollar I made sure I had everything to make them… and then I made them. Oh wow! I think my life is complete… like seriously! Complete! That’s all. Now that I’ve shared this bit of information with you, run to the store, get the ingredients, make them, claim they are bad, and eat them all for yourself. I didn’t run the points checker, but I found where one website with the exact same recipe claimed 1 point a piece. If that’s the case, just make room for 12 points in your daily point count and you’re set. You can thank me later. (although I’d definitely run the point checker first! Just saying).
2 cups reduced fat Bisquick
3/4 cup low fat buttermilk
1 cup low fat shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons diet margarine
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
1. Combine the baking mix, milk, and cheddar cheese in a medium bowl.
2. Mix with your hands until completely combined.
3. Form into balls about three tablespoons in size. There is enough for 12 biscuits.
4. Place them a few inches apart on parchment paper or a lightly sprayed baking sheet.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until lightly brown.
6. While they are in the oven, melt the margarine and mix with garlic powder.
7. Right when the biscuits come out of the oven brush them with melted margarine mixture and then sprinkle the crushed parsley on top. Serve hot.
