Let me start by saying that regular Monkey Bread has the power to totally turn me into a weak, self control-less embarrassment to myself. SO clearly, I won’t share with you what happens to me when that Monkey Bread is studded with an entire pound of BACON! That’s right!! Salty, smoky, sticky & chewy BACON, generously glued together by puddles of sticky Maple Syrup! 🙂
This treat is best described in whimpers and moans, but I’ll do my very best to adequately describe the sheer and undeniable ‘epicness’ of such a decadent delight, using cognitive speech, ok? ..here it goes: Warm, fluffy and flaky Biscuits, layered & drenched in melted Butter, thick Brown Sugar & sweet Maple Syrup, held together by shards of sticky, candied Bacon that’s crusted onto the bottom AND onto the top of the Whole. Darn. Thing! ~whew!
This Sticky Bacon Bread is a decadent combination of everything that’s tender and chewy, sweet and cinnamony, ooey and gooey..all in one bite!
~And all quite possibly before Noon..Oooh yeah!
Might as well just give in now and don’t pretend you’ve got the self control to refuse…they’re calling your name!
Go for it! 🙂
What you’ll need to satisfy at least 8 crazy cravings:
One can of Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits
One pound of crispy & slightly crumbled up Bacon!
4 tbsp. Melted Butter
1/2 Cup packed Brown Sugar
1 tsp. – 1 tbsp. Cinnamon…to your liking.
1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
Chopped Nuts optional..I didn’t use any!
A 9″ round baking pan..a Bundt pan will work as well!
Spray the baking pan with non-stick spray..
Combine the melted Butter and Syrup in a small bowl and set aside. In another small bowl combine the Brown Sugar, Cinnamon and nuts if desired..mix well!
Pour a enough of the butter mixture in the bottom of the pan just to coat, and sprinkle some of the Sugar onto that. Top with a nice layer of Bacon shards! This will end up being the gooey top of the Sticky Bacon Bread when you flip it out! 🙂
Layer each Biscuit in a circle around the pan, making sure to top each one with some Syrup, Sugar & Bacon! Really ‘goo’ that baby up, use every last drop of the Syrup and Sugar mixtures!
The empty center will fill in as it bakes..no worries!
Resist the urge to eat it like this! Bake it at 350 degrees, uncovered for approx. 30 minutes…
It will be golden and puffy when it’s done! Let it cool a bit to set up, before flipping it out onto your platter!
Say a Bacony prayer before flipping it! 🙂
Now…dig into that warm, gooey and SO sticky Bacon Bread Heaven!
Hurry and grab a slice just for you..like seriously hurry or it will disappear! Don’t underestimate the way this smell will hypnotize everyone in the house, claim your piece and trust no one..haha!
Open wide and try to control your Sticky Bacon Bread Euphoria! ~Enjoy! 🙂
this looks yummy. What would I be able to use instead of Biscuits since they don’t sell them here in the Netherlands. I <3 bacon and maple combined
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2/3 cup milk
mix dry ingredients with whip. use pastry cutter and cut in butter until the flour resembles cornmeal. in separate bowl combine egg and milk. whisk until frothy. add to dry ingredients. with a spatula mix until easy to handle. on a floured surface knead about 10 times. press out to 1/2 inch. I use a wide mouth ball jar lid. this makes 8 biscuits. it is just as easy as buying them…I hope you try them. they are yummy
Thanks Gonna make them this weekend!!!!
OMGoodness I find this totally obscene, but I can’t look away, I sat gazing at that one forkful of this sticky wonderfulness far too long. I must try this… must try… yes…must.
Woww a great recipe :))
OMG……can’t wait to try this. I actually have a box of King Arthur’s monkey bread mix that I was gonna use this weekend and I think I will just add the bacon and see how it works…..yummy
Oh my goodness, I cannot even imagine how many points I would score with my husband if he smelled this baking. Going to be buying some canned biscuits and bacon today.
Can you make a slightly more printable copy of the recipe?
You can choose to omit the sections or pics you don’t need. 🙂
Hi, this looks awesome… i was reading the recipe and checking out the pics and I noticed that you show a 1 Tbls filled with cinnamon and it seems like there is a lot of cinnamon in the pic of the brown sugar and cinnamon mixed …. but your recipe says 1/2 tsp of cinnamon.. which is right? thanks 🙂
Oops..thank you. It’s really preference, so anywhere between 1 tsp. And 1 tbsp. will work. 🙂
This is the definition of “Food Porn” so sinful, so decadent, so wrong but I have to have it! *L*
O.M.G. Your photos are fantastic. If I were not already enamored with bacon and maple syrup and sticky buns and ooey-gooeyness, your photos would do the trick for me. I cannot wait to try this!
I think I can’t wait to try this. Thank you for the biscuit recipe for Dutch Girl. They don’t sell them here in Ireland either. However, they do have rolls in a can, wonder if that would work? Going to have to try it. Thanks.
Great recipe! These are definitely epic and life changing! Haha so easy to make too! 🙂
I cut the biscuits in quarters and shook them in the cinnamon brown sugar mixture. Then laid them in the pan and followed rest of instructions. Soooooo good!
I made this for a bacon themed pitch-in lunch at work. Everyone loved them! Everyone said it would be hard to find a bacon dessert…but not with this recipe. I think I might try this as a Christmas morning breakfast. Awesome recipe! Thanks for posting this recipe.
Hide them, hide them NOW!!!! Unbelievably Delicious! I will forever make these. The sweet and salty flavors compliment this fantastic dish! Clap, clap, CLAP!
This is just like Rachel Ray’s Bake-In Oozy Bread !
This was the absolutely best thing my two fav things bacon and sweets! Making it this morning can’t waot gor my husband to become hooked! Thanks for this your pics are drooling over the screen perfect! !!!!
Would you be able to do this without the cinnamon my husband is allergic
2 words…OH MOMMY!!!!!
OMG! I’ve died and gone to Heaven! I have everything here to make this. I’ll use a bit more bacon, though, for a more bacony flavor and some toasted pecans. It’s supposed to be very cold tomorrow and this will be a good day for some serious baking. I’m drooling just thinking about these.
