Easy Stuffed Cheesy Bread:

This stuffed cheesy bread recipe is very easy to make.  For a lot of recipes, you have to make the bread from scratch. They requires all sorts of crazy ingredients (yeast, flour, cornmeal, warm water, etc) and you have to mix them together until they are smooth and elastic

Then you have to let the dough sit in a large bowl forever to get it to rise probably.  Homemade dough and bread can be complicated to make.

Thanks to General Mills Pillsbury Crescents, I can still enjoy stuffed cheesy bread but in only 15 minutes.  I promise, once you try this recipe, you’ll never go back to the complicated way again!

Ingredients to Make Cheese Stuffed Bread:

You only need 4 ingredients to make this recipe.  It’s easy to throw together and my kids love helping me this as well!

  • General Mills® Pillsbury Crescents®
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Italian Season
  • Handful of parmesan cheese

I bet you already have most of these in your pantry or in your refrigerator.  Ok, now that you have everything you need to make this recipe, let’s continue to learn how to create this stuffed cheesy bread recipe.

Ingredients needed - crescent rolls, mozzarella cheese, italian seasoning, parmesan cheese

How to Make Cheesy Bread Recipe:

  • Step 1 – Prepare Oven – First preheat then oven to 375 degrees.  Then lay the crescent rolls out on a baking sheet.  Don’t separate the rolls, you’ll want to leave it all as one piece. You can press the seems together if you want to make sure that it doesn’t separate while it’s cooking.

  • Step 2 – Top with Cheese – Next spread out the mozzarella cheese onto the crescent roll dough. Some recipes requires you to sprinkle each square with ½ cup of cheese. However, I’m never that exact and it’s delicious every time.

  • Step 3 – Fold up Sides – Then fold up the sides of the bread to make a long top.  Seal the edges by pressing the dough together with your fingers.

  • Step 5 – Cook Bread – Then cook according to direction on the Crescent rolls can until the bread is a beautiful golden brown color. There is no need to cover with aluminum foil.
  • Step 6 – Slice into Strips – Once it is cooked. Allow it to cool for just a few minutes. We sliced it into strips and make almost like breadsticks. The kids devoured them. 

I really think that this bread was completed gone in less than 30 minutes in my house.

What to Serve with this Stuffed Cheesy Bread:

I love serving this cheesy bread with my favorite dipping sauces.  Here are a few options for you to try. Also, you can double this recipe and serve it with multiple dipping sauce options for your next party or get together.

Recipe Variations Ideas:

This recipe is very versatile and there are tons of ways to switch it up. You can easily make it your own or make it your family’s favorite cheesy bread recipe.

  • Shredded Cheese – We used mozzarella cheese but feel free to use different types of cheese. Pepper Jack Cheese can be added for a little kick to the cheesy bread.
  • Bacon – If you have leftover cooked bacon chop up a few pieces and sprinkle inside the bread. Bacon bits can also be used.
  • Slice Jalapenos – Add in slice jalapenos or dice up some jalapenos for to put inside the bread. It would also be delicious served over the top.
  • Pepperoni – Add some slice pepperonis in the bread for a pizza style cheesy bread.
  • Change the Seasoning – Feel free to change the seasoning to what you prefer. Garlic Salt, minced garlic, garlic powder or dried parsley are good additions.
  • Melted Butter – You can brush the top with melted butter or olive oil.

Stuffed Cheese Bread Tips:

  • Bread – When rolling the store bought bread on the baking sheet, keep the crescent roll dough together. Press the dough together to make one whole sheet.
  • Baking Sheet – We like to recommend spraying the baking sheet with cooking spray to prevent the bread from sticking. You can also line with parchment paper.
  • Cheese – Use just the right amount of cheese. You do not want to overload the bread so that the cheese stays in the cheesy garlic bread.

Store leftover in the refrigerator in an air tight container. The leftover will last about 3 to 4 days.

  1. 5 stars
    I love recipes where I can just buy my dough. After dozens of attempts I realized I just can’t make bread. Thanks for the recipe, it looks amazing!

  2. This was as huge hit, so good! I melted a little bit of butter in a sauce pan with some roasted garlic, parmesan cheese and Italian herbs and brushed it in the inside and top. Turned out amazing!

  3. Just a suggestion, if you can find them, Pillsbury has crescent SHEETS you can use instead of the crescent rolls. No seams to worry with, but same results. This sounds like a great idea! I love the versatility of the crescents, too.

    Thanks for the great idea!

  4. Yes, I have seen those and agree that they would work great as well! Thanks for the sharing!
