Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

I love biscuits.  Croissants are good, but sometimes I just crave the salty goodness of biscuits.  When I was little, Red Lobster won hands down for biscuits.  I was never crazy about their food, but could be convinced to go there based solely on the biscuits.  I found this recipe while searching online for something to make for breakfast one morning.  I didn't want to go to the grocery store and had no eggs available, so my options for baking were limited.  Luckily, I found this gem.
