How to Serve Red Lobster Biscuits:
These copycat Red Lobster biscuits should always be served hot! They’re so much better that way. Since they are so savory and already contain a lot of butter they don’t need any topping, but feel free to add more butter to your warm biscuit if you want!
These biscuits are also delicious to make into little sandwiches. Some sliced ham and a slice of cheese tastes delicious, but you could also try turkey or roast beef. You can also use the biscuits to make an extra flavorful lobster roll.
They’re also perfect alongside a bowl of soup or even broken up on top of the soup.
