What biscuit mix ingredients are in Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits?

  • Bisquick Mix: this is our easy biscuit base

  • Milk: when baking milk adds flavor but also the proteins in the milk help keep the biscuits moist and flaky

  • Garlic Powder: this mixes with melted butter to make a delicious garlic butter topping

How long do garlic cheddar biscuits last?

These Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits will keep one or two days at room temperature, up to a week in the fridge, or up to three months in the freezer if stored properly.

How to store leftover Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits:

Store covered in an airtight container.

Depending on the humidity where you live, leaving them stored loosely (not airtight) will do 2 things.

  1. If you live in a very humid climate, storing biscuits not airtight will cause your biscuits to mold faster.
  2. If you live in a very dry climate, storing biscuits loosely will cause them to dry out and become hard like rocks faster.

Pro Tip: Once your leftover biscuits are cooled, immediately put them in an airtight container to keep them fresh as long as possible.

Can I freeze Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits?

Yes! Once they have cooked and cooled completely, wrap them individually in aluminum foil or wrap then put in a zip bag or freezer safe container into the freezer.

The extra step of plastic wrap or foil helps to prevent freezer burn and can keep the biscuits fresh for up to three months.

How do you reheat leftover Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits?

  • Pop one in the microwave for 10 seconds.
  • Reheat in the toaster oven until warmed.
  • Thaw frozen biscuits in the refrigerator overnight and then cover with foil and warm in the oven.

Pro Tip: While you can eat these cheesy biscuits at room temperature, biscuits always taste better warmed up. But be careful not to heat them too much or they will dry out and get rock hard.
