Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 

Bacon Filling

Cook bacon in a saucepan until crisp.

Remove bacon bits and place in a medium-sized bowl leaving drippings in the pan.

Cook onions in the drippings until soft and transparent, about 10 minutes. 

Add garlic to onions during the last few minutes of cooking.

Remove from heat and stir in 2 tablespoons of butter until melted.

Spoon onion mixture into the bowl with bacon bits.

While mixture is cooling, cut each biscuit into 9 small pieces.

Add and stir in the cheese into the bacon mixture.

Add cut-up biscuits to bacon filling and stir to coat the pieces of dough.

Lightly spoon the biscuit pieces into a small bundt pan being careful not to pack them down. 

Bake for 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and let it rest for a few minutes then pulling bread away from sides remove from pan and serve hot.

 

Black Olive Filling

Melt butter in a medium saucepan.

Saute peppers for about 10 minutes adding garlic the last few minutes of cooking. 

Add olives, mushrooms, and Italian seasoning to the saucepan and saute for a few more minutes.

Remove olive mixture to a medium-size bowl and let cool.

While mixture is cooling, cut each biscuit into 9 small pieces.

Stir the cheese into olive mixture.

Add cut up biscuit pieces to olive filling and stir to coat the pieces of dough.

Lightly spoon the biscuit pieces into a small bundt pan being careful not to pack them down. 

Bake for 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and let it rest for a few minutes, then pulling bread away from sides remove from pan and serve hot.

 

Notes

There is no need to grease pan because of the butter in the recipe.

Be sure to let the filling cool a few minutes before adding the cheese.

Double the recipe and bake in a regular size bundt pan.

Use your imagination and add your favorite ingredients for the filling.
