Lots of us know how great Gooseberry Patch cookbooks are! And, this new one is so fun especially entering Farmer's Market season! Our local farmers have a new idea that I'm trying - they all list their produce in one spot online and we can go in and place our order by Wednesday and then pick it up on Friday!
This past week I picked up milk, eggs, beef, carrots, lettuce, blueberries, pizza dough and basil butter so I wanted to pick out a recipe that used mostly ingredients I got from local farmers!
Savory Monkey Bread
2 c. finely shredded Parmesan Cheese
2 T. fresh basil, chopped
2 T. fresh rosemary, chopped
2-1/2 t. garlic, minced
1/4 c. butter, melted
2 12-oz. tubes refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (I don't really like refrigerated biscuits unless I'm making donuts, so I substituted 1 lb. of bread dough which is what I do for sweet monkey bread as well)
In a bowl, mix together cheese, herbs and garlic. Place melted butter in a separate bowl. Cut dough or biscuits into pieces; dip into butter and coat with cheese mixture. Arrange biscuits in a prepared loaf pan overlapping slightly. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes, until golden.
In place of the butter and herbs, I had some garlic basil butter that I got at the Farmer's Market and I substituted that!
I made a salad with some of local lettuce and put some grilled chicken in it with this yummy bread on the side.
