Anyway, this bread was heavenly. It's made in a bundt pan and you can just tear off pieces and eat it until you fall into a bread coma. I can see this being a fun food for a football party...add in some chili, or other finger foods. It can definitely feed a crowd that's for sure!
The recipe is fairly simple....the most time consuming part was cooking the bacon. But, while that's cooking you can also chop up your pepper and onion.
2 cans biscuits (I used Pillsbury "Grands")
1 stick butter
10 strips cooked bacon
1 red or green pepper chopped
1 medium onion chopped (I used a red onion)
3/4 cup grated cheddar
3/4 cup grated parmesan
Cut each biscuit into quarters. In a large bowl, mix together the biscuits, melted butter, pepper, onions, bacon and cheeses.
Pour everything into a bundt pan and cook at 325 degrees for 45-60 minutes. Let cool. Remove from pan.
Pull off pieces and enjoy!
In my pics, you'll notice orange bits....I happened to have an orange bell pepper on hand so I substituted that for the red/green pepper. I was also thinking, as old as this recipe is, I'm sure Pillsbury hadn't even developed the "Grands". They added a bit of extra butter flavor which was great. The original recipe called for 45 minutes. I found I needed to bake mine 60 minutes....again, I'm thinking that's because my biscuits were so huge, the pan was just filled to the brim with ingredients. Next time, I plan to increase the amount of cheddar to 3/4 cup....it originally called for 1/2 cup (and that's how I made this loaf).
I tell you, the house smelled great all day long! I ended up freezing a couple large freezer bags full of extras...it was way too much for just the two of us! Enjoy!
