Ruby Tuesday HACK! Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

While on our family reunion trip over Labor Day weekend, several of us ate out together after arriving that first night.  The fact that Ruby Tuesday was beside our motel made our dinner there a no-brainer.

Have you ever eaten their cheddar biscuits?  I’ve eaten at a lot of Ruby Tuesday restaurants over the years and somehow avoided being served their cheddar biscuits.  I still wonder how that happened…all I’d been missing!

As we nibbled the biscuits, we discussed what could be in them to make them taste so good. What were the green flecks? The waitress clued is in…parsley.

Fun Son stopped by for dinner the other night, so I took the opportunity to try out my version of the cheddar cheese biscuits.

I’d detected a hint of garlic, and if I were Ruby Tuesday, I would call them “Cheddar Garlic Biscuits”.

Cheddar Cheese Biscuits

These biscuits are mixed and baked pretty much in the same way as my 3-Ingredient Scratch Buttermilk Biscuits. Five additional ingredients are easily added – seasonings and cheese.

HH and Fun Son gave me their thumbs-up as they devoured the biscuits. Repeats will be requested.

A savory, buttery cheese biscuit with hints of garlic and parsley seasonings.
Kim:
Recipe type: Bread
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, chilled
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon dried parsley
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese (mild or sharp, your choice)
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
Instructions
  1. Cut butter into flour with pastry cutter or 2 knives until crumbly.
  2. Add seasonings and shredded cheese and continue cutting in until shreds resemble small chunks.
  3. With fork, mix buttermilk into flour mixture until combined into a.ball (may have some loose flour, but that's OK).
  4. Place onto floured board and mash into a 1" thick rectangle or square.
  5. Fold in half and mash again. Repeat one more time. Pat to ¾" thickness.
  6. Slice into 12 squares to your liking and place on baking sheet in different directions, corners touching.
  7. Bake in 375-degree oven for 25 minutes.

For a closer match to Ruby Tuesday’s biscuits, add an additional half a stick of butter to my recipe.  I just couldn’t bring myself to make mine that buttery.

Do you try to limit your butter consumption?  Or, are you in Paula Deen’s camp?  More butter is always  better?

      That’s funny that Red Lobster has something similar and I knew nothing about that, either. I’m not a seafood fan at all, so I’ll stick with making these at home. Ha! I hope y’all enjoy these “cheddar ‘garlic’ biscuits”! Happy weekend to you and yours.

    Great minds think alike, or maybe we just love food. Pam is right Red lobster has cheddar Bay biscuits that are very similar. I think they use bay seasoning mixed with melted butter and then brush it over the top, anyway, I was thinking of making them this weekend, wish me luck. I will try yours as well as I have never been to Ruby Tuesday, lol. Have a great day.

      Hmm…bay seasoning, I’m sure would taste great in these. And brushing them with butter after removing from the oven would be “over the moon” delicious! Thanks for sharing your tips. I hope your weekend is fabulous, and your cheddar biscuits also! 🙂

      I’m so out of the Red Lobster loop. I wonder if there are only a few RT’s that serve the biscuits. Glad I found one! Yes, brushing with melted butter would be awesome! 🙂
