Quartered refrigerated biscuits tossed with freshly grown garlic and basil, alsong with butter and Parmesan cheese to make this delicious savory Monkey Bread!

It feels like spring FINALLY around here and I am DYING to get into my garden and start some veggies and herbs this year! The amazing people at Scott's sent me along some Organic Choice and Miracle-Gro Learn And Grow soil to get started this season. I live in Central Pennsylvania and it's SO tempted right now to get out there and plant, we still have temps close to 30 degrees some nights - that would not be good for those poor tomatoes!

We're in a new house this summer and there's a school playset a few yards from our back gate so I KNOW we'll be spending practically the whole summer out there while the boys play. It will give me plenty of time to weed, water, and harvest - I've been known to do none of these in the past with plants, haha! 
I've read that both basil and spinach are great at keeping the buggies away from vegetable plants and since we eat so much of both, I'm definitely putting those in the ground. I'd love to have a few different tomato varieites, cucumbers, and peppers out there too. The Organic Choice soil is perfect for edible gardening - why spend oodles of money on organic groceries at the store, when you can grow your own right in your backyard?! 

There she is - my beautiful little basil plant! I'm really loving this organic soil, and I can't wait to put this little bugger in the ground in a few weeks!

This Parmesan, Garlic, & Basil Monkey Bread will be one of the first things I make with my garden herbs - it's such a different twist on the classic, sweet pull-apart bread. This would go perfect with a pasta dish!

Parmesan, Garlic, & Basil Monkey Bread

17oz can Grands biscuits (I used Homestyle Wheat)
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups shredded parmesan cheese
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped fine
1/2 tablespoon dried thyme

In a medium bowl, mix together parmesan, garlic, basil, and thyme. In a smaller shallow bowl, pour melted butter. Cut each biscuit into four pieces, dip each piece in butter, roll in cheese mixture, and place in the bottom of a greased bundt pan. Repeat for all remaning biscuits, placing coated biscuit pieces on top of one another inside the bundt pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully remove bread from pan and cool on a wire rack until ready to serve.

What's your favorite tip for growing backyard veggies and herbs? What soil/materials do you use most? I'm open for any and all suggestions this year!

    I agree, Jen!

  3. I love making monkey bread but have only made the sweet variety but this one looks fantastic! Since I live in Florida we have basil and thyme almost year round (although the summer is really hard on the plants) & this will be a nice addition to my recipe list to use my fresh herbs. Thanks for sharing on Share Your Stuff Tuesdays. And good luck with the garden!

  4. this looks so tasty!! I enjoy basil myself :)
