Cheddar Bay Biscuits are a popular item on the menu at Red Lobster.
The biscuits are made with cheddar cheese, butter, and herbs and are perfectly light and flaky.
Unfortunately, leftover cheddar bay biscuits tend to be dry and unappetizing after being refrigerated.
But don’t throw them away just yet!
With the right technique, reheating your cheddar bay biscuits can bring them back to life.
How to Reheat Cheddar Bay Biscuits in a Conventional Oven
Reheating your cheddar bay biscuits in a conventional oven is one of the best ways to achieve that perfect crispy exterior while maintaining their soft and fluffy interior.
- Preheat your oven to 350°F.
- Wrap each biscuit tightly in aluminum foil.
- Place the wrapped biscuits on a baking sheet and allow them to reheat in the oven for 10-12 minutes.
- Carefully remove the aluminum foil from each biscuit before serving.
How to Reheat Cheddar Bay Biscuits in the Microwave
Microwaving your cheddar bay biscuits is quick and easy but may result in soggier or chewier results than other reheating methods.
- Place one or two biscuits on a microwave-safe plate.
- Cover with a damp paper towel.
- Heat for 15-second intervals until warm (usually about 30 seconds all together).
- Remove from microwave using an oven mitt or potholder, as the plate may be hot.
How to Reheat Cheddar Bay Biscuits in a Skillet
Reheating your leftover cheddar bay biscuits on the stovetop can add some extra crunchiness that makes them taste like they just came out of the oven.
- Preheat a skillet over medium heat.
- Add butter or oil to the pan.
- Place your biscuits in the skillet and cook on each side for 1-2 minutes until golden brown.
- Remove from skillet using tongs and serve immediately.
How to Reheat Cheddar Bay Biscuits by Searing
Searing is a technique commonly used with meat or fish, but it can also be used to reheat leftover cheddar bay biscuits.
- Preheat a heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat until hot.
- Brush each biscuit with melted butter on one side only
- Place the biscuits butter-side down in the hot skillet and cook for about 30 seconds until lightly browned.
- Flip over, butter-side up, and continue cooking until warm throughout; about another 30 seconds.
How to Reheat Cheddar Bay Biscuits in an Air Fryer
An air fryer can give your cheddar bay biscuits that same crispy texture as if they were freshly baked.
- Preheat your air fryer to 350°F.
- Place your biscuits in the fryer basket and allow them to cook for 3-5 minutes until heated through.
- Remove from the air fryer basket using tongs or an oven mitt as they may be hot.
How to Reheat Cheddar Bay Biscuits Using a Toaster Oven
Toaster ovens are convenient appliances that can be used instead of a full-size oven when reheating small portions like leftover cheddar bay biscuits.
- Preheat your toaster oven to 350°F
- Place your leftovers on a wire rack inside a baking sheet(optional). Make sure there is plenty of room around each piece so they don’t touch each other while cooking, since this could result in uneven heating or steaming instead of crisping!
- Bake them for about five minutes (or longer if necessary depending on how much was left).
- Check them frequently to ensure they don’t burn!
How to Reheat Cheddar Bay Biscuits in a Broiler
If you want crispy and golden biscuits, use the broiler.
- Preheat your broiler to high.
- Place your biscuits on a baking sheet or ovenproof dish.
- Broil for 1-2 minutes until golden in color.
- Remove from broiler using tongs or an oven mitt as they may be hot.
How to Reheat Cheddar Bay Biscuits in a Slow Cooker
A slow cooker is perfect for large batches of cheddar bay biscuits since it helps maintain their moisture while reheating.
- Preheat your slow cooker on low heat.
- Place the leftover biscuits on foil paper or plastic wrap, then tightly seal them up to prevent moisture from getting in and making the biscuits soggy!
- Put these wrapped-up biscuits into the heating container of your slow cooker as well as some water at the bottom (you’ll want about an inch of water). The water will create steam that will keep the cookies moist!
- By this point, your cheddar bay biscuits should have warmed up thoroughly (at least two hours later). You can now remove them from their foil or plastic wrapping and serve!
Is It Safe To Reheat Cheddar Bay Biscuits?
Yes! As long as you store them properly and reheat them before eating, leftover cheddar bay biscuits are safe to eat – just like any other dish! Remember not to leave any leftovers out for more than two hours, because bacteria can grow at room temperature.
