Wonderful biscuit with a subtle kick from the red pepper flakes! It's also a great way to use up some Bisquick. I increased the red pepper flakes to 1 tsp. and added and 1/4 tsp. of Italian seasoning. I also used low fat buttermilk instead of milk. I brushed the garlic butter onto the biscuits before and after baking. These baked up beautifully and tasted great!

A little dry..would rather use the buttermilk recipe and just add the cheese, red pepper flakes and garlic to that.

Excellent biscuits. Nice and moist. I accidently added all the garlic powder in the mix so in the end we only brushed on plain butter. Still very yummy. I had about 1/3 cup swiss cheese I had left over from another recipie, so I added that and 2/3 cup cheddar, to make one cup. Very Good. The only thing I would change is the amount of red pepper flakes. I coundn't see or taste them. I would add at least 2 teaspoons (probably more though) My kids (3 and 8 years) had no problem eating them as the recipie stated. I just want a more red pepper flavor.

These biscuits are very easy and good too. I followed the advice of other reviewers and increased the red pepper to a heaping teaspoon, and I'm glad I did as they are not too spicy at all. I also used a mix of mozzarella and cheddar, added a bit more garlic powder, and a teaspoon of Italian seasoning blend. These are very savory and are great with soup or stew. I do recommend adding the Italian seasoning as it really brought out the other flavors. I will use use this again, thanks (:

This is a very good recipe! My husband and I love Red Lobster's biscuits, and these are a great way to have them at home. I have made them according to the recipe, but also tried a variation to go with spaghetti when we didn't have Italian bread. I added Italian seasonings (kept the garlic), and substituted mozzarella for the cheddar. I then used olive oil instead of butter. Yum!

Followed other suggestions and was very generous with the garlic powder and red pepper flakes. YUM!!! Good even after they cool, but best when piping hot from the oven. Thanks for posting!
