Cheesy Italian Monkey Bread

You Need:

cup grated Parmesan cheese
teaspoons Italian seasoning
cans (4.5 oz each) Pillsbury® refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
cup butter, melted
cup shredded mozzarella cheese (2 oz)

To Make: 

  • 1Heat oven to 350┬░F. Grease 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with shortening or spray with cooking spray.
  • 2In 1-gallon bag, mix Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning. Separate dough into 24 biscuits; cut each into quarters (a pizza wheel works really well for this). Place biscuit pieces in bag. Shake bag to coat dough.
  • 3Place half of dough pieces in pan. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over dough. Place remaining dough pieces in pan over cheese. Sprinkle any excess Parmesan cheese mixture over dough. Pour melted butter over top.
  • 4Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Place heatproof plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Remove pan. Pull apart to serve.


You can mix up the spices or use Italian cheese to add even more robust flavor.

Serve with a side of marinara sauce for dipping.
