Maple Bacon Monkey Bread

Maple Bacon Monkey Bread is extra gooey and cinnamon-sugar sweet with salty pieces of candied bacon throughout. This easy to make breakfast starts with refrigerated biscuit dough and comes together effortlessly. It?s wonderful for weekends, Holidays and brunches!

One of my favorite donuts is the Maple Bar with Bacon on top. To me, it?s the perfect combination of salty and sweet. I wondered whom the madcap genius was that came up with this crazy combination. I finally came across this information. Apparently the craze started in 2009 when a bakery in Nebraska wanted something shocking that people would talk about. She combined the 2 flavors and called the maple bacon donut ?The Elvis?.

Elvis was my Nana?s favorite all-time singer. She would later tell me stories of putting on his ?catchy? music and fondly watch me dance in my playpen. Elvis was known for playing hard, working hard and eating hard. His favorites included butter-soaked grilled banana/peanut butter sandwiches and meatballs wrapped in bacon. At Christmas he preferred ham salad, potato salad, meatloaf and Monkey Bread. Now, Elvis didn?t have Maple Bacon Monkey Bread in his day, but I am sure he would have, if he?d known about it.
So, what makes this breakfast plate so special"  This Maple Bacon Monkey Bread is SO deliciously ooey, gooey and good for so many reasons! The soft, warm, cinnamon-sugar coated dough bites are drenched in a yummy maple, caramel, sticky sauce and layered with crispy, candied, pieces of bacon.

You get a nice salty, sweet, crunchiness in every scrumptious bite. It?s perfect for any weekend breakfast, brunch or Holiday get together. Everyone will love pulling the little bites of sugary biscuit dough and popping them into their mouths. It?s the perfect breakfast all in one convenient bite! I think Elvis (and my Nana) would have approved!
