We all know, if you visit a Red Lobster, the meal just isn't complete without a basket of their cheesy, garlic, buttery biscuits. Now you can make them in your air fryer!
Air Fryer Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits are so fast and easy to make, they are going to be on our table at almost every meal.
Copycat Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits in the Air Fryer
Going to Red Lobster seafood restaurants when I was younger, was always a treat, and we would usually go for special occasions. I don't remember when they add these golden biscuits to their menu, but now when we sit down to dine-in, I am SO happy when they place them on our table.
But, if you have never been to a Red Lobster, or tried these biscuits, now is your chance, because these Copycat biscuits taste as close to the real thing as you are going to get. Every bite is full of cheese and garlic!
Imagine taking a bite of biscuit, filled with cheddar cheese, garlic, and then a slathering of butter and garlic on top. Just writing this is making me drool for more! Once you taste these biscuits, you will be making them all the time!
Because these air fryer biscuits are SUPER easy to make, we love to have them with dinners. Also, they only take five minutes to cook in the air fryer.
We have made these biscuits using our Dash Compact Air Fryer. Because this little guy is a 2 quart, I could easily fit five biscuits at a time to cook.
However, my family also has the Cosori air fryer 5.8 quart size. The larger air fryer is great for family meals, but both of the air fryers are used equally in our home.
Similarly, the dash is perfect for just one or two people, but when the kids are around, the larger basket does the same job, allowing us to cook the entire batch at once.
What you need to make Copycat Red Lobster Biscuits in the Air Fryer
- baking powder
- cream of tartar
- garlic powder
- shredded cheddar cheese
- garlic clove
- garlic powder
- Optional: dried parsley
First, grab a large bowl and stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, cream of tartar, sugar and garlic powder. Next, add in the softened butter and stir with a fork until it is a flaky dough. Finally, stir in the shredded cheese and the milk, until it forms into a dough.
After the dough is made, scoop drops of the dough and put them in the basket. Be sure to lightly brush the basket with olive oil first. Cook at 400 degrees Fahrenheit in a smaller basket for 5 minutes. The large basket has more biscuits to cook, so add two or three more minutes of cooking time.
Once the biscuits have finished cooking, melt together the butter with garlic, garlic powder and parsley, and brush on the tops of the cooked biscuits. Now put them on the table, and watch them disappear!

Can I use an alternative flour ?
Hi Britanny. I have not tried alternative flour for this recipe, but if using almond flour, use 1 1/2 cups instead of 2 cups of all purpose flour. Let me know if you try them.
Could I use baking powder instead of cream of tartar?
You can substitute baking powder for cream of tartar. Just use a 1 1/2 tsp to replace 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar.
I made a half recipe in my Ninja Foodie air fry oven for my husband and I - 7 biscuits. It took 8 minutes in total to cook them and they were great. I'll be making these again soon 'cause we loved them!
Do you use the air fryer or bake setting?
I always use the air fry setting.
