The blue cheese biscuit bites are puffy and buttery and have just the right amount of blue cheese. They are delicious and 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!

Blue Cheese Bombs Ingredients

This easy to make blue cheese bombs are just what you need to make a quick and delicious snack or appetizer. It is small enough for finger food but cute for a gathering. With only three ingredients these blue cheese bombs don’t last long!

  • Biscuits – I prefer to use Grands Refrigerated Biscuits from Pillsbury when I make these. I just like the flavor and texture better. They fluff up and make the bombs even better!
  • Butter – Melt the butter to drizzle over top the biscuits giving it that golden color while it is being baked in the oven.
  • Blue cheese – Crumble blue cheese is spread over the biscuits and in between getting every part of the bombs more flavor.

How to Make Blue Cheese Bombs

Grab your three ingredients and start cutting the dough, melt your butter, and sprinkle your cheese over top! These three ingredients burst into the oven into bombs adding all the flavor to each piece of biscuit. It is a yummy and savory snack!

  1. Cut dough – Cut each individual round of biscuit dough into quarters by cutting it in half vertically and then horizontally.
  2. Layer ingredients – Place all biscuit pieces on a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle crumbled blue cheese over the biscuits. Pour melted butter over biscuits and blue cheese.
  3. Bake on a cookie sheet – Bake until biscuits are golden brown, approximately 8 to 11 minutes long.

Suggestions for Blue Cheese Bombs

These bombs are versatile and can be an appetizer, a snack after school, on game night, or just to watch a movie! They are so simple to make and come together quickly, you will want to have the ingredients on hand often. These blue cheese bombs are a family favorite!

  • Party appetizer – 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.
  • Side dish – 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!
  • Dough – Make sure to cut your biscuit dough into small balls that are even with the others. This will help the biscuits to bake evenly in the oven.
  • Cheese – 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.
  • Dipping sauce – We love to dip our bombs in ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing.
  • Buffalo chicken bombs – Add buffalo sauce, and shredded rotisserie chicken, sprinkle blue cheese over top and you have another delicious bomb to try!

Frequently Asked Questions

How blue cheese was invented?

The origin of blue cheese is a story that a drunken cheesemaker who left a half-eaten loaf of bread in a moist cheese cave. He forgot and left. When he came back, he found that the mold covering the bread had transformed into a delicious cheese whose color was blueish green, hence the blue cheese name!

What does blue cheese taste like?

Blue cheese is a very distinct, pungent, salty, and sharp flavor. It tends to have a sweetness to it mixed with the right ingredients. It is semi-soft, crumbly, and creamy in texture.

Are blue cheese crumbles bad for you?

Everything is in moderation! Over consuming blue cheese can add excess calories to your diet. It is high in saturated fat and grams of fat. Combined this does not make blue cheese good or healthy for you. Saturated fat raises cholesterol levels and can increase the risk of heart disease.

Yes! Blue cheese is usually gluten-free. It is always best to be sure to read the ingredients label to double-check. If the ingredients label does not include wheat, barley, rye, or their derivatives the cheese should be safe for you to enjoy!

Can blue cheese be heated?

In this recipe we do heat the blue cheese crumbles however, we are doing it at a slow process in the oven and gradually warming them up. If you overheat or heat too quickly like in a microwave, the crumbles can become oily pools on your food. Heat can also intensify the flavors.

How to Store Blue Cheese Bombs

Store leftover cheese bombs in a Ziplock bag in the refrigerator for up to three days. To reheat, pop a few or a batch in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds or until they’re not and the cheese is nice and gooey.

    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!!!!
