Non-Gooey Monkey Bread —Four Ingredients!

Non-Gooey Monkey Bread —Four Ingredients!

I have a bad habit of assuming that I remember how to make basic fare.  So things occurred this morning when I woke up a bit earlier than normal and thought that Monkey Bread sounded delicious.

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees, and get out a 9 inch round cake pan.

1/2 cup melted butter

1 tube Flaky Biscuits (8 count)  The Butter and the Honey Butter varieties are the best for these!

1-2 tablespoons of cinnamon (depending on your preference)

1 cup of sugar

First pour 2-3 tablespoons of melted butter into the bottom of your pan and spread it around until it has covered the bottom.

Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a cereal sized bowl.  Cut each biscuit into quarters.

Proceed to dip each piece into the butter and into the sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Place each piece along the edges of the pan first, not tightly, but touching each other.  GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Make an inner circle, again touching but no squishing.

Keep a circle open in the middle.  This is where our creation expands in the oven. GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Drizzle the remaining butter over the top of the biscuits.

Put them in the oven for 25-28 minutes.

I peeked!

Run a knife around the inside of the pan to loosen the bread and plop upside down on a large plate, or a cutting board.

Accidents do happen!

Never leave good butter behind! I did wash the counter for before the spill. 🙂

Enjoy!

Are you CRAVING Thanksgiving dinner?

I am already craving the Feast that is ahead this month.  So to fill the need of my stomach with speed I tossed some ingredients in a pot and came up with this beauty!DSCN0233

Thanksgiving Dinner Soup

Serves 4

Time:15 minutes

2 T Butter

1/2 cup diced onion

2 sticks chopped celery

1 large thinly sliced carrot

2 cups shredded chicken

2 cups water

2 cups milk

3 t. chicken boullion

1/2 t thyme

1 1/2 t ground sage

1 t poultry seasoning

Topping:

1 prepared package of Turkey Stove Top

Saute the vegetable in the butter until tender, about 5 minutes.  Add in chicken, water, milk and spices.  Bring to a boil.  Prepare the Stove Top as directed on the box.  I make this in a microwave safe container in 5 minutes tops.  Ladle “soup” into bowls and top with a generous serving spoon of stuffing.  I like each bite of soup to have some stuffing accompanying it, that way the soup doesn’t feel like it is meeting its doom all by itself. 🙂  Happy Early Celebrating!DSCN0232           Before Topped with StuffingDSCN0234The Final Product
