Cheddar Rosemary Biscuits
These Cheddar Rosemary Biscuits are soft, flaky, and bursting with flavor. The fresh cheddar cheese and rosemary gives these biscuits the perfect amount of zest. And best of all, it’s ready in less than 20 minutes!
Whenever I think of Thanksgiving food, my mind immediately goes to turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and rolls. You have to have some kind of good bread or dinner rolls to soak up all of that gravy, right?
And while I love traditional dinner rolls (especially those Hawaiian rolls), it’s always a nice change when there are biscuits, pretzel rolls, or scones made with herbs and spices. It just makes dinner time that much more delicious when there are some zesty rolls around, and I think you would agree.
For example, Red Lobster. Now, I can’t even remember the last time I set foot in that place, though I do remember their cheddar biscuits quite well. Hot, fresh, and oozing with flavor. You just can’t beat, even if you don’t enjoy seafood.
These Cheddar Rosemary Biscuits are even better than Red Lobster’s, and not just because I made them! These biscuits are soft, flaky, and bursting with flavor. The fresh cheddar cheese and rosemary gives these biscuits the perfect amount of zest. And best of all, it’s ready in less than 20 minutes!
Yep, you read that right. In less than 20 minutes, you can have these Cheddar Rosemary Biscuits, prepped, baked, and ready to be devoured. And that’s definitely a winner in my book.
My inspiration for these came from Southern Christmas magazine from 2013. I was amazed at the simple ingredients and minimal prep time, so I just had to give these a try. I’m so glad that I did because these are my new favorite biscuits for when I want a fast and easy side dish.
These Cheddar Rosemary Biscuits are also perfect for your holiday (or any day) gatherings because of the delicious taste and soft texture. Once you bite into these, the hints of cheddar and rosemary will wow your taste buds. These biscuits are tender, flaky, and oozing with flavor. And did I mention that they’re ready in less than 20 minutes? If you’re hosting Thanksgiving or another holiday gathering, these babies will definitely save you some time in the kitchen.
So the next time you’re hosting a party, holiday, or weekday dinner, give these Cheddar Rosemary biscuits a try! Fast, easy, and practically fail-proof, these will be your new favorite biscuits!

I am right there with you on those Hawaiian rolls – they are addictive! – but I think these selectable cheddar rosemary beauties look even better! Great flavor combo!
Thanks for the kind words, Kate!
I pretty much want to sit around and eat these for my meal and nothing else. Well, a glass of wine. Perfect dinner!
Wine and biscuits would make the perfect meal, Mir! I like your thinking! 🙂
Sounds good to me. I am making these right now with beef stew. Gonna brush melted garlic butter on top when they come out of the oven. Already had 2 glasses of red wine. Lol. Hey I did not want to throw out the wine. I used one cup in the beef stew. It smells so good in here. Lol
Hope you love these, Cathy! Enjoy!
oh my gawd, these biscuits!!!! LOVE! and love the cheddar + rosemary combo!!!! must bake these!
These are SO good, Alice!
I would happily eat these by themselves without anything else for dinner haha.
I can’t believe that they are ready in just 20 minutes too. I love it!
20 minutes to perfect, Dannii! 🙂 Thanks!
I love how we’re both on the same rosemary kick right now, Gayle! I’m an absolute SUCKER for warm homemade biscuits so my self-control would definitely not stand a chance around these babies! They look so cheesy, golden, and perfect!
Aren’t homemade biscuits the best? Thanks for the kind words, Sarah!
These are my favorite biscuits! Thanks for stopping by!
Morning! They sound and look absolutely amazing; I really can’t wait to whip these up – forget death by chocolate; it’s definitely a biscuit death for me…!
I agree with you…biscuit death with cheese sounds a lot better! 🙂 I hope you love these just as much as I do!
Homemade biscuits are one of my favorite ways to make a meal special in a short amount of time. This version sounds incredible, Gayle!
I love making them too, because they look like they took a long time, when really they didn’t! 🙂 Thanks for the biscuit love, Blair!
Ohhh these look so good! I have pretty good self control with sweets but savory, cheesy things like this I REALLY have to work to stop myself! These look great!
Haha me too, Annie! I just wanted to devour the entire batch of these biscuits!
These look so wonderful! I love a good biscuit.
Thank you, Kelly!
Love cheddar and rosemary! Perfect for Thanksgiving! Dinner will not be complete without these! Pinning 🙂
Oh, you can bet I’ll be giving these a try! Loving the cheddar and rosemary combination! Pinned!
Oh my goodness! LOVE! These look absolutely to die for. I can’t wait to try them! Pinned :).
They’re SO good, Annie! Thanks!
Homemade cheese biscuits are the best. What a great idea for Thanksgiving!
Thanks for the kind words and for stopping by!
These look perfect, Gayle! I love the rosemary cheddar combo in these! Soft warm biscuits are my weakness so these would be gone in a flash at our dinner table!
oh yum! only 20 minutes you say? I need to make these!
You’d love them, Manali!
These look amazing! I’m such a fan of the savory quality rosemary imparts when paired with bread 🙂
I LOVE carbs and I especially love those cheddar rolls from Red Lobster. Love that you made a copy cat recipe. I can’t believe they only take 20 minutes! Which means we will be having Hawaiian Rolls and THESE on our Thanksgiving table! 😉
Thanks, Mariah! Carbs and cheese definitely make the perfect combo! 🙂
Oh man, these look fantastic and I love biscuits. I’m not a prophetess, but I have a strong feeling that I will make these soon.
Thanks, Aria! I hope you love these if you try them!
I’m sure I will 🙂
These look great Gayle… love that you went with rosemary on these and they look soo tender! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the kind words, Amber!
Where can I get the tin that you served the biscuits in.
Hi Lama! I bought this tin at Sur La Table over the summer. I’m not sure if they still carry it, but you could check their website to find out. Hope you enjoy!
Rosemary and cheddar go together like peanut butter and jelly. I love plain biscuits, but to throw in two kinds of sharp cheddar and some rosemary, self-control would be out the window. These biscuits truly look amazing, Gayle.
Thank you for the kind words, Neeli! I agree, plain biscuits are amazing, but every once in a while, it’s nice to spice it up! 🙂
I LOVE homemade bread, and these biscuits look so amazing with the cheese and rosemary! I can’t remember the biscuits at Red Lobster, but I would definitely remember these! What a great side these would be for Thanksgiving. 🙂
Thanks, Marcie! These biscuits are definitely flavorful with the spices and cheese!
These turned out really tasty (and as a cheddar-lover I know what I’m saying!). Thank you for posting this recipe 🙂
I’m so glad you liked these biscuits! They’re a favorite of mine, too. Thank you for stopping by!
Just made these! Super easy. Though i used fresh rosemary since that was what I had at hand. Put them in for 10 minutes and mine came out absolutely burnt. Sadness 🙁 It smells heavenly! Can’t wait to give it a try!
Hi Veronica! I’m so sorry your biscuits burned! I’ve never had that problem when making these. Maybe watch your oven temp and time if you try these again. Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know how these turned out!
