Author Rebecca Lindamood


  • 1 pound refrigerated or thawed, previously frozen bread dough
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 1/2 cups finely shredded Cheddar cheese or a blend of Cheddar and Monterey Jack, divided
  • 1 cup crumbled leftover cooked bacon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives parsley, or a combination of the two
  • 1 tablespoon minced onions optional
  • nonstick cooking spray or additional butter or oil for the pan


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Generously grease (or spray with nonstick cooking spray) an oven-safe 12-inch skillet or a bundt pan.
  • In a small mixing bowl, stir together the butter, 1 cup of the cheese cheese, bacon, chives or parsley, and minced onions. Set aside.
  • Divide the bread dough into 32 pieces and place the pieces in a large mixing bowl.
  • Pour the butter mixture over the bread and toss gently to distribute everything evenly and coat all the dough well.
  • Use your hands to arrange the dough evenly over the bottom of the greased pan.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top of the dough.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the cheese on top is fully melted and crisped and the bread is golden brown.
  • Either turn out onto a serving plate or wait until the pan is comfortable to the touch before serving.
