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

This came out amazing! Sadly we could not find gorganzola but we aimed for blue cheese and harvarti. So delicious. I used butter tasting biscuits and rolled them into balls as directed. After I caramelized the bacon and onion I pour the entire thing together, grease and all in a bundt pan. The bacon grease with the buttery biscuits was heavenly! You can really change this recipe up with so many different cheeses and it would be great. Read More
