Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits

Monday, December 8, 2008

The boys and I love Red Lobster and it’s usually our restaurant of choice for birthday dinners. I have a good story from my Birthday at Red Lobster last year but I don’t think it’s for everyone (especially if you have a weak stomach), so I will post my story as a comment to this post if you are interested click “comments” below. Anyways, back to the biscuits! I found this top secret recipe on the ABC News Website and gave it a try. Of course it’s not as good as the real thing but they were the best biscuits I’ve ever made!

2 1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix
3/4 cup cold whole milk
4 tablespoons butter (1/2 stick)
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese
Dried parsley flakes, sprinkled on top

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Combine Bisquick with butter in a medium bowl, add cheddar cheese, milk, and garlic salt and mix until combined. Drop approximately 1/4 cup portions of the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet (I put them on non-stick foil) using an ice cream scoop. Sprinkled parsley flakes over the top of the biscuit balls and bake for 15 to 17 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown.

Carrie’s Birthday Disaster (written for our family and friends on January 31st 2008)

Okay… so it really isn’t a disaster, we actually think it’s hilarious. Here’s the story… Carrie’s Birthday was yesterday and we went to dinner at Red Lobster. Abbott (our 6-year-old) started off with a big glass of chocolate milk and a cheddar biscuit. Then his favorite, crab legs; he ate probably 5 crab legs and a pile of mashed potatoes. While everyone is finishing Abbott utters “I think I am going to throw up”, and not but 1 second after saying that his jaw unhinges like a snake and he starts to heave. Carrie grabbed the crab legs shelling bowl and there in the middle of Red Lobster, Abbott puked.

Abbott filled the bowl with a mashed potato and crab spew soup so Carrie grabbed the 2nd shelling bowl and Abbot filled that one with chocolate milk ralf. I don’t know which was worse, the stunned stares we received from the tables beside us or the fact that we didn’t have anywhere to set the bowls except right back into the middle of our table.

Our waiter walked by a minute later and quickly took a double-take with a “What the… Oh… it looks like somebody ate too much”. We think his response seemed to imply that he’s seen this before; maybe Red Lobster should reconsider their “all you can eat” entrees. We apologized to the waiter, but he wasn’t about to pick up the vomit bowls. So the bowls just set on our table for the remainder of our time there. At one point the manager brought over our receipt and pointed out that we were randomly selected to take a survey about our meal, which sent Carrie into a fit of ironic nervous laughter. The manager didn’t seem to notice the barf basins, he merely looked at them inquisitively as if trying to figure out when they started serving the new Lobster Bisque and Dirty Gumbo. His gaze did however switch to Carrie when she started rolling with giggles, through which she said that she “was sorry …but Abbott… just got sick… so this is just so weird”. The manager again didn’t seem to put together that bowls before him were actually regurgitated, but it’s probably best that he didn’t.

We didn’t want to risk spilling the bowls by taking them to the bathroom to pour out, so we left them on the table (along with the biggest tip we have ever given in our lives) and left the Red Lobster, which we are probably never welcome at again.

We spent the rest of the night laughing and reminiscing about our experience. It is definitely one we won’t forget! Carrie’s 27th Birthday… oh yes, the year Abbott blew chucks at Red Lobster.

We can hear it already!
Justin and Carrie

What a story!! I can't believe they didn't clean up the barf! At least it made for a memorable birthday.

I've never been a huge fan of Red Lobster, but do LOVE the cheddar biscuits, my boyfriend has never had them so I think I'll have to add this into my "to try recipes".
