Maple Bacon Monkey Bread
Y’all, this stuff is insane!! My boys devoured the entire pan of this Maple Bacon Monkey Bread without even batting an eye – it’s a good thing they at least let me get pictures before they inhaled it! Of course, when you combine maple syrup, bacon, pecans – you know it’s going to be good! Lawd have mercy, just look at all those biscuit pieces drenched in maple syrup and covered in bacon and pecans!! Swoon!! I did get to taste a corner piece before it disappeared and I can’t wait to make this again!! As it was baking my kiddos were coming into the kitchen like vultures wanting to know what I was baking – so be warned, it won’t last long!
Although monkey bread is usually made in a bundt pan, I went with a 9×13-in baking pan for this recipe. I wanted to make sure there was a good biscuit ratio to all the yummy toppings! I don’t have a platter large enough to hold this, so I used parchment paper and grabbed my largest cutting board. Be super careful flipping this over – I almost dropped mine!! Eeek!
Making the bread
For my readers who live outside the United States, I know some of you are not able to get your hands on refrigerated biscuits. You can use a homemade biscuit recipe – you can see my homemade buttermilk biscuit recipe here. You may need to adjust the baking time a bit, so just keep an eye on it as it bakes! 🙂
Although my family totally digs the bacon with the biscuits, some of you may think it’s a bit weird. I think it would be equally fantastic without the bacon and just with the maple and pecans!

Holy cow does this look good 🙂
I want and need this bread in my life! Seriously bacon month has been good to you!
Holy crap! Jamie! I am going to gain ten pounds just looking at this, and you know I am going to make it, and eat it all. And not share with my family.
I wouldn't be able to be left alone in a room with this stuff — seriously! It looks incredible!
There is NOTHING like maple bacon…..and in monkey bread!? This is genius!!!!
I made this today for my annual bacon day my family does! It's a huge event and this was a big hit! I feel like it was a nice balance with the bacon maple and pecans. I might have made more sause though. It was super yummy overwell and super quick to make. I will definitly keep this for Bacon Day 2017.
This would be even better with homemade bread recipe. I will have to look into it. Once I find a suitable recipe… I’ll let you know how it goes!
The recipe says to bake at 450???? Do you mean 350??
Thanks for double-checking! 450°F is the correct temperature.
I don’t have a plate to invert onto that is 9×13 size. It would be a oblong plate but could invert into another 9×13 which I have.could I also use a bunt pan? Thanks looks great!
