Blue Cheese Bombs

A good friend of mine brought these Blue Cheese Bombs to a party several years ago and was kind enough to give out the recipe. The blue cheese biscuit bites are puffy and buttery and have just the right amount of blue cheese. They are delicious served right from the oven. They are quite addicting and because they are bite-size it is impossible to eat just one. I’m not even a huge fan of blue cheese and yet I could not stop eating these! The delicate cheese flavor is not overpowering and it is complemented by the flavor of the buttery biscuits. And since it’s only three ingredients, they’re super easy to throw together, making it a fun recipe for the kids!

Suggestions for Blue Cheese Bombs

  • These little buttery blue cheese biscuit bites are such a quick and easy appetizer! I throw them together for a holiday gathering, a potluck, a family party or even a late night snack.
  • They also make a delicious side to soups or salad supper. More fun than just popping open a can of biscuits and it doesn’t take much longer than that to make these!
  • If you have picky eaters who won’t eat blue cheese (or picky adults for that matter) they can also be made with shredded cheddar, Gorgonzola, Monterrey Jack, Pepper Jack, mozzarella, just about any kind of cheese you like. I prefer sharp cheddar for the best flavor.
  • Store leftover cheese bombs in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator for up to three days. To reheat, pop a few in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds or until they’re not and cheese is nice and gooey.
  • I prefer to use Grands Refrigerated Biscuits from Pillsbury when I make these. I just like the flavor and texture better. Plus if you’re saving box tops for your kiddos you can cut out and save them from this packaging. No this isn’t a sponsored post, but I have been a PTA member and obsessive collector of box tops for years and have to put in my two cents (actually 10 cents).

    These are one of the sweetest memories I have as a kid around the Holidays. Grandpa Paul made these by the truckloads…I would stand at the stove while he made them and wait for them to come out of the oven. Gobble gobble, he’d give me the sideway glance and tell me to save for others… “I can’t Grandpa their tooooo yummy!!” Every Holiday I would ask him if he was making these, I must have been a good girl every year, cause there they were:)
    I remember he would massage the butter and cheese into the biscuit dough before baking. Sweet memories to you all

  2. please! refrigerated biscuits? Don’t go so low. it’s too easy to make fresh buttermilk biscuits. your grandmother should have taught you!

    1. Hi Tea- You can definitely make it with fresh biscuits if you would prefer. We do have recipes for fresh biscuits and they are delicious. You are free to use whatever biscuit dough you would like for this recipe, fresh or refrigerated.

    2. Thanks for your 2 cents worth, but a lot of us like convenience of canned biscuits. I hate the mess of making biscuits. Flour everywhere, and more dishes (bowl, pastry cutter, rolling pin, biscuit cutter, etc. This is an easy recipe especially when having a big party. FYI: They dont have to be homeade to be good!!!!

    Wow, this sounds incredibly delicious! I have 1 tube of Grands Buttermilk Biscuits in the fridge, and also a wedge of Gorgonzola. I’ll make half of this recipe tonight, so that we can enjoy it with our Sunday evening dinner. Love it, and it couldn’t be any easier!
