“Bake-In” Oozy Bread

This bread is oh-so-good! The bacon will “bake in” as it all comes together in the oven – it smells delicious and tastes even better!


  • 1 package bacon, chopped
  • 1 jar or bottle maple syrup (8 ounces)
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 package home-style buttermilk biscuits (8 biscuits), such as Pillsbury brand


Pre-heat the oven to 375°F.

Place a medium size skillet over medium-high heat and add the bacon. Cook until crisp, about 8-10 minutes, and reserve.

Place a small saucepot over medium heat and add the maple syrup and the butter – do not bring up to a boil. Cook until butter is melted, then turn the heat off and reserve.

Butter or spray a 9-inch x 3-inch loaf pan. Pour a couple of tablespoons of the maple/butter sauce in the bottom. Layer three of the biscuits in the bottom of the pan. Tear up one of the biscuits and fill in any open spaces with the pieces. Don’t worry if any still remain, the ooze will fill those in.

Sprinkle half of the reserved bacon onto of the biscuits and top with about 1/2 cup of the butter/syrup mixture. Place the remaining biscuits on top, sprinkle the rest of the bacon over them and top with the remaining maple sauce.

Transfer to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove and immediately turn over onto a serving dish.
