    I like those for biscuits, too, assuming you're talking about Bisquik.
    I keep the mix around to make up a quick batch of cheesy biscuits ala
    Red Lobster. Wow, I want some now and no Bisquik in my cabinet.

    Both of those sound really good!

    I've gotten big bags of pancake mix at Costco and Sam's Club but don't
    remember what brand they were. My guess is that they're pretty much the
    same as Bisquick.

    We went to the Red Lobster the other day. It was the first time I've
    ever been there - it was so-so. The cheesy biscuits was the best thing
    there. It's a drop biscuit made with oil. I've been planning to make
    cheesy biscuits too. First I gotta figure out what would go good with
    these things. Fried chicken but not hamburger. :-)

    I've got 2 biscuits left from last night.<g> They're on the table
    in a baggie-- Damn they are good. [and about as simple as life can
    get] I don't even melt the butter anymore. I use butter
    flavored oil & garlic and onion powder.

    Let's see if Cheryl and I use the same recipe. This was off the box
    of Bisquick from many years ago;
    [preheat oven to 450F]
    2 cups Bisquick
    3/4 cup cheddar cheese [I eyeball it- and go high]
    2/3 cup milk

    mix with a spoon as little as possible.
    Drop 9-10 spoonfuls on a cookie sheet.
    Bake at 450 for 10 minutes-
    paint with garlic butter while hot.
    [I use about 1/4 cup of liquid with 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp
    onion powder]


    I don't remember ever going to Red Lobster- but folks who do say these
    are just like theirs.

    I hate pancakes, rarely make waffles (they have to have a fried crisp
    texture) but love French Toast.

    I use Mrs Buttersworth Sugar Free syrup (tried many s-f syrups and that
    one is the thickest richest tasting to me.) I love to add chopped pecans
    to the syrup.

    Take 3 pancakes, add 1/4 cup syrup, and you are looking at 80+ net
    carbs.

    Take 3 slices light italian bread, make french toast, add 1/4 cup s-f
    syrup, and you have ~25 net carbs.

    ps in a pinch I dont mind the occasional Eggo-fry it in butter instead
    of toasting :-)

    Cheryl, here's a great recipe for Bisquick substitute. Now you'll
    always have some on hand.

    So I wake up this morning and what is on the table but a take-out bag
    of Red Lobster biscuits. Side by side comparison- [my 2 day old
    vs RL overnight]
    outside looks- no difference
    compare texture- no different
    compare flavor- Red lobster isn't as buttery- and I don't taste any
    garlic. I think the cheese is about the same- I used a good sharp
    cheddar, shredded.

    I can't believe how close they are- but I like mine better.

    I've gone to RL for lunch a few times and the wait staff will give us a
    whole bag of them to take with us. Amazing how a few cents worth of
    food like that will make a bunch of women happy and giddy! LOL
