A big part of getting used to the culture and everyday life of the USA is very much linked to new food experiences. The latest taste test / food review is for Cheddar Bay Biscuits from Red Lobster which are like savoury cheese scones that have a hint of garlic butter. They are seriously tasty.
These types of biscuits originate from a seafood chain of restaurants called Red Lobster. I have never been (I am allergic to fish and seafood, so probably will never go), but my flatmate was always saying how good these biscuits are, so I was very curious to try them.
The term ‘biscuit’ within the title confused me to start with as I assumed it was a cookie-like creation (biscuit to us Brits), but it is more like a scone. It is most commonly eaten as an appetiser or a side to a meal.
My flatmate made them with a pancake mix, milk, butter, garlic powder, cheddar cheese and parsley. If you are interested in a recipe for them, click the following link WikiHow: How To Make Red Lobster’s® Cheddar Bay Biscuits
The Taste Test
The biscuits have a soft, crumbly scone/cake-like texture and a good flavouring of cheese and garlic, which goes so well together. It is most similar to a cheese scone from back in the UK, and is just as comforting. It is very filling, and goes really well with soups or as a sort of topping to a stew (I am thinking like the British ‘dumpling’).
These were really delicious, and had a good strong cheese and garlic flavour combination. These may well become a staple food item from now on – really tasty!
