Bakin’ with Bacon In King Teddy’s Kitchen

Standard

Hello Loyal Baconians!  Welcome to the kitchen of the King (me!)

Today is another breakfast bacon recipe – and it’s a bread which is always fun to make especially when you don’t have to let things rise and whack it back down and rise again and whack…..well you get the picture.    This is way easier and truly delicious.   I made it with shredded cheddar but you can use any cheese I’m sure.    We are a SHARP CHEDDAR household here!!

Not everyone has a bundt pan I know…………..something tells me you could make this in a large baking dish but I HAVE NOT TRIED THAT…………..

 

Bacon, Egg and Cheese Brunch Bread

INGREDIENTS – This is for a bundt pan – I have only made it with a bundt pan but I have a feeling a large baking dish would work)

This recipe makes TWELVE servings (depending on the size of the appetites of your guests of course!)

  • large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • cups self rising flour
  • 2 1/4 cups cheese (Sharp Cheddar is best!) – I buy the packages of shredded cheddar……saves on the work of shredding/grating the cheese into large shreds
  • 10 slices bacon (cooked and finely crumbled)
  • 2 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • tablespoons butter (melted)
  • teaspoon chopped fresh chives (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spray a standard size bundt pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a medium-size mixing bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Scramble in a skillet over medium-high heat until firm. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a medium size mixing bowl, use a fork to mix together the flour with 1 cup cheese shreds and 1/2 cup bacon. Make a well in the center and add the cream.
  4. Using a fork gradually work the cream through the dry ingredients until moistened.
  5. Sprinkle 2 Tbsp reserved bacon and 1/4 cup cheese evenly on the bottom of the bundt pan.
  6. Use a regular 4-oz ice cream scoop to divide the dough. Scoop 1/2 of the biscuit batter onto the bottom of the pan.
  7. Use the back of a spoon or offset spatula to spread and flatten the dough slightly.
  8. Sprinkle the biscuit dough with 1/2 cup cheese shreds, scrambled eggs, remaining bacon crumbles then top with 1/2 cup cheese shreds
  9. Scoop the remaining biscuit dough over the filling. Flatten and spread slightly.
  10. Place into the oven and bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the dough comes back clean.
  11. Rest in the pan for 5 minutes then turn onto a cake plate.
  12. Mix together the melted butter and chopped chives. Brush the bread on all sides.
  13. Use a sharp knife to slice and serve.

 

Now doesn’t that sound YUMMY????

YUMMY IN MY TUMMY!

I……WANT……SOME……NOW!!!

Yeah I thought you might say that.     Well perhaps everyone will have a chance to try this one because even though it SEEMS like it’s complicated it really IS NOT.   It’s worth the effort.

IF you make a mess in the kitchen I’ll clean it up!!! Honest!

Well now that’s an offer you can’t refuse right?

TRY IT – YOU’LL LIKE IT……………..BURP.

Until we meet again in my Castle Kitchen!!!!!!  

YOUR BACON KING…….

  1. That sounds delicious and is definitely on my list to bake! I don’t have a Bundt tin but as you say, I am sure a not too deep baking dish will work. I think a normal deep cake tin would make the mixture too dense to cook through properly.

    • Monkey bread is awfully yummy……and so many DO have it at Christmas – I guess this can be an “any time” bread but whenever you have it, it’s awfully darn good!

      Hugs, Teddy and Mom too (it really is delish)

  3. Teddy, this sound super delish…one of the best yet, and Mom does have a bundt pan. She’d just have to get some of that self-rising flour. Do you think she could use Bisquick and just leave out the salt? She’s got that! We want this now! Have a good weekend. No rain in the forecast. Yippee!

  4. I would do just add baking powder. Here are the ingredients to make Bisquick substitute

    Ingredients
    1. 1 cup flour
    2. 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
    3. ¼ teaspoon salt
    4. 1 tablespoon shortening, vegetable oil, or melted butter

    Hope it works.

  5. This sounds and looks really good Teddy. We are going to try to make this for when we have another morning office get together here. We will let you know how it turns out. Yummy in my tummy is the right thing to say with seeing the photos. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful day.

    • Hello visitors! This does happen to be the perfect snackable for a get-together…..it’s really delicious and you can add other stuff if you like. My Mom likes it JUST LIKE THIS though……that’s what’s fun about recipes – they are just a “guideline” – people can play around with it, modify it, add/subtract and still the basic BONES of the recipe mean you’ve got something GOOD goin’ on!

      Hugs, Teddy

  6. We are right there with our Sibe pal there – we want some NOW!!! That looks so good and we bet it is very tasty. We aren’t too fussy when it comes to cheese – we like ALL of them.
