Ah, yes! You heard that right. Bacon bread. I was a little skeptical at first, but then I tried it and it was awesome. Tasty enough that I had to share with ya’ll. It would be perfect to prepare for Christmas morning.
One of my favorite recipes my mom made for me as a kid was Monkey Bread. I still make it every so often as a treat. It’s perfect sized bites for a snack as I am running out the door for the office in the morning.
This Bacon Bread recipe fits my qualifications for cooking. All of the ingredients are “whole” – meaning they are easy to measure out, hard to mess up.
Pull Apart Bacon Bread
- 1 package (10oz) Bacon
- 1 cup green pepper, chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 3 “whop-pop” tubes refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (Feel free to use more)
Cook bacon until crisp (Don’t burn yourself like I did). Drain, crumble, reserve grease.
In bacon grease, cook green pepper and onion until tender. Cut biscuits into quarters and place in a large mixing bowl. Add cooked vegetables, crumbled bacon, butter, and cheese. Toss and mix well (Have fun with this step, just don’t spill it everywhere).
Spray two loaf pans with vegetable oil. Divide mixture between the two pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Serve warm. Store left overs in fridge.
This recipe should easily please any bacon-loving crowd and is a great idea for breakfast for the family, brunch, or any party where bacon is appropriate.
