Ingredients

  • 2 cans 7.5 oz. each refrigerated biscuits OR any bread/biscuit dough cut into 20 pieces
  • 4 oz. Mozzarella cheese cut into 20 cubes OR about 1 teaspoon of shredded cheese
  • 4 tbsp. butter melted
  • ½ tsp. Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Alternatively, use a square 8x8 or 9x9 pan and butter it lightly on the bottom.
  • Separate the biscuits dough and gently push down to enlarge and slightly flatten the dough.
  • Place on cube of cheese (or about 1 teaspoon of shredded cheese) in the center of each biscuit. Add a pinch of Parmesan cheese on top.
  • Carefully wrap the dough around the cheese and pinch with your fingers to seal it shut.
  • Place seam side down about an inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Bake 10 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and the cheese is melted.
  • While the biscuits bake, mix the butter, Italian seasoning and garlic powder together and set aside.
  • Remove the biscuits from the oven and immediately brush with butter mixture.
  • Serve warm.

Notes

What can I use instead of store-bought biscuit dough?
You can make your own biscuit dough (recipe here) or use any fresh or frozen bread dough from the grocery store. Store-bought pizza dough works really well for this recipe also.
Do you thaw frozen biscuits before baking?
Yes, if you're using frozen dough, they will need to be thawed prior to stuffing and baking.
How long can I keep biscuit dough in the fridge?
I always keep a roll of refrigerator biscuits on hand because they last for several weeks in the refrigerator.
Can you save uncooked Pillsbury biscuits?
No, I don't recommend it. These rolls are best if they are cooked right away. The dough begins to deteriorate after opening. They won't taste any different, but they won't rise as well and they will be heavy.
If you're worried about whether or not they will all be eaten, go ahead and cook them first and freeze them. They will freeze well.
When you're ready to reheat them, thaw in the refrigerator then gently reheat on a baking sheet at 350 degrees, uncovered for 6 to 8 minutes.
Variations
I love the combination of gooey, stringy mozzarella cheese with the sharp bite from Parmesan. You can substitute with your cheese of choice! Use pepper jack, colby, sharp cheddar cheese - really any flavor will work will in this recipe.

Tips
  • You can make your own Homemade Italian Seasoning, which personally I love, or use a mix from the store.
  • Using cubed cheese makes like really easy and saves on a lot of messy clean up, however, shredded cheeses will work just fine also.
  • Pinch the rolls shut tightly or the cheese will ooze out and make a mess! Be sure to place them SEAM side down in/on your pan.
  • These are best served warm right out of the oven for the perfect cheesy stretch! You can even add a little extra sprinkle of grated Parmesan to the top if you like.
