Caprese Skewers

Prep Time: 20 min.
Bake Time: 10-12 min.
Servings: 4 (2 skewers per person)
Difficulty: Beginner
Mozzarella stuffed rolls and bursting cherry tomatoes make this the best Caprese you’ve ever tasted!


12 Rhodes White Dinner Rolls, dough thawed to room temperature
8 oz low moisture mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
cherry tomatoes
fresh basil leaves


  1. Soak wooden skewers in water for 5-10 minutes to prevent burning on grill.
  2. Cut each roll in half. Wrap each roll half around each cube of cheese. Make sure the dough is sealed over the cheese.
  3. Alternate the items on the skewer: cheese stuffed roll, two grape tomatoes, then a leaf of basil, repeat.
  4. Grill on direct medium heat, closing the grill lid so the dough will cook through. Once the rolls are browned, remove the skewers from the grill.

    How do I do this under the broiler? I don’t have a grill.

      Thank you for your question! I haven’t tried this under the broiler but I think the biggest thing would be to watch it carefully. I would make sure the dough is browning and cooking thoroughly and turning to brown evenly. I hope this helps youu!

        I would bake it in the oven at 350-375 keeping an eye in it closely until the rolls are done. Broiling will leave the dough unbaked

          Another good idea! It’s not a lot of dough so broiling should work as well. As long as you are turning them and watching them closely.
