A New Pregnancy Craving

Last night for dinner, we had chili that had been in the freezer from a batch I'd made a few weeks ago. Quite tasty, I might add. But I wanted to have something else with it and since cornbread is out (either it has eggs in it OR the eggless recipes I have are the crumbliest things I've ever seen!), I wanted to find something to go with it. Enter the Bisquick website and I found a recipe for the most wonderful Cheese Garlic biscuits, EVER. Some of the reviews say they taste a LOT like the ones from Red Lobster, so I'll leave that up to you to decide. But I did alter the recipe a little to increase it from 5 biscuits to 8 and according to some of the reviewers. So without futher adieu, here it is:

Cheese Garlic Biscuits (egg free!)

1 1/2 cups of Bisquick (regular or lite)
2/3 to 3/4 cup of milk (start with 2/3 and if it's too dry, gradually add a little more)
2/3 cup of cheddar cheese (all I had was a Mexican blend and that worked fine too!)
1/3 tsp garlic powder

1. Heat oven to 450 degrees and lightly grease a cookie sheet.

2. In a bowl, mix all ingredients together. The batter should not be runny but also not too thick.

3. Spoon "blobs" of biscuit batter onto the greased cookie sheet and bake for 9 minutes or until golden brown.

4. For an extra treat, about halfway through, mix a little bit of melted butter with a sprinkling of garlic powder and brush over the half baked biscuits.

I have leftover chili and one of these biscuits in my lunch today. Is it noon yet????

I've made those before, Erika, and they are SO good - and I do think they taste similar to Red Lobster's!

That sounds so good. Of course pretty much anything with cheese is high on my list of favorites.

These are also wonderful if you brush them with garlic butter before and after baking. Heh.

Oops, duh... just read step 4. ;)

I actually have the recipe for Red Lobster's - so I'll have to see how close it is! Thanks for sharing................
