Egg bread that is rolled into balls, dipped in garlic butter and coated with herbs to make this savory Herbed Monkey Bread
  • Bread
  • 1 1/2 packages yeast
  • 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cups butter - melted
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 5 – 6 cups flour
  • Garlic Butter Dip
  • 1/2 butter
  • 2 - 4 garlic cloves - minced
  • Toppings
  • Sesame seeds
  • Poppy seeds
  • Parsley
  • Dill
  1. Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water.
  2. Beat eggs in a bowl and add the sugar and beat well. Add melted butter, milk, hot water and salt. Mix well and add yeast.
  3. Stir in 1 cup flour and beat until smooth. Add remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead until smooth. Cover and let rise until doubled.
  4. Melt butter in a saucepan. Add minced garlic. Remove from heat.
  5. Chop parsley and dill. Put the sesame seeds and poppy seeds in bowls.
  6. Grease an angel food pan with cooking spray. Weigh out 1 1/2 lbs. of dough. This is slightly more than half if you don't have a way to weigh it. Cut the dough into walnut sized balls, dip into the butter and then one of the toppings. Put them in the pan. I did 2 rolls of the dough balls. Pour a little of the garlic butter over the top of the rolls. Cover and let rise until doubled.
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for about 30 - 35 minutes or until lightly browned. Let set a few minutes after you take it out of the oven. Then very carefully remove the outside rim. I left the bottom on and put it on a wire rack to slightly cool. Remove to your serving dish when read to serve.
