As I become more tied up with life’s responsibilities, breakfast tends to take a back seat. I know I definitely suffer from quick-breakfast syndrome, which means I grab a banana or muffin or skip it entirely if I have too much on my plate. 

This year, I’ve committed to making breakfast a priority. Since I know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I want to begin treating it as such–especially focusing on family to start my day off right. My recommitment to breakfast was the inspiration for this recipe. 

If there was ever a dish to serve for a family breakfast or brunch, this would be it. It’s quick, easy and decadent. It has all of my favorite ingredients in one dish. Who doesn’t love bacon and brown sugar? Who doesn’t adore maple syrup and butter? And most importantly, who doesn’t have a serious love affair with Pillsbury Grands! biscuits? This recipe will only take a few more minutes than popping your beloved biscuits in the oven for a simple meal. It just takes breakfast up a notch and trust me, your family will love you even more for it. 

In a medium-size bowl, add melted butter, packed brown sugar, pure maple syrup, ground cinnamon and all-purpose flour and whisk together until well combined and thickened. Next, add in your crumbled bacon and gently stir together into the mixture without breaking apart the pieces any further.

Carefully remove the hot pan from the oven and place a serving platter over the top of the baking pan and invert the biscuit bake onto the platter. Drizzle any remains from the baking pan over the biscuit bake and serve. Enjoy!
