French Onion Cheesy Pull Apart Bread Recipe

These rolls are delish. Gooey and cheesy!  Especially right out of the oven.  And if you’re having them as leftovers all you need to do is warm them up and they are still gooey and delicious.

Preparing the rolls to go in the oven normally takes about 30 minutes, including assembling the rolls plus 20 minutes for the rolls to rise.  This recipe yields 24 rolls.

Ingredients

  • 24 Rhodes frozen bread dough rolls (orange package – hard to miss them)
  • 1 small block of medium cheddar cheese
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 packet of french onion soup mix

Supplies

Recipe Instructions & Tips

First, you’ll want to make sure your frozen bread dough rolls are thawed out.

There are a few options to thaw the frozen rolls:

  1. Place them on a plate and leave them in the refrigerator to thaw for several hours.
  2. Or use the quick method by defrosting the frozen rolls in the microwave until soft.

Preheat your oven to 350°F.

Cut the small block of medium cheddar cheese into chunks. You can also try different types of cheeses depending on your preference. Sharp cheddar or pepper jack would also be delicious.

Wrap one roll around each piece of cheddar cheese and place it back on the plate.

In a small bowl, melt the stick of butter and mix in one french onion soup packet.

Dip each roll (with cheese inside) in the butter and onion soup mixture.

Place the dipped rolls into an angel food pan.

******Important: make sure to wrap the bottom of the pan with several layers of aluminum foil or the butter will leak out and burn!*******

You can also use a bundt pan, but you will likely need to decrease the number of rolls and the bake time.

Leave in a warm spot, covered with a tea towel or plastic wrap, for 20 minutes to let the dough rise.  It should almost double in size.

Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes.  Pull up on a few rolls to make sure they are cooked and not doughy.

Depending on your oven, you may need to bake longer.  Turn upside down on a plate and serve.

Common Questions


How do I make pull apart cheesy bread?

This is my favorite way to make pull-apart cheesy bread. Using frozen bread dough and wrapping it around small chunks of cheese, baked together in an angel food pan, to make delicious monkey bread. Our bread machine bun dough would also work great if you wanted to try a made from scratch dough.

How do I store cheesy bread?

I store this cheesy bread in a ziplock bag or airtight container on the counter. You don’t need to refrigerate these rolls, but you can. After storing, they are best when warmed up.

What other variations can I make with these rolls?

You can certainly get creative and use different types of cheese like pepper jack, sharp cheddar, garlic cheddar, or smoked cheddar. Or try a pizza version where you use mozzarella string cheese and pizza sauce inside the bread dough rolls.
