These little Cheesy Bacon Bombs are so good, you’ll want to make them often! We like them as a bread side with spaghetti, pizza, or chicken wings.

The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make Cheesy Bacon Bombs (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the easy to print recipe card):

  • Refrigerated biscuits – be sure you’re using the small biscuits, not the large “Grands” style biscuits. These small biscuits come in tubes that are 7.5 ounces each and usually have 10 small biscuits in each tube.
  • Mozzarella cheese – use a block of mozzarella and slice it into small chunks.
  • Bacon – your favorite variety of bacon will be perfect. Fully cook the bacon until crisp, then crumble.
  • Butter – we used regular salted butter.
  • Italian seasoning blend
  • Garlic powder
  • Marinara sauce – this is for a dipping sauce for the rolls.

How to Make Cheesy Bacon Bombs

Easy Clean Up

For easy clean up when making Cheesy Bacon Bombs, cover the baking sheet in foil. At least a few of the rolls are bound to ooze cheese while baking, so the foil will make the cleanup so much easier.
