  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cans (16.3 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Flaky Layers Original Biscuits (8 Count)
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan or mozzarella cheese (4 oz)
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (2 medium cloves)


  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 6-cup (9-inch) fluted tube cake pan or angel food (tube) cake pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large food-storage plastic bag, mix grated Parmesan, salt and pepper. Separate each can of dough into 8 biscuits; cut each into quarters. Place biscuit pieces in Parmesan mixture; shake well.
  • 3
    Layer biscuit pieces and shredded cheese in pan.
  • 4
    In small bowl, mix melted butter and garlic with whisk. Drizzle over biscuits and cheese in pan.
  • 5
    Bake 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Place plate upside down over pan; turn plate and pan over. Remove pan. Serve warm.

  • Get Cheesy! Instead of shredded Parmesan or mozzarella, layer your biscuits with shredded Cheddar or pepper Jack cheese for a new flavor twist!
  • Fresh chopped basil makes a beautiful garnish for this savory monkey bread!
  • To make single servings of this recipe (as seen in the photo), place Parmesan-coated biscuit pieces in small ramekins. Drizzle with butter-garlic mixture. Bake at 350°F for 15 to 10 minutes or just until golden brown and bubbly. Cool before serving.
