Cheddar and Garlic Biscuit

The cheddar bay biscuits at red lobster are the main reason we frequent the place plus an over dose of shrimps and lobsters of course. It is  also the reason why I have always wanted to get a hold of the recipe for cheddar bay biscuits.  This would be the time when you tell me "in your dreams my friend, in your dreams". Ok I get it.  No international restaurant will just freely give out their much guarded recipe.  Of course not. I know that the owners' paid a lot for the development of each of the recipes that they're offering.

There's a world wide web to look for a biscuit similar to that of the cheddar bay biscuit of red lobster.  I saw plenty that claim their recipes tasted the same as that of red lobster's cheddar bay biscuit.  

Anyway, here is my cheddar and garlic biscuit.  It is not a copy cat of the cheddar bay biscuit of red lobster.  The taste doesn't even come close. But the Husband said it is more cheesy and tasty than it is.  And since I did not add any old bay seasoning I cannot name it as cheddar bay biscuit. Here's my cheesy biscuit
