How you ever tried making Monkey Bread in your cast iron skillet? I made this Monkey Bread using Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls, stuffed them with cream cheese, and baked them in my cast iron skillet. It turned out great! When you prepare Monkey Bread in a bundt pan, it takes a long time to cook. It took just 30 minutes to bake this Stuffed Monkey Bread in my cast iron skillet.
If I use my smaller bundt pan, it will over flow in the oven. By using my cast iron skillet and Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls, the Monkey Bread turns out perfect. You can just take out the amount that fits your skillet. I am using a large 10 inch cast iron skillet and 12 frozen dinner rolls. If I use my 8 inch cast iron skillet, I use 10 Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls. If you enjoy Monkey Bread, you will love baking it in your cast iron skillet and using frozen dinner rolls. If you have never tried cream cheese in the center of each Monkey Bread, you are definitely missing out on a fantastic treat.
When I prepare this bread the night before for the next day’s breakfast and then place it into the refrigerator, I make sure to set the cast iron skillet out of the refrigerate on the counter for one to two hours before baking. If you place a cold cast iron skillet in the oven, you may crack it.

Stuffing this delicious Monkey Bread reminds me of how we should stuff our lives with good things. The bible verse that came to my mind was Philippians 4:8.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things. To me this verse means, every movie we watch, every T.V. show we see, everything we hear, or basically everything we come in contact with, we need to ask ourselves if it is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, and praiseworthy. We should be stuffing our thoughts with things which are sweet to God. I pray we will all make a conscience effort to think about the things we think about.

I believe the secret to building stronger families that stick together, communicate more, and love each other is to cook together, eating around the table together, play together, vacation together, and share God’s love.
