A Welcome Home Breakfast

Last night was my grandma's first night in her home in about a month. 
She needed to have surgery which resulted in her being in the hospital for a while 
& spent the first part of her recovery at my aunt's house.
Christmas morning I made this delicious monkey bread recipe, 
and when we went to visit her in the hospital I showed her a picture and 
told her I'd make it for her as soon as she got home. 
Well, she's home! We all couldn't be more happy with her progress,
 so I think a "welcome home" breakfast is definitely in order. 

I made a version of monkey bread--it may have been the easiest thing I've ever made!
Here's the recipe:
1 tub Grands biscuits
3 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup nuts (I used pecans)
Preheat oven at 375 degrees. Melt the butter and syrup in a small bowl.
Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon.
Chop the pecans--I used a little more than 1/4 cup.
Spray a bundt pay with Pam and pour in half of the butter/syrup mixture & half of the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture and nuts.
Layer the Grands biscuits--you can cut these and roll them in smaller balls to make it more of a pull-apart bread--I chose to leave them as is.
Pour the remaining of both mixtures & the nuts over top.
It should look just like this before you bake it in the oven. Bake for 20 minutes.
Let it cool & reverse it onto a plate.
Ta-da! Here is the finished product:
See how easy that was! Enjoy!
