Before my friend Howard and I wrkoed together at a restaurant in Maryland, he had managed a Red Lobster. He knew how to make these biscuits, and used to make them for the staff, who gobbled them up. His ingredients and procedure almost exactly matched yours, although he did use parsley and not oregano, but I don't think that's awfully important it's mostly the cheese, butter,and garlic. Howard never added any ranch dressing mix, but I guess there's no harm in that it is tasty stuff.For those of you who can't get Bisquick or Jiffy mix or whatever, here's a DIY version. No offense to the good people at Bisquick or Jiffy or whatever, but it's just as good, and cheaper.5 1/2 cups sifted flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 3 tablespoons baking powder 1 cup vegetable shortening 1 tablespoon powdered sugarMix it all together until it looks kind of crumbly, and keep it in a sealed container. It'll hold for quite a while months, at least.
