Cheesy Cheese Bombs

How can a recipe ever go wrong when cheese is involved?  Well that's can't.  There's just something about the gooey texture of warm, melted cheese that's incredibly addicting.  And don't even get me started on how wonderful burnt cheese is......yummmmm......burnt cheese...........Ok, ok, I just need a minute to wipe the drool from the corner of my mouth and then I'll continue.

So where was I?  Oh yes....cheese bombs. 

These cheese bombs are super easy to make, especially when you're short on time and looking for a little snack, a good appetizer, or even a meal.  In addition to being easy, cheese bombs don't require a lot of ingredients.  However, you could choose to stuff the bombs with other ingredients, ultimately making them your very own.  Ingredient ideas that I plan to try out one day are: chopped green and red peppers, ham, sausage, etc.  The possibilities really are endless. 

Cheese Bombs
Printer-Friendly Version

1 container Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits
1 package mozzarella cheese, cut into about 2” cubes
Olive oil (for brushing)
Grated Parmesan cheese, for garnish
Oregano/Italian seasoning, for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

While the oven is preheating, pop open the biscuits and flatten them out slightly, on a clean work surface.

Once the biscuit is flattened, place about 2-3 pieces of the cheese onto the center. 
Next, fold the sides of the biscuit up and over the cheese, until completely sealed.  Once the cheese bombs are ready, place them seam side down onto a baking pan.

Brush the tops of the bombs with a little olive oil and sprinkle on the Parmesan cheese, and oregano or Italian seasoning.  They are now ready to bake.
Place the cheese bombs in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until just until they start to turn a nice golden color.  Allow a few minutes to cool and then serve!
