Let me tell you something, when it comes to making food there’s always room for personalization. So, if Blue Cheese Bread isn’t exactly your cup of tea, don’t worry. Here are a few substitutions and variations that might make this recipe more suitable for your taste buds:

– Cheese: If you’re not a fan of blue cheese, or if you want to mix things up, go ahead and substitute it for parmesan cheese or cheddar cheese .This will give your bread playful and mild notes of cheesy flavors.

– Butter: While I believe nothing can truly beat the tastiness of butter, if you want to keep things on the low-fat side, go with margarine or another butter substitute. Just keep in mind that the final result will be slightly different.

– Buffalo Blue Chicken Flatbread: If bread isn’t quite enough to satisfy your cravings, consider turning this recipe into a Buffalo Blue Chicken Flatbread instead! Simply cut the bread dough into smaller portions (or use pre-made pizza crust) and slather with buffalo chicken mixture and your preferred amount of blue cheese.

– Cheesy Garlic Bread: Who doesn’t love garlic bread? Simply replace the blue cheese with garlic and grated parmesan cheese! This tasty recipe can be enjoyed as a starter to serve at dinner parties or game nights!

– Lobster Sub Bread: Are you feeling a bit bougie? How about adding lobster to this cheesy delight? Cut the baked bread into smaller sub loaves and fill them with chunks of lobster meat mixed with homemade blue cheese dressing.The combination of warm cheesy bread and buttery lobster meat is heavenly.

These alternatives should come as an additional recommendation for those who want to stay away from any ingredient they don’t like or for those who love to experiment with their food without changing the original flavor too much.

Serving and Pairing

 Fresh out of the oven and ready to be enjoyed!

Ah, finally the moment we’ve all been waiting for: the serving stage! Once that glorious blue cheese bread has come out of the oven and cooled down a bit (if you have the patience), it’s time to indulge in all its cheesy, buttery goodness.

For starters, let me just say that this bread pairs perfectly with pretty much anything. You could serve it as a finger food at a party or alongside a heaping bowl of soup – the possibilities are endless.

One serving suggestion is to pair it with Buffalo chicken flatbread pizzas. This fiery combo is sure to please fans of spicy food, and if you’re someone who loves a good kick in your dishes, then this is the pairing for you.

Alternatively, if you’re in the mood for something less intense, you might want to try pulling apart that warm bread and dipping it into some homemade blue cheese dressing. The flavors of the blue cheese will perfectly complement each other giving you an explosion of flavors in every bite.

If you’re looking for a savory breakfast or brunch idea, I recommend serving this bread alongside some crispy bacon or making some cheesy garlic bread using French bread slices. It’s guaranteed to make your lazy Sunday mornings feel extra special with your family.

Whether enjoyed alone or used as a tool to soak up any dipping sauce, this decadent bread recipe will have you scraping the baking dish clean before you know it. Get ready to share with family & friends because they won’t be able to resist its seductive aroma and divine taste.

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

 Perfectly golden and full of flavor.

Now, let’s talk about the art of preservation. You could bake a loaf of this blue cheese bread ahead of time and store it in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days at room temperature. However, if you’re feeling ambitious, try freezing it for later enjoyment.

Simply wrap the baked and cooled bread tightly in foil or plastic wrap before placing it in a zip-lock freezer bag. The loaf can be frozen for up to a month without compromising its texture or taste. Before serving, bring the bread to room temperature, then heat it gently in the oven at 350°F for approximately 10-15 minutes to give it new life.

If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to reheat individual slices, pop them into an air fryer or toaster oven until they’re crispy and warm.

Some might argue that reheated bread is never as good as freshly baked bread, but I always think it’s worth trying! If you’re lucky enough to have any leftovers, serve them up with some bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapenos and homemade blue cheese dressing or lobster sub. Trust me when I say that your family and friends will completely forget that this isn’t their first time enjoying this blue cheese garlic bread recipe.

Tips for Perfect Results

If you want to make the best blue cheese bread, here are some tips that can help you achieve perfect results every time.

Firstly, make sure you use fresh ingredients. This is especially important if you’re using cheese since it has a tendency to spoil quickly. If your cheese has been in the fridge for a while and smells off, it’s best to toss it and get fresh cheese.

Secondly, consider adding other types of cheese to the recipe. While blue cheese is the star of this recipe, combining it with other types of cheese can take it to the next level. Parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese or even mozzarella are great options that can complement blue cheese flavors.

Thirdly, take your time when making the bread dough. Kneading the dough properly will give you a great texture and ensure that the bread rises well. Be patient and allow enough time for the yeast to do its job before baking.

Fourthly, don’t skimp on butter or margarine when making this recipe. It’s what gives the bread its rich and buttery taste. Since blue cheese can be quite strong, it’s important to balance out those flavors with a good amount of butter.

Fifthly, try out different shapes for your bread loaf. The traditional round shape is great but using a rectangular baking dish can result in beautiful pull-apart bread that’s perfect for serving at parties or family gatherings.

Lastly, consider serving this blue cheese bread alongside dishes like buffalo chicken flatbread pizzas or lobster subs. These pairings can make for a delicious meal that leaves your family and friends asking for more.

By following these tips and recommendations, you’ll create a showstopper masterpiece that will have everyone reaching for seconds!

Bottom Line

In conclusion, the Best Blue Cheese Bread recipe is a must-try for any bread and cheese lover out there. This recipe is simple and easy to make, yet it packs a flavorful punch that will leave your taste buds craving for more. By using quality cheeses like parmesan and crumbled blue cheese, along with a rich buttery spread, this recipe has everything you need to get your cheese fix.

Not only does this bread work great as a side dish, but it can also be used as a base for other delicious meals like buffalo chicken flatbread pizzas or cheesy garlic bread. And if you’re worried about storing leftovers or making-ahead, don’t be! This bread stores wonderfully in the fridge and reheats beautifully in the oven.

Overall, this recipe is perfect for family gatherings, dinner parties, or just a relaxing night in with friends. So what are you waiting for? Get baking and indulge in some of the tastiest bread you’ll ever have!

  • 1 (16 1/3 ounce) package pillsbury grands homestyle biscuits
  • 1/4 cup butter or 1/4 cup margarine
  • 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
  • parmesan cheese (optional)


  • Melt butter or margarine in pan; add blue cheese.
  • Stir until blue cheese is melted and smooth.
  • Take each dinner roll, and cut it into 6 pieces.
  • Oil an 8x8-inch (or similar size) pan or glass baking dish (glass baking dish is preferred).
  • Pour butter/blue cheese mixture into the baking dish.
  • Place the cut up pieces of dough into the baking dish, on top of the blue cheese/butter mixture, crowding the pieces so that they touch.
  • Bake according to packaged roll directions, usually 13-17 minutes, on about 350°-375°, or until golden brown on underside of pan (that is why it is good to use a glass dish, so you can lift it up to see if the underside is baked enough).
  • When done, invert baking dish and the easy blue cheesy bread should drop out easily--so that what was the "bottom" in the baking dish becomes the "top"--serve immediately.
  • While it is still hot, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve (optional).
  • This is basically "pull apart finger food" and is absolutely delicious!
