Savory Monkey Bread

Yield 10 to 12 Servings


  • 18 Rhodes White Dinner Rolls (thawed, but still cold)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 cup chopped dried cranberries (with fresh cracked black pepper, optional)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Place Rhodes White Dinner Rolls on a large greased baking sheet covered in sprayed plastic wrap until rolls are thawed, but still cold. (About 1 1/2 to 2 hours at room temperature, or overnight in the refrigerator.)
  2. Cut rolls into fourths with kitchen shears.
  3. Melt butter in the microwave, about 30-45 seconds. Add the minced garlic and salt. Stir well.
  4. Prepare toppings in separate bowls. Dip each piece of dough into the butter, and then coat with a single topping. Layer coated dough pieces in a heavily greased bundt pan. (Grease the bundt pan with cooking spray or butter.) Cover the bundt pan with sprayed plastic wrap and let rise for 30 minutes.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 35 minutes or until golden brown, and dough is baked where pieces touch together. Delicious warm. Optional: Serve with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping. Store leftovers in a zip-top bag or airtight container.
