Crab Cake Stuffed Cheddar Bay Biscuits


  • 1 box (22.72 ounces) Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit mix
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (preferably cheddar)
  • 3 cans (6 ounces each) lump crab meat, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Adobo seasoning
  •  1-1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 15 Ritz crackers, crushed
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone pad.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the biscuit mix, water, minced garlic, Italian seasoning and shredded cheese, and mix well. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the crab meat, paprika, Adobo seasoning, mustard, mayonnaise and crushed crackers, stirring until well mixed.
  4. Shape the crab mix into about 6-8 patties that are about 2 inches in diameter.
  5. In a large frying pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
  6. Carefully place the crab patties into the oil and cook about 3-4 minutes on each side (until golden brown). Don’t overcrowd and cook in batches if needed.
  7. Remove the patties and place on a plate lined with paper towels to dry, and repeat the process with any remaining patties.
  8. Once the crab cakes have cooled slightly, place 6-8 dollops (equaling roughly half) of biscuit mix a few inches apart on the prepared baking sheet and spread until slightly larger than the crab cakes.
  9. Place the crab cakes on top of the biscuit mix; you may have extra crab cakes that can be saved for later or eaten as is.
  10. Cover each of the crab cakes with a thin layer of the remaining biscuit mix so that they are sealed inside (use your fingers if necessary).
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until set and the tops are golden brown.
  12. Combine the melted butter with the garlic herb blend pouch that came with the biscuit mix, and brush the tops of the stuffed biscuits before serving.
  13. Serve warm with a salad or steamed vegetables.

These delicious stuffed biscuits were inspired by a recipe from Happy Homeschool Nest, which can be found here.
