Cheesy Bacon Monkey Bread

This recipe was adapted from a biscuit recipe of my Grandma Gillen’s.  When I was young, she lived about three hours away, so we were always excited to visit her when we could.  In the summers we would get to spend a week or two with her, and she would take us swimming and she would always have ice cream in the freezer for us after.  I remember running across the hot pavement back to her house and following the white painted lines because I didn’t have shoes on, and that was the cooler footpath.

Grandma was the only I knew that had double ovens except for on the “Frugal Gourmet”, which we would sometimes watch at her house.  So those ovens, in my mind qualified her as a gourmet chef and she certainly never proved me wrong.

Two more things that have never proved me wrong is cheesy bacon.  So without further adieu, here is the recipe!
