This is the savory monkey bread recipe I promised you all a few weeks ago. This recipe is wildly popular with my family – my cousin Kathleen half-jokingly threatens to not come to family dinners unless monkey bread will be served.

When I went to make this recipe, my mom and I discovered something – one of the crucial ingredients (pinch of herbs) was no longer in production! Sadness. Luckily, my mom has a culinary genius friend, and she suggested Herbs From Provence. I didn’t tell my taste testers that the recipe was different before I made it. A true blind taste test! I had a nervous stomach.

Savory Monkey Bread

you need:


1 1/2 sticks salted butter
1 tsp. Herbs From Provence
4 packages buttermilk biscuits

melt the butter

Melt your 1/2 pound of butter

add herbs

Add your herbs, mix well

open the biscuits

Open your biscuits. I hate opening these things, they always explode when I least expect it. IN MY FACE.

soak the biscuits in butter

Soak the biscuits in your butter/herb mixture. Use tongs – the butter is hot. I used ice tongs from my bartender set, because that’s how I roll.

layer the biscuits in the pan.

Layer the butter-soaked biscuits in your bundt pan.

pour butter over biscuits

Pour butter over the biscuits. You can pour half of what’s left and save the other half to pour over your cooked biscuits, or you can do it all at once. My mom suggests all at once because the biscuits absorb the butter.

delicious buttery yumminess

Mmmmmmmm, butter.


Bake the biscuits on the lowest rack in your oven at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown.

flip out!

Carefully flip your biscuits onto a platter. There might still be some super-hot butter in the pan so seriously, be careful.

Savory monkey bread goes GREAT with Thanksgiving Dinner. I will be making it again next week!!!
