Ham & Cheddar Monkey Bread with Honey-Mustard Sauce

This is one tasty ring. And thanks to refrigerated biscuit dough and scallion-garlic butter, this savory monkey bread is super easy and addictively good. Everyone loves monkey bread — bites of biscuit or bread dough doused in gooey sweetness. But this savory version rivals the classic. It’s cheesy and meaty, and oh-so-good.

Test Kitchen Tip

To make these savory casseroles ahead, assemble, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Before baking, set +casseroles on the counter while oven is preheating.


Preheat oven to 350°. Generously coat a 10- to 15-cup Bundt pan with nonstick spray.

Melt butter with scallion whites and light greens and garlic in a saucepan over medium heat. Off heat, stir in 1 Tbsp. honey, 1 Tbsp. Dijon, salt, and cayenne.

Toss dough pieces with butter mixture until coated. Stir in Cheddar, ham, and scallion greens until evenly dispersed; transfer to prepared pan.

Bake monkey bread until golden brown and a thermometer inserted into center registers 195–200°, about 45 minutes. (Cover with foil if browning too quickly.)

Whisk together 2 Tbsp. honey, 2 Tbsp. Dijon, and mayonnaise for the sauce.

Cool monkey bread in pan 10 minutes before loosening edges and turning out onto a serving plate; serve with sauce.

    This is the average rating for this recipe, relative to the average rating of all of the recipes on this site. The average rating of all the recipes on this site is 11.33. If we pin the population average to 3 (define 3 as the new 11.33) and adjust this particular recipe's average accordingly, we see that, relative to a population average of 3, this recipe's adjusted standardized average is 5.00. This number is useful in that it accounts for how different people have different interpretations of the rating system.
  • Median: 5
    This is the rating that is in the middle of the ratings distribution. It is generally more indicative of how much you will actually like this recipe than the average because the average is subject to being skewed by outliers.
  • Mode: 5
    This is the most common rating that people have given this recipe.
  • Standard Deviation: None
    This is a measure of how polarizing the recipe is; how much people disagree about it.
    0 is the least polarizing; everyone agrees on the rating.
