I added a little bit of garlic powder and just did the drop biscuits and they turned out great. Easy - peasy.

Some Old Bay seasoning, say 1/2 tsp or so, added to this will go a long way toward duplicating Red Lobster's offerings. Or, mix some Old Bay with a little melted butter and brush the tops of the hot biscuits just out of the oven.

This is a lot like the biscuits they serve at Red Lobster. Just add 2-4 tablespoons of chopped pickled jalapenos and it's theirs! You can drop these rather than rolling them out and cutting them. It's a heck of a lot easier and faster too!
