  • Marinara sauce for dipping (optional)


Step 1: Preheat Your Oven

Step 3: Add the Cheese

  • Place a cube of mozzarella cheese in the center of each flattened biscuit.

  • Pinch the seams to seal the cheese inside.

Step 4: Make the Garlic Butter

  • In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, minced garlic, and chopped parsley.
  • Mix well to ensure the garlic and parsley are evenly distributed.

Step 5: Coat the Cheese Bombs

  • Dip each cheese-filled biscuit into the garlic butter mixture, ensuring it is well-coated.
  • Place the coated biscuits on the prepared baking sheet, seam side down.

Step 6: Bake

  • Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the top of each biscuit.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Step 7: Serve

  • Remove the cheese bombs from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
  • For an extra touch, you can garnish them with a bit more fresh parsley.
  • Serve warm with marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
