U.S. Food Review: Cheddar Bay Biscuits

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.

The Information

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’).

The Verdict

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!

Have you had or made Cheddar Bay Biscuits before? Do you think you might try them if you have never had them?

    Yum! I’ve never been a Red Lobster fan having grown up on the Gulf Coast with a tremendous amount of fresh seafood restaurants….but i LOVE those biscuits! I bet it is strange for you to call them a biscuit. I get mixed up talking about carts, trolleys and buggies!

      I bet the seafood in the Gulf Coast is good – even though I will never eat fish/seafood, I am sure there is nothing that can beat super fresh produce!

      I really loved the biscuits too, and did get a bit confused with the term biscuit, but I am slowly starting to remember things … although, like you, I still get caught out by the trolley/cart thing!

      Thanks for your comment!

    I’m from Canada (we have Red Lobster here) but I often visit the States and I find that the people down there are obsessed with these :p I hadn’t heard of them until one of my trips down there. I think they’re pretty good though it’s not something I would go out looking for in particular but those Americans really love their biscuits. They also talked a lot about biscuits in gravy which I have not tried. Have you tried grits yet? I find that it’s a pretty common staple in parts of the U.S. kinda like porridge but more bland and with a slightly different texture.

    Also, I didn’t realize you don’t have corndogs in the UK until my boyfriend (from England) and I went to the U.S. for a visit. I loooove them, but he wasn’t a fan. Have you tried one yet?


    • Molly @ The Move to America says:

      Everyone I spoke to about them seems to really, really like them – and I can see why, as they are delicious.

      I have indeed tried biscuits and gravy and corndogs and wrote about them for this series. I was not so keen on them both, but I did like the biscuit, which was very much like a scone to me.

      I have not tried grits yet, but that may go on my list of things to try!

      Thanks for your comment!

    My kids LOVE these biscuits at Red Lobster and are sad that we can’t get them in Malaysia. When I can find Bisquik mix at the store, I always make some for us.

    Love, love the Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuit! I usually purchase the Red Lobster
    Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix at my local BJ’S wholesale club and they come in a 2 lb. box. The
    only thing I add is the water or milk and grated extra sharp cheddar cheese and bake it in the oven for about 10 minutes. Goes great with tomato soup.
