Sriracha-Cheddar Biscuits

Sriracha Cheddar Biscuits | Bake Your Day

Are you a fan of the Cheddar Bay Biscuits at Red Lobster?  If so, I’d like to introduce you to their slightly spicier cousin: the Sriracha-cheddar biscuit!

I don’t really care for Red Lobster all that much, but give me a basket of those biscuits any day and I’ll be as happy as can be.  I like bread and cheese and garlic, especially when they are all wrapped up in one!  This biscuit recipe is so simple.  I used some self-rising flour from King Arthur Flour.  The flour already has salt and baking powder so no need to add them here.  I can’t wait to try some sweets with it!

I made these  biscuits to use as “buns” for my black bean burgers and they were a perfect fit!  Not too spicy, but full of flavor from the cheese, garlic powder and the Sriracha!

Sriracha-Cheddar Biscuits Recipe

Yield: 18 biscuits

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

A simple cheese biscuit recipe, kicked up with Sriracha hot sauce.

Ingredients:

2/3 cup milk
1 Tbs. Sriracha sauce
2 cups self-rising flour
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 cup butter, cut into cubes, kept in the fridge until ready to use
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
For brushing the biscuits:
1 Tbs. milk
1 tsp. Sriracha

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with Silpat liners or parchment paper. Set aside.

Mix the milk and Sriracha sauce until well blended. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Whisk the flour, cayenne pepper and garlic powder in a large bowl. Add the cold butter and work with a pastry blender or two forks until the mixture resembles wet sand. Pour in the milk/Sriracha mixture and stir just until the milk is absorbed. Mix in the cheese, careful not to overmix.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 1-2 minutes until the dough is no longer sticky, using a little more flour as needed. Roll into a circle about 1/2-inch thick.

Cut the biscuits to the desired shape and place on a Silpat-lined or parchment-lined baking sheet. In a small bowl, mix the extra milk and Sriracha together until blended. Brush the tops of each biscuit with the mixture.

Bake in the prepared oven for 14-15 minutes, until the edges are golden brown.

Cassie's Notes:
If you don't have cheddar, feel free to use any kind of cheese that you have on hand.

    I’m loving sriracha week. The biscuits, oh my, I can only imagine how much better they’re made with a kick of the rooster sauce.

    I’m such a sucker for those biscuits too but I haven’t been to red lobster in quite some time so I haven’t had a chance to eat them! So glad I can recreate these at home though – and of course you have my most favorite ingredient – Sriracha! :)

    You know I never use self-rising flour; just the K.A. in the red bag, their all-purpose. I need to check it out! I love those Red Lobster biscuits…ahhh, memories!

    Jen @ Savory Simple — September 11, 2012 @ 6:18 pm

    Oh man, I saw these on Pinterest earlier ans have been looking forward to the recipe! I’m with you on Red Lobster. Back in my college stoner days (pre-foodie) I was all about that place and the biscuits. Now, I just miss the biscuits! So buttery, so delicious. I am definitely making these soon.

    Baking Serendipity — September 11, 2012 @ 8:07 pm

    I have to admit, I’m usually not big on spicy foods, but these biscuits look amazing! And, I love the thought of using them as bean burger buns. Genius :)

    Cheesy biscuits are the only reason I venture into Red Lobster. I order chicken every time:-) I think it’s about time I tried a homemade version…I love that you added a spicy kick to them!!!

    Roxana | Roxana's Home Baking — September 12, 2012 @ 12:44 pm

    I love cheesy biscuits, well anything that slightly resembles cheese and bread and your spicy version is very tempting Cassie

    Nami | Just One Cookbook — September 12, 2012 @ 3:29 pm

    I love King Arthur flour but never seen their self rising flour in the supermarket shelf. As I’m not a baker, I’m not sure when to use “self-rising” flour, but the only difference is just added salt and baking powder?

    Brenda @ a farmgirl's dabbles — September 12, 2012 @ 9:41 pm

    Who doesn’t love those Red Lobster biscuits?!?!?! And these sound even better!

  45. #
    Erin @ Texanerin Baking — September 13, 2012 @ 6:43 am

    I’m a supporter of all cheese biscuits! Never been to Red Lobster though. I’d love to go and just eat these biscuits I read so much about. But I’m sure these are way better. :)

    Miss @ Miss in the Kitchen — September 13, 2012 @ 10:36 pm

    I love the idea of spicing up cheddar biscuits!

  47. #
    Chrissy — September 17, 2012 @ 2:13 pm

    Such a great idea! I’ll have to try that next time I’m making some normal old biscuits! I can’t get enough spice in my life!

    Natalie — September 17, 2012 @ 2:38 pm

    Cassie you kind of just blew my mind. My grandma always makes her biscuits with self-rising flour… but adding sriracha is genius! (I’m a recent rooster sauce convert.) And using biscuits as burger buns?! L.O.V.E.
