The cheesy little biscuits that come with your meal at the country's largest seafood chain were first served in 1990 as a part of each entree. According to a company spokesperson, it's the single item that the chain has now become best know for. It's estimated that in 1997 the chain served over 435 million of these puppies.

Since each of those small biscuits has around 7 grams of fat, we're going to make this recipe unique. I'm going to show you to make a delicious light version of this popular treat which tastes just as good as the original. The key is using reduced-fat Bisquick, as well as reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese. This is an easy recipe to make, and these biscuits are scrumptious.

Nutrition Facts

Serving size--1 Biscuit
Total servings--12
Calories per serving--112 / Original--130
Fat per serving--3 g / Original--7 g

2 cups reduced-fat Bisquick baking mix
3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk ( 1 percent fat)
1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons Fleischmann's Fat-Free Buttery Spread
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes, crushed fine

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2. Combine the baking mix, milk, and cheddar cheese in a medium bowl. Mix by hand until well combined.

3. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions (about 3 tablespoon each) and spoon onto a lightly greased or nonstick cookie sheet. Flatten each biscuit a bit with your fingers.

4. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to brown.

5. In a small bowl, combine the buttery spread with the garlic powder. Heat this mixture for 30 seconds in the microwave, then brush a light coating over the top of each biscuit immediately after removing them for the oven. Sprinkle a dash of parsley over the top of each biscuit.

Makes 12 biscuits.

To make fine parsley flakes, as can be found on the original, simply crush the flakes between your thumb and forefinger.

I tweaked this a little more. I added the garlic powder to the bisquick mixture and eliminated the butter spread and parsley at the end. Made delicious breakfast biscuits.
