Course Appetizer
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 3 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes
Servings 6


  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 4 string cheese logs (any variety)
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • vegetable oil
  • 2-4 tbsp Parmesan cheese


  • Unroll crescent rolls and form a large rectangle. Press seams together. 
  • Cut the dough to make 12 small rectangles.  
  • Cut each string cheese piece into 4 sections. 
  • Place a pinch or two of shredded cheese onto one of the small rectangles. Put a string cheese piece on top of the shredded cheddar cheese. 
  • Fold crescent dough over the string cheese and press seams together so the dough forms a sealed ball around the cheese. Repeat this process with remaining cheeses and crescent rectangles. 
  • Pour enough vegetable oil into a large Dutch oven or electric fryer so the oil is about 4 inches deep. Heat until it is 350 degrees. 
  • Carefully drop cheese bombs into hot oil. These cook quickly, so watch them so they don't overcook. 
  • Optional: Dust hot cheese bombs with Parmesan cheese.
