If you install/enable the XDebug PHP extension it will throw an error when a configured maximum nesting level is reached (default: 100). Since you probably have infinite recursion and not an infinite loop, PHP will stop before your server gets down. Then you can inspect the error logs to find out where it happened.

Note that in Magento 2 or even in M1 with many extensions the default treshold of 100 can be reached without a case of infinite recursion. So it's recommended to set the value to 200.
