Sausage and Cheese Monkey Bread

Yesterday was Super Bowl Sunday. I did not plan on watching the game and I know better than to head to the grocery store to shop. I looked in my fridge and found all of these ingredients just waiting to be combined into a really fast and fun, hot mess. It's like Sausage pizza in a bundt pan and a heck of a lot easier to make.

Sausage and Cheese Monkey Bread
2 rolls of refrigerator big biscuits
8 oz of shredded mozzarella cheese
4 fully cooked sausage links of your choice, quartered lenguise and chopped into small pieces
Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
1 TBSP each of dried spices of your choice including oregano, basil, parsley flakes, garlic powder and dill
Freshly ground pepper and optionally salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray the bunt pan with cooking spray and brush all surfaces of the pan with a pastry brush to ensure it's well coated.
Set aside.

Unwrap the biscuits, separate them and cut each one into quarters.

Drizzle some EVOO (Olive oil) onto a plate and roll the biscuit pieces a few at a time in the oil to coat.
Put the dried spices in a plastic ziploc bag, shake well to blend and place a few of the oil coated biscuit quarters in the bag.
Shake gently to coat and remove and place in the oiled bundt pan.
Add pieces of sausage and toss on some of the cheese. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper (and salt if desired).
Repeat in layers until all of the biscuits, sausage and cheese are used.

Bake for 30 - 35 minutes until golden brown and a tester inserted comes out clean.

Run a knife around the outer and inner edge of the bundt pan to loosen the bread and then flip into a platter and serve immediately. The crust should be good and brown on the outside.

The bread will pull apart easily into bite sized chunks with your fingers or use a fork if sharing in a group.

Pizza sauce, dips and other sauces can be served with the bread for dunking (optional).

Note: If there are leftovers, monkey bread can be wrapped in foil and stored in the fridge. Reheat on a plate covered with a damp paper towel in the microwave on high for 1.5 - 2 minutes until hot.
