Chicago Magazine posted this video recipe back in January, but we stumbled upon it just in time for Easter. Chef Chris Pandel of The Bristol makes mini loaves of savory monkey bread with dill, butter and sea salt.
How perfect would that be with a baked ham or springtime greens?
Until now, we've only encountered the more traditional monkey bread – sticky sweet and usually made from canned biscuits. This recipe is something else entirely – monkey bread of the highest order.
And that's not surprising coming from a chef who has worked under Daniel Boulud and Rick Tramonto and is now chef and co-owner of one of Chicago's hottest new restaurants.
We can't wait to give this new savory version a try.
