Alright, alright… so… monkey bread has been an obsession of mine lately. I admit it! I can’t help it. There’s just something about that warm fluffy bread that’s baked together with a bunch of ‘naughty’ bits. Of course, this monkey bread is a bit different. It’s savory instead of sweet. Bacon, egg, and cheese… to be sure!
That’s right. Monkey bread that has bacon, eggs, and cheese baked RIGHT into it! This fun little breakfast bite is perfect for a crowd or a brunch time spread. Mostly because… who doesn’t love bacon and eggs?!
This has to be one of the most fun ways to eat breakfast. Popable little bites that have all you know and love about breakfast together. I kept this lightened up by using a light butter, reduced-fat cheese, light biscuit dough, and of course subbed in some egg whites.
All good stuff. Delicious stuff.
Serve this up along side some fresh fruit and you’ll be good to go! Like I said, it served a crowd, and you can always fancy it up with chives and drizzled cheddar cheese sauce as garnish. But, to be honest, it’s really unneeded!
If somehow you end up with leftovers. Never fear! Simply cover and store the monkey bread in the fridge and reheat with a quick pop in the microwave to enjoy again later.
