I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love monkey bread. Although I most often think of it as a sweet treat–something I’d enjoy for breakfast. Well, this Cheesy Everything Monkey Bread is about to change the way you think about monkey bread!

Cheesy Everything Monkey Bread

This savory monkey bread takes all of your favorite everything bagel toppings, combines them with biscuit dough, butter, garlic and cheese for one amazing pull-apart bread creation!

Individual pieces of dough are coated in butter and garlic salt, then coated with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried minced onion, fresh parsley, and two kinds of cheese.

Not only does it taste amazing, it’s also makes for one beautiful pan of bread.

There are so many different and delicious flavors in this monkey bread, it was hard for me to say which topping was my favorite–but the sesame seeds and minced onions were definitely at the top of my list.

And don’t worry, you don’t have to use the exact toppings I did. You can easily switch up the herbs and cheeses and still have wonderful results. But I recommend using the everything bagel toppings.

One note about the poppy seeds: I found it worked better to sprinkle those on, rather than rolling the dough in them. Otherwise you’ll end up with a LOT of poppy seeds stuck to your bread.

This does make a big batch of monkey bread, so I recommend serving it to a larger group. Although we warmed up the leftovers the next day and they were still delicious.

But one thing is for sure, you’re going to love this buttery, savory seasoned bread!

Be sure to save this savory monkey bread recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.

  3. Dip each biscuit piece in butter and garlic mixture, then roll each ball in the desired coating and arrange the biscuits pieces in the prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 35-40 minutes until biscuits are done and surface is golden. Cover with foil during the last 10 minutes of cooking to prevent the top of the monkey bread from getting to dark.

  1. I’m not a huge fan of biscuits as anything other than biscuits but I think these would be great using frozen dinner rolls~thawed of course. Has anyone tried them?

  2. The ingredient listing calls for “1 (16-oz.) cans” — is it supposed to be 1 can or 2 cans? Thanks in advance for the clarification! Looking forward to trying this one.
