I am a sweet person, but you knew that from my baking blog didn’t you? But I am also, a CHEESE person. Camembert, Double Cream Brie, English Cheddar.. oh god cheese is so good. Nothing beats coming home after a long day and having some delicious cheese on crackers, buttered crackers of course. Have you ever tried the Extraordinary Cheddar from Trader Joe’s? It’s a blend of Parmesan and White Cheddar!! I mean really though how amazing!!! Seriously at my house we go through blocks on blocks of that cheese. IF you have never tried it go to TJ’s NOW!!
I also love cheesey bread. You do too. Who doesn’t? Crazy people!! So it was natural for me to adore this bread. Cheesy Garlic Monkey Bread Bites. Perfection. Popable Perfection. Perfect for a Party. I’ll stop with the “p’s” now.
These are so easy to make. Start with Pillsbury biscuits cut them into thirds, flatten to discs, add cheesey mixture and extra cheese of course, pinch together then roll in butter and sprinkle with more cheese and if you are feeling frisky add some pepperoni inside! Bake till golden brown and devour. You could totally make these like pizza bites and have a marinara sauce to dip but I just enjoyed the cheeeeeesy bread
2 Cans Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits (5 biscuits each)
2 cups Mozzarella Cheese
2 cups Italian Blend Cheese (Parmesan, Asiago)
1/2 cup butter, melted
In a bowl of an electric mixer beat cream cheese for two minutes and add in garlic and basil. Mix until fully combined then fold in cheese. Set bowl aside.
In a medium bowl mix mozzarella and italian cheese blend.
Preheat oven to 350F and grease a mini muffin pan.
Cut biscuits into thirds.Flatten each third of biscuit into a disc shape. Using a 1/2 tsp spoon scoop a dollop of cream cheese mixture onto disc, press cream cheese part of biscuit into the bowl of cheese. Then pinch the dough closed and roll ball to completely enclose. Repeat with all discs.
Place melted butter in a bowl. Place dough ball quickly in butter then place in prepared muffin tin, one ball to one muffin slot. Sprinkle more cheese on if desired.
Bake 16-19 minutes, until golden brown. Some balls will open up showing the gooey cheese, this is normal. Let cool for 5 minutes then devour!
