I think most people would agree that the biscuits at Red Lobster are one of the best reasons for eating there. They are so ridiculously buttery and fluffy but not so figure friendly. I saw these skinny versions of the biscuits and gave them a try when we had our friends over for dinner. They are pretty darn close to the original but you can enjoy them without the guilt - only 107 calories and 3 grams of fat per biscuit. They are a cinch to make and so yummy I am thinking of making them again tonight for my hubby's Father's Day dinner. One note -- make sure to serve them right out of the oven!
Skinny Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits
From WW Recipes
Makes 12 Biscuits
2 cups reduced fat Bisquick
3/4 cup low fat buttermilk
1 cup shredded low fat cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons light butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (I used real minced garlic)
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the bisquick, 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 until the tops begin to brown. In a small bowl combine the butter with the garlic powder or minced garlic and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Brush garlic butter on the top of each biscuit immediately after removing from the oven. Sprinkle a dash of parsley over to top of each biscuit and serve immediately.
