BACON CHEDDAR PULL APARTS


This one is super yummy! When my daughter Sarah and her friend, Amy were raising funds for their missions trip to Brazil - this was one of the top sellers every week at our bake sales. It always sold out first, and was being requested every week at the sales. I made these today for our Saturday morning soul winners / prayer breakfast. We had a ladies meeting last night and there was all kinds of left over fresh fruit to go with them. So I served Bacon Cheddar Pull Aparts, Scrambled Eggs and Fruit. It was the perfect breakfast combo! The muffins went really well with the eggs!



BACON CHEDDAR PULL APARTS

2 eggs
4 tablespoons milk
4 (7.5 oz) (10 count) cans refrigerated biscuits
1 lb bacon, diced and cooked
1 (8 oz) bag shredded Cheddar cheese (I've also used Shredded Monterey Jack)
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions (4 medium) (I use half of the tops too)
1 stick butter, melted

Optional: 1 small can diced green chiles, drained
Can also add: diced green pepper or diced red pepper if you like those.

DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 2 regular size muffin tins with cooking spray. In large bowl, beat eggs and milk with wire whisk until smooth.
  • Separate dough into individual biscuits; cut each into quarters. Gently stir biscuit pieces into egg mixture to coat evenly. Gently fold in bacon, cheese and onions. Spoon mixture evenly among 12 sprayed muffin tins. You could also use the foil muffin liners - but I would even spray those.
  • Drizzle melted butter evenly over top of pull aparts.
  • Place muffin tin on cookie sheet - the muffins tend to leak the butter a bit and the cookie sheet helps contain the mess.
  • Bake at 350°F. for 20 - 23 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from muffin tins.
  • Best served warm.

I FINALLY made these tonight, and oh my goodness were they good! That is saying a lot since I don't normally like breakfast food.

I didn't make as many as the recipe calls for, so there were no leftovers--kinda sad that 2 of us ate a whole pan...I also served gravy on the side. Totally going in the "to make again pile"!

I made these and took them to a local fair and took 1st place! Do I need to say more lol. Actually I used I can't believe its not butter and that worked too, plus cut down on some of the calorie content. Also I used Grands biscuits. 1/2 were the kind that had butter the other half had the flaky. I just put them altogether. Yes, they are one of my favorites, and so good warm. Thanks for posting this Starr.

Krista that's awesome! CONGRATS on the blue ribbon!!! I wish I had a way to attach a blue ribbon symbol to my recipes. That would be a cool thing to do.
