I make mine the same but with my 1 stick of butter I add 3/4c. brown sugar. I melt that together and pour on top of the dredged biscuits and bake. Plus no pecans

BLUEBERRY MONKEY BREAD

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2/3 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
4 pkg. refrigerator biscuits
1 1/4 stick oleo
1 1/4 c. blueberries
2/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 c. blueberries

Thoroughly grease a 10-inch tube pan. Mix 2/3 cup sugar
and 1 tablespoon cinnamon. Cut biscuits in quarters. Roll
each piece in cinnamon mix. Arrange about 1/4 biscuits and 5
tablespoons blueberries. Repeat 3 more times with remaining
biscuits and remaining of 1 1/4 cups blueberries.
In saucepan, combine sugar, oleo, vanilla, 1 tablespoon
cinnamon and 1 cup blueberries. Bring to boil. Reduce heat;
cook, stirring frequently until sugar dissolves. Pour over
biscuits in pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 65 minutes. Turn out on
plate.
That is how I use to make it QSis... but without blueberries. Also I never knew how much of what to use. We would just get a bowl and dump sugar and cinn. in it then roll each piece of biscuit into the the mix. Then put a stick of butter into a pan...melt and add remaining sugar mixture into that...if it needed thickened more we would add more sugar...then dump over the top. I need to make that....haven't done it in atleast 8 years! Your's looked really good though...may have to add some fruit to mine! I bet my daughter would love it!

I've seen it, and it looks sinfully delicious...and the fact that she made it for Jimmy Carter makes it even more special.
It has cream cheese wrapped inside the little bisquit balls, then lots of cinnamon, sugar, and pecans.

Bacon Pull-Apart Bread - kansasgirl

12 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 c Parmesan cheese, fresh grated
1 small onion, chopped finely
3 cans buttermilk biscuits, each biscuit cut into quarters
1/2 cup butter, melted
Fresh pepper to taste
1 c Cheddar cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 10 in Bundt pan.
1.Combine bacon, Parmesan cheese, onion and fresh pepper; set aside.
2.Dip each biscuit piece into butter. Place 1/3 of biscuit pieces in the bottom of the Bundt, and then sprinkle half of bacon mixture over biscuits. Sprinkle with 1/2 the cheddar.
3.Repeat layering one more time and then end with a layer of biscuits; brush tops with butter.
4.Bake for 40 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool on a wire rack and then invert onto a serving platter. Serve immediately.
Well, I made this. Prepped it the night before, covered it with Saran Wrap and kept it refrigerated till morning.

The rolls did not rise properly, and were way too dense. The bread was much flatter than monkey bread should be. And the bacon and cheese all seemed to settle in one section. Couldn't taste onion at all.

It was very buttery, and the crust oozed butter in fact.

I was disappointed because this sounded so fantastic, but undaunted, since I have a strange love affair with monkey breads. Just wish I could have more success with them. Maybe I need a better bundt pan - mine is a cheap piece of stuff.

Any suggestions, kansasgirl or anyone else?

You can use frozen bread dough.
You can also roll in olive oil and then a mix of finely chopped rosemary and thyme.
