A Sunday morning breakfast isn’t complete without a warm bread. What can be better than a bacon cinnamon roll? Well, nothing really. And this is easy. This recipe is for the kids and bacon lovers in your house. You will be a hero and it is so incredibly simple, most of the work is done for you if you buy the Pillsbury rolls in a can. I do this because I have a gluten-free kitchen. That being said, I do not make the rolls myself so that I don’t accidentally have any flour get loose and cause problems.
Bacon Cinnamon Rolls
1 or 2 cans of cinnamon rolls
thick cut bacon, 1/3 of a slice per cinnamon roll
lard or crisco to grease baking sheet
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or foil) and place a rack on the baking sheet. Pre-heat. When the oven and rack reach 325 degrees, carefully place your slices of bacon on the rack being careful not to overlap the bacon. Pre-bake for about 20-25 minutes. You do NOT want to crisp the bacon at this time, but you want it on the verge of being done.
- Remove from oven and drain on paper towels. When cooled, cut each slice of bacon into thirds.
- Ready a clean baking sheet for the rolls by lining it with parchment paper. Unroll the cinnamon buns and place a piece of cool, drained bacon in the center. Re-roll and place on your baking sheet.
- Follow the directions on the cinnamon bun can and bake. When the rolls are removed from the oven, allow to almost cool completely before adding the icing, if you are going to ice the rolls. We don’t, but it is just a delicious if you do.
