Parmesan Garlic Monkey Bread

I monkeyed around with our favorite wheat bread recipe today and this is what I came up with.  After the first rise in the bowl, I shaped half the batch into a loaf to bake and half into this!  The exterior pieces had a really nice crust to them. It went well with our rice and beans.

Parmesan Garlic Monkey Bread

bread dough (one loaf worth)
1/2 cube butter
parmesan cheese
granulated garlic
dried parsley

Mix dried ingredients. Pull bread dough into small balls, then dip in butter and roll in dry mixture, and place in loaf pan. When all the bread is in the pan, pour the rest of the dry mixture and the butter over the top. Bake immediately, 350 about 25 minutes, or cover with saran wrap and put in the fridge. I made my bread in the morning, and pulled this out about the same time I put the rice on to cook. (Why yes, we DO like carbs! Why do you ask? Isn't wheat the staff of life?)

  1. I am not really into baking so I am going to tell my sister to bake this one for me! It really looks so delicious!

  2. Mmm...sounds tasty!

    Did you give the dough a first rise in the bowl?

    And next time I make bread, I'm SO making one of the loaves into monkey bread...cinnamon, baby. ;-)

  3. LoLo, you're right, I wasn't clear. I've changed the post now. I made this when I shaped the rest of the batch into a loaf. The difference is that I let the loaf rise, but this went straight into the refrigerator and then oven with no pan rise.
