Garlic - Onion Mini Rolls

This recipe came about today basically by mistake, accident, expiration dates... you name it. Everything I tried to cook today threw me a curve in some way or another. Do you check the expiration date on all your groceries? I don't mean just the milk, eggs and meat... I mean everything! It seems like every time I come home from the grocery store for the last few months, something is close or past its sell date. The hubby brought home a bottle of Caesar salad dressing last month that expired in May of 2011! Today it was a 4 pk of canned biscuits that I bought to make monkey bread. Luckily, I had just bought a pizza dough to make a Chicken Caesar Pizza, and now that the dressing was expired, I could use it in place of the biscuits. It just wasn't enough dough to make monkey bread, so I came up with these little clouds of yumminess!!!

 I started with
pizza dough, raw and rounded into 1/2" balls
1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt

 Place the dough balls into the butter mixture
about 5 or 6 at the time.
Scoop them out with you fingers so some of the
onion and garlic bits
transfer to the greased baking dish.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 - 25 minutes.

Buttery little clouds of yumminess! 

Must have been pretty good... This is all that was left for me :-)

Here is the recipe as I intended it to be... But I like it better the way it turned out today! :-)

Garlic-Onion Monkey Bread Recipe

2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough or 24 frozen unbaked white dinner rolls, thawed
1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
Herb-seasoned olive oil, optional

Divide dough into 24 pieces. In a small bowl, combine the onion, butter, garlic, parsley and salt. Dip each piece of dough into butter mixture; place in a 10-in. fluted tube pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with olive oil if desired. Yield: 1 loaf (24 pieces).
