Roasted Garlic Parmesan Monkey Bread


Roasted garlic butter-olive oil with parmesan, parsley and Italian seasonings baked together than pull apart and dip in marinara sauce or tomato soup.
This is a savory version of a monkey that is normally in a caramel and cinnamon like sauce. It is the same thing that you can pull apart and munch on it.
The holidays are coming up and this would be perfect for the friends and family that come over. Make this as an appetizer for your guess with a little tomato sauce or make this dinner with soup before the major eating.

You get the slight sweetness from the roasted garlic and saltiness from the parmesan. Its making my mouth water just writing about it.
