Savory Monkey Bread

If you have followed my blog very long you will know that I love making recipes that are fast and easy and look like a million bucks! This is just such a recipe.

I saw a Taste of Home recipe for pull-apart garlic bread. The cook sharing the recipe is Carol Shields, from Summerville Pennsylvania.  Five ingredients, prep time 10 minutes, raise for 1 hour and bake for 30 minutes.

Savory Monkey Bread to bake

This bread is perfect to serve alongside Taste of Lasagna soup,  Crock Pot Creamy Chicken Spaghetti, or the dish of your choice!   If garlic is your favorite herb of choice then crank it up a notch and make this an over-the-top flavor buster bread!

Savory Monkey Bread PartialThe first time I made this I used one loaf frozen bread dough and it fit just right in a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan.  The second time I used 3 frozen loaves of bread dough and a 12″ x 14″ baking dish.  Both turned out perfect!

Happy Baking,

P.S.  I named this Savory Monkey Bread because it reminds me of making my sweet version. (Also known as Monkey Bread and the Sensitive Cook!)

  1. Hi! I’m excited to try your Savory Monkey Bread recipe. I noticed your note saying 3 loaves can fit into a 12×14 baking dish. I was wondering if 2 loaves can fit into a 9×13 dish? Or what size dish should I use for 2 loaves?

    • Hi Sue, I think 2 loaves in a 9″x13″ pan would be fine. The pieces may lay flat or you can use a smaller baking dish and stack them a little bit. Either way, it should work well. This is an awesome recipe! Happy baking!
