Red Lobster Biscuits
The current obsession is Red Lobster biscuits. Side note: these are similar to what we would call scones in the UK, but the main difference is the sugar and fat used. Biscuits also tend to be less more savoury and are usually served alongside a meal rather than on their own. For those who have had the joy of eating at Red Lobster (an American restaurant chain) I hopefully shouldn't have to explain why these have become an obsession. For those who have not had the pleasure as yet; Red Lobster serve these biscuits with your meal and, for me anyway, they pretty much steal the limelight from anything else.
I recently stumbled across a couple of recipes for them, and ever since I have been serving them with everything. I'm already planning on making celery soup tonight, pretty much just so I can make these biscuits to go with it (in my defence, I do also have celery and blue cheese that need using up). You may have noticed I served them with the Gammon I made recently- that was totally unnecessary with the amount of food we already had, but I just couldn't help myself! The problem is, they're so quick, easy and cheap to make that I can't even use any of those as reasons to stop myself.
