Monkey bread in a jar, Farmer’s casserole, Cinnamon French toast


These recipes are suggestions for a special breakfast.

Monkey bread in a jar
2 tubes refrigerated biscuit dough
1/2 C sugar
1 TBS cinnamon
1/2 C butter
purchased vanilla frosting

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Clean 8 small oven-safe mason jars. Spray each mason jar with non-stick cooking spray. Open tubes of biscuit dough and separate them. Cut each biscuit into four pieces and place in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add cinnamon and sugar to a small mixing bowl. Stir to combine.

Add cinnamon/sugar mixture and melted butter to mixing bowl with biscuit pieces. Stir together until biscuit pieces are evenly coated. Divide coated biscuit pieces evenly among prepared mason jars. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until biscuit pieces are fully cooked and tops are golden brown. Allow to cool slightly before adding frosting.

In a microwave safe bowl, heat frosting for 15 seconds or until it is the consistency you desire. Using a spoon (or put the frosting into a plastic bag with the tip cut off), drizzle frosting over tops of the baked monkey bread.
