Cheesy Garlic Butter Rolls are what you would get if garlic bread and a pastry had a baby. If you love cheese and flaky, buttery layers, then you will love this easy recipe! This easy roll recipe is perfect for serving alongside Easter dinner!

I love creating versatile, easy dressed up or down type recipes. These Cheesy Garlic Butter Rolls are just that type of recipe. Super special and delicious for a holiday meal, but easy enough for a weeknight, too! The puff pastry and fresh herbs make them look cravable, and after one bite, you will definitely be hooked. These go perfectly alongside your Easter ham or turkey and will really round out the meal with such an easy roll recipe.

These rolls are so good that they can stand alone from a meal too and be served as an appetizer or snack! They look beautiful displayed with some marinara sauce for dipping. Everyone will love the layers of cheese, herbs, and flaky pastry dough. Puff pastry is one of my favorite go tos for entertaining. Store bought puff pastry looks fancy and difficult, but it is such an easy dough to work with.

There are some classic flavors that just always go together. Peanut butter and chocolate. Parmesan and herb and of course, garlic and butter! Slather garlic butter on anything and it instantly becomes delicious! Add cheese and well you just have the best combination ever!

I love bread but I often skip the dinner roll so that I can fill up on the yummier stuff. While there is nothing wrong with the humble store bought dinner roll, it sometimes just isn’t worth it when you are faced with a delicious feast of carb heavy favorites. Well I can guarantee no one will be skipping these delicious rolls full of cheesy goodness and delicious garlic herb flavor!

Cheesy Garlic Butter Rolls

An updated take on cheesy garlic bread! Layers of puff pastry with garlic butter, cheese, and fresh herbs!

Course Appetizer
Cuisine American
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 14 minutes
Servings 10 rolls


  • 1 sheet puff pastry defrosted but still cold
  • 4 tbsp. butter
  • 3 large garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbsp. minced fresh parsley and basil
  • 1 cup shredded cheese mozzarella, gouda, or anything you like!
  • 1 tbsp. parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  2. Lay your dough out flat and use water on your finger to smooth out any seams. Place dough on a cookie sheet with either parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet.

  3. In a small sauce pan, melt butter. Once melted, add garlic and dried herbs. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until garlic is fragrant. Using a basting brush, brush garlic butter mixture onto the sheets of pastry. Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top of the butter mixture.

  4. Roll dough up into a log and cut 3/4 inch slices. Spread slices across the cookie sheet. Brush each piece with remaining butter, then sprinkle with fresh herbs and the parmesan cheese. Refrigerate your dough for 10-15 minutes to ensure it is still cold. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until puffy and golden brown.

  5. Remove from oven and serve warm or at room temperature with marinara sauce or plain.

  1. There appears that you may be missing a step in your instructions (between 3 and 4). For example there’s no mention of what to do with the 1 cup of shredded cheese, or the first portion of butter garlic mixture.
