TGIF, y'all.  TGIF. This week has been crazy long and I am more than ready to take some time to just chill out with the family! I'm even thinking about taking a night off from cooking and going out for dinner - which is a rare treat for us! It's been that kinda week.

Last night I made a slow cooker pasta dish (it will be on the blog soon!) and in my haste, I forgot the bread again. It happens every time these days. Thankfully, I have a few quick and easy recipes in my arsenal to help me out. I was digging through one of my (many) recipe boxes and found this recipe. I haven't made it in such a long time. As a matter of fact, I remember the last time I made it was at my parent's house .... my dad thought these little Cheddar Cheese Bites were "the bomb." I had to ask him if he even knew what that term, "the bomb," meant since he's kinda un-hip and not up with the modern lingo. He actually knew!! LOL.

My kiddos think these Cheddar Cheese Bites taste like Cheez-It® crackers with the texture being a cross between a cracker and biscuit. To some extent, I actually agree with them. These little bites are super easy to mix up - I find using my hands the easiest. They're perfect for parties, tailgating, appetizers, snacks, with soup ... or if you're like me - anytime you forget the bread (AGAIN).

You can easily add some crumbled bacon or finely chopped green onions for a change of pace. Although I have never tried other cheeses, I'm sure it can easily be changed out as well. Enjoy, y'all!

Cheddar Cheese Bites
by Jamie @ Love Bakes Good Cakes
Yield: (2 dozen)

Ingredients
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup (half of a stick) butter, softened
  • ½ tsp. ground mustard

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients until well mixed. Roll or scoop the mixture into 1-inch balls. Place at least 1-inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.

3. Bake 12-15 minutes or until the puffs are lightly browned. Serve warm.

*NOTE - I find it easiest to mix this with my hands.

  1. Oh wow, this looks awesome, Jamie ! We'll all love it, especially Roy as anything cheese is his kinda "addiction" - will have to make a double batch ;-)

  3. Are they tasty at room temp or should they be eaten warm out of the oven? Have you tried reheating? These look amazing!

    1. I prefer them while still warm, but we eat them at room temperature also! My kiddos think they taste like Cheez-It crackers. I have never tried re-heating them - they never last that long at my house! ;)

  8. Your dad is too cute!
    I know I will like these. The dough is similar to an appetizer I make--it's wrapped around an olive and baked. Thanks for sharing, Jamie.

  9. Can I know what is the role of mustard in the recipe? Can we omit it? Kids are not quite fans of mustard.

  10. Mustard is added for a bit of flavor - but these do not taste like mustard! :) You wouldn't even know that it's in there. You can leave it out if you prefer.

  12. Has anyone tried making these with coconut flour to make them low carb? Looks delish and I am craving something like this!

  13. Oh, thank you, thank you! I haven't thought to make these for several years and just discovered I lost the recipe. So here I am searching the internet for my old recipe and found you. Everyone loves these bites. I usually make a double or triple batch and put half a Lit'l Smokie in half of the batch. I just wrap the dough ball around the Smokie. I'm so happy you made this post. Thanks again!
