Meet the babies of the all-time popular Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread. Your new favorite party appetizer and snack.
EASY GARLIC CHEESE BOMBS
How can you ever say no to a warm, garlic butter roll filled with gooey cheese? I always say I can never give up cheese, bread and chocolate. I can take a break from it, but it would be really hard to give it up entirely. We are huge fans of appetizers and game day food and it seems like all of them are bread and cheese related. Needless to say, these babies are here to stay! And we already have more plans for them! 🙂
How to make Garlic Cheese Bombs?
Can things get any easier than opening a can of biscuits (BTW! Do you freak out when it pops? I totally do!!), placing a square piece of mozzarella and pinching the seams. For this recipe, I used about 3 oz. of the cheese, cubed into ¾" pieces. You may have some leftover. You need 10 pieces for 10 biscuits. Then they are ready for a little garlic Ranch butter brush and off to the oven they go for 14 minutes. They are best served while still warm and dipped in marinara sauce. Woah!
Tips for making the best Cheese Bombs:
- You may know by now, that Ranch seasoning mix is my secret ingredient in a lot of dishes. I used it in my Cheesy Garlic Bread, my Spinach Dip Cheesy Bread, Spinach Dip Chicken Pasta and others. It's fantastic!
- For cheese, I use mozzarella that I buy in a brick. I am using buttermilk biscuits, regular size (not jumbo). I buy mine at ALDI.
- You can use fresh garlic for stronger garlic flavor or store bought minced for more mellow flavor.
How to Serve Garlic Cheese Bombs?
I highly recommend serving marinara sauce along side of the cheese bombs. If you don't have any, simply mix crushed tomatoes with 1 packet of Ranch seasoning mix. You may have to add some salt and pepper. Bam! Easy-peasy!

People who post questions about "biscuit dough" from foreign countries are confused about the term "biscuit", which means different things to different people. I think the closest substitution for them would be bread dough. We all love Pillsbury because the taste and texture is like homemade bread, more than what we know as biscuits.

I love love love these! I have shared this recipe with many of my friends. I have been using the Grands biscuits (cut in half) with deli style mozzerella mini balls. They are so delicious! Thank you so much for this recipe!
Help! I’m English! Is ‘biscuit dough’ scone mix here? Have never seen it ready made ANYWHERE! Would an unbaked pizza base dough work? Are we aiming for ‘bready’ or ‘sconey’ With the bombs? Also, what herbs and spices would be in ranch mix? I may have to do that from scratch.
Hi Vanessa! You definitely want them on the "bready" side. Pizza dough will work best. Ranch mix has buttermilk powder, dried parsley, dill and chives, garlic and onion powders and of course salt and pepper. There is a lot of recipes online for a homemade version. I hope this helps! Let me know!
Do you use salted or unsalted mozzarella cheese ?
Also where do I find garlic ranch butter ?
Hi there! I am dying to try these! What temperature should I put these in the oven? Also do I grease the pan before? I’m going to try and make these for my grandparents Christmas Eve! Thanks 😄
Hi Hailey! That is so sweet of you to make these for your grandparents! I love that! The temperature is 400 degrees F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. All of the steps are in the recipe box. Just click the "jump to recipe" button. I hope this helps! Happy Holidays!
What do you have to put the oven at?
Hi Tora! It's 400 degrees F.
Hi can I make these in advance and then just bake them the day of the event?
Hi Jillian! I am afraid the biscuit dough will dry out. I recommend making them the same day you will serve them. I hope this helps!
These are disgraceful, immoral, and I am sure somewhere illegal! To hide the evidence EVERYONE ate every single one on the plate. Then asked for more! What a pleasure to make and serve! The kids went wild for them. (and they hate everything) 5 stars on this one. Will be making again, and again. Barb Karr
Hahaha! BEST COMMENT EVER! 😀 Thank you, Barbara! I am so happy to know you and your family love the cheese bombs. Have a beautiful day! -Anna
Hello i was wondering as i am i Australia what is biscuit dough or do i make my own from scratch
Hi Tammy! If you can't find the biscuit dough, you can certainly make one from scratch. They will be yummy!

White Wings makes the biscuits in a can product - located in the refrigerator section of all supermarkets - it’s the same as the Pillsbury product in the US,.
Thank you, Maggie! This is so helpful!
Hi! I would love to try these out, but I don't know where I would get buiscits in a can. We don't have tose here in Croatia. Do you know a recipe to make them from scratch?
I would try searching up a homemade biscuit recipe on Pinterest. That's what I do for literally everything I wanna try my hand at that I don't already have a recipe for! 🙂

Dobro dan, Martina. I think you should make a nice soft bread dough and take a pinch about 2 inches big. Flatten it into a disc, then put cheese on top, pinch ends tight to enclose cheese and proceed to shape gently into a ball. Proceed with baking directions. -
The cheese bombs are amazing! AND, I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who dreads opening the dough cannisters because of that darned pop that makes me jump every single time!
Haha! Right? It's like I know it's coming yet it will still scare me! lol Thank you for the comment and trying the recipe, Jill! Have a beautiful day! 😀
These garlic herb cheese bombs are the bomb. Period. It took me 10 minutes to prep, 10 minutes to bake, and in 20 minutes, these cheesy bombs were out of the oven and ready to be served. How sweet is that?
Oh my, my carb cravings are out of control right now and I just want to dig right in and eat every single one.
So cheesy! I love it! Great idea about adding ranch powder!
You know the way to my heart. I could eat these for breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Oh my gosh. They're so cheesy! Cheesy carbs are my favorite food group. 😀 I would totally go to town on these!
Love everything about these delights! Especially the Ranch butter -- yum!! Marinara -- excellent idea 🙂
I am DYING to try these! Perfection.
Oh my goodness! These look so cheesy and delicious! Great recipe!
