Why I Love My Nordic Ware & Bacon Parmesan Monkey Bread

Note:    The boys and I are busy baking cakes, cookies and treats for the guys at his office.     The only way we can possibly get this much baking done is to have plenty of baking supplies and our good quality bakeware.    This year we are baking chocolate cakes in bundt pans.     Having more than one bundt pan is a must!   I have Nordic Ware bundt pans and I LOVE them.     First of all, they are made in America.    Buying made in America products is very important to me.     I have the traditional bundt pan, but Nordic Ware has many shapes and sizes.     Little Guy and I have looked at many of them and considered buying a few of them.   Like...

Don't you LOVE this Christmas tree shaped bundt pan?    I think it would be pretty with a pound type cake and fresh fruit over the top of it.


With as much as we love football around here you know we would get a LOT of use out of this bundt pan!   

One of our favorite things to make in a bundt pan is Bacon Parmesan Monkey Bread

Ingredients
12 pieces of bacon, crumbled
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup onion, very finely chopped
3 cans refrigerated biscuits, cut into quarters
1/2 cup butter, melted

Directions
Mix together bacon, parmesan cheese and onion.     Dip one can of biscuit quarters and layer in bottom of the pan.    Sprinkle 1/3 of bacon mixture on top.    Dip second can of biscuit quarters and layer on top of that.    Sprinkle second 1/3 of bacon mixture on top.     Dip last can of biscuit quarters and layer.    Sprinkle remaining bacon mixture.       Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown.

What size are your biscuits? Grands (8 count) or regular size (10 count)?

This sounds delicious! I have been trying to think of an appetizer to bring to a new year's eve party. This sounds perfect!

I use the regular size biscuits, but I am sure you could use the Grands too and just cut them into six pieces.

Have a wonderful party! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Deanna, I love my Nordic Ware. I will tell you that I haunt ebay for the pans-I have been able to pick up some for less than $20-always brand new.

Deanna!!!

I made this at at new years eve party last night and it was the hit of the night! The husbands especially LOOOOOVED it. Mine included. He said it brought back memories when his mom made monkey bread when he was a child. One of the husbands said it was the best thing he had ever eaten in his entire life. And he said that at least 10 times. LOL

I did make a couple of substitutions. I used the butter flavored biscuits and I used finely sliced scallions instead of the onion. It looked pretty with the little flecks of green.

Thanks for the recipe. It is definitely going to be a regular request in my home.

Happy new year!
