Cheesy Garlic Bread “Cinnamon” Rolls
If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know that I am awful about remembering to pick up bread on my grocery trips. Partly because my kids forget to write it on my list and partly because I forget to check myself before heading out to shop. Over the years, I have created quite the collections of bread recipes.
Most have been found, used, or created out of necessity. I mean, how do you have spaghetti without the garlic bread or some kind of breadsticks?! Or how do you have Thanksgiving dinner without buttery rolls?!
In my opinion, you just can’t. So I have a whole index card box FULL of bread recipes.
Back before we moved to Phoenix, I used to bake almost all of our bread from scratch. It was something I truly enjoyed. I don’t know what it was about moving here, but so many things changed. Most days feel too hot to even want to turn on the oven … so I kind of quit making as much bread. Which is really a shame because I loved it so much.
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to visit Kansas Wheat and learn a few things about wheat – from how they make different varieties of wheat, to seeing how wheat is harvested, to actually using wheat products to make bread.
I appreciate the people who took the time to talk to and show us something they are so passionate about.
On that trip, I felt that desire to start baking more bread reignited.
Call me crazy, but I immediately wanted to make a savory version of “cinnamon’ rolls – and these Cheesy Garlic Bread “Cinnamon” Rolls immediately came to mind. They were an instant hit with my family – and we’ve already made them THREE times!
Even though these Cheesy Garlic Bread “Cinnamon” Rolls are not “breakfast” food, my kiddos love them so much, they’ve been eating any leftover rolls for breakfast! What can I say?
I used Red Star Platinum Yeast to make these rolls. I love that it provides professional results every time! It’s simple to use and provides consistent results. If you haven’t tried it before, be sure to look for it at your local grocery store!
You’re going to love these Cheesy Garlic Bread Cinnamon Rolls – I hope you give them a try!

Thanks for this luscious looking bread recipe! I’m recovering from a knee replacement surgery. When I’m back on my feet, I’ll try this out!
Wish you had included instructions for hand made dough. Rising and other. I really wanted to make this bread but everyone does not have a bread machine. The recipe does look wonderful.
The bread machine just helps u mix and keep an optimum temperature for rising the dough. Without it you can mix by hand or stand up mixer. Dough is all the same. Proof yeast with sugar and water. Mix dry ingredients. Mix dry and yeast mixture together. I just tried it and it worked. Though I found it too rich for me so I won’t be making it again. But this is how u make dough by hand.
Mix water, sugar, and yeast. Wait till bubbly.
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Add yeast mixture to dry ingredients. Mix until it comes together.
Put rough dough on counter and knead until it becomes a smooth ball.
Grease large bowl with oil. Coat ball with oil and cover bowl with towel. Let rest for one hour.
Did you win when you entered the bread contest?
Any chance you would include the directions for those of us without a bread machine? Thanks and they sound too [email protected]
I don’t have a bread machine- do I need to allow for any time to rise ? I usually do the kneading with my kitchen aid mixer, can’t wait to make this – looks so yummy!
Absolutely outstanding! I used Pecorino and Paremsean vs. Cheddar and less garlic and they are unreal!. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Just made this last night and came our great! The dough was perfect to work with. I did not use as much cheese and will more than likely just use some parmesan next time since it is very rich unless it is for a special occasion then make them more mini. Thank you so much for sharing!
This looks so good! The dough for cinnamon rolls is so good that it deserves to be used more often!
Thanks for sharing! Do they keep long?
I’m going to say about 2-3 days on the counter and 3-5 days if you refrigerate them.
You do not need a bread machine to make bread; , use a mix master or by hand…..
I made just a half recipe of the filling, and the rolls were still wonderful. Trying to think how to make them smaller…
If you want to make each individual roll smaller — that is, with a smaller radius — you could make the rectangle longer, like 24 x 7.5, and cut into more pieces.
If you want the same radius but want the rolls to be shorter, just cut more pieces — say, 16 instead of 12.
Is there any store bought dough that you would recommend using instead of making your own? These sound delicious!
I would use refrigerated pizza dough – although you may need to adjust the recipe slightly for the amount of dough.
Made this to pair with our Alfredo bake. It was absolutely amazing!! So easy and so yummy, it’s definitely a keeper.
I made these and only used 3 cups of cheese as 6 cups seems so excessive…I found myself wishing I had used 6 cups! Lol
These rolls are absolutely delicious
