12 Weeks of Christmas: A Monkey Bread Morning

Every family has there Christmas traditions.  Some have stretched on for so many generations that no one can remember when they started.  Others are brand new, just trying out their wings and seeing where they fit.

We have one of those kinds of traditions.

A few years ago, my husband and I looked at each other in the rush of Christmas morning.  Presents to be opened, stockings to be explored, kids to be dressed, a house to be picked up before company, and still no breakfast anywhere in sight.  We knew it was going to be another LONG Christmas morning.  And we also knew our kids were going to have an absolute melt down if we didn't get something in their tummies... fast!

Thus the Monkey Bread Morning was born.  Ok, I really just came up with the name right now, but believe me, this creation does deserve it's own holiday somewhere on the calendar.  Assembling breakfast doesn't take long and the best part is that it can bake while we open gifts.  Ooey, gooey, and yummy... we only make it a couple of times a year, but it is so worth it.

And since Christmas morning is coming up fast, I wanted to give you this recipe a few days early so that you can start a new family tradition as well.  Hope you enjoy!

Monkey Bread
3-4 pkg of refrigerated biscuits (depending on size of your bundt pan)
Cinnamon and sugar mixture

1/2 c butter
3/4 c brown sugar

Open your biscuits and cut each on in fourths.  Roll cut pieces in cinnamon/ sugar mix.  Layer in bundt pan

Melt butter and brown sugar and bring just to a boil.  Stir continuously for approx 3 min.

Pour over biscuits and bake at 350 degrees for 30 min.  Let cool for 15 min before turning onto a pan and serving.

This bread stands great alone or it can be served with something as simple as fruit and bacon.  Very yummy!

Do you have any Christmas morning traditions?
