These biscuits are cheesy and rich, and fairly close to the ones a famous seafood restaurant chain serves.
These were great! However, in this recipe along with the others I've found for Cheddar Bay Biscuits, The "Bay" is missing. I've discovered it's Old Bay Seasoning. Here in Pennsylvania it's found by the seafood in the supermarkets. I added a dash to the batter and 1/4 teaspoon to the butter mixture and THEN it was exactly like the famous seafood chain restaurant! - 13 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wonderful biscuits! For this recipe alone I have become one of "those" reviewers ~ I am rating this recipe on changes made before trying the original. I know, I know, shame on me! I am only doing so as I had items in the fridge that I needed to use up! Based on other reviews, I added the garlic and onion powder, parsley and 1/4 tsp of Old Bay seasoning to the mix. In place of the water, I used buttermilk which makes a more flavorful biscuit. As soon as the biscuits were done, I brushed the butter mixture (plus chives for color) on top of the biscuits and popped them back into the oven for about 2 minutes. Full of flavor, easy to make with ingredients usually found in any cooks kitchen! 5 Stars! - 16 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have always wanted to replicate the garlic-cheese biscuits from one of my favorit restaurants and now I can! I followed other reviewers advice and doubled the cheese (about 1 cup) as well as adding 1 tsp. of garlic, 1/4 tsp. onion powder and about 1/2 tsp. of dried parsley to the biscuit batter. In the butter, I added the called for amounts of garlic and onion powder, increased the parsley to 1/2 tsp (love the color and flavor) and omitted the salt. I used baking spray rather than parchment paper and took advice from another reviewer and brushed the biscuits with the butter and popped them back in the oven for a few minutes. Next time I will most likely increase the amount of garlic a bit and maybe make 1/2 a batch as these are hard to resist (I don't believe it's very kind to my waist line!) Thanks Cookie...and also, would you happen to have the restaurant recipe for the blackened fish spice blend??? Yummy! - 18 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
