I couldn’t tell you the last time I ate at Red Lobster. Probably when my children were in elementary school. I do remember they had awesome garlicky, buttery biscuits and at some point they were replaced by the cheddar biscuits. Anyway, about a month ago this post showed up in my Facebook feed and I liked the idea of a “biscuit bread.”
There’s nothing complicated about this recipe. It’s a standard quick bread with some cheese thrown in. I added some garlic powder in a nod to the biscuits I remember eating and substituted plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream in the original.
The resulting loaf had a nice texture with a nice cheesy, garlicky flavor. We slathered the slices with butter and cheese and served them with a bowl of soup. The next day we toasted slices in the oven for breakfast. Does it taste like Red Lobster’s biscuits? You’ll have to make a loaf and let me know.
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- palm full of dried parsley (about ¼ cup)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup milk
- ¾ cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 egg, beaten
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare a 9x5" loaf pan with baking spray
- Measure the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Stir the cheese in and use your fingers to break up any clumps.
- In a separate bowl, beat all the wet ingredients together.
- Mix the wet ingredients into the dry until just mixed, a few lumps are ok.
- Transfer to the loaf pan and bake for 45 - 50 minutes. Cover the top with foil if necessary to prevent over browning.
- After baking remove the loaf from the pan and allow to cool completely before slicing.
