Cheesy Garlic Bites

I have a very busy day planned.
  • Thinking of all I'll be doing makes me hungry.
  • Being hungry makes me think of good food.
  • Good food makes me think of Cheesy Garlic Bites.
  • Cheesy Garlic Bites make me feel like sharing the recipe

Cheesy Garlic Bites
1 cup warm water
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp yeast
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2-1/4 cup flour
Mix water, vegetable oil, sugar, and salt. Add 1 cup flour and yeast. Mix until smooth. Add Parmesan cheese and mix again. Add another cup of flour. Mix well. Add remaining 1/4 cup of flour and knead by hand.
Cover with a cloth and set aside for 45 minutes.
On a greased surface roll out this dough to a 12"x20" rectangle. It's a good idea to grease your rolling pin too.
Spread with 2 tablespoons of softened butter. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of fresh minced garlic and 1 cup of your choice of shredded cheese. (I used cheddar this time) and 1 tablespoon parsley flakes. Roll up and cut in 1 inch slices and place sliced side down on a greased or parchment paper lined pan (I like to use my airbake cookie sheet) bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve. Yield approximately 24
These never fail to make any meal better! They are so good I always have a hard time stopping with just one or two.


  1. OH! Thank you SO much for dropping by. I'm afraid you've caught me with my house a mess and my hair undone as I'm currently not posting everyday as I normally do. (Illness and all that irritating kind of thing.) I vow to be back shortly!

    Loved reading that you were formerly Amish and can't wait to be able to come back and read more. Have you posted about that part of your life? I will search when I am allowed to be in my chair longer!

  2. Thank you for the lovely visit. Next time, if you don't mind please bring some of these cheesy garlic bites for I'd love to try them.
    They look delish!

  3. Oh, man, I want those. All of 'em!

  4. They're low calorie... right? Oh please say they are!
    They look delicious and I think I'll try them with my split pea soup tonight!

    I make a slight variation with chopped cooked bacon and green onions (green onion cakes)... and they were the first thing my son asked for when we went back to CA last year! ;-)
    Wait til I share the cheesy garlic bites with him!

    I'm enjoying your blog so far. I'm making myself start at the beginning and work my way to the present day. I'm fascinated by the Amish culture, and I'm really enjoying a firsthand account from someone who grew up. Your stories are so sweetly told and make me feel like I'm there with you. You really should publish these in book form. I'm sure it would be a best-seller!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
