Olivia found this tasty recipe on www.southernbite.com.  It is a great variation on an old favorite--monkey bread.  The salty caramel blends nicely with the bacon for a sweet and salty treat.  I have not made this bread myself, but Olivia says it is really yummy.

As summer winds down and you are looking for a nice breakfast alternative for the upcoming long weekend, perhaps this recipe fits the bill.  With brown sugar, butter, bacon, and cinnamon, your house is guaranteed to smell good and keep friends and family coming back for more.

Salted Caramel Bacon Monkey Bread

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8 to 10 servings, depending on size
  • 10 slices bacon
  • 2 (16.3-ounce) cans refrigerated honey butter flavor biscuits (regular biscuits will work fine, too)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • ¾ cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Cook the bacon over medium low heat to crisp and drain it on paper towels. Coarsely chop the bacon and set aside.
  2. Open the biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters. In a gallon-size zip-top bag, combine the white sugar and cinnamon and mix well. Add the biscuit pieces and close the bag. Toss the biscuits pieces to coat them in the cinnamon sugar.
  3. Spray a Bundt cake pan with nonstick cooking spray, then layer the biscuits pieces and bacon in the pan.
  4. Combine the melted butter, brown sugar, and salt and mix well. This may take some effort, but they will eventually mix together. Pour the mixture over the biscuits and bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until deep golden brown and cooked through. Cool in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes, then place a platter over the pan and invert. Serve warm.
