Cheesy Garlic Monkey Bread


We eat quite a bit of pasta around here, and yes I know that's not always the healthiest, but it is the cheapest to make, it stretches, it feeds a lot and with prices going up and up lately, it's easy on the budget.

One of our favorite side dishes when eating pasta, is the ever popular garlic bread.

But I don't always want to eat the same, and sometimes I crave something a little different.  This recipe came about when I was trying to figure out what to make with our ravioli last week.  I started by making my usual pizza dough, and thought about making a focaccia but wasn't in the mood for that.

I sat around for a bit and then thought, well why not just make some sort of monkey bread but garlic cheese and that way people can just rip off pieces.  It will be fun and tasty.  So that is what I did.

The result was this really yummy fun garlic cheese monkey bread.  The hubby and kids loved it and it's now a favorite around here.


Cheesy Garlic Monkey Bread
Mozzarella cheese, cubed
Melted Butter
Parmesan Cheese
Italian Seasoning
Make the pizza dough, then break off small balls of dough, flatten slightly, add some cubed mozzarella cheese and close, making sure to pinch the seams.
In a small bowl, melt the butter, and add italian seasoning and some parmesan cheese.  Mix well.
Roll the dough balls in the melted butter, and then add to a greased bundt pan.
Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until browned and the dough is cooked all the way through.  Invert onto a plate, and serve immediately.
