Bacon Apple Monkey Bread | Girls Can Grill

Yields8 Servings
Prep Time15 minsCook Time1 hr 15 minsTotal Time1 hr 30 mins

 2 cans biscuits
 ½ cup granulated sugar
 1 tsp. cinnamon
 4 thick slices bacon, diced
 1 apple, diced
 2 tablespoons butter
 1 cup brown sugar

1

Heat the grill to 375-400 degrees.

2

Using kitchen shears, cut each biscuit into quarters and place in a bowl. Toss with the granulated sugar and cinnamon so each piece is coated.

3

Place a 3-quart Cast-Iron Cooker on the grill over direct heat. Add the bacon and cook until almost crisp. Add the apples and cook until tender.

4

Turn off half of the burners and make sure the cooker is over indirect heat. Add the butter and brown sugar and stir until melted.

5

Add the biscuits. Close the grill lid and cook for about 45-60 minutes, rotating the pan occasionally for even heat.

6

Turn out onto a platter and serve warm.

Don’t grill over direct heat or the sugar will burn.

To cook on a Big Green Egg, use the plate setter for indirect heat. Cook time will be 30-45 minutes.

For campfire cooking, cook over indirect heat and use the cooker lid to lock in the heat. Cook time may be slightly longer.

If for some reason you don't feel like grilling, you can cook the bacon and apples over the stovetop and finish in a 350-degree oven for 1 hour.
