Mini Garlic Monkey Bread

As I promised in Monday’s post, next week we’ll have 5 different SOUP recipes to share with you.
Before we get to that, may I remind you of a few of our favorites?  Like Bacon Jalapeno Corn Chowder, Spicy Chicken Tortilla, Broccoli Cheddar Potato Soup, White Chicken Chili, Zuppa Toscana or Black Bean & Salsa Soup…it may be the perfect weekend to try out one of these!
To prelude SOUP week, I want to share one of soup’s favorite side kicks…bread.  Bread sticks or beer bread are always delicious.  There’s a new kid on the block…mini garlic monkey bread.  It is, in one word – divine!  This recipe takes ordinary biscuits and takes them to another level.  You can easily halve or double this recipe depending on the size of your crowd.

  15. I love how easy these are to make and they sound so good! Thanks for sharing! I shared your post on my FB page tonight!

  16. i’m not entirely sure what monkey bread is… i kinda thought maybe it meant “cute” bread – like when you see a puppy and you exclaim “OH you little monkey face! you’re so cute!”… but i’m starting to think the lack of confusion re “monkey” may mean it’s an actual thing…

  17. These are great! So cute!! And I love how easy they are, too! I am going to add these to our menu this week!

  18. Made these with fresh basil and chopped up sun dried tomatoes for a twist. Came out great. Thanks for the idea.


  1. [...] is the first I’ve ever heard about it, and I think I’ve really been missing out.  These looks so delicious, and mouthwatering…I’m going to have to make some.  Perfect for me [...]
