When I was a kid Red Lobster was one of my favorite places to eat. I didn't get to go very often, so it was special when we did. The Cheddar Bay biscuits were the best part of the meal. I think I could make a meal with just a basket of those.
These days, we don't frequent R.L. too often, but when we do my kids are the same way. They are usually filled up on bread by the time their food gets to the table.
I first made these several years ago. I decided to make them again tonight after my kids had mentioned them. I'd forgotten how good they are. The perfect accompaniment to your main dish and salad. Or, if the kids are gone, a meal all by themselves.
