See if you can follow: this is a recipe I adapted from Pinterest that was already the Weight Watcher's version of Red Lobsters Cheddar Biscuits. Confusing? Maybe. Delicious? You bet.
I have never been to a Red Lobster (I am allergic to shellfish if that makes this more believable). I have, however, heard wonderful things about their Cheddar Biscuits. From their commercials alone, I can only imagine what they must taste like. These are amazing in and of themselves even if they are a lightened up version.
I pretty much had everything on hand in my stockpile to make these except for the Reduced Fat Bisquick. That required a special trip to the store but once I got the idea to make these nothing was going to stop me. Not even having to ask 5 different employees where this product was located.
It was well worth the effort. My version has a little less cheese than the original because as I was adding it it seemed like there was plenty of cheese.
These took a total of 5 minutes to whip up up and they made a perfect addition to our dinner of Cooking Light's Baked Potato Soup and salad. Pair this with the fact that I made WW Frozen Butterfingers Pie for dessert and my husband couldn't believe it was a Monday night at our house.
WW Cheddar Biscuits- 3 PointsPlus each
- 2 cups reduced fat Bisquick
- 3/4 cup low fat buttermilk
- 1 cup low fat shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons diet margarine (I used Smart Balance)
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley (I used the finely crushed)
1. Combine the baking mix, milk, and cheddar cheese in a medium bowl.
2. Mix with your hands until completely combined.
3. Form into balls about three tablespoons in size. I used an ice cream scoop that is three tablespoons.
4. Place them a few inches apart on a lightly sprayed baking sheet.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until lightly brown.
6. While they are in the oven, melt the margarine and mix with garlic powder (I also added a little garlic salt).
7. Right when the biscuits come out of the oven brush them with melted margarine mixture and then sprinkle the crushed parsley on top. Serve hot.
