Are you going to a superbowl party this weekend? I am! I was pondering what to bring for the feast, and I thought something you can eat with your hands would be ideal, and monkey bread popped into my mind. Usually this is a sweet treat (our Chai Monkey Bread Recipe and Lemon Monkey Bread Recipe are favorites), but I thought it could be just as fun and maybe even more delicious in a savory version.
I grabbed some pesto and sun dried tomatoes from the pantry, and a little cheese, and got to work. This recipe is surprisingly simple to make, but will look very impressive to your party going friends.
Most importantly, it’s delicious. Get our Savory Pesto Monkey Bread Recipe after the jump…
Savory Pesto Monkey Bread Recipe
Pesto, about 1/2 to 3/4 cup
Sun dried tomatoes, about 1/2 cup
Mozarella cheese, about 1/2 cup
Parmesan cheese, about 1/8 cup
Biscuit dough – make it your self or use a couple pop-can pre made biscuits for easy cookin’
Butter, 2 tbls, melted
Pre-heat your oven to 350.
In a bowl, add pesto, sun dried tomatoes, and both cheeses. Stir to combine.
Flatten a biscuit round and scoop a spoonful of filling into it.
Fold in half and carefully pinch the edges closed.
Brush the melted butter on all sides of a bundt pan, then place each dough pocket into the pan with the pinched side facing up.
Brush the top with more melted butter, then place in the middle rack of your oven. Set your timer for 15 minutes.
Check the bread after 15 minutes. Your savory pesto monkey bread is done when the top is light to golden brown. This took me about 22 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
Once the bread is completely cool, turn it out onto a cake stand or platter.
Grab a section and gobble it up.
So tasty, so simple, and so yummy. Enjoy!
