Garlic Cheddar Biscuits are the perfect side to any meal from spaghetti to fried chicken. As much as I love a good biscuit, adding cheese and garlic takes these from regular ol’  biscuits into crazy good garlic cheese bombs, a side that will truly be the star of your meal!

Biscuits are a staple around here, perfect for breakfast with jam and delicious with butter served with soup or stew.

As much as I love a good sweet biscuit drizzled with honey and butter… these cheesy cheddar biscuits definitely take the cake.

A light and flaky biscuit crust stuffed with… you guessed it, cheddar cheese and rolled in a buttery garlic topping.  The result is the ultimate cheese buns!  My kids call these garlic cheese bombs because they’re really just an explosion of deliciousness…  and cheese.

They are small enough to serve as an appetizer but they also are PERFECT served alongside any meal!

Holding a Garlic Cheddar Biscuit

If you happen to have any leftover, the kids will love taking them for lunch!  There are lots of versions of cheese biscuits out there…  this is definitely my favorite! Tender crust, and ooey gooey cheese filling and a delicious garlic parmesan topping, these are the ultimate garlic cheese bombs!

While I use canned biscuits to make this extra quick, you can certainly wrap the cheese in a Homemade Biscuit Dough with equally wonderful results.

When making these biscuits, you’re going to want to work quickly so your dough stays fairly chilled and ensure you pinch the seams very well to seal.  If some of the cheese happens to leak out, don’t worry… there will still be more inside and they’ll still taste amazing!!  I bake them on parchment paper for easy clean up.

Speaking of biscuits, I am somewhat addicted to wrapping things in biscuit dough!  They are always amazing and you can pretty much put anything in them from sweet to savory!
Stuffed BISCUITS are one of my favorite snacks and the possibilities are endless! Check out some of these other yummy stuffed biscuits:

  • Bacon Cheeseburger Bombs (reader favorite!) Soft biscuits stuffed with cheese, bacon and the most delicious beef filling you have ever had!
  • Cheddar Meatball Poppers Juicy meatballs and cheddar cheese wrapped in a soft biscuit crust.
  • Loaded Mashed Potato Bombs It’s like a stuffed baked potato wrapped, filled with cheese and wrapped in a delicious hand held bite.
  • Pizza Bombs Soft crust, pepperoni and your favorite pizza toppings loaded with cheese all wrapped in a biscuit crust.
  • Cinnamon Caramel Apple Pie Roll Ups Roll ups of the dessert kind with cinnamon, apples and a hint of caramel.  The perfect ending to any meal!

Really… the possibilities are endless!  I’ve stuffed them with chicken pot pie filling, taco meat, cream cheese and pie filling and so much more!

  1. I think these little biscuits would go fast at our house so I’ll have to make doubles. I can’t wait to give them a try. I’ll have to add to my groceries list.5 stars

  2. I’m pretty sure this will be a hit! I am so excited to make this! Looks really really good. Thank you so much for sharing this.5 stars

  3. Absolutely delicious!!! An easy appetizer or side to whip up with little mess, no planning and few ingredients. My husband likes to invite friends over randomly to work on home projects or just hangout but he never thinks about feeding them. Now I keep some cheese and a can of biscuits in my fridge on the regular for a “rainy day”5 stars

  4. Your recipes look amazing…CAn’t wait to start cooking and baking…running out of room in my little freezer though…lol..Happy Easter….

    1. Freezer room is definitely the struggle! Enjoy your cooking and baking!! Happy Easter Leanne!

  5. Your garlic cheddar biscuits make my mouth watering! After finishing them and freezing, which way is suitable for reheating them? Using oven or microwave?

    1. I have not tried re-heating these, however I would think to use the microwave. Let me know how it works if you do try it.

      1. Hi Maureen, we haven’t tried freezing them but I would bake them, let them cool completely, and then pop them in the freezer to store. They should last a few months in the freezer! Let us know how they turn out.

  6. I want to make these for a work pot luck. Can I prepare them at night, put them in the fridge, and bake them in the morning?

  7. I made these tonight and they were a hit! I used shredded cheese inside because that’s all I had. I will be making them again! Next time I will probably make the biscuit dough from scratch. Thanks for a great recipe!
