Have you ever heard of monkey bread? It’s a type of bread made by baking many small balls of yeast dough in a pan with a sweet or savory sauce. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, let’s make it that much easier by using canned biscuits. We have a preference for Grands canned biscuits but you can use any brand that you like.
