Rah Rah TCU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My Alma Mater just one the Rose Bowl! Wahooo!!!!!!!!

I grew up living less than a mile from TCU and going to the football games at Amon Carter Stadium. Then, one day I actually went to school there and got my first degree in Social Work. I am so proud of my Alma Mater! Just a friendly little shout out to the Frogs!

OK, back on track. Happy New Year everyone!  This morning to kick the new year off I made a breakfast pull-apart bread.  A co-worker brought this one day at work and it was so good! Then I found out how easy it was to make. Oh, and it was a good as I remembered.

First you cut up onions and bells.

Then while your onions an peps are cooking you take 3 cans of Grands biscuits.....

And chop into fourths...

This recipe calls for 2 pounds of bacon. Now, I do love some bacon but 2 pounds of bacon seems a bit ridiculous and a heart attack waiting to happen. So I fried up 2 ounces of bacon and also chopped up some turkey sausage. Not that the sausage actually had to be turkey, but, I do tend to eat healthy regardless of what what this post looks like and typically have turkey sausage on hand for breakfast on the weekends. But, anyhow, I guess what I am trying to say is, I fried up bacon and turkey sausage and mixed it together.

Then I took each biscuit and dipped it into melted butter. 

Yeah I know, Paula Deen should be on hand but she is at the Rose Bowl! 

I put one layer of biscuits, one layer of bacon and sausage, one later of onions and bells, and one layer of cheese, into a bunt pan. 

I repeated and ended with a layer of biscuits on top.

I popped it in the oven at 350 for about 30 minutes but that really was not long enough. I would crank this up to 375 for at least 45 minutes or so. Just keep an eye on it so it does not brown on top. I actually placed a piece of foil on top for the last 30 minutes. 

 It turned out perfectly!

We pulled it apart and then.............

Ate it up with a bit of New Year Mimosas! 

Then, after we ate, I chilled out all day and knitted up my Victoria yarn and watched the Rose Bowl. I also learned how to card wool but I will post about that tomorrow! Until then!

Cheers and Happy New Year!

Very excited to read your carding story. I'm wondering if you used hand carders or a drum carder. What kind of wool was it and how many times did you card it? :) I'll try and be patient and wait for your next blog entry.

Hi Liz,

Thanks for stopping by my blog and becoming a follower. I really like this recipe and I'm going to have my hubby make it for breakfast soon. (He does most of our cooking). I'm looking forward to your carding blog post.
Happy New year

I used hand carders. The wool that I used was wool and mohair combo. I carded about 2 ounces. I just pulled of bits of the wool and spread it out on one of the cards then carded it to make a rolag. I carded it over and over until the wool was smooth...several times. Then I pulled it off the cards and made the rolag. There is a really good video I just posted that taught me exactly how to do it. It was really easy and fun!
