Garlic-Cheese Monkey Bread

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Pixie

Let the breadmaker do the work and then turn it into garlic-oregano-cheese "monkey" bread. Can be done layered in a loaf pan or flat-out in a pizza pan...

Good recipe. Yields a very nice dough that I could also see using for breadsticks or savoury rolls. 4 stars instead of 5 because I had to coat the dough balls with some olive oil in order to get the topping to adhere. A+ for flavor & ease of preparation. I am going to try fresh garlic in the monkey topping next time and mozarella instead of cheddar. Your recipe has given me some great ideas for creative bread! Thanks.
