Cheese Stuffed Biscuit Bombs

Flaky biscuits are stuffed with cheddar and baked until golden brown on top—and soft and gooey in the middle. Brush the tops with an herb butter and pull apart a cheesy biscuit and dunk it in marinara for an instant smile.

Cheese-stuffed biscuit bombs are a great appetizer or side dish. They’re quick and easy to make, with only 5 ingredients. Plus, they’re a crowd-pleaser. Let’s face it: everyone loves cheesy carbs. 

For the holidays: Imagine dragging these biscuits across your Thanksgiving plate of mashed potatoes and gravy… 

On a game day: Serve them up with marinara, alfredo sauce, or store-bought pesto. Or all of the above, because why limit the flavor?  

Cheese-stuffed biscuit bombs could even make an appearance at breakfast. Sunny side up eggs, anyone?

Cheese Stuffed Biscuit Bombs

Cheese Stuffed Biscuit Bombs

A biscuit stuffed with a cube of cheese and basted in butter…what’s not to love about this recipe haha! I love how simple this recipe is (only a handful of ingredients), how fun it is to make and eat and just how darn comforting and tasty it is. Cheese Stuffed Biscuit Bombs are the perfect side dish for any occasion!

Raw biscuits and cubes of cheese.

5 Simple Ingredients

Biscuits

Grab a tube of pre-made biscuits from the refrigerator section of the grocery store. I love the buttermilk ones!

Cheese

Use a block of cheddar cheese to cut into cubes…or just grab a bag of pre-cubed cheese to make things even easier. I love using cheddar for these biscuits, but you could also use other types of cheese, like mozzarella or pepper jack. 

Butter

Butter makes everything better. These cheese-stuffed biscuit bombs are brushed with an herb butter after coming out of the oven. Extra indulgence! 

Thyme

Fresh is delicious! But let’s be honest…we’re going for ease here. I’d recommend dried thyme to speed things up.

3 Simple Step Recipe

1

Prep the biscuits.

Remove the biscuits from their tubes and gently divide each one in half. Place a cube of cheddar in the center of each dough piece. Then pinch the biscuit dough to completely enclose the cheese, and roll it into a ball. Place your cheese-filled biscuits in a baking dish.

Dish tip: These cheesy biscuit bombs are best served warm in whatever dish they are baked in. Use a 3-quart baking dish, a 9×9 baking pan, an oversized pie pan or an oven-safe skillet such as a cast iron skillet.

2

Bake.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, until biscuits are golden brown and fluffy. 

Bomb diggity.

3

Coat with herb butter.

In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and thyme. Generously brush the tops of all the baked biscuits with herb butter.

Tips and Dips

^

Serve Warm

Serve the cheese-filled biscuit bombs warm and gooey. 

^

Prep Ahead

If you want to make these in advance, stuff, roll and prepare the biscuits all the way up before baking. Store the raw, prepared biscuits in the refrigerator for up to two days in advance on a sheet pan in the refrigerator. The day you want to bake them, transfer the biscuits to their baking dish, bake accordingly and top with the melted butter.

Dunk 'em

You can’t go wrong with dipping sauce. Make these appetizers even more irresistible with marinara, alfredo sauce, or pesto.

Cheese-stuffed biscuit bombs are a great appetizer or side dish. They’re quick and easy to make, with only 5 ingredients. Plus, they’re a crowd-pleaser. Let’s face it: everyone loves cheesy carbs.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 tube of pre-made biscuits (8 biscuits, roughly 16 ounces)
  • 6 oz cheddar cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Remove the biscuits from the tube and gently pull each one in half to create two biscuits out of one. 
  2. Place a cube of the cheddar cheese in the center of each biscuit half, pinch the edges of the biscuit to completely enclose the piece of cheese and then gently roll in between your hands to create a ball. 16 biscuit bombs should be created. Place the prepared biscuit into a lightly greased 9×9 baking pan, oversized pie pan or cast iron skillet. Repeat until all the biscuits have been stuffed and rolled. 
  3. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown and fluffy. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and thyme. Brush the tops of all the baked biscuits with the herb butter. 
  4. Serve as a side dish to a holiday meal, or dunk into some marinara sauce for the ultimate appetizer!

    These were so easy and yummy. I made them in a cast-iron skillet. The cheese did run out of the biscuit so next time I make them I might turn them over and have the seam at the top. That said, the cheese that ran out was so yummy in that cast-iron skillet. I’ll definitely make them again!
