Take out your package of string cheese and let them open 4 of them. Ok they can snack on a few during the process too. If you haven’t seen these fun versions of cheese yet you can find them in your Walmart dairy case.  Of course you can make pull apart bread with the same Pillsbury rolls but cheesy is easy.

My littlest one had just returned from school where they had a jog a thon. After that she had one for herself she got to unwrapping 4 more to make our easy cheese biscuit recipe together.

  • I have 3 girls so Disney® Frozen String Cheese is quite popular in our house.

They usually don’t last long since each one takes their lunch to school. It’s a perfect addition to their lunch boxes as string cheese gets calcium and protein in them and tastes yummy.  Now cut each piece into fourths and we’re going to stuff our biscuits full of garlic, butter, and cheese!

You could use Rhodes rolls too from frozen. For those you’d need to follow the instructions to allow them to defrost and rise first. It’s one of our favorite frozen bread dough recipes too for sure.

Cheese Rolls with String Cheese

You want to flatten your refrigerated biscuit out with your hands. Then position the 2 pieces of cut string cheese side to side as you see above.

  • Add a bit of your softened butter and garlic mixture inside so it’s stuffed with tons of flavor.
  • Next, press the edges together well so it resembles a half moon or an empanada shape.
  • Make sure the edges are tightly pressed together.
    • You could even put it on your cutting board and use a fork on the edges to ensure they don’t come apart in the baking process.
  • Then brush the melted butter and garlic mixture on top and put a dash of basil on top for a bit more flavor and color.
  • Now they’re ready for the oven!

Now you could use frozen rolls for this instead. It would take more time because you would have to account for the 45 minutes or so to defrost those but it would work the same way. Rhodes has some great ones we always have in our freezer.

You can try this easy roll recipe, they’re great with Instant Pot spaghetti and more. Or if you want to add cheese to another, our Red Lobster cheddar bay biscuit recipe is amazing.
