One of my husband’s favorite foods is cinnamon buns. He is a huge fan of cinnamon buns and used to eat at least one a day when we are in college. He doesn’t do that anymore, but he is still a fan. Another one of his favorite foods is bacon. He loves almost anything that has bacon in it and like me he thinks that bacon makes everything better.
With Father’s Day coming up in a few weeks, I decided it would be great to make some great recipes with bacon in them. Most guys I know love bacon and I decided to combine bacon with cinnamon buns to make a delicious breakfast or dessert for my husband. This would be great for Father’s Day breakfast or for anytime of the year. I have only had bacon in a sweet context a couple of times, but it goes perfectly in this monkey bread with the cinnamon and maple flavors.
This Maple Bacon Cinnamon Monkey Bread tasted amazing. It was also easy to make and would be great for either breakfast or dessert. I used refrigerated cinnamon buns to make the monkey bread, but you could also use refrigerated biscuits if you want less cinnamon flavor. The cinnamon buns went great with the bacon and the maple syrup flavor. These were so ooey gooey and coated with a butter, brown sugar, and maple syrup combination. Just looking at the pictures of it is making my mouth water!
This would be great for Father’s Day or just because. When I made it we had it for breakfast and then brought the leftovers to my parents for dessert, where it was quickly devoured. The great thing is that the monkey bread is great served hot or cold. I used maple bacon to add more maple flavor, but feel free to use any type of bacon that you want. If you love bacon and cinnamon buns, this is a must try recipe!
