Tuesday Treats: Cheddar-Bacon-Garlic Monkey Bread

Cool temperatures are in the forecast. The World Series starts tonight. College football this weekend. And the NBA. Like every night. 😆 This recipe seems like it’s sort of time-consuming but prep actually goes pretty fast and it’s great to munch on in front of the big screen.

Total Time: 50 min.
Servings: 12 servings
Pull apart a piece of Cheddar-Bacon-Garlic Monkey Bread at your next special occasion. You and your friends will all love this tasty garlic monkey bread!

What You Need
1 pkg. (8 oz.) KRAFT Sharp Cheddar Cheese, divided
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
4 slices cooked OSCAR MAYER Bacon, each cut into 8 pieces
1 can (16.3 oz.) refrigerated big buttermilk biscuits (8 biscuits), quartered

Make It

Heat oven to 350ºF.
Cut half the cheese into 32 small cubes; shred remaining cheese.
Mix butter, garlic and parsley until blended. Drizzle 1 Tbsp. butter mixture onto bottom of 9-inch round pan sprayed with cooking spray. Place 1 each cheese cube and bacon piece on center of each dough piece; press dough around cheese and bacon until completely enclosed. Place in prepared pan.
Sprinkle with shredded cheese; drizzle with remaining butter mixture.
Bake 35 min. or until golden brown. Cool 10 min. before removing from pan to serve.

Due to the garlic, it’s a huge inside joke between her and Sinjen. Caleb, on the other hand, insists she at least double the recipe so he can have his own pan. 🙄 Werewolves. Watch for all of them, plus Ariel, to appear in Roman’s book, THE SOUND OF SILENCE, coming on Halloween!
