Cheese Stuffed Monkey Bread
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herbs (or your favorite herb)
  • 2 pounds pizza dough
  • 6 to 8 ounces cheese cut into 48 cubes
  • Cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray Bundt pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a small saute pan, melt butter. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Stir in herbs. Keep warm.
  3. Divide dough into 48 sections (a cooking scale is really handy for this!). Pat each section of dough into a small circle and place a cheese cube in the center. Wrap the dough around the cheese cube, pinching at any seams, to form a ball. Brush the ball with garlic butter and place in prepared baking pan. Repeat with remaining dough, cheese and garlic butter.
  4. Cover pan with a clean kitchen towel and let sit for 30 minutes. Place in preheated oven and bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until dough is golden brown. Remove from oven to a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes and then invert on to serving platter. Serve immediately!
Best served warm. Adjust the amount of cheese more/less depending on desired cheesiness.
