Mozzarella Stuffed Garlic Monkey Bread is a savory twist on sweet monkey bread. It makes a great appetizer or side dish to eat with dinner.
Weeknights can be pretty hectic when you have a family. Sometimes you don’t have an hour or more to spend prepping dinner in the kitchen. You just want something easy to prepare that you can put in the oven to bake. That’s when convenient frozen meals like STOUFFER’S® lasagna are great to have in the freezer. The perfect side to eat with the lasagna is my easy Mozzarella Stuffed Garlic Monkey Bread.
To prepare for a busy week, I went grocery shopping at Walmart. I needed to pick up a frozen dinner option and ingredients to make my Mozzarella Stuffed Garlic Monkey Bread. I choose to gather around the goodness of STOUFFER’S® Large Family Size Lasagna with Meat & Sauce for our dinner. Ibotta is currently offering a great rebate on STOUFFER’S®. If you buy two family size or bigger 28 oz. entrees, you can earn $2.00.
STOUFFER’S® Large Family Size Lasagna with Meat & Sauce is obviously great for families with each box containing seven servings. The lasagna features freshly made pasta layered between a rich meat sauce and topped with real mozzarella. One of my favorite aspects about the meal is that there are no preservatives. It’s a great option for busy weekday nights since you just need to place it in the oven to bake.
Of course, a lasagna dinner is never complete without garlic bread. My Mozzarella Stuffed Garlic Monkey Bread is the perfect addition to the meal. It is easy to make and it only takes a short amount of time to prepare before putting it in the oven.
