Struggling restaurant chain Red Lobster is embracing AI to market its biscuits—which are really easy to make yourself at home. Read on for the recipe.

The chain is reportedly eyeing a possible Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing to restructure its debt. The chain says its bottom line has been hit by expensive leases and high labor costs. Last year the company reported record losses of $11 million—which the CFO blamed on the famous ‘endless shrimp’ promotion. Red Lobster grew from a single restaurant in Lakeland, Florida in 1968 to around 650 locations across the United States.

Its most famous product is served free with a meal—the Cheddar Bay biscuits served in unlimited quantities alongside its seafood fare. Now to drum up more attention and get foot traffic through its doors, Red Lobster has embraced AI to release a special biscuit soundtrack ahead of National Biscuit Day.

To create the songs, Red Lobster says it fed inspiration from fans’ declarations of love for Cheddar Bay Biscuits into an AI generator. (It does not specify which one.) The result is 30 tracks of around one minute each—all dedicated to how tasty Cheddar Bay Biscuits are. I agree—I love them so much I worked hard to learn to make them myself so I’ll share that knowledge with you.

Here’s a peek at how to make some great knock-off cheddar biscuits including everything you’ll need to get started—sans a trip to Red Lobster.


  • 1 Box of Bisquick
  • 2/3 Cup Milk
  • 8 oz. Cheddar Cheese (Sharp)
  • Butter
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste
  • Parsley Flakes

How to Make Cheddar Biscuits Without Going to Red Lobster

  1. Grate your block of cheddar using a cheese grater.
  2. Mix two cups of Bisquick with the 2/3 cup milk and cheddar.
  3. Biscuits will appear rough, but should not be powdery.
  4. Use a spoon to heap the biscuits on your baking pan.
  5. Place in an oven at 425 degrees for 12-13 minutes, until biscuits have golden brown tops.
  6. Microwave butter for around 30-45 seconds in a microwave-safe container.
  7. Add garlic powder and parsley flakes to melted butter concoction, stir.
  8. Once biscuits are finished, remove and baste butter/garlic over top of biscuits. Serve.
