I love dining out. It’s a treat for us and we make it worthwhile. Mike and I go the full gamete – appetizer, salad if we fee like it, entrees, maybe a drink, maybe dessert. We love to eat and love good food.
That being said, I hadn’t been to Red Lobster since I was a kid. I remembered my experiences fondly and loved their bread. I think I’m made my bread fixation well known at this point. It was a fond memory. When I came across this recipe, I knew I had to give the biscuits a try. To my delight they were just as I remembered. Then about a year later, Mike and I ended up at Red Lobster. We ordered, ate, and got their biscuits. I didn’t remember them being so salty. I was disappointed with my memory of the bread, but grateful to have my recipe. These biscuits may be knock offs, but I think they’re better than the original.

If you don't have Bisquick you can make your own by whisking together 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Then use a fork to cut in 1 tablespoon shortening or melted butter, until evenly distributed. Makes 1 cup.
