I have never made monkey bread before but my friend Nancy used to make it. This is not sweet and I’m not sure why they even called it monkey bread it wasn’t really anything like what my friend used to make, but that’s what the recipe I converted from called it. I think I’d tend to call it a biscuit bake. Everyone liked it except me… I only thought it was ok. But, I will make it again, it was pretty easy and a real crowd pleaser. I would change what I did a little…I made it in an small baking dish (approximately 8 X 11, totally a guess, but I know it was small than a 9X13). Next time I think I will spread it onto a jelly roll pan/edged cookie sheet, I thought it was a little too biscuity/doughy and thick. It might not be enough to “fill” the baking sheet but I think I’ll try it.
1 recipe of your favorite biscuit dough cut into 1 inch pieces (I used Angel Biscuits from my Thanksgiving eBook)
8 oz crumbled breakfast sausage
2 apples, peeled and diced
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Grease baking dish.
In a medium skillet cook the sausage about halfway through, add the apples and continue cooking until the sausage is cooked through. Toss the sausage mixture with the biscuit pieces. Spread into baking sheet. Sprinkle cheese on top. Bake for 15-25 minutes depending on the size of your baking dish. When I used the 8X11 I baked 20 minutes and then I checked it and baked 5 more minutes.
