Recipe: Garlic Parmesan Monkey Bread

I made this as a snack for the Super Bowl. I got the idea from Pinterest, but didn’t follow a particular recipe. This is optimized for a toaster oven setup. Here’s approximately what I did:


  • 8 count can of Homestyle Grands biscuits
  • 1/2 cup or so of freshly grated parmesan cheese – you want the fresh so it’ll melt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. of minced garlic – if you get the stuff already minced and bottled in olive oil, use a little of the oil, too
  • 1 tsp. of garlic salt – I used a specialty spice store version, so it had extra herbs in it, too
  • 1/2 stick or 1/4 cup of butter (or so)


  • Large mixing bowl
  • Spatula
  • 9×11″ (or whatever the standard size is) bread pan for baking
  • Pan for melting butter


Preheat toaster oven to 375 degrees. Mix together the parmesan cheese, minced garlic, and garlic salt or herbs as you will in the large mixing bowl. Melt the butter in a pan on your stovetop/hot plate. Quarter each of the Grands biscuits and toss the pieces in the garlic/parmesan mixture until thoroughly coated. Pour a little bit of the melted butter into the bread pan and coat the bottom. Place the coated biscuits into the bread pan and spread evenly. Pour the remaining melted butter over the top of the biscuits. Bake for 28 to 31 minutes until the whole top is at least golden brown. Some bits will be more browned than others. Remove from oven and let sit for a couple of minutes before serving.
