Cheddar Bay Biscuits

by Michaela

I have discovered these cheddar biscuits randomly on Pinterest when searching some salty appetizers for a house party. Given the number of pins for these biscuits, it seems these are very popular in the US and so I decided to give it a try. And they did not disappoint us! Since then, I make these Cheddar Bay Biscuits regularly – not only as an appetizer, but they are great to go with seafood, soups or salads too! 

Soft Cheddar Bay Biscuits topped with a mixture of melted butter, garlic powder and parsley are great as an appetizer but also to go with seafood or soups.

I did some googling about these Cheddar Bay Biscuits and found out that in the US, these are well-known thanks to the Red Lobster restaurant chain. They were first tested in few restaurants in Georgia as a freshly baked cheese bread with a lot of success which led to its introduction throughout the US in the Red Lobster restaurant chain. Served apparently in small baskets to accompany seafood. They became so popular that the restaurant chain bake around 400 million biscuits per year (I know that Google does not always say the truth, so correct me if I´m wrong). Once I will visit the US, I will hopefully try them out. 🙂
