Just 5 little innocent ingredients~ pretend you see pecan halves in the picture too~


well, maybe not innocentdecadent is probably a better word


Melt a stick of butter and cut biscuits into 1/8s.    Roll around in the butter in your baking dish


Top with crumbled bacon and bleu cheese.     Add pecan halves if you really want to be sinful


Using your fingers toss the dough pieces with the toppings to distribute evenly


Bake at 375 for about 25-35 minutes~the edges will brown first so make sure the dough in the center is done before removing from the oven

Try to keep the dough pieces in an even single layer for the best results

Use a serving spoon to serve onto plates, then dig in with your fingers!

    This looks like a fun make ahead treat to take on an overnight boat trip as it would be very easy to bake or reheat at cocktail time.

  2. This looks simply decadent!….My hubby is not a fan of blue cheese (I love it)..would substituting another cheese do well with the recipe?

    Jenna, without even meeting you in person, I’m going to hold you personally responsible for the weight I gain by HAVING to try your recipes. This looks scrumptious. I have printed it and can’t wait to try it. Thank you for sharing, but no thanks for the pounds! laurie

  4. I know I would find something good to eat today on your blog. This is a decadent snack I intend to serve next time our kids are home. Thanks for a new recipe.
