Only used this ready made mix to make pancakes in the morning? There are SO many other things you can make with it well beyond that. We first made Bisquick muffins with it and couldn’t believe how yummy they were. Then we went on to experiment beyond that. There WILL be even more coming out soon so subscribe to my newsletter below.

There are two varieties. The yellow box is what you’re used to and this white one has a bit less fat for a healthier version. Either one will work to make these. Of course you can cook air fryer frozen biscuits for an easy hand held side. If you want more wow though I would go for homemade.

If you have made these plain this isn’t a huge difference. The biggest is the addition of shredded cheddar cheese. I prefer sharp but you could go with medium, or mix white and yellow cheddar. A garlic butter sauce is brushed or poured on top as well. Of course this is optional but why would you NOT want to add it??

Why are my Bisquick biscuits crumbly?

There are a few reasons you can run down and then change things up the next time you make them. If you use their heart healthy version there is less fat, meaning they won’t be as fluffy and moist.
#2 When rolling them out you may have used too much flour and dried out the dough. #3 fat free milk won’t make them as moist as using whole that contains more fat.

A tip when making any sort of dough you’re baking is to NOT over-mix them either. Just blend ingredients until it’s moist and then stop. Use very little flour to roll out on to a cutting board (if you’re doing that, not here). Read all 4 tips on how to make Bisquick biscuits fluffy here, then proceed.

Bisquick Garlic Cheese Biscuits

If you have your oven preheated and baking sheets ready to drop the dough balls you can pop them in and make the butter drizzle. Add the seasonings you like, taste as you go and make it the perfect flavor. I am obsessed with using air fryer garlic diced into this mix and on top as well. It’s great for you and the taste is amazing.

  1. Baking mix
    1. there is a gluten free version too
  2. Milk, whole is best for sure to make them as moist and tender as possible
  3. Garlic powder
  4. Salt
  5. Old Bay is probably one of my favorite seasonings to use on all the things
  6. Shredded cheese is a must, sharp variety is our favorite one to use

For the drizzle on top you’re going to need butter, garlic powder, minced garlic, Old Bay, and chopped parsley. If you’re trying to make Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuits this is a must to try and make them taste the same.

You do not have to roll these out and/or use cookie cutters to shape them. That means they are easier to make and you’ll eliminate possibly drying them out with additional flour. Involve your kids with this one too. It only needs a little elbow grease to incorporate with a wooden or plastic spoon. You just:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl mix in a bowl your Bisquick mix, salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and 1/4 tsp Old bay. Pour in your whole milk and blend into dough forms. Fold in cheese and gently combine.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper and drop 1 heaping tbsp. on top with space in between, this recipe will make 6-8.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes or until golden browned on the edges and center of garlic biscuits is no longer sticky.

For butter mixture, melt butter, minced garlic, remaining garlic powder, parsley, and remaining Old bay. Stir together and drizzle on top of each one before serving. If you love Red Lobster you are going to be obsessed with these. Our pizza muffins are great hand held YUMs too.

If you are making these in the summertime and don’t want to heat up your entire house you can follow our air fryer biscuits temp. and timing. That is a great way to cook a small batch at a time. If there are only a few of you at home you can cook a few and then wait until dinner and bake the remaining dough.

How do you store biscuits for later?

Wait until they are all cooled down completely and no longer warm. Get a piece of aluminum foil out and wrap them tightly. Then slide this into a freezer bag so they are laying flat. This way they will remain moist on the countertop (not fridge) for 1-2 days. After that they will change texture especially if you have the butter on top.

You could freeze them to last longer. If you do allow them to defrost on the countertop for a few hours. Enjoy them cold or warm again in the microwave for 30 seconds and serve with other leftovers.
