Crab Stuffed Cheddar Bay Biscuits with Lemon Butter

         When you’re in the mood for those scrumptious Cheddary crab filled biscuits, but don’t want to go out anywhere, read this recipe and you can make them at home.

You know me, I am going to do what I can to make this easier to make in any way possible. However, I will not risk any of the flavor. I want to enjoy the biscuits the way they should be.

            Anyone who loves crab cakes is going to love these. You may need to make a double batch. Same as those who are addicted to the Cheddar Bay biscuits.

These are actually quite easy to put together and will not take tons of time. You will still have the cheddar with the crab meat in those soft biscuits.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Should I use frozen crab?

Preferably, if you can find it fresh, it is always best. However, you can use the frozen or buy lump crab in a can if need be.

            Can I try to make my own biscuits?

You certainly can! I just make recipes that are easy and do not take loads of time.

            How do I store these?

These should be placed into a ziplock bag and kept in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. You can freeze them by placing them into freezer safe bags. Be sure to date the bag. They can be kept in the freezer for 2 months.
