Cheesy Garlic Bombs

Mini garlic bread bites slathered in buttery goodness and stuffed with melted mozzarella cheesiness. So good and irresistible!

Garlic bread with mozzarella stuffed right in.

It’s pretty epic.

And when you use refrigerated biscuits, this pretty much comes together in just 6 minutes, 22 seconds.

It’s just that easy.

Not to mention that these are baked in a mini muffin pan, helping it keep its shape and it’s cute mini size, which makes them even more irresistible.

Just be sure to eat them when they’re hotttttt. That’s when they’re best.

And then keep a hidden stash as your midnight snack. You can just nuke it for 10 seconds to get that cheesiness going again.

Cheesy Garlic Bombs

Yield: 16 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Mini garlic bread bites slathered in buttery goodness and stuffed with melted mozzarella cheesiness. So good and irresistible!


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (16-ounce) tube refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 48 fresh mozzarella pearls, drained*
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a 24-cup mini muffin tin or coat with nonstick spray.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together butter, garlic, oregano, basil and salt; set aside.
  3. Halve each of the 8 biscuits, making 16 pieces. Working one at a time, use a rolling pin to flatten each piece to about 1/4-inch thickness. Add 3 mozzarella pearls to the center of each biscuit piece before rolling into a ball.
  4. Place into the prepared muffin tin and brush each ball with half of the butter mixture; sprinkle with Parmesan. Place into oven and bake until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately, brushed with remaining butter mixture and garnished with parsley, if desired.

*Cubed string cheese sticks can be substituted.

Wow! These look dangerously addicting!

These are AMAZING! We live at a higher altitude so had to cook a bit longer than the reccomendation, but the results were super yummy. Making the one pot zucchini and mushroom pasta for the main dish. Love your blog.

Hope you like Maine Chungah, because you are coming with me on vacation!… Well, at least some of your recipes. Going on family vacation next month and I offered to do the cooking. I’ll be taking/making some of you recipes and this one just got added. Thanks so much!

best yet. loved them. will love them again and again. [email protected]

I love your recipes! I’m a novice cook, feeling a bit discouraged and your recipes are just what i needed to jump back in and keep trying. I’ve had great results. Thank you! I especially appreciate your recipes for dog treats.

I made these for my book club meeting today and they were a HUGE hit and super easy (even for a novice cook like me). Thanks for the recipe.

These bombs are DA BOMB! haha, I crack myself up sometimes! Pinning!

Can I regular muffin pan be used or does it have to be mini?

Yes, a regular muffin pan can be used.

I made these last night, soooo good!! Wouldn’t change a thing about them, it was flavorful and very simple! I have loved every recipes I have tried on here!

In the picture I only see 2 mozzarella balls per bread but the recipe calls for 3 balls per bread. Which one is correct then? Thank you

You can use 2 or 3 – it’s up to you!

I love this idea but unfortunately where i stay, we do not get these biscuits. is there anything else i could make which would substitute the biscuits? preferably eggless.

Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot advise an appropriate substitute that will not alter the overall taste/texture of the dish. Using a substitution may also result in a mediocre outcome but if substitutions must be made, please use your best judgment.

Finally got around to trying these this weekend. They were beyond delicious! Thanks for another great recipe. I LOVE your blog!

Made de bombs for thanksgiving not a crumb left.thinking of serving next time with some sauce

I’m making these for a work Christmas party and I’m putting them in my crock pot to warm up. Hopefully they will still be the Boom. im using a block of mozzarella cut into small cubes. I don’t have any Parmesan but I’m sure they will still be great.

We do not have the buttermilk biscuits in SA. What substitute can be used.

Janine, here is a great forum discussing possible substitutes – hope that helps!

These look delicious!! I was just in search of recipes like this that could be used in a donut hole pan, this might just work. I think I will leave the parm sprinkles off until I take them out of the oven. Then just roll them in it. Can’t wait to try them.

Wow! Fantastic idea! Since my daughter is home for Spring Break, I just made these as a late night snack for her & one of her girl friends. I made half the recipe & just measured by sight as opposed to the actual recipe. Easy & great as a future appetizer! If you like Italian Seasoning & have that on hand, it could take the place of the dried herbs. I also used the individually packed mozzarella sticks and cut them into pieces. Apparently any biscuit will do because I didn’t use Grands. Lol

Rene’ Glad you posted this, because I can’t find the mozzarella balls around here. Can they be frozen and re-heated like cheese sticks?

Unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself – there were no leftovers left to freeze! Please use your best judgment for freezing and reheating.

Can these be assembled, refrigatored, and cook later in day?
