Easy Cheese Bomb Bread

There’s nothing better than diving into soft, warm, buttery bread fresh from the oven.

Except when it’s stuffed with cheese. Cheese trumps all.

I’ve made lots of bread ranging from cheese-filled Easy Cheddar Sourdough Bread to fuss-free dinner rolls like No-Knead Make-Ahead Dinner Rolls with Honey Butter. There are one-hour recipes including Soft Buttery One Hour Pretzels and One-Hour Soft Buttery Breadsticks.

But this recipe is the fastest and easiest of all because there’s no yeast, no kneading, and no waiting for dough to rise.

Simply pop open a can of refrigerated biscuit dough, break it into pieces, stuff a piece of cheese inside, and bake for 10 minutes. I used mozzarella but you can use cheddar or diced string cheese segments. Biscuit dough is sold in tubes or cans in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.

While the bread bakes, melt some butter and spike it with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt. Brush it on generously as soon as the bread emerges from the oven. Soft, warm, buttery, cheesy, gooey, heavenly.

I’ve always said I can make a meal out of appetizers and who needs dinner when you’ve got this as an appetizer.

Easy Cheese Bomb Bread

There's nothing better than diving into soft, warm, buttery bread fresh from the oven except when it's stuffed with cheese. This recipe is the fastest and easiest bread recipe because there's no yeast, no kneading, and no waiting for dough to rise. Open a can of refrigerated biscuit dough, break it into pieces, stuff a piece of cheese inside, and bake. I used mozzarella but you can use cheddar or diced string cheese. While the bread bakes, melt some butter and spike it with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt. Brush it on generously as soon as the bread emerges from the oven. Soft, warm, buttery, cheesy, gooey, heavenly.

Yield: 8 rolls

Prep Time: 5 mintues

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 tube (about 16 ounces) refrigerated biscuit dough (I used one 16.3-ounce tube Pillsbury Grands Homestyle Butter Tastin' Biscuits which contains 8 biscuits)
  • 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, cut into eight 1-inch square cubes  (cheddar cheese or diced string cheese may be substituted)
  • 4 tablespoons (half of 1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley, optional for garnishing

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat or with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Separate biscuits and put 1 cheese cube into the center of each biscuit, wrap the dough around the cheese, seal, and place on baking sheet with the seam side down. Repeat until all dough and cheese is used. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until very lightly golden browned; watch them closely in the last minutes of baking because they can go from un-done to over-done in less than a minute. While biscuits bake, prepare the butter mixture.
  3. To a small microwave-safe bowl, add the butter and heat on high power to melt, about 30 to 60 seconds.
  4. Add the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and stir to combine. As soon as biscuits emerge from oven, generously brush each one with the butter mixture, optionally garnish with parsley, and serve immediately. Biscuits are best warm and fresh.

  1. I have always liked the texture of biscuits so adding cheese is just a huge bonus. I always hear raves about the garlic cheese biscuits at a couple of different chain restaurants but yours look even better! I know Jon would love these .

  2. Cheese DEFINITELY does trump ALL. Especially when it’s stuffed inside soft bites of carby-delicious perfection.
    Is it weird that I want this bomb bread for breakfast?! I’m going with it. Pinned!

  3. I ABSOLUTELY LOVEEEEEEEE!!!!!! 

  4. Such a genius idea to use the grands!! Oh my, this is so easy it’s dangerous!

  5. As much as I love homemade stuff, I am completely fine taking the short way and use some delicious, butter Pillsbury dough, that stuff is a classic, that is so versatile and so many delicious things can be made with it, I love the ocean of cheese you have going on here, buttery, cheesy, what else can I ask for?! Maybe one of your crazy good cocktails on the side, yes please!

  6. These look so amazing! I agree, who needs dinner when you have appetizers!

  7. These look super delicious! I dated a brazillian guy in college and these look just like a cheesy bread that his mom used to make all the time!

  8. This would make me a hero with my kids …

  9. Hi ! This looks absolutely amazing !!! Recently I tried a brazilian recipe of pan de quejo, I did not know I could also make some approaching recipe with mozzarella, I will try it over the weekend.
    Thank you so much for the recipe :) 

  10. I’m having houseguests this weekend & will definitely make these. They look delicious!

  11. I can imagine that these would be great when served with some simple marinara. Yum!!!

  12. Could these be made with leftover/extra pizza dough? 

  13. Seriously, is there anything better than cheese and bread? Okay, well maybe peanut butter and chocolate, but cheese and bread come in at a close second! :) These look wonderful, Averie, and I love that they’re so easy to make! Thanks for the recipe!

  14. Jon came home from work early and was ready to eat….he grilled, I baked these and we were happy in no time. I think a cheese stuffed biscuit is just a crazy good idea and we both adored them! The Italian seasoned butter is the perfect finishing touch. These would make great party food too!

  15. Averie, this looks craaaaaazy delicious. I could eat bread and cheese all the time :P

  16. Did you cut up fresh buffalo mozzarella for these? 

  17. These look even better than that cheesy bread they put out at the Red Lobster – we usually eat two or three servings during a visit. I would love to make something even better at home!

  18. Made these for a family party yesterday and they were a hit! Gone in less than 5 minutes.  These were delicious.

  19. I’m thinking of making these ahead and then serving them at a Super Bowl party. What do you recommend for reheating options? Or should they only be served right when they come out of the oven?

    • It’s one of those things that really it’s best warm and fresh. Nothing beats fresh hot bread right! I would just make them as close to the party as you can. If they’re not piping hot they’ll still be good but aim for warm and fresh is my suggestion.
