With having a terrible seafood allergy one would think I wouldn’t even step into a Red Lobster, but who can resist the buttery garlic biscuits from time to time.  Through the years I have come across many a recipe claiming to be the copycat version of these tender treats but I finally found one that could satisfy the most faithful Red Lobster fan.  I don’t recall when or where the recipe came from but kudos to whomever figured it out and for their lovely  photo..which looks better than one I could have taken for sure!

  1. My son started working for Red Lobster in high school. He worked all through college and ended up an area manager for several restaurants for them. The secret ingredient in the butter sauce topping is white wine. I use white wine, butter, a bit of Italian seasoning and parsley. Yum 🙂

  2. I like to use organic when I can.Its nice to know that I can find most of what I need to make these recipes in organic. Winters almost here and I will be trying out more new dishes.The cheddar biscuits sounds yummy.
