Look at those little hands with half-manicured nails… she lurrrrves my cheese bombs. On the other hand, my big hands love ’em even more.

HEY, you guys! *waving* How goes it? Things are great out here. My kids don’t want to go back home. We’re still in Macedonia, rockin’, and my kids have decided that we need to move here. I think it has something to do with this beautiful country and our super awesome family. AND the fact that both, mom and dad, are not at work.

And let’s not talk about the food. OHemgee… my treadmill will be certainly surprised to see all of us. I’m going to insist on strapping myself to it and just run for daaaaaays.

I know what you’re thinking… blah blah blah, you’re having a good time, but give us the low down on these cheese bombs, NOW!

Besides, I can’t be the only one that gets excited about them.

Years ago, I made these for ya and then you all loved ’em and I decided to bring them back to life.

I’ll tell you what – You will never want to eat a plain “biscuit” again. Especially the store-bought ones. I buy them occasionally, but I always find better use for ’em. Like these Jelly Donut Holes. They are amaaaaaze!

This time around I was strapped for time and we had some friends coming over with their kids.

What to do…what to do…

It was a moment of Chopped; I opened up my fridge and to the left was a tube of ready-to-bake biscuits. On the top shelf of the fridge was a plastic container filled with my favorite – a Caprese salad mixture without the dressing. I’m always Caprese-ready. We talked about my obsession when I posted my recipe for Caprese Bread Pudding.

So, after a few eliminations, I decided to grab those biscuits and fill ’em with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. How can you go wrong with that combo?! The verdict, all around, was very, very positive. Truly, these caprese cheese bombs are one flavorful, soft, delicious (large) bite.

Need I tell you that my Chopped moment was a winner? Probably not. 😉

  2. Katie S.

    I just made these for a cozy fall picnic and they were a huge hit! They were really easy and fun to make. Everyone loved them, and they were perfect for a picnic as they are utensil free!

  3. Loved how you turned your ingredients on hand into this delightful pizza roll. 🙂 I love ready to use biscuit dough! I have some in my fridge right now. 🙂

  4. Nikki

    Hi there, this looks amazing!!
    What would you suggest to use if you don’t have access to ready-to-bake biscuits? We don’t have those where I live (South Africa)

      1. Nikki

        I could try refrigerated dough… but even that is tough to get around here. I’m always searching for a tried and tested bread roll recipe! I would love it if you could link me to one/send me one.
        thanks so much!
        Love this blog

        1. Thanks, Nikki! 🙂

          I am going to give you a link to my friend Roxana’s recipe for THE BEST dinner rolls. I have made these numerous of times and they are beyond fantastic! I am also going to give you a link to one of my dough recipes that can also be used for rolls.

          Let me know when you make the rolls! 🙂

  5. Oh my word. These look incredible! So gooey and soft just like cheese rolls should be. 🙂 I live in Germany where we don’t have ready to bake biscuits (or biscuits at all!) but if we did, I’d so be in trouble right now. Cheese and carbs. It’s my dream food. 🙂

  6. Kate, your photos are stunning. (I know I always say that, but they really are!)
    This looks so tasty.
    One question–I see mozzarella sticks but I read shredded mozzarella. Did you shred the sticks or are they just more photogenic thank a pile of shredded mozzarella? I’d think that a few bits of fresh mozzarella would taste fine but probably ooze all over the place.

    1. Hi, Kirsten!! Happy Sunday, my friend!
      Thank you for all your compliments, always… I truly do appreciate them.

      When it was time to make these for the blog, I didn’t have shredded mozzarella on hand, so I went to the kid’s stash and shredded some mozza sticks! hehe 🙂
