Review: Red Lobster - Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix

Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix is a dry biscuit mix that you can use to make the chain's signature Cheddar Bay Biscuits at home.

An 11.35-oz box cost me $2.50 on sale and makes 10 biscuits.

These are pretty easy to make as you just need to add water and cheese (I went with Sargento Aged Cheddar) for the biscuit dough and butter for the garlic herb spread that goes on after baking.

The biscuits turned out really well. They developed a a craggy crisped crust and a soft, moist crumb (interior) with pockets of melted cheese after baking. I'm glad I went with the aged cheddar as the sharp cheddar flavor was discernable but not overpowering. Any cheese that leaked out browned nicely with a crispy texture.

The garlic herb spread provided a nice herby and buttery accent that went well with the biscuit without feeling too greasy.

All-in-all, Red Lobster's Cheddar Bay Biscuit Mix turns out some very enjoyable cheddar biscuits. I'm not sure how they compare to the chain's actual biscuit though as I don't live near Red Lobster and haven't been to one in over 10 years.
