We’ve used this same recipe but made a sweet cherry cheesecake monkey bread that is great for breakfast or dessert…and this savory one is perfect for dinner.

You just need your favorite spices, a bundt pan, and 2 packages of refrigerated biscuits.

Here is how you make it.

Monkey bread recipe

I used a few different toppings; ground mustard, poppy seeds, a garlic salt mixture, kosher salt, and cheddar cheese.

  • First cut your large refrigerated biscuits into quarters.
  • Then melt your stick of butter and dunk one at a time into the butter
  • Then put into one bowl of toppings and place in bottom of bundt pan that has been sprayed with non stick spray.
  • I would suggest using a non stick bundt pan to begin with but still spraying it a bit to ensure it slides out nicely when your savory monkey bread is done….you want it to look pretty.

  • Put into bundt pan. Alternate spices around the pan so they are mixed up.
