Pull apart bread with biscuits is the savory version of classic monkey bread. Instead of sweet sticky goodness, we’re coating ours with melted butter, dried onion, and herbs.

It’s a fantastic appetizer or easy side dish for dishes like crockpot steak bites and garlic parmesan chicken pasta. They’re fun to pull apart and eat, but they also come in handy when you need something to soak up any sauce on your plate.

Refrigerated biscuit dough, cubed butter, dill weed, onion flakes, and dried parsley.
  • Biscuit dough – Grab a 12-ounce tube of Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits from the refrigerator section. Cut the disks into quarters.
  • Butter – In this case salted butter is needed because we’re not adding any extra salt.

How to Make Pull Apart Bread with Biscuits

This section shows you how to make the recipe with step-by-step photos and instructions. For the full printable recipe, see the recipe card below.

Step 1: In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and seasoning. 

Step 2: Grab each one of the dough balls and roll them in the butter mixture. Place them in a prepared 9-inch glass baking dish. As you lay them down, they will be touching and overlapping. Drizzle the remaining herb butter on top of the biscuits.

Step 3: Bake in a preheated 425-degree oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Let them sit and cool for 5 minutes to absorb the butter and herbs before serving.

Pro Tip:

If you have extra time (and ingredients) you can coat the pull-apart biscuits in a variety of toppings. Since they’re coated individually anyway, you can set up a station with a few different seasoning ideas. This is an easy way to serve a variety of flavors in one go!


I can’t imagine you’ll have too much leftover if any at all, but if so it’ll stay fresh covered in an airtight container for up to 2 days. No need to refrigerate it, just keep it at room temperature on the counter. 

Tips for the Best Pull Apart Biscuits

  • Keep the dough cold until you’re ready to use it. When it’s too warm it gets sticky and harder to work with.
  • Serve right out of the baking dish– people can pull it apart like monkey bread. 
  • Use regular-size Pillsbury biscuits, not Grands based on how much dough will fit in the dish.

Serving Suggestions

Whether you’re hosting dinner parties for guests and need a side for beef brisket or oven baked pork chops or replacing your every dinner roll to pair with Lipton soup meatloaf you can’t go wrong with these biscuit bites!

They also make the best snack or appetizer with marinara sauce, homemade pizza sauce, melted garlic butter, honey mustard, or cheese sauce for dipping.

Additions and variations

  • Use different seasonings. Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, or minced garlic.
  • For some cheesy goodness. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, or cheddar cheese.
  • Make it sweet. Although these have the best savory flavor, this recipe can be used to make a sweet version. Coat it in a cinnamon and brown sugar mixture and enjoy it for dessert! 
  • Use a pie dish. For an elevated presentation bake the pull-apart bread in a round pie dish. While I love how it looks served up in a round dish, but note that depending on the size of your dish all the biscuit pieces may not fit.
