Bisquick Cheese Biscuits

20-minute Bisquick cheese biscuits are so easy to make you can have fresh-baked batch whenever you want. They are made with cheddar cheese and a few other simple ingredients. If you love warm homemade biscuits that aren’t a pain to make this is the recipe to try.

I bake a lot and, when I have time, I don’t mind tackling challenging recipes, but most of the time I want to make easy recipes and these Bisquick cheese biscuits are my newest discovery.

I had a very large block of cheddar cheese in my fridge and I was looking for ways to use it up. I found a recipe on All Recipes for cheddar biscuits that looked perfect. Of course, I played around with it and created my own version which I really enjoyed.

The recipe is so quick to whip up and tastes very similar to the cheese biscuits served at Red Lobster. I put in a lot more cheese than the recipe called for (I need to get rid of all the cheese!), and less butter than the recipe called for (since the butter is only used to be brushed on at the end).  Even with all the extra cheese I used, I didn’t think the cheese taste was overwhelming in the biscuit.

Like my 7-Up biscuits, these ones are made with Bisquick which is such a great shortcut. All of the dry ingredients you need are already in the mix so you don’t have to drag everything out of the pantry. Start to finish the biscuits only take 20 minutes.

I think these would be perfect with a bowl of chicken noodle soup or cauliflower soup. They’d also be great for breakfast, too.

Bisquick Cheese Biscuits Ingredients

  • 2 cups Bisquick baking mix
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/8 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

All you do is mix the Bisquick with the milk and cheese until a soft dough forms. Drop the dough by the spoonful on a baking sheet. Bake them for 10 minutes at 450°F.

Combine the melted butter with the garlic powder and brush the mixture on top of the warm biscuits.

I’ll make these again because they are so easy and they’re delicious, too. I love warm biscuits straight from the oven and these are so quick you can make them just before you serve them.

  1. My spouse quote “OMG these are delicious”.

  2. I am allergic to garlic – so I add Italian seasoning – adds just a bite of flavour

  3. Pingback: World Spinner

  4. Carol- Interesting on the mac and cheese powder. I’ll have to try it out some time.

  5. joanh- hope you like the recipe!

  6. I haven’t made cheesy Bisquick biscuit in ages. I could never get the extra cheesiness either but I had a version that a friend made using the cheese powder from Kraft mac and cheese to enhance the cheese flavor. It was really good, better than the original Bisquick recipe.

  7. looks easy and delicious! i’ll have to try it when i get back to LA. haven’t had Red Lobster in SO long

  8. JaneDoughnut- I wish I had discovered this recipe earlier! So simple and yummy.

  9. Hi Cookie- Oops. I forgot to include that info. The recipe as written makes about 10 biscuits. If you reheat them, I recommend doing so in the oven or toaster oven.

  10. I LOVE the biscuits at Red Lobster! Do these make a lot of biscuits and are they still good reheated? I ask because there are only 2 of us in the house and we can only eat so many biscuits in 1 sitting no matter how good they are.

  11. I’ve been making these for years. They are always a big hit and no one ever guesses they are made with a baking mix!
