Bacon Cheese Pull-Aparts

     Since we're having the first real cold snap of the season I was in the mood today for a hearty, stick to your ribs kind of breakfast.  This recipe from Pillsbury was not only a cinch to prepare but warm and filling as well.  In my 10 inch dutch oven, the biscuits baked for a total of 23 minutes with 10 coals in a ring around the base of the oven, 14 placed around the outside edge of the lid with 6 briquettes spaced evenly in the middle.  I removed the center coals during the last 5 minutes of cooking time as the center was starting to brown too quickly.  This is a very good campfire recipe with ingredients that won't take up too much room in your cooler and you can even stir everything together in your dutch oven if you don't want to dirty an extra bowl. 

Bacon Cheese Pull-Aparts
1 egg
2 Tblsp milk
1 16.3 oz can Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Refrigerated Original Biscuits
1 2.1 oz package precooked bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions (4 medium)

     Lightly oil or spray 10 inch dutch oven.
     In large bowl, beat egg and milk with wire whisk until smooth.
     Separate dough into 8 biscuits; cut each biscuit onto quarters.
     Gently stir biscuit pieces into egg mixture to coat evenly.
     Fold in bacon, cheese and onions.
     Spoon mixture into prepared oven; arrange biscuit pieces in single layer.
     Bake at 350 degrees for 23-28 minutes or until golden brown.
     Cut into squares, makes 4-6 servings.
