One thing that most people look forward to when dining at Red Lobster is their Cheddar Bay Biscuits.  According to, they were created as a savory biscuit to replace hush puppies.

After being tested in Georgia at a few restaurants, the biscuits made their official debut in the early 1990’s.  Their name is a nod to the restaurant’s seaside atmosphere and not after a real location.

Today there will be approximately 1.1 million Cheddar Bay Biscuits baked fresh across the 700+ Red Lobster locations.

How To Make Keto Biscuits

These almond flour biscuits are leavened with eggs and baking powder and are formed as drop biscuits.  To make them, you need the following ingredients:

  • cup almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp dried parsley
  • 1/8tsp onion powder
  • 4ounces cream cheese
  • 1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

First, mix the savory herbs well with the almond flour.  Next, microwave mozzarella and cream cheese together for 30-seconds.  This should be enough time for them to melt enough that they can be stirred together easily.

If needed, you can microwave for an additional 10-seconds.  Add the flour mixture and two-beaten eggs to the cheese mixture and mix well.  Finally, add the cheddar cheese and blend well.
