Red Lobster is best known for this biscuit. It's estimated that in 1997 the chain served over 435 million of these puppies. But, since this is a book of low-fat and reduced-fat recipes, and since each of those small biscuits has around 7 grams of fat, we're going to make this recipe unique. I'll show you how to make this the low fat way. The key is using reduced-fat Bisquick as well as reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese. This is an easy recipe to make, and these biscuits are scrumptious
2 cups Reduced fat Bisquick
3/4 cup Lowfat buttermilk, 1% fat
Lowfat cheddar cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons Diet margarine
1/4 teaspoon Garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon Dried parsley, crushed fine
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Combine the baking mix, 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 or until the tops of the biscuits begin to brown.
In a small bowl, combine the buttery spread with the garlic powder.
Heat this mixture for 30 seconds in the microwave, then brush a light coating over the top of each biscuit immediately after removing them from the oven.
Sprinkle a dash of parsley over the top of each biscuit.
To make fine parsley flakes, as can be found on the original, simply crush the flakes between your thumb and forefinger.
