Not a Diet Food

Bacon Parmesan Pull-aparts (Monkey Bread)

you need bacon, parmesan cheese, onion, butter, whomp biscuits

Here we go.

3- 10 oz cans refridgerated biscuits (cut in quarters & rolled into balls)

OR you can make your own biscuits:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup unbleached white flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 TBSP sugar
1/2 tsp cream of tartar

blend together. Cut in

1/2 cup butter or lard until grainy

make a well in the middle and

crack in 1 egg and
1/2 cup milk

Stir with a fork just until the dough comes together. Put on a floured surface and kneed 5 times.
Separate into balls

Now back to the pull-aparts

*Cook 12 slices bacon until crisp and crumble up (or get a package of real bacon bits if you are lazy)

* 1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese

* chop 1 small onion

mix those 3 together

melt 1 stick of butter

Dip the biscuit balls in the butter.

Get out a bunt pan . Grease it. Layer in biscuits, then bacon, then biscuits until it's all gone.

Pour any remaining butter over the whole thing.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes--careful not to burn it.

Let it sit 5-10 minutes when done then dump it out and dig in
