Mini Garlic Monkey Bread

This Mini Garlic Monkey Bread is made from biscuits and is a great side to any meal.Mini Garlic Monkey Bread - the-girl-who-ate-everything.comToday I’m sharing this Mini Garlic Monkey Bread from the Six Sisters’ new cookbook, A Year with Six Sisters’ Stuff: 52 Menu Plans, Recipes, and Ideas to Bring Families Together.

We have 5 sisters in my family and I can only image how having six could take the sisterhood to a whole new level. If you guys are like me, I’m immediately turned off by recipes with a long list of ingredients.

I’m all about getting it done with the least amount of work as possible while still including fresh ingredients. I loved their cookbook and they have menu plans all lined up so you don’t have to worry about what to pair with what. This makes a great gift. I just gave this to my friend for her birthday.

The sisters gave me permission to share this Mini Garlic Monkey Bread recipe with you today from their cookbook. I had these in the oven in less than five minutes and it always makes dinner more special with fancy bread to accompany it.

If anyone reading this has the time to add fresh herbs instead of the dried, I think it would take the flavor up a notch and make these out of this world! That was my only regret after making these (I had the fresh parsley on hand!). I’m definitely going to try fresh herbs next time.

  215. Made the garlic monkey bread (for company) Tasted OK, but the butter ran out into the oven,so had a lot of smoke and worry.
