Great monkey bread! I tagged this recipe for the Use It or Lose It Bargain Basement tag game. I halved the recipe using one (16 oz) can of Grands biscuits cut in 1/8s. This made a great breakfast! Since I halved it, I put in a smallish casserole dish. I had to cook for about 10 more minutes, during which time I covered it to keep from getting overdone on top.
