Herbed Monkey Bread

This is a Paula Deen recipe and it's pure genius!!! This makes an awesome bread for any kind of special meal or party you are having - it is SO good I could eat the whole thing myself!

Ingredients
  • 1 stick butter melted, plus 1/4 cup melted butter, plus more for pan
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 2 packages biscuits

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a 12-cup Bundt pan; set aside.

In a small bowl, combine cheese and Italian seasoning.

Roll each individual biscuit into a ball. Dip each piece in the 1 stick of melted butter, then coat with the cheese mixture. Place dough into prepared pan; overlapping will occur. Bake bread, 30 to 35 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil during the last 10 minutes of baking to prevent excess browning, if needed.

Let cool in pan, 10 minutes; invert bread onto a serving plate. Drizzle remaining 1/4 cup melted butter on top and sprinkle with grated Parmesan.

I'm not sure what "2 packages biscuits" means. Is it the biscuit dough in the tube? How many biscuits are needed? Thank you. : )

I always have done Monkey bread as a sweet treat with the same thing, bicquits, but used brown sugar, butter, and pecans (cinnamon optional). Basically, it's like cinnamon rolls. This is a wonderful alternative for a savory option. The sweet version is very yummy and makes a great breakfast!

what kind of biscuits do you use? and do you just put the balls of dough in the bottom of the bundt pan in one layer?

I will have to try this - I love Paula Deen. I probably already told you that I was this (fingers almost pinched together =]) to meeting her last summer when she came up on her cruise.

Thanks for all the work you put into your blog - it's one of my favorites!

I'm going to make this for our Father's Day lunch Sunday! I can not wait to see how it turns out! I'm like y'all, I've never seen this version of Monkey Bread. We've always had the biscuits, cinnamon, sugar and butter kind!
