Savory Monkey Bread

Servings 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


  • 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.)
  • Cut rolls into fourths with kitchen shears.
  • Melt butter in the microwave, about 30-45 seconds. Add the minced garlic and salt. Stir well.
  • 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.
  • 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.


- Feel free to customize the toppings to your liking. (Herbs, cheeses, etc.)
