How to Make Savory Monkey Bread

by in Food Network Magazine, November 2nd, 2013

savory monkey breadInstead of passing the breadbasket on Thanksgiving, serve this fun pull-apart loaf: Brush a tube pan with olive oil and put four or five toppings in small bowls (we used shredded cheddar, paprika, chopped dill, parsley and almonds). Form refrigerated breadstick dough into small balls (you’ll need three 11-ounce tubes), then roll each ball in a topping. Arrange the balls in the pan, drizzling with olive oil between layers. Drizzle with more olive oil and bake at 350 degrees F until golden, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes in the pan before serving.

You can assemble the bread in the morning: Just cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Uncover and bake while your turkey rests.
