Red Lobster Style Cheddar Bay Biscuits (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Fiddle-Faddle in the Gluten-Free Forum. This is an adaptation of Robyn Ryberg's biscuits, found here on

1/3 cup shortening
½ cup potato starch
¾ cup cornstarch
1 ¾ teaspoon xanthan gum
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon sugar
¾ cup milk
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
¼ cup butter, softened (optional--makes a very fattening biscuit!)
Another ¼ cup butter, melted, mixed with ¼ - ½ teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 375F. In medium bowl, blend all ingredients except for last two. Mix very well to remove any lumps. Dough will be quite soft and a bit sticky. Roll or pat our dough on a lightly floured (cornstarch) surface. Dough should be about ½ inch thick. Cut out biscuits with 2 ½ inch cookie cutters. An inverted glass will also do the job. Place biscuits on lightly-greased baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned. As soon as they come out of the oven, brush with melted butter/garlic combination.

Makes 6-8 large biscuits. welcomes your comments below (registration is NOT required).

In the recipe instructions, when do you add in the last two ingredients? After mixing everything else? Clarify this and it would be an awesome recipe!

last two ingredients are the butter and garlic for the top after they're cooked.

I used bacon grease from the day before.. it was about, I dunno 1/3 cup? I didn't measure, Lowered the butter to 2 Tblsn, baked @ 375 for about 15 mins, let em sit in the oven till the tops were golden. And I tell you what, these are amazing!!!!

I made these last week and they were delicious. Then we went Red Lobster and I tried a bite of theirs and I decided I like the gluten free biscuits better. I also modified and used garbanzo flour, as I am trying to limit corn intake.

I haven't tried this recipe yet (I am going to Red Lobster today though, and plan on making them to take with me, though!), but I thought I'd share the "secret" to making them taste more like the real thing. after they come out of the oven, ever so lightly sprinkle the tops with LEMON JUICE! Before my family went GF, we were kind of red lobster aficionados, and I made my glutenous version at home, and the lemon juice adds that last step that most copy-cat recipes leave out. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Oh my goodness! Praise God for this recipe. I was so upset tonight because we were going to Red Lobster and I knew I couldn't have their biscuits. I made these in under 20 minutes and they are FANTASTIC. I am bringing them with me to Red lobster so I won't feel so left out. THANK YOU!!!!!!

According to the manager at the Red Lobster we went to, their biscuits ARE gluten-free, but they wouldn't tell me what they use instead of flour. They said they use a biscuit mix, cheese and butter to make theirs and if it says it's gluten-free, then it is gluten-free. I tempted fate and tried them and have not had a reaction yet, but that was just last night.

FYI- I just replied about Red Lobster's menu saying the cheddar biscuits were gluten-free. The menu they gave me said it was (I checked multiple times and had my husband check too) but the gluten-free menu online says they are not gluten-free. Maybe they are trying a different recipe at that particular location.

I made these a couple of weeks ago and they didn't even last 2 hours in our house! I am gluten-free but my husband and kids are not and they even LOVED them!! I did not roll them out, I dropped spoon fulls onto the cookie tray and they turned out perfect. The next time I make them I will be making a double batch!

Thank you all for your comments I love the biscuits from red lobster but can't eat them whenever we go there. Now I will bake me some and bring with me when we go again.

All Activity Celiac Disease & Gluten-Free Diet Forum - All Activity

Love reading this story as it is rare (I think) to find someone else with the swallowing issues! Hate that this is your experience however! My daughter also has the swallowing issues and it got so severe (we had no idea about Celiac) that she had to do intensive therapy to learn how to swallow again. It got better but never resolved. Once she went gluten-free it got way better though a recent exposure to oats caused it to flare up again. Do you mind me asking - Has your swallowing issues 100% resolved being gluten-free? Does it ever actually go away and stay away or will it always pop up from time to time?

I will say what everyone else says and get tested again with the endoscope and biopsy to confirm, you will need to be on gluten for 12 weeks for blood test 2 weeks for endoscope at least a slice of bead a day. The thing about celiac is many symptoms can be quite minor, hell even before I had my MAJOR symptoms show I had some of the other issues show up in my every day life and I just thought it was normal. Regardless if you keep eating gluten with celiac disease it will slowly eat away at your body internally til it does become a problem. Celiac is a autoimmune disease that reacts to the gluten proteins, and has misdirected attacks on your own body internally by mistake trying to kill the gluten. Now the damage can lead to all kinds of other auto immune diseases, random allergies, food intolerance, and even cancer. I suggest if you do have it, stay on the gluten-free diet, your just basically changing brands there are many gluten-free food versions of everything now days. Be thankful you got this early, I developed issues with dairy, corn, peanuts, and a whole list of others along with another autoimmune disease Ulcerative Colitis that makes it so I can not eat sugars or carbs or my intestines swell. Getting on a gluten-free diet before your damage progresses will not only keep you healthier for longer, and let you live a pretty normal life but also save you from this pain and very limited diet if the damage progresses too much. As to your fatigue, you changed over to gluten-free diet, you stopped eating a bunch of the Fortified foods, and depending on the route you took of either whole foods ore more processed foods. You could be eating to many empty carbs, starches, and not enough nutrients. OR if you took the whole foods approach you be lacking in your daily calorie intake or not the right ratio of nutrients. You might have to supplement a few of them.

REALLY odd call out here, I am attending a anime convention called A-Fest in Dallas come August, I need someone to split the room with it who is gluten-free. I take extra precautions, I COOK all the food, bring only CERTIFIED foods into the room, The room will be Gluten Free, Corn Free, Dairy Free, Peanut Free. I am trying to find someone to split the room cost with, that would be safe to be around I CAN NOT AFFORD to get sick at one of these things, it is one of my few joys left in life and get very paranoid around them. So I need someone who is also gluten-free to make sure the room stays safe (YES I have done with with a non celiac with the rules down and well stuff happens so not chancing it). Room split is food coverage comes to $400 if it is just two people. 4 day convention, I will arrange a meal plan around your diet as long as it is free of my allergens. I will also provide various snacks, baked goods, and even stuff to take home with you. ^Convention info.

Hi Jennifer, This thread might have some information that would help you. Your doctors are pretty lame IMHO. Perhaps you can find a celiac group in your area that has local meetings for support. They might also suggest a different doctor who knows how to treat celiac patients.

The initial reason gluten free diets came about was to treat a condition called celiac disease?an autoimmune disorder known to affect at least three ... View the full article
