Cheesy onion pullapart rolls

Hello and welcome!  I’m sharing a family favorite today — cheesy onion pull-aparts. And to be honest, I forget about this recipe. I am not sure how because it’s so dang good.

These rolls are definitely a comfort food. They are one of my husband’s favorites and he is normally the one to remind me to make them.

Cheesy Onion Pull-Apart Rolls

These rolls are delish. Gooey and cheesy!  Especially right out of the oven.  Or even warmed up the next day.

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

Grocery List

  • 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

Instructions & Recipe Tips

Preheat your oven to 350°. There are a few options to thaw the frozen rolls – 1) place them on a plate and leave in the refrigerator for several hours or 2) the quick method by defrosting the frozen rolls in the microwave until soft.

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, for example.

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

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 for 20 minutes to let the dough rise.  It should almost double in size.

Bake at 350° 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.
