Easy Bacon Cinnamon Rolls




About: In a valiant attempt to keep myself from dying of boredom, I create.
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:  http://quick-dish.tablespoon.com/2012/07/10/bacon-cinnamon-rolls/, 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:

Next you cook the bacon until it is partially done.  It needs to be flexible enough to be able to roll around the cinnamon roll. 

Step 4:

Blot very well with paper towels.

Step 5:

Open the package of cinnamon rolls.  I had never used this kind before, and I was a little disappointed, because the rolls were not rolled. 

Step 6:

They had pressed the roll design on the top of the roll,

Step 7:

but it didn’t go all the way through. 

Step 8:

So I took a paring knife and cut all the way through the dough to get a long strip of dough. 

Step 9:

I then used the paring knife to cut the bacon in half, length wise, for the bacon was way too wide for these rolls. 

Step 10:

I laid the bacon long the length of the roll dough,

Step 11:

and rolled it up like a cinnamon roll..

Step 12:

Place the roll on to the pie plate.  Repeat with the other rolls

Step 13:

Bake for 20 minutes as directed on the package.  You want the tops to be lightly brown.

Step 14:

Spread the icing that came in the roll package onto the hot rolls. 

Step 15:

Now for the test.

    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!
