Hot Five-Cheese Rolls with Garlic
Quick & easy five cheese & garlic rolls
Serve these delicious rolls straight from the oven and they are oh, so very tasty. So gooey. So cheese-y. So garlicky. Just perfect.
These are incredibly easy to prepare and yet are delicious to serve with soup, with a salad or, if you’re like us, as a meat-free meal served with sliced tomatoes, spring onions, fresh basil and the requisite glass of red wine (or more).
They’re delicious as part of a leisurely brunch too. Divide the cheeses in advance and make the garlic, parmesan and oil mixture - keep these in the fridge until you’re ready to cook them.
When your brunch guests arrive, simply heat up the oven, assemble the rolls and bake them for fifteen minutes . Your house will have the most wonderful aroma of baking biscuits and the tang of tasty garlic.
How to make these delicious rolls
Although I specify one ounce of each type of cheese, this isn't exact. You can also use the cheeses of your choice, although I particularly recommend that you use parmesan and mozzarella as two of your choices. The parmesan gives the rolls a crunchy coating and the mozzarella melts to perfection.
You can see here that in addition to the parmesan, I used roquefort, mozzarella, farmhouse cheddar and goat cheese. Every time I make these, they are different because I use whatever cheese I have to hand. Each slice of cheese needs to be cut into eight cubes (roughly three-quarters of an inch) and I quickly rolled the goat cheese into balls for ease of handling.
As you can see, they don't have to be divided into eight pieces that are exactly the same, approximate is fine. You can also adjust the amount of garlic to suit your tastes. If you just like hint, use less. If you're trying to keep vampires away, add more.
- 1 tube biscuit dough (eight biscuits)
- 1 oz each of four cheeses of your preference
- 1 heaped tablespoon ready-grated parmesan
- 1 tablespoon good olive oil
- 3 peeled and crushed cloves of garlic
- Preheat the oven. The type of biscuit dough I use needs a temperature of 375 degrees
- Open the tube of biscuits and place each piece of dough on a lightly floured board. Flatten them a little with your hand. Add the garlic, olive oil and parmesan to a small bowl and mix well
- Put one piece of each of the other four cheeses on each slice of biscuit dough so that each has one chunk of mozzarella, one of cheddar, one of roquefort and one ball of goat cheese
- Using your hands, pull up the edges of each piece of biscuit dough so it forms a coat around the cheese.Roll gently in your hands to form balls
- Roll each ball in the bowl containing the oil, garlic and parmesan mix
- Place the rolls on a baking tray. If you have any of the oil mix left - I always do - spoon it over the top of the rolls
- Bake for fifteen minutes
- Serve straight from the oven
See the melty, gooey cheese? Mmm.
The oil, garlic and parmesan makes a lovely crunchy topping too. I bet you can almost smell them.

We can't get enough garlic bread. These days, I prefer to use dough that is ready-prepared simply for the sake of speed and convenience.
Love garlic? We do.
This is THE tool you need. We use ours almost every day. It's made by OXO - so you know it's going to be great quality - we've had ours for years.It's stylish too.
If you love what they call 'the stinking rose' as much as we do, then you'll love this book.It makes a great gift, too.
Now the wonderful thing is,I find, that almost everything that tastes wonderful seems to be bad for you - even the glorious avocado has too many calories than it decently ought to - but garlic is thought to have all sorts of wonderful healthy properties.
Oh, it keeps vampires at bay, too :)
