Garlic Cheese Bombs Recipe - Garlic, Cheese & Herb Mini Buns Recipe

I have been in baking mood..When i succeeded in baking my dominos style garlic breadstick recipes, i wanted to bake many other buns recipe as well.. So yesterday i decided to make some delicious bread recipes. 

When i was surfing pinterest, i found some many recipes for soup sticks and cheese bombs which caught my eyes and i decided to make some. I made a double batch of the dough and made garlic cheese bombs and  breadsticks using that.

This recipe is so easy to make and it taste great warm when served with tomato sauce or any sauces. It can be served along side with soups. This is full of garlic and herb flavour and it turns out soft. Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 30 mins
Resting Time : 2 hours
Baking Time : 15 mins
Makes : 20 to 25 sticks


All Purpose Flour / Maida - 3 cups + more as needed

Dried Yeast - 1 tblspn
Sugar - 1 tblspn
Salt to taste
Olive Oil or Cooking Oil - 2 tblspn + 1 tblspn
Luke Warm Milk - 1 cup + 1/4 cup
Mozarella Cheese - 200 grams cubed

For Garlic Oil:

Unsalted Butter - 1/2 cup
Oil - 1/4 cup
Garlic - 2 tblspn grated
Italian Seasoning or Oregano - 1 tblspn
Red Chilli Flakes - 2 tsp
Salt to taste


First lets make  the dough. Take yeast and sugar in a bowl. Add in 1/4 cup of warm milk and mix well. Let it sit for 5 mins till it is activated and foamy.

Now take flour, salt, olive oil in a large bowl. Mix well. Pour the yeast mix and remaining milk and knead it to a soft dough. Add 1 tblspn of oil and knead to a soft dough for 10 mins till it is soft and smooth.

Now cover the dough with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place for 1 to 2 hours till it is doubled in size.

Now lets make the garlic oil. Take all the ingredients for the oil and heat gently till the butter is melted. Remove it from heat and set aside.

Now take the dough. Punch back the air from the dough and knead one more time. Take a small portion from dough, roll it into a log and cut into pieces.

Now take a ball and flatten it lightly, place a cube of cheese in the center and cover it well. Roll it into a smooth ball.

Now take the balls and dip it in the garlic butter and place it in the tray.

Set aside the tray and preheat oven to 200 degree C.

Now put the tray in oven and bake it for 10 to 15 mins untill golden. Remove it and brush with the oil if needed.

Serve warm.

  1. Hi.. I tried this recipe jus nw & it is just a Lott amazing..:*..!! My husband who is a garlic bread lover was just flattered.. Thanx a lot for d amazing recipe Aarthi. Literally I'm skipping my dinner coz I don wanna lose this garlic flavour from my tongue.. Love yu Aarthi...!!!<3..

  2. The taste was flawless.. But d bread didn't turn brown on top even after 15 mins... I served a white bomb..:p.. Any suggestion.??

  3. @Tergiglad to hear that u tried and loved it..the browning may be because of each oven..i can give u a easy trick for browning on top..
    After the buns are baked, turn the oven mode to grill and set temp to 250 degree C. place the tray on top rack and grill it for just 30 sec to 45 sec..dont grill too much else the top may get hard and burned.

  4. such a mouth watering recipe. I have to try this ... like really soon. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  5. Hi,

  8. Hi Aarthi

    I am planning to make this as an appetiser this weekend for some guests. Now can i make this early that day to serve for evening or should i be making it only by the time they arrive?? are they gonna harden up or stay fluffy it kept long?

  9. @Vidya Udayu can make the dough and keep ready. u can whip this up an hour before..but still it will taste great if u make it in morning
