I have made plenty of sweet monkey bread, including Orange Monkey Bread and 5 Ingredient Monkey Bread. I love how easy and fun it is to eat, just pulling apart as little or as much as you are craving. Loading this bread with eggs, bacon, and cheese makes it a savory meal more than a snack. It has the perfect blend of carbs and protein to get you on your way.
Savory Breakfast Monkey Bread Recipe
Get out your bundt pan and just a few ingredients to make this hearty and delicious breakfast.
- Homestyle biscuits–Use the original style and not the flaky biscuits for this recipe.
- Butter–Melt 4 tablespoons to add to the cut-up biscuits.
- Eggs–Farm fresh is always best, but choose organic or cage-free from the store.
- Bacon–Cook the bacon ahead of time to save some time!
- Cheddar cheese–Shred a block of cheddar cheese for the best results.
How to Bake Bacon
Mornings can get crazy busy, I know. Baking the bacon ahead of time saves you time and saves you from a messy cleanup. When I cook bacon, I do it in the oven. I set the temperature to 415°F and while it is preheating, I lay out the individual slices of bacon on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. (Yes, right on the pan! No rack needed.) They are perfectly crispy in 18-20 minutes. No flipping and easy cleanup! Then, after the bacon has cooled enough to handle, crumble the strips of bacon into little pieces. You can store cooked bacon in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
How to Make Savory Breakfast Monkey Bread
It is easy to put together this filling breakfast, and it will definitely keep you satisfied! Start by preheating the oven to 350°F and cutting each doughy biscuit into six pieces. Combine the melted butter with the biscuit pieces, and then add the scrambled eggs, bacon crumbles, and shredded cheddar cheese. That’s it! After you mix everything together, put it all into a greased bundt pan. Cook for 30-40 minutes, or until the biscuits are a golden brown.
Can I Use a Different Pan?
Generally, monkey bread is made in a bundt pan. But, you can definitely use a different type of pan to get the same delicious Savory Breakfast Monkey Bread. You could use a pie pan or square bake pan. But, the cooking times could vary when you are using a different pan. Be sure to check the middle of the bread for doneness. A bread pan or springform pan would also work.
