If your family is like mine, you are split down the middle about what makes the ideal breakfast meal. Half of us love the indulgent, sweet stuff in the morning. The other half consistently request more savory side of breakfast. We either end up cooking 2 different things for breakfast or half of us cede victory to whoever weilded the spatula and graciously eat whatever was prepared for us. It is no way to live, people. It is this breakfast battle that led me to this particular recipe. Perhaps you have tried these Cinnamon Pull Aparts. They are outstanding. I would eat them for breakfast everyday, but in an effort to satisfy my husband's meat tooth I added a few little alterations and these beauties were born.
Rich and sweet with just the prefect amount of salty crunch, these lovely Maple Bacon Pull Aparts will satisfy both the sweet and savory breakfast lovers. Serve them for breakfast, brunch, or please an entire room and serve them warm for dessert. These little morsels are always a huge hit.
MAPLE BACON PULL APARTS
Recommended Pellets: Maple, Apple, or Hickory
2 cans jumbo homestyle (not buttermilk or butter flavored) refrigerator biscuits (16.3oz.)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup maple syrup
1 cup butter (2 cubes)
1/2 cup water
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped bacon
Cook your bacon until crisp. If you use your Traeger to cook your bacon (which I highly recommend) be sure to let the grill sit with the lid open for 4-5 minutes to establish your smoke then turn your temperature to high. Spray your grill and lay your bacon down. Let it cook on one side for about 5-8 minutes depending on the thickness of your bacon and then flip and cook for another 5-8 minutes.
While your bacon is cooking, remove biscuits from the can and cut each biscuit into 4 pieces and peel each piece in half; set aside.
Combine syrup, brown sugar, butter and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute. Stir in cinnamon
Add crumbled bacon and syrup to biscuit quarters and mix to coat.
Pour into greased bundt pan and spread evenly in the dish.
Reduce the heat on your grill to 350 degrees F (this would work just fine in an oven too) and place the pan on the grill; close lid and cook for 30-35 minutes or until the biscuits are done. Remove from the grill and invert the pan onto a serving platter making sure to get all the gooey syrup onto the biscuits. Serve warm or with ice cream if desired. If you are looking for a little extra salty bacon flavor, I would recommend reserving some of your crumbled bacon and putting it on top of the biscuits like delicious, crunchy sprinkles.
I hope these beautiful little gems help settle more than a few battles at your breakfast table, they definitely have in my house! Enjoy!
