  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Remove dough from both cans; do not unroll. Place in pan in a circle; pinch both ends of dough firmly together to seal into 1 ring. Bake 30 to 33 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Remove bread from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, 40 to 50 minutes.
  • 3
    Line 18x13-inch pan with cooking parchment paper. With serrated bread knife, carefully cut bread in half horizontally. Pinch or tear bread from cut sides of top and bottom halves, leaving about a 3/4-inch shell; discard or save bread pieces for another use. Place bread rings cut sides up on pan.
  • 4
    In medium microwavable bowl, mix chicken and barbecue sauce. Microwave uncovered on High 3 to 4 minutes or until hot.
  • 5
    Use decorative side of bread ring for top of Bundtwich. Place 12 of the cheese slice halves in decorative side of bread ring. Place remaining cheese slice halves evenly in other side of bread ring. Top evenly with chicken mixture and onion. Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until cheese is melted and rings are hot.
  • 6
    Carefully replace decorative side of bread ring; lightly press. With serrated bread knife, cut into 8 wedges to serve.

Expert Tips

  • You can bake the dough up to 4 hours ahead of time in this recipe! Then simply assemble the Bundtwich when you’re ready to serve.
  • We chose crescent dough for this Bundtwich because it adds a soft texture and sweet flavor.
  • You can substitute green onion for the red onion in this recipe.
  • You can customize this basic Bundtwich with different barbecue sauces and types of cheese. A Vidalia onion, barbecue sauce and sliced Gouda would be a delicious twist.
  • Removing some of the inner bread from the crescent ring makes the Bundtwich easier to fill and cut in this recipe.
