Yes it’s really true – you can make an incredibly flavorful appetizer like this with just four simple ingredients!
- Blue Cheese (or any other type of cheese you enjoy!)
- 1 loaf of Rhodes Thaw, Rise, & Bake White Bread Dough OR 12 dinner rolls from a bag of Rhodes Thaw, Rise & Bake Dinner Rolls
- A pinch of garlic powder
How to Make Cheesy Baked Bread Bites:
First, thaw one loaf or 12 of your dinner rolls according to package instructions.
Melt your butter in the baking dish you want to use. If using the bread dough, cut the loaf into large pieces. Toss your dough in the butter!
Sprinkle your cheese on top, and add the pinch of garlic powder. This beauty is now ready for the oven! Easiest appetizer ever.
You can, of course, sub for the blue cheese, like I mentioned earlier. I love blue cheese but something like cheddar or gruyere would work perfectly here, too! You could also use a mix of your two favorite cheeses. This recipe is flexible!
The most important part is that you dive into this while it’s hot out of the oven – the bread is light, fluffy, and buttery. The cheese is melty and flavorful. The whole situation is just divine!
Happy baking, friends!

Cheesy Baked Bread Bites
- 1 loaf Rhodes Thaw, Rise, & Bake Bread Dough You can also use 12 of their Thaw, Rise, & Bake Dinner Rolls
- 5 ounces blue cheese Can sub for something else like cheddar, gruyere, or a mix of your favorite cheeses
- 11 TBSP salted butter
- pinch of garlic powder
- Prep: Thaw the Rhodes Thaw, Rise, & Bake dough according to package directions. Let it rise for 1 hour at room temp like the packaging says.
- Assemble: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Melt your butter inside a 9-inch baking dish. Slice the bread dough (if using a loaf) into about 21 large chunks (see photos above). Toss the bread pieces in the butter to get them nice and coated. Nudge them into an even layer. Sprinkle the cheese on top, and add a sprinkle of garlic powder.
- Bake: Bake 28 minutes. Rolls will be starting to get golden brown. I added a little egg wash (1 beaten egg, brushed over the tops of the bread) after 28 mins and baked them for 3 more minutes. This is optional but adds a nice shine and golden brown color to the bread. Either way, do bake for 31 mins total.
- Serve + Store: Enjoy while hot + fresh from the oven! Store leftovers, well covered, in the fridge for a few days. This is best enjoyed fresh, however.
