Two old college roommates love bacon. And they love gorgonzola. And biscuit dough. We spent many an all-nighter nourished only by monkey bread. Can you see where we're going? This pull-apart bread is a savory version of the classic monkey bread. And it's awesome. Mmmm... bacon.

We really liked this! I substituted sharp cheddar for the parm and gorgonzola. My husband doesn't like either. I baked for 26 minutes which I think 20 would've been enough. I did precook the bacon as another reviewer did and added a little bacon grease to cook the onions. I think I will add some garlic next time! Read More

Delicious! The only thing I did differently was that I cooked the bacon on my griddle (I like my bacon crispy) and drained it on paper towels. Then I used a little bacon grease to sauté the onions on the stove. The rest of the recipe I used exact ingredients & followed directions. Also it took the full 30 minutes to bake. This recipe received rave reviews from everyone who tried it! Read More
