Searching for the elusive Crab Butter...

Can you tell where we ate dinner the other night? Of course you can, we all love these Cheddar Bay Biscuits from Red Lobster. Whenever they run an ad on tv, my mouth starts watering and I start planning our next visit!

I had their new Chesapeake Shrimp with Crab Butter, it had wood grilled shrimp on skewers drizzled with a chunky crab infused butter and was served with roasted new potatoes and a great fresh corn and red pepper side. Oh, I was a happy camper! So, I've been searching for a "copycat" recipe online. No luck with far...but I did find a great site with the Internet's largest recipe index called

If you are a Foodie like me, you are always searching for new recipes. I can't buy every cookbook I want, I'd need another room added if I did this! I was thrilled to see they have a huge collection of recipes from my favorite chefs...Martha Stewart, Emeril Lagasse, Jamie Oliver, Bobby Flay, Rachael Ray, Alton Brown, Ina Garten, Mario Batali and Wolfgang Puck.

Look what I found...a bumped up Cheddar Bay Biscuit! This may just have to satisfy my crab cravings until I can find their recipe for Chesapeake Shrimp with Crab Butter!

Red Lobster Cheddar Crab Bake

This is similar to the cheddar garlic bisquicks at Red Lobster but have the additional crab.

Preheat oven to 450.
Combine bisquick, 1 cup cheddar, milk, and 1/2 of melted butter.
Mix until well combined.
Pat dough into 8 inch pizza shape.
Sprinkle with parsley (crushed fine).
Sprinkle crab over dough and add remaining cheese.
Bake 14-16 minutes (or until cheese begins to slightly brown).
Combine butter and garlic powder and brush on top.
