I LOVE bacon, but I never thought of it being something that is good in a sweet way!   So when I came across this recipe:, I wasn’t too sure.  The recipe was easy enough, and I was getting bacon for another recipe, so why not?  Well, this recipe makes me happy.  Trouble is, I want to eat the whole thing all by myself.  So, let’s make this easy recipe for Easy Bacon Cinnamon Rolls.

Step 1:

Ingredients and Supplies:
1 package of pop and fresh cinnamon rolls (you choose)
Pie plate
Nonstick cooking spray
Paring knife

Step 2:

Preheat the oven to the temperature indicted on the roll package, mine said 400°.  Spray the pie plate with the nonstick cooking spray. 

Step 3:

The thing I liked about this Instructable is that the author pointed out some of the pitfalls with different versions of the same product. For example, the fact that a cinnamon 'roll' may not actually 'roll' throughout the roll and that amendments may have to be made on both the 'roll' and the bacon. Thanks a lot!
