I have always enjoyed a good morning Monkey Bread.  Soon after getting married, a friend of mine was over helping me get ready for a Christmas party.  She asked why you couldn’t make a Monkey Bread with savory ingredients.  We laughed it off at first, but then as we grew tired of baking and cooking, we decided we had nothing to lose by creating a recipe and giving it a try.  I don’t really recommend trying new recipes or experimenting before a party, but I have to say, I have had some pretty good luck with doing just that.  This recipe is a perfect example!  I have even been known to throw in a little browned Italian sausage for a heartier version.  I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as my friend and I have.


Shana Chaplin: Italian Monkey Bread


  • 12-16 Frozen Dinner Yeast Rolls (I use Kroger brand)
  • 1 stick of melted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Basil
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • 2 Teaspoons Fresh Rosemary
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan Chees


  1. Grease a Bundt pan.
  2. Place the frozen dinner yeast rolls in a gallon size storage bag.
  3. Pour ¼ a cup of the melted butter over the frozen rolls.
  4. Add the garlic powder and herbs, along with the shredded Parmesan.
  5. Seal the storage bag and shake vigorously.
  6. Dump the herb covered frozen rolls into the greased Bundt pan. Make sure you distribute them evenly over the bottom of the pan.
  7. Pour the remaining ¾ cup of melted butter over the top of the rolls.
  8. Place the Bundt pan on a baking sheet. Let sit overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  9. Once the rolls have risen, bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes.
  10. You may have to cover the top of the Bundt pan to keep the top layer of rolls from browning too much.
  11. Once baked, remove from the oven.
  12. Gently loosen the top edge of rolls from the edge of the Bundt pan.
  13. Let cool for 10 minutes. Invert onto a serving platter.


This dish is best served fresh from the oven, but will keep for up to two days. A great side for any pasta dish.

Growing up my Momma was the main cook in our house. She was a great cook however, as us kids got older the cooking duties shifted to us. The best times were when my Daddy took the cooking duties for the night. Those times quickly became my favorite (sorry Momma!) because it meant I could spend a little extra time with my Daddy without my sisters.

My Daddy seem to pull things out of thin air and make a meal. My Momma was also very good at this but Daddy was a master at it. I remember one time, he took rice (Riceland was also used in my parent’s house), cream of mushroom soup, and ground hamburger. He called it S.O.S. I am sure most of y’all know exactly what that means. There are many times I have pulled this one out and used to Glitter’s delight.

I would say the best one of his recipes was for his ugly biscuits.  My sisters and I called them this because these biscuits weren’t going win any beauty contests. It follows the saying it may not look pretty, but it sure tastes delicious. Daddy was not much of a baker, but these turned out so good. There was kind of a standing order for the biscuits every month.

Julie Kohl – Easy Artisan Bread in Under an Hour

March 17, 2017

by Julie Kohl I love fresh, warm, just out of the oven bread. I always lamented the fact that we didn’t have a local bakery and for years went without fresh bread mostly, because I thought it was really hard to make. Turns out that it doesn’t have to be. I came across this recipe […]

by Jodi Coffee, Miss March 2016 I have come to accept that I have a type-A personality living in a type-B world. Maybe it’s selective type A-ism. I don’t know. I thought I would share five things that I want MY way. This is not an end-all be-all list, and tomorrow’s list may be different […]
