  2. This recipe is almost identical in taste to the famous Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits that you get at the restaurant. Hope you enjoy! Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits 2 cups reduced fat Bisquick 3/4 cup lowfat buttermilk -- 1% fat 1 cup lowfat cheddar cheese -- shredded 2 tablespoons diet margarine 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley -- crushed fine Preheat the oven to 400 º F. Combine the baking mix, milk, and cheddar cheese in a medium bowl. Mix by hand until well combined. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions (about 3 tablespoons each) and spoon onto a lightly greased or nonstick cookie sheet. Flatten each biscuit a bit with your fingers. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to brown. In a small bowl, combine the buttery spread with the garlic powder. Heat this mixture for 30 seconds in the microwave, then brush a light coating over the top of each biscuit immediately after removing them from the oven. Sprinkle a dash of parsley over the top of each biscuit.
