Holiday Time Recipes: Cheesy Bacon Monkey Bread

Hello all.  We're starting something new this year.  Instead of focusing strictly on sharing Holiday Traditions, we'll be also be sharing some Holiday Time Recipes.  Generally, Monica will be sharing a recipe during the third week of the month and Pat one of our Merry Maidens will be popping in when she can with a Traditions post.  However, this month Monica is away from home on business; so, Pat is stepping in and sharing one of her traditional recipes.  While the ingredients may be specific to North America, hopefully you'll be able to find an equivalent ingredient in your area of the world if you are interested in trying the recipe out.

Christmas morning is a special time for my family. We gather from all parts of the state (Chicago), often arriving in our pyjamas, for Christmas cookies, breakfast and presents (not necessarily in that order). One of my family’s favorite breakfast foods is what I call “Cheesy Bacon Monkey Bread.”

You will need:
  • ½ lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tubes of the original Pillsbury biscuits
  • 2 TBSP butter or margarine, melted
  • 6 oz. Cheese Whiz
  • Bundt or Angel food cake pan*
*(if you don’t have one, place an oven-safe glass in the middle of a pie pan)

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Spray your pan with Pam or other spray oil. Mix melted butter and Cheese Whiz until blended. Pour into pie pan.
  • Cut biscuits into four pieces each and sprinkle onto cheese in pan.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes or until browned on top.
  • Take out of oven and immediately flip onto large plate, letting cheese drip onto ring of bread.
  • Top with crumbled bacon.
  • Serve as pull-apart bread, or slice.
