Stuffed Cheesy Bread Rolls

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 recipes, ranging from cheese-filled 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 stuffed cheesy bread recipe is the fastest and easiest of all because there’s no yeast, no kneading, and no waiting for dough to rise.

How, you ask?

I got creative and used a tube of pre-made biscuit dough. Biscuit dough is sold in tubes or cans in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.

I’ve always said I can make a meal out of appetizers, and who needs dinner when you’ve got this as an appetizer? Everyone loves these cheese-stuffed biscuits! They are great for get-togethers and game days parties. Hello Superbowl coming right up.

Or make them to serve alongside an easy weeknight chicken recipe and you’re going to make the whole family smile.

How to Make Stuffed Cheesy Bread Rolls

Simply do the following:

  1. Pop open a can of refrigerated biscuit dough.
  2. Break it into pieces.
  3. Stuff a piece of cheese inside.
  4. And bake for 10 minutes.
  5. While the bread bakes, melt some butter and spike it with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt.
  6. Brush it on generously as soon as the bread emerges from the oven.

Soft, warm, buttery, cheesy, gooey, heavenly!

Can I Use Another Type of Cheese?

Of course! I used mozzarella, but you can use cheddar or diced string cheese segments.

Can I Prep These in Advance?

These stuffed cheesy bread rolls are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven. You may be able to cover them tightly in aluminum foil to trap the heat in if you plan on serving them later, but fresh is best.

Tips for Making Stuffed Cheese Bread Rolls

I use one 16.3-ounce tube Pillsbury Grands Homestyle Butter Tastin’ Biscuits to make this recipe, which contains 8 biscuits.

Use your favorite pre-made biscuit dough of choice.

These stuffed biscuits are easiest to make with cubed cheese rather than shredded. You can buy a block of cheese and cut it into cubes yourself.

You’re welcome to change up the seasonings used in the butter mixture. I prefer the Italian seasoning blend, but biscuits and cheese pair nicely with just about anything.

Prep Time 5 minutes
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

Instructions

    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.
    3. 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.
    4. To a small microwave-safe bowl, add the butter and heat on high power to melt, about 30 to 60 seconds.
    5. Add the Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and stir to combine.
    6. 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 made the cheese bombs and the pizza bombs the other night for game night. They were a BIG hit! Thank you for the recipes.

    1. It would be essentially a dinner roll recipe or something similar to that. You can google for dinner roll recipes that look good to you.

  2. I made these for dinner tonight and they were delicious. Note: I made homemade dough though because I am not crazy about the tube doughs!

  3. I have a question. I made these tonight to go with my chili. They were good, but even after cooking for 10 minutes (and the bottoms almost burnt) there was still a very slight hint of doughiness. Would it help to reduce the temp or put the pan at a higher level in the oven and keep the temp the same? I really love how simple these were but wish mine didn’t have that slight hint of doughiness. Thanks :-)

    1. You could experiment also with other brands of dough – some may give you the results you’re looking for more so than another brand. But yes, I would reduce the temp 25-50 degrees and see how that goes, too. Thanks for trying the recipe.

  4. do u serve this right out of oven. Or can they sit awhile, going to a potluck, but it doesnt start till 6pm, any suggestions.

    1. Fresh is definitely best but you could wrap it tightly in foil and then transport to potluck so the heat stays trapped in.

  5. OMG, the garlic cheese biscuits were all the rave at dinner tonight. Super easy to make and who doesn’t like cheese and bread… Hummers…thanks for the receive.

  6. I just made these, exactly as you described, and they were raw in the middle, around the cheese. I’m using a standard, non-convection oven. I also used a ball of mozzarella and the 16.3oz Grands Southern Homestyle Butter Tastin’ biscuit dough just like you did, but the label on my biscuits says to bake for either 13-17mins at 350, or 19-25mins at 325. Next time I’m going to try that instead, because these were pretty underdone, they got nice and golden outside, but inside it was just wet dough around the cheese.

    1. All ovens, pans, climates, etc.vary and always bake until done, whatever that means given your variables. I think a couple extra minutes probably would have done the trick based on what you described. Thanks for trying the recipe.

    2. Yeah.. I was just worried because they were pretty nicely browned, and I didn’t want to overbake. Thanks :)

  7. 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?

    1. 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.

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

  9. 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!

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

  11. 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!

    1. So glad you guys enjoyed these and yes I can see them disappearing fast at a party! Hope you guys have a nice weekend!

  12. 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!

  13. 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 :) 

    1. You’re the second person who’s mentioned Brazilian bread in the comments…there’s evidently a cheesy Brazilian bread that I do need to try now!

  14. 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!

  15. 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!

  16. 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 .
