Waking up to ooey-gooey caramel monkey bread is an amazing start to the day. But how about a cheesy monkey bread? Wouldn't that make an excellent addition to your Italian dinners? (Actually, this savory pull-apart would be great with any meal.) With just a few simple ingredients, you will be on your way to an irresistible new family fave. 

Here's what you'll need. (You will also need butter, but I was so excited to make this that I forgot to add it to the picture!)

cheesy monkey bread ingredients

Using a pizza cutter, cut each biscuit into quarters. I do about a half a can at a time. Mix grated Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning in gallon-size bag. Shake biscuit quarters in the bag to coat each piece.

Put half of the seasoned biscuits in a greased fluted pan and then sprinkle with ½ cup of shredded mozzarella cheese.

Finish layering the rest of the seasoned biscuit pieces. Sprinkle with any extra seasoning mixture. Pour melted butter over biscuits and bake 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Turn the pan upside down on a plate. Pull individual pieces off of the loaf to serve with marinara dipping sauce. Enjoy!
