Bacon Bread Recipe

To dress up plain recipes, I'll toss a bit of bacon into the mix, just like I did here. I'm always pleased with the results! Pieces of this hearty bread are almost a meal in themselves.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:10-12 servings


  • 3/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 3 tubes (7-1/2 ounces each) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. In a small skillet, saute onion and green pepper in oil until tender. Cut each biscuit into quarters. In a large bowl, gently toss onion mixture, biscuits, bacon, butter and cheese until combined. Transfer to a greased 10-in. tube pan. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately invert onto a serving plate. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 10-12 servings.
