Intro: Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

Move over peanut butter and chocolate, there's a new heart stopping sweet in town and it involves bacon!

These sweet rolls are great for a slightly salty snack, for brunch, or anytime. Bacon cinnamon rolls are easy to make, and the smell while baking is divine.

Nothing fancy to make your own:

  • bacon (any type)
  • cinnamon rolls (I used pre-made refrigerated rolls from a tube

These regal rolls will be the hit of your next meal. Ready, set...let's bake!

Step 1: Par-cook Bacon

Bacon and cinnamon rolls are cooked at different temperatures and times, so we'll need to pre-cook the bacon before rolling it into our rolls.

Preheat oven to 375°F. I lined my baking sheets with aluminum foil then laid out bacon to cover the sheet. Bacon was cooked for about 10 minutes, until just barely done.The bacon should be flexible and safe to eat now, the bacon will crisp up after being rolled into the cinnamon rolls.

Once bacon is removed from oven blot dry with a paper towel and leave to cool.

Step 2: Re-roll With Bacon

Pop open a tube of the pre-made cinnamon rolls and separate them onto a non-stick work surface.

Gently unroll the cinnamon roll completely, place a rasher of pre-cooked bacon on top and re-roll. Moisten the tail end of the cinnamon roll to secure it back onto itself and stop it from unrolling.

Step 3: Bunch Together in Pan

Preheat oven to 350°F. To keep the rolls moist and gooey while baking make sure to bunch them together in the pan.

Place rolls into oven for 25-30 minutes.

Step 4: Glaze and Serve

You'll know your rolls are done when the tops are a golden brown and the bacon is nice and crispy. Remove rolls from oven and pour on icing while still hot so that it melts all over the rolls and in between the folds.

These bacony rolls won't last long, so maybe put another batch in the oven.

Enjoy!

These are pretty awesome, but you should also try candied bacon pancake strips. No syrup needed.

I am going to make this as soon as I can. My favorite chef learned his cooking skills from his grandmother, has anyone inspired you? Just curious.

OH MY GOSH! This sounds so good, but really, are you trying to kill us?!! I'm going to have to find a herd of teenagers to feed these to. They will thank you, my tastebuds will thank you, my heart.... maybe not so much. Ah well, there's worse ways to go. Thanks for a creative recipe Mike.
