So many times during the week I just have a rushed breakfast as I head out the door for work. I definitely do not take the time to enjoy my breakfast. I have been trying lately to have at least one day a week where I make breakfast a little more special. Some times it is eggs and bacon. Some times it is going out for breakfast. Today it was something similar to what my mom called Monkey Bread when I was growing up. I got this recipe from Nicole and Lurlyn at The Jones Way
~ 2 small tubes refrigerated buttermilk biscuits OR 1 tube Pillsbury Grands buttermilk biscuits
~ 3 Tbsp. butter, melted
~1/2 C. pancake syrup (any brand you like, I used Mrs. Buttersworth)
~1/3 C. packed light brown sugar
~1/2 tsp. cinnamon
~1/4 C. chopped pecans, optional
~1/4 C. chopped almonds, optional
Preheat over to 375. Spray a fluted pan with non-stick spray.
Combine the melted butter and syrup in a small bowl and set aside.
In another bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nuts (if desired).
Place about half of the syrup mixture in the bottom of the pan.
Then sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture on top.
Lay the biscuits on the bottom of the pan, overlapping edges (closely together) to form a ring.
Top with remaining syrup and sugar mixtures.
Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool for 1 minute in the pan, then invert onto a serving platter and enjoy!
TJ was home so I figured making him some breakfast since he has been working so stinking hard!
It was a great way to wake him up this morning! He loved it and it was super tasty!
Always a huge hit!
Do you have a way to make breakfast special at your house?
