Tried these last night and they were awesome! I used things I had on hand like Mexican cheese blend instead of cheddar and half and half for the milk and added a bit of dried parsley (about 1 tsp). Will definitely make again. We needed something to go with Spaghetti and these were really the right choice. This gets 5 stars from our household.

I make these almost once a week now. They are super easy to whip up and the whole family likes the biscuits. They go with a lot of different dishes too so it's just an easy side bread to serve. My daughter likes to make little sandwiches with the biscuits cutin halves.

I love this recipe. I've made these biscuits numerous times and they are always good. To me they are better than RL's. They are very easy to make and they make good leftovers too. They're not exactly like RL biscuits but they are similar to them and delicious.

Very good and close to RL. I add some chopped parsley to the mix.

If these don't turn out for you, your Bisquick mix is bad. It has a limited shelf life. Beyond that, these are foolproof. I always use whole milk. Great excuse to heat up the oven on a cold day!

I'm with everyone else, these are just like RL! The only thing I didn't do was "beat vigorously", I just mixed it until fully mixed. I was afraid that overbeating it would make the biscuits too dense. I used real butter not margarine and fresh garlic as recommended (simmered it in the butter over very low heat before basting the biscuits). Super easy to make too and goes with any meal. Has anyone tried freezing these? I'm wondering how to best reheat them (I think they'll freeze fine just not sure how to reheat). Would I brush the butter on after reheating?

These are exactly like Red Lobster. If they don't turn out for you to be just like RL, then it's your problem not the recipe. I have made these three times now and they turn out each time and taste just like RL.
