Homemade Bread Day

I don't make yeast breads; just quick breads.  One of the most fun is monkey bread.  You can make it savory or sweet.  Each starts with 2 cans refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, each biscuit cut in halves or quarters.  Roll in 3/4 cup melted butter. Then in 1/2 cup sugar & cinnamon mix for sweet version or add herbs to butter for a savory version.  Each of these can be embellished with chopped nuts or grated cheeses, etc. Spray a 12-cup fluted tube pan and arrange biscuit pieces in pan. Bake at 350°F for 28 to 32 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool a bit and then invert onto a serving plate; pull apart to serve.
