This holiday season, just be. Be happy, stress-free, nourished with love . . . and filled with ridiculously delicious foods. My amazingly easy, incredibly yummy appetizer, Blue Cheese Bacon Pull Apart Bread, is sure to satisfy all of the above and put, dare I say, a big cheesy smile on your face.
Hot from the oven in under 30 minutes, guests will hardly believe that this dish, oozing with rich flavor, is made with only five ingredients -- bacon, biscuit dough, butter, blue cheese and Italian herbs. Ready-made biscuit dough from the dairy case and dehydrated Instantly Fresh herbs keep this appetizer recipe quick and convenient, bringing calm to the holiday chaos this time of year. Oh, and the aged blue cheese crumbles from Simply Artisan Reserve add an audacious punch of flavor paired with bacon.
If you’ve ever made monkey bread, you’re already a pro at whipping up this Blue Cheese Bacon Pull Apart Bread. And, if you don’t know what I’m talking about or never cooked in your life, you’ll still nail this recipe as it’s basically fool proof. Simply melt butter in pie pan and stir in herbs; cut up biscuits and toss around in butter; top with blue cheese and cooked bacon crumbles; and bake for 20 minutes. That’s it!
I bring this bread by popular request to everything from office parties and pot lucks and make it on the fly at home when guests drop by unexpectedly. It’s also an easy weeknight treat to serve family-style with a big salad or hearty pot of soup. Enjoy!
