What’s for Dinner: Garlic Pull-Apart Bread

Monkey Bread. Pull apart breads. Whatever you want to call it. It’s delicious. And that’s all that matters in the end.

I’ve done a stuffed [pizza] monkey bread in the past, but today’s is more of a side dish. Or a snack. A fun twist on garlic bread. They are individual [or mini] monkey breads.

You will need:

  • 2 cans of [refrigerated] biscuits
  • 6 tablespoons of [unsalted] butter, melted
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons of [dried] parsley flakes
  • 1/4 cup of [grated] Parmesan cheese

To make the Garlic [Monkey] Bread:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a non-stick muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray for extra precaution.
  2. In a bowl, combine your melted butter, garlic powder, parsley, and parmesan cheese.
  3. Cut each of the biscuits into 6 pieces and place in the bowl where you have combined the rest of the ingredients. Gently mix, so you evenly coat all of the biscuits.  Divide the biscuit pieces evenly among your muffin pan. I did some with four in it, and others with six in it.
  4. Bake [in your preheated oven] for about 14 minutes.
The above quantitiies make 16 good sized individual pull-apart breads. Next time, if I’m just making it for my family, I’d definitely cut it in half.

These are best when served warm. They were great on their own, or I’d recommend serving these with marinara sauce [or whatever your favorite pizza-like sauce may be]. Today, I made these alongside Bang Bang Shrimp and another version of my baked fries. I also think serving this alongside spaghetti or any [red sauce] pasta would be a nice combination.
