Mini Garlic Monkey Breads

I love this time of the year . . . when everyone is posting their top recipes for the previous year.  It gives us a chance to see the recipes we might have missed and it allows us to see the very favorites!  I love to see the blog owner's favorite recipes, because out of all the recipes we/they made out of an entire year, to have one be the top, it must be very very yummy!  These garlic monkey breads were Real Mom Kitchen's favorite bread recipe from 2011.  

They turned out really good and they were so easy to make.  I was worried that the garlic flavor was going to be overpowering, but it wasn't at all.  In fact, next time, I might even add a tiny bit more garlic.  I served these alongside this amazing Tomato Basil Parmesan soup and loved it, but I think they would be so good with spaghetti or lasagna too. 
Mini Garlic Monkey Breads
adapted from: Real Mom Kitchen

2 (7.5 oz) cans buttermilk biscuits
6 Tbl. butter, melted
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbl. dried parsley flakes
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
    plus 2 Tbl. to sprinkle on top

Cut biscuits into 4 pieces and place in a bowl.  Combine remaining ingredients and pour over biscuit pieces.  Gently toss to evenly coat.  Use a greased 12-cup muffin tin and place 6-7 pieces in each cup.  Sprinkle remaining 2 Tablespoons of cheese over the top.  Bake at 400 degrees for 12-14 minutes.  Serve warm.  Makes 12.  

Jenn's Notes:  I used jumbo buttermilk biscuits, so I ended up cutting each biscuit into 6 pieces.  I thought the garlic flavor was pretty mild, which would be perfect for kids, but for myself, I think I will add a tiny bit more next time.

  16. I am getting ready to make these but have a question. Since you used the jumble biscuits did you still use 2 cans?

    1. Yes, if you are making the full batch, use two cans (even if they are jumbo). I just mentioned I used the Jumbo, because I had to cut them into more pieces than the recipe suggested. - Jenn

    1. Priya - Here is my favorite buttermilk biscuit recipe. I would reduce the sugar slightly when using for the garlic monkey bread. http://eatcakefordinner.blogspot.com/2011/04/my-go-to-buttermilk-biscuit-recipe.html

  30. I love this recipe, however, I would add a lot more garlic and salt to bring out the buttery flavor a little more. I love the sweetness and crispiness the biscuits have, would make these again!

      The above link will take you to my favorite buttermilk biscuit recipe that I have also used to make mini monkey breads. I would just make sure to add a little less sugar when making this garlic version. -Jenn

  32. I used cut up crescent rolls since I didn't have any biscuits and added some garlic powder. My only complain was that the tops got a little too done before the inside got done. That might have just been the crescent rolls though (will try again with biscuits).

    1. That sounds yummy with the crescents! I would definitely try again with the biscuits. Did you use garlic powder instead of the minced garlic or in addition to the minced garlic? -Jenn

  33. Silly question-- you say to tear the biscuits into 4 pieces, but later say to put 6-7 pieces in each cup. I might be suffering from major sleep depravation, but.... I don't get it???

    1. Hi - If you use regular-size biscuits, you need to cut each biscuit into four pieces. Put all of those pieces into one bowl and combine with other ingredients. Then, take 6 or 7 of the individual pieces you just cut up and put in the muffin tin. So, let's say the two cans of biscuits have five biscuits in each can. That means, you have 10 biscuits. If you cut each biscuit into four pieces, you will end up with 40 pieces. Then, you add 6-7 pieces to each muffin tin, so you will end up with around five or six mini monkey breads. Does that make more sense? If you use jumbo-size muffins, you can cut those into 6 pieces since they are so big and then you could have one monkey bread per biscuit. Let me know if that still doesn't make sense - Jenn

  34. O.M.G.! These look incredible, and there is no such thing as too much garlic IMHO. I can't wait to try these. I just might this weekend since I have these ingredients on hand! Yay!

  35. These were so good! My kids loved them. I took your sugestion and added more garlic, I think about 6 cloves total instead of 3 and I think that was perfect.

  36. So amazing! Thank you for posting. I had to adapt it a little to accommodate what I had in my kitchen. I used basil instead of parsley, and a little shredded mozzarella instead of parmesan. Still soo good!!

  37. I melted the butter and pressed the garlic and mixed together and let set before I added the cheese then biscuits. I let the biscuits set in the butter mixture for 10 or 15 minutes before putting into pan. These were awesome!!!!

    1. I haven't, but I think you could use it. It just won't be as flavorful as Parmesan.
