Let me just say that I love Alfredo sauce and the creamier, the better. I have tried making about a hundred different Alfredo recipes. I figured the hardest and most difficult recipe had to be the best, right? Wrong! This recipe is so simple and quick, but you wouldn't know it based on taste. I will probably never eat Alfredo out of a jar again. This stuff is rich, creamy, and cheap to make. In fact, I actually found this recipe trying to find something to make with the few ingredients I had in my refrigerator. The best part is that this recipe is limitless. You can add different ingredients to change it up any way you'd like. I have added jalapenos and Sriracha sauce to kick it up a bit! And let's be honest here - Red Lobster biscuits are impossible not to love. If you don't enjoy Red Lobster biscuits, you don't have a soul. Yes, I said it.
Ladies, with the men you can't go wrong here. I am giving you a simple, quick and cheap dinner option that males assume took all day to perfect. Their bellies will approve and your brownie points will increase. If you are wanting a home cooked meal on a limited time frame, this is the meal for you. I promise people will lick their fingers clean after tasting these biscuits (I have seen it). Ryan can't get enough of them.
Creamy Alfredo Sauce
8 ounces dry pasta
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (can use shredded cheese as well)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 pinch ground nutmeg
Flavored sausage (optional, I used an italian sausage for added flavor)
Now for my favorite part....
If you don't eat Alfredo sauce, at least make these biscuits. Seriously, do your mouth a favor and make them! I could sit and eat an entire batch by myself, no lie. Granted my back-side would grow about 3 sizes, but you get my point. They take maybe 10 minutes to make, and they are best served right out of the oven.
Red Lobster Biscuits
2 cups buttermilk biscuit mix (Bisquick)
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic powder (I use more)
2/3 cup milk
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix together biscuit mix, cheese and garlic powder. Add in milk, and stir until well mixed. (Heads up – the dough will get very sticky!)
With a spoon or with your fingers, shape the dough into biscuit-sized clumps, and drop onto the baking sheet. Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until biscuits begin to brown slightly around the edges.
While the biscuits bake, prepare the warm butter mixture by mixing together the melted butter, oregano and garlic salt in a small bowl. As soon as the biscuits are removed from the oven, brush the biscuits (while they are still on the baking sheet) with the mixture until they are well-coated. Serve warm.
