Monkey bread for all seasons is what I’m talking about. And while we’re at it, let’s add a few extra food groups to the mix and make them in individual servings. Of course you can make your own bread dough, but I went the quick route and used canned biscuits. I find it most satisfying to cut through the buttery biscuit dough with kitchen shears.
Once the dough is divided, coat the pieces generously in cinnamon and sugar (shake ‘em in a bag!). Chunk up a few apples (I used Gala this time) and break apart baked bacon pieces. Load up the popover tins in layers of cinnamon sugar dough, apples, and bacon, then spoon about 2 teaspoons of melted butter and brown sugar over the tops. Bake for about 20 minutes at 350-degrees. These monkey bread packages are most delicious straight from the oven.
The flavors were inspired by one of my favorite autumn meal pairings of pork barbecue sandwiches and cinnamon apple cobbler. The little bakers twine bow and parchment paper package was inspired by these brown paper (CAKE) packages tied up with string. Happy Fall, All!
