Savory Monkey Bread

Growing up, we used to have Pull-Apart Bread on special occasions and holidays. So. Delicious. Except every time I used to mention Pull-Apart Bread, no one knew what the heck I was talking about. A few years ago, I realized that the rest of the world calls it Monkey Bread. Riiiggghhhttt. Anyway, here is a savory version. And guess what?! It's better than garlic bread! Now I can have Monkey Bread for dinner and dessert. :)

Idea from here.

Savory Monkey Bread

by Lindsey
Keywords: bake appetizer bread biscuit bacon

  • 2 16 oz cans Grands biscuits, cut into quarters with kitchen scissors
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/3 c scallions, diced
  • 1 c cheddar, shredded
  • 1/2 c bacon, chopped (or bacon bits)
  • Extra scallions and cheese for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350* and spray a baking sheet or 9x12 casserole dish with nonstick spray. I used a large PC stone (no need to spray).
Place the quartered biscuits into a large bowl.
Combine the melted butter, garlic powder and parsley in a small bowl.
Toss the biscuits with the melted butter, scallions, cheese and bacon.
Spread in one even layer onto the baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes or until nicely puffed and golden brown.
Top with extra scallions and cheese.
Best served warm.
