Cheesy Monkey Bread

Cheesy Monkey Bread


• 4 Turano French Rolls (cubed)
• 4 tbsp Butter (softened)
• 2 bulbs of garlic
• 2 2/3 cups grated swiss cheese
• 2 2/3 cups grated mozzarella cheese
• 1/2 cup olive oil
• 4 tbsp parsley (finely chopped)
• 1 tbsp fresh thyme
• Salt and pepper to taste


① Preheat oven to 350°F. Slice the top off of the bulb of garlic and rub it all over with olive oil. Wrap the bulb in aluminum foil and roast on a baking sheet for 40 minutes.
② While the garlic is roasting, cube French Rolls and toss with melted butter and set aside. Then prepare the cheese mixture: Crush the cloves of garlic and add to a large bowl along with the cheeses, olive oil, parsley, thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir everything together and set aside. Once the garlic has finished roasting, squeeze the cloves from the bulb into the cheese mixture and stir to combine.
③ Start by buttering the sides of the bundt pan, then place a thin layer of the cheese mixture around the bottom and sides, add a layer of bread cubes, top with the cheese mixture and repeat until the pan is full. Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, until the top is a deep, golden brown.
④ Let the bread cool for five minutes before inverting onto a platter. Serve immediately – and eat carefully. It will be hot!
