These buns make the perfect companion to any salad, soup, or pasta dish!

How to Make Easy Cheesy Garlic Bread Rolls With Colby!

The complete list of ingredients, quantities, and instructions can be found in the printable recipe card below.

Process on assembling cheesy garlic bread rolls,
  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Grease or line two 8” x 8” casserole dishes (or one 9″ x 13″ pan).
  3. Pour the melted butter evenly over the sandwich sheets and use an offset spatula or inverted spoon to quickly spread the melted butter to the edges of the bread. (Photo 1)
  4. Sprinkle with minced garlic and top with shredded cheese. (Photos 2 & 3)
  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until cheese, is completely melted. (Photo 4)
  6. Cut into squares along the sandwich sheet lines and serve.

Storage

  • Baked rolls can be stored on the counter for up to three days.
  • In an airtight container, place your leftovers in the fridge. Your bread rolls will last up to five days.
  • Warm your cheesy garlic dinner buns in the oven or toaster oven for a few minutes at 300°F.

Tips

  • Instead of a spatula, use a brush to distribute the melted butter evenly on the rolls.
  • Use freshly shredded cheese instead of pre-made shredded cheese. It has chemicals that prevent the shreds from clumping together, resulting in a poor melting performance when cooked. Rather, grate your cheese. It’s less expensive and more delicious that way.
  • To help you mince the garlic, use a kitchen tool. You can use a food processor or a garlic press to aid in mincing the garlic.

Substitutions and Variations

  • Sprinkle some cooked and crumbled bacon on top of your baked Garlic Cheese Roll.
  • Cheese and ham go well together. Top your bread with a few pieces of thinly sliced ham. Then, continue with the rest of the cooking instructions.
  • Cheddar cheese, Mozzarella, or Swiss cheese are perfect substitutes for Colby cheese. You can also add caramelized onions too!

Garlic Cheese Bread FAQs

Is it necessary to refrigerate garlic bread with cheese?

Yes and no! If you used soft cheeses, keep your garlic cheese bread rolls refrigerated. If you use a hard cheese, your rolls may be stored at room temperature for 2-3 days.

Can you reheat garlic cheese bread in the microwave?

Yes, but they won’t have the same texture you’d expect from reheating them in the oven. If you want to reheat them in the microwave just place your garlic cheese bread rolls on a microwave-safe dish and heat for 10-20 seconds only.

Why does my cheesy garlic bread taste bitter?

Garlic can be bitter if overcooked. Make sure you follow the baking time in this recipe.

Can I make my own bread rolls?

Yes, you can make your own dinner rolls if you have the time. The recipe we offer here is for folks who are constantly on the run.

Can I use oil instead of butter?

Yes, you can use olive oil if you do not like butter. I’d just brush a light layer of olive oil on top of your bread and then top with the garlic and cheese. You definitely don’t want to pour it on and saturate your bread in it.
