Pizza night just got even more fun! Garlic cheese bombs are the perfect side dish for pizza and pasta.
Here’s a tasty and super easy side dish for pizza night, spaghetti night, or pretty much every night! Garlic rolls are stuffed full of mozzarella cheese and baked to golden yumminess. **Make sure you don’t under bake these cheese bombs. A nice golden brown is what you want.**
Garlic Cheese Bombs
Servings: 24 rolls
- 24 frozen Rhodes dinner rolls
- 1 lb. mozzarella cheese brick
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 Tbsp dried parsley
- 1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese optional
- Place 24 Rhodes frozen dinner rolls onto a cookie sheet or other clean surface. Cover with plastic wrap and let thaw for about 2 1/2 hours, or until soft and no longer frozen.
- Cut 24 cubes of mozzarella cheese. Cut them as small or large as you'd like, depending on cheesiness preference.
- Place butter in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cover and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, or until melted. Add garlic powder, dried parsley, and Parmesan cheese.
- Flatten each thawed roll and wrap completely around a cube of cheese so you can't see it. Stack the rolls in a greased bundt pan and brush with garlic butter. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise for another 30 minutes.
- Remove wrap and bake at 350°F for 35-40 minutes, or until dark golden brown. Cover with foil last 15 minutes of baking. Do not under bake or the rolls with be doughy.
- When it's time to serve, either invert the pan and slide the bombs out onto a plate, or pull them directly out of the pan individually without flipping. Serve with pizza sauce or marinara sauce.

Oh my! These look fantastic. I can not wait to try this!
Thanks, Erica! I had to cut myself off so I wouldn’t eat too many. haha
THEY LOOK SO GOOD IM ABOUT TO MAKE THOR DINER HOPE THEYARE HARD TO STOP EATING LIKE YOU HAD TO DO
Awesome! I hope you love them! Just make sure to bake them long enough. A nice golden brown color, even darker than what you see in my picture, is what you need. My were just a tad under done.
Is their a certain size bundt pan and does it absolutely have to be a bundt pan?
I used a 9-inch bundt pan, but you can really use any size and just put however many rolls you can fit. I better other pans would work! I’ve baked rolls in a 9×13 pan before so they would probably just come out more like the shape of a dinner roll. Great questions!

I found the recipe. i just was having no fun sending to friend. I emailed to her. Thanks, bet she makes them tomorrow.
The link that you have on here gives another garlic cheese bomb recipe with 8 rolls d cheese strings? How do I get 24 garlic cheese bomb recipe with full block of cheese?
Hi Arlene. If you buy a small brick of mozzarella cheese you can cut it into 24 cubes. However, I’m not sure what the recipe is with 8 rolls and cheese strings that you’re referring to. The link in red on the word “here” will take you to the full cheese bombs recipe on the Rhodes Kids Blog. I hope that helps!
Hi, I never found where the garlic butter recipe is. Is it just that? Butter and Garlic salt/ powder??
Hi Tanya! The garlic butter ingredients are listed right under the rolls and cheese in the recipe. Thanks!
Yes, I saw that after I posted :/ Sorry.. LOL.. But i DID make these and they were a hit with my family! Thanks for the recipe 🙂
Can I make my own roll dough?. We live far out, and if I don’t have Rhodes on hand I still want to make them. Like right now cuz I’m drooling
Hi Laurie! Yes, you can definitely make your own dough. That sounds delicious!
Made these with 1 difference. I roasted 8 unpeeled garlic cloves wrapped in foil, 1 hr at 350, till soft. Peeled and mashed into the melted butter. I also used smoked mozzarella cheese. Grateful for the recipe. Thank you!
Kim, this sounds wonderful! Thanks so much for sharing. I’m so glad you like the recipe! I can’t wait to try them this way.
Can i use any dinner roll?? and im not familiar with rhodes is the already made or is that like in a can like pillsbury
Rhodes rolls are frozen dinner rolls that will be thawed in this case. You can definitely substitute for another dough!
Would pizza dough work? I would love to try these but I’m not familiar with Rhodes and I don’t think I can find any here in the place I live.
Hi Ayesha! Yes, pizza dough would definitely work. Any bread dough would be fantastic!
