Garlic for Breakfast??? Why Not!?

Recently I have been craving cheese biscuits from Red Lobster. I LOVE those things! I don’t even need real food when I go there. Just plop down about 4 baskets of those biscuits and I am in heaven! So, when I was asked to bring breakfast for Sunday School, I decided to look for a similar recipe and kill two birds with one stone: feed the class and indulge my craving. It was also something other than the typical breakfast casserole or doughnuts. I came across Paula Deen’s recipe for Garlic Cheese Biscuits and they looked simple enough to make on a Sunday morning before church. They turned out great, even if they weren’t “just” like Red Lobster’s. And I would probably omit the garlic next time and just top them with melted butter when taking them for Sunday School. I was amazed that some people don’t enjoy garlic for breakfast.

I tripled the recipe to make enough for my class. She says this makes 12 small biscuits, so I ended up with about 18 regular sized ones. You don't need to triple the garlic butter recipe though. You will have plenty if you just prepare it as instructed below. (I doubled it and had WAY too much butter left over)

Garlic Cheese Biscuits

Recipe courtesy Paula Deen

1 1/4 cups biscuit mix
1/2 cup grated sharp Cheddar
1/2 cup water

Garlic Butter:
1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine the biscuit mix and cheese in a small bowl. Add the water and stir just until combined. The dough will be slightly moist. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes, until the biscuits are firm and beginning to brown.

While the biscuits are baking, make the garlic butter. In a small bowl, combine the butter, garlic powder, salt, and parsley flakes. Mix well. As soon as you bring the biscuits from the oven, brush them with the garlic butter using a pastry brush.

If you use Bisquick, you get something very close to Red Lobster. You just have to drench them in garlic butter at the end and let them cook for another minute or two.
