Homemade Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits

I like Red Lobster, not for the seafood, because quite frankly I hate seafood and fish, but for the biscuits. I love Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuits, they are beyond delicious.

Homemade Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

This homemade version is the best one I have tried. To make it even better it does not call for any prepackaged baking mix and is super easy to make.

If you are a fan of Red Lobster's biscuits then this recipe is for you.
