Once upon a time, if someone had offered me $1,000,000 with the one condition being that I had to give up cheese, I probably would have chosen cheese. I’m slowly weeding dairy out of my diet, but that doesn’t mean I have to deprive readers of a bomb recipe
One of my favorites has always been the cheddar bay biscuits from Red Lobster. For anyone that shops at BJs Wholesale, you’ll know that they sell a boxed version of these little devils that you can make at home.
Truly, it’s like purchasing a heart attack; a delicious one, but a heart attack all the same. After checking out the ingredients on the back, I thought I could definitely recreate these in my whole wheat style. I vowed, however, not to skimp on the butter because although I am pro health, I am no Mother Theresa.
I have to say, I love my whole wheat version and I think you will too! There is all the same buttery, cheesy goodness that we’ve come to love. With all of the added fiber and protein from the wheat, I don’t feel nearly as bad about it. As a little FYI, for the butter glaze that you brush on top of the biscuits, I actually used melted Smart Balance butter and thought it was delicious!
I hope you enjoy as much as I did! 🙂
