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
