Last Friday was our once-a-month snack time at work. Four or five people bring something each time for our large group. Knowing there was going to be a lot of good food at work that morning, I brought my camera so I could take some pictures. Tammy brought several yummy things, and this was one of them. Everyone loved her Bacon-Cheese Pull Aparts! She found this recipe at Food.com and said it was really easy to make. I asked her if I could post pictures of her delicious creation, because I’m sure a lot of you will want to make this…I know I do. It’s a tasty mix of melted cheddar cheese and biscuits, with crumbled bacon and chopped green onions added in, too…who can resist that?
Tammy omitted the mushroom pieces that the Food.com recipe called for, but if you like mushrooms, you can add those in, too. Here’s the recipe with a few minor changes…
BACON-CHEESE PULL APARTS slightly adapted from Food.com
- 1 egg
- 2 Tablespoons milk
- 1 (16.3 oz.) can Pillsbury® Grands® Flaky Layers Refrigerated Original Biscuits
- 4-6 slices crispy bacon, cooked and broken into 1/2-inch pieces (or you can use 4-6 Tablespoons packaged real bacon pieces)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4-1/3 cup finely chopped green onions (4-5 medium), using both the green and white parts of the onion
- 1 (4-ounce) can mushroom pieces (optional)
- cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 11×7″ or 12×8″ (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray (if you don’t having either of those size pans, you could probably use a 9×13″ pan–it just may turn out a little flatter). In large bowl, beat egg and milk with wire whisk until smooth. Separate biscuit dough into 8 biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters. Gently stir the biscuit pieces into egg mixture to coat evenly, then fold in bacon, cheese, onions, and mushrooms, if desired. Spoon the mixture into your sprayed baking pan and arrange biscuit pieces in a single layer. Bake 23-28 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm by cutting into squares, or just pulling biscuits apart. Makes about 8 servings.
Here’s a close-up of all that cheesy-bacon-onion yumminess!
