It’s impossible to resist these buttery, ooey-gooey Garlic Cheese Stuffed Rolls! Montchevre Honey Goat Cheese, parmesan and mozzarella are stuffed into fluffy dough and coated in salty, creamy butter to make dinner roll perfection!
Disclosure: I partnered with Montchevre Goat Cheese for this recipe post, but all opinions expressed here are my own. I am grateful for authentic partnerships like this.
If there is one thing I truly can’t resist, it’s bread. Hand over a basket of warm, freshly baked and soon-to-be-heavily-buttered bread, and I’m one happy mama. During the holidays and on special occasions, I dedicate a bit of extra time to make my Big Mama’s homemade dinner rolls but, y’all, that takes time. When I’m hankering for a fluffy, pillowy bite of baked dough, I don’t always want to spend hours nursing flour, yeast and milk. Sometimes a girl needs something simple.
So today, when I was struck with a craving I couldn’t ignore, I decided to pull together one of my favorite recipes: Garlic Cheese Stuffed Rolls. Made with store-bought crescent roll dough and a creamy cheese filling, these garlicky, sweet rolls couldn’t be easier to make!
Tonight, this Grandbaby is having soft, chewy and plenty-cheesy dinner rolls. Don’t you wanna join me?

Here’s what’s going down today:
- Montchevre Honey Goat Cheese– tangy and unique, honey goat cheese adds creamy texture and a subtle sweetness.
- Mozzarella– mild and sweet, mozzarella doesn’t overpower these rolls. They also make for that glorious cheese pull just like in amazing Mozzarella Sticks,
- Parmesan Cheese– what’s garlic bread without salty, nutty parmesan?
- Basil– this pungent herb is fresh, sweet and peppery which cuts through the heavy cheese. It’s just the right *pop* of flavor.
- Garlic Powder & Salt– they go together like peanut butter and jelly y’all! Just a couple pinches and you’re on your way to well-seasoned bread.
- Crescent Rolls– these are an incredible option for saving time while still getting delicious results! If preferred, they can easily be substituted with your favorite homemade dinner roll recipe.
- Salted Butter– I prefer my garlic bread/cheesy rolls to be a bit on the saltier side. Unsalted butter works too.
- Minced Garlic– be sure to mince very finely!
- Mixed Herbs– a great opportunity to use up any leftover herbs you’ve got. Any herb will introduce aroma and brightness to the rolls.
How to Make Cheese Stuffed Rolls
Leftover Storage and Reheating
This garlic cheese stuffed rolls recipe doesn’t need to be refrigerated, doing so will only cause the bread to go soggy or stale (or an odd mixture of both). Instead, just keep any leftover rolls in an air-tight bag or container (at room temperature). Just be sure to keep an eye out for any moldy cheese.
To reheat garlic cheese stuffed rolls:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, wrap each leftover roll in a single sheet of aluminum foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until warmed through.
