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

Ingredients
2 cups Reduced fat Bisquick
3/4 cup Lowfat buttermilk, 1% fat
1 cup
Lowfat cheddar cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons Diet margarine
1/4 teaspoon Garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon Dried parsley, crushed fine


Preparation
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.

Cook's Notes
To make fine parsley flakes, as can be found on the original, simply crush the flakes between your thumb and forefinger.

Does anyone have a healthy redo of the cheddar biscuits you get at Red Lobster. Love those things and haven't had one in a long time. There has to be a healthier version out there somewhere.

Thanks.
Jennifer
