The thought had crossed my mind (before I found the above quote) that it would be a shame to gather all that wonderfulness in one spot but never use it. So last night I actually used a recipe I found through the cyber bulletin boards. It was quick and simple and completely delicious. Have you ever had Monkey Bread? You know, that gooey sweet concoction with biscuits, sugar and cinnamon. Well this pull apart bread is like it's savory cousin.
Mind you I did
For all the rest of my cheater slacker friends here is my modified recipe for Cheesy Parmesan Pull Apart Bread
1/4 cup melted butter (I actually used a little more than half a stick)
2 Pillsbury Crusty French Loaves
2 Gloves minced garlic (again I used a little more than the recipe called for because really can you have too much garlic? Never mind, don't answer that. It's a rhetorical question because I already know that it can happen if one happens to be confused about the differences between heads of garlic and gloves of garlic.)
1/4 cup of fresh shredded parmesan cheese
Next, cut one loaf of the bread dough into chunks and coat with the butter mixture.
Layer the pieces in a bundt cake pan that has been coated with non stick cooking spray. Sprinkle some of the parmesan cheese over the bread.
Repeat with the other loaf of french bread dough. Or get a cute helper so that you can take pictures.
Bake at 350* for 25 to 30 minutes.
Let it cool in the pan for fifteen minutes before turning out onto a plate. As you can see from my picture I didn't quite wait long enough but it still tasted very very good.
