Cheddar Bay Biscuits

To go along with our Shrimp-Corn Chowder, I decided to serve it with homemade Cheddar Bay Biscuits. As most of you know these biscuits are the popular bread served at Red Lobster, so I figured that they would be a perfect side for our soup. I made a few changes to the recipe I found, and they were great! They would be awesome with any main dish to be honest, and guess what... they are super easy to make. So whip these babies up next time your in a bind for time and I guarantee you that everyone will be satisfied! Enjoy :)
Cheddar Bay Biscuits
For the Biscuits:
2 ½C Bisquick Baking Mix
¾C Milk
4T Cold Butter
¼t Garlic Powder & Old Bay Seasoning
3T Chives, Thinly Sliced
1C Cheddar Cheese, Grated
Salt & Pepper, To Taste

For the Garlic Butter:
4T Butter, Melted
½t Fresh Parsley, Minced  
1t Garlic Powder
Salt, To Taste

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
2. Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a mixing bowl, using a pastry cutter. Don’t mix too much & leave small chunks of butter throughout. Add in the chives, cheddar cheese, milk, garlic powder, old bay, salt, and pepper. Mix by hand until combined (don’t over mix).
3. Drop roughly ¼C size balls of dough onto a cookie sheet (I used an ice cream scoop).
4. In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, parsley, garlic powder, & salt. Set aside.
5. Bake for 10 minutes and brush some of the butter on top of the biscuits, and return to the oven to bake for another 10 minutes. Once they are cooked through & golden brown, brush them with more garlic butter.
6. Serve immediately.
