Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

(8 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 tube of store-bought cinnamon rolls (I swear by Pillsbury's Grands Cinnabon cinnamon rolls)
  • bacon - about 8 strips for a 12 ounce tube of cinnamon rolls
  • that's all (unless you're feeling ambitious enough to make your own cinnamon rolls)
(This recipe comes to by way of Jenny from a great website called Rainy Day Gal. Check it out for other recipes and lots more cool stuff!)

First, fry up that bacon. Not all the way - give it sort of a half-fry. You don't want to make it too crunchy because it'll snap when you try to roll it up into those cinnamonny buns. Plus, it'll cook more in le oven.

Let it drain on paper towels. For big cinnamon rolls, you'll need two slices of bacon per roll. For the tiny guys, you just need one.

Pop that can. How I looove that sound. Separate the rolls.

Unroll them on a piece of parchment paper or a big ol' cutting board.

Lay the bacon strips across the dough... roll 'em up... lay them in a greased pan and bake according to package directions.

Sit by the oven and twiddle your thumbs.

Ding! They're done! Frost 'em. Smell 'em. Ready? Set? Swoon

I think these things have to qualify as a religious experience. Someone call the Vatican. And it's a crime how easy they are to make. Something this good you should have to work for, right?

Fun idea. Great flavors together. Like others, I also wish the bacon could be more crispy. Is there a way?

Use Oscar Meyer Fully cooked bacon instead of fresh bacon that you pre-fry a bit and the bacon comes out PERFECT in these cinnamon rolls! I used 2 slices of the fully cooked bacon and it was so good! I almost didn't let the family know when they were done!

As a lover of bacon and a lover of cinnamon rolls, I'm over the moon. I agree that in an ideal world the bacon would be more crispy, but this is just plain AMAZING!

This sounds yummy. My guess for crispy bacon would be to fry it up crispy and crumble it, then sprinkle the crumbled bacon inside the rolls and maybe on top too. Maybe add some dark chocolate drizzle. Mmmmm...

Finally made these after much anticipation... pretty tasty. Worth the wait? Hmmnn... agree with previous comment about crispy bacon. But the taste was good. Glad I tried it. Not sure I'll make it again. But thanks.

These taste great, but I wish the bacon could be more crispy. Any suggestions to help with that?
