Glenda..wanna' make your 'Bacon Bread'

sharon_flNovember 19, 2012

Long time since I've posted on here-my DH passed away in Aug. & it's been just days of being overwhelmed. BUT..I remember years ago-you posted your recipe for (I think it was called).."Pull Apart Bacon Bread". I made it shortly after that- but as I was kind of greasy. I've not had the recipe in all of these years so would you be so kind as to post it here? Plus..did I not do something correctly as for the greasy thing? Was I supposed to fry the bacon half way, all the way, or...?? I'd like to make it for Thanksgiving morning gathering at my neighbor's home.

Have a nice, Blessed Thanksgiving!

sharon, I can't remember the bacon bread but I did a search and basically all the recipes are the same.

I recommend cooking the bacon until crisp and drain thoroughly.

And the onions and pepper cooking them in oil, I'd drain them thoroughly on a paper towel.

This is the bacon pull apart bread:

3/4 cup chopped onion
1 (1-lb.) pkg Hickory Smoked Bacon
3 (7.5-oz.) cans) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1/2 cup margarine melted
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup (2 oz.) shredded Cheddar cheese
3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper(s)

1.Heat oven to 350F. Cook bacon until crisp. Drain, crumble and set aside.
2.Place oil in skillet; heat over medium-high heat until oil is warm. Add green pepper and onion; saute until vegetables are tender.
3.Cut biscuits in fourths and place in large mixing bowl. Add sauteed vegetables, crisp bacon, margarine and cheese; toss until thoroughly mixed.
4.Place in 10-inch tube pan coated with vegetable cooking spray. Bake at 350�F. for 30 minutes. Immediately invert onto large serving plate. Serve warm.

sharon, this is a show stopper, I promise! Made these many times.

2 (10-count) cans buttermilk biscuits
20 Hershey Kisses ****also good with the almond ones
1/3 c. melted butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Flatten biscuits into 3-inch patties. Fold one Hershey Kiss into center of each biscuit. Roll in butter, then cinnamon-sugar mixture. Arrange in greased Bundt pan or Jello mold. Bake 20 minutes at 350�F. Unmold onto plate after cooling 5 minutes. delicious served warm

I remember Marlen posting a bacon pull apart loaf years ago.
I never did make it but it sounded delicious.

Here's the recipe I had:

Pull Apart Bacon Bread

Time 15-20 minutes
Serves 8


12 slices of Bacon, diced
1 (1 lb) loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
2 Tbsp. olive or vegetable oil, divided
1 cup (4 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 (1 oz) envelope Ranch salad dressing mix

How to make it

In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat for 5 minutes or until partially cooked.
Drain on paper towels.
Roll dough out to 1/2 inch thickness and brush with 1 tablespoon oil.
Cut into 1 -inch pieces; place in a large bowl.
Add the bacon, cheese, dressing mix and remaining oil.
Toss to coat.

Arrange pieces in a 9 x5 inch square on a greased baking sheet, layering as needed.
Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Cover with foil and bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until golden brown.

*** Sharon, my sincerest condolences on your loss.

If I remember correctly, I think when I made this I made a note to myself to cook the bacon longer the first time.

angelaid, although yours sounds good, don't think I'd care for the ranch. Not my cup of tea.

The one with the biscuits is a good one, for me, that is.

(((Sharon))), I hope you are doing okay. The "firsts" are the hardest and the holidays can be lonely. Didn't you and DH used to be really creative with your Halloween costumes? I really enjoyed reading about them. At least I'm pretty sure that was you.

Well, DH loves Ranch. If you don't like it, leave it out. Just sharing a recipe I got here, in the Cooking Forum, ten or twelve years ago!
