Have any of you been to a Red Lobster? Anyone?
Oh, you think since I'm a food blogger and such that I don't ever frequent chain resturants. Well, you could not be more wrong. My grandpa loves Red Lobster. And if Grandpa Jack wants to eat at Red Lobster, well then, that's where we're going. 🙂
Fine with me anyway, because they have these things called Cheddar Bay Biscuits. They are quite tasty.These are Cheddar Bay Biscuit's spicy cousin. But not too spicy, don't worry. Just the right amount. Or at least that's my opinion. You should totally make these and see what you think. Jalapeño & Cheese Biscuits, makes ten to twelve.
2 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons cold butter
1 cup buttermilk
1 jalapeño, sliced thin + seeds and veins removed
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Use a pastry blender to incorporate the cold butter.Stir in the chopped jalapeño and cheese. Pour in the buttermilk and stir until a loose dough ball forms. Turn out on to a lightly floured surface and knead a few times. Roll out the dough. Use a biscuit cutter to cut out 10-12 biscuits. If you can't find your biscuit cutter (what the heck!?), use a heart-shaped cookie cutter instead. Or you can use the top of a drinking glass or just cut them into squares.
Tip: If you want these a bit more spicy leave some of the jalapeño seeds in. The seeds contain a lot of the heat. Just FYI.Place the biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with one egg whisked with a tablespoon or so of water (egg wash). This will give your biscuits a beautiful, golden top. Bake at 400°F for 14-15 minutes.These are awesome paired with scrambled eggs or mushroom gravy for breakfast. Or you could totally serve this alongside soup or chili for lunch or dinner. Enjoy these! xo. Emma

this sounds like something my boyfriend would love. i’m going to add these to my 1 million recipe long list of things to make! Thanks!!
I used one cup all purpose flour and one cup wheat flour and these biscuits turned out pretty terrible. They didn’t cook all the way through– I had to almost double the baking time and the biscuits were not flaky. Would this be because of the one cup wheat flour??
Dude. Seriously awesome!
Are these like Scones in the UK? Also, what could I use instead of buttermilk in the recipe as it’s not widely available here!
These look fantastic. I’ve always wanted to try biscuits or savoury scones as they’re called here. Question though, is it possible to freeze these after baking? There is no way I could eat them all by myself so if I could store them in the freezer and reheat when I feel like one that would be awesome. Kudos for the recipe! 🙂
Tried them with New Mexico Green Chile. In my opinion, better than the jalapeño!
My Grandma loves red lobster too. And considering that we are hispanics that like a little spice, I think she would love these. I need to make them for her.
Emma, do you know how many grams of butter correspond to the 6 tablespoons?
I have been hesitant to try baking biscuits but this seems super easy. Thanks for sharing!! Pinned 🙂
Really love the added photo of Emma pressing out the biscuits – nice touch to a food recipe post. And these look absolutely delish!
i can already see my boyfriend dying with happiness if i made these bad boys. they look amazing! YUM!
My husband would just adore these!
These look delicious! I love a little kick to add to breakfast or a nice tomato soup!
All your recipes are super cute and tasty! Have you ever considered making downloadable and printable recipe cards? I think they would be great 🙂
These look amazing! My hubby and I go to Red Lobster just for the biscuits. The rest of the meal, eh…
Do you have a link anywhere to “printer friendly” formats for your recipes?
