Monkey Bread

Let's be honest, using your hands to cook and to eat is just fun.  For some reason food tastes better when you don't have to use flatware to get it to your mouth!  This is a Paula Deen recipe has become a family favorite at mealtime not only because it tastes so good (full of butter), but you can pull the bread apart with your hands.

2 sticks melted butter butter, divided
1-1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
2 cans refrigerated biscuits
1 tablespoon shortening

 Melt the two sticks of butter in separate pans.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Lightly grease a 12-cup Bundt pan with shortening.

In a small bowl, combine 1 cup of the Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning.

Roll each individual biscuit into a ball. Dip each piece in the 1 stick of melted butter, then coat with the cheese mixture. Place dough ball into prepared pan; overlapping will occur.

Bake bread, 30 to 35 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil during the last 10 minutes of baking to prevent excess browning, if needed.

Let cool in pan, 10 minutes; invert bread onto a serving plate. Drizzle remaining stick of melted butter on top and sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
