Bakin’ With Bacon and The King!

Standard

Greetings Baconians!!!!!   

 

Another Saturday begins and here I am in the Royal Castle kitchen making yet ANOTHER incredible little snackable (or lunch) for you to try out.    If you like bacon and BBQ sauce, you’re gonna love this one – TRUST ME!

Cheesy Barbecue Bacon Pull-Apart Loaf

What a GREAT snack this is……………and easy peasy.    We like easy peasy right everyone?   RIGHT!!!!!    This one is right from Pillsbury…….and while you know you can use ANY biscuits – Pillsbury’s Grands are big and fit just right in a loaf pan.

Ingredients

1 can (16.3 ounce) Pillsbury Grands refrigerated biscuits

8 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled (about 3/4 cup)

1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon finely chopped green onions

8 slices Cheddar cheese (from 8-oz package), quartered   (I used sharp cheddar but that’s just because WE love it!)

1/2 cup barbecue sauce

I don’t usually include photos with recipes but thought it might help to SEE this one being made…………………….

Ready?

Steps

Heat oven to 350°F.  Line 9×5-inch loaf pan with cooking parchment paper or foil; spray with cooking spray.
Separate dough into 8 biscuits; separate each biscuit into 2 layers, to make a total of 16 thin biscuits.

Top each thin biscuit with slightly less than 1 tablespoon bacon and 1 teaspoon green onions. Place 2 quartered cheese slices on each biscuit, slightly overlapping.

Make 2 stacks of 8 biscuits each. Place stacks on their sides in 1 long row in loaf pan.   Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until loaf is deep golden brown and center is baked through and no longer doughy in center, covering with foil if necessary to prevent excess browning during last 15 minutes of bake time. Cool 10 minutes in pan on cooling rack. Remove loaf from pan by lifting parchment paper from pan.
Drizzle top of loaf with 2 tablespoons of the barbecue sauce; sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon chopped green onion. Serve with remaining barbecue sauce for dipping.

Well this one is another quick and easy winner………………..Mom and Dad tried this one out while watching a British mystery on the tube (they watch a lot of those on PBS!) and it was gone in a flash.
Remember – bacon is a wonderful ingredient in almost EVERYTHING………hahaha………when you’re making something for breakfast, lunch or dinner (and if bacon is OK for you to eat!) think about adding some bacon to it.   Oh YEAH.    Which reminds me, Mom said she thought this loaf recipe would even be good if you put some chicken in that – thin slices of course!

 Long Live Bacon (well….you know what I mean)

It’s good to be King!
