While grocery shopping one bacony day in early 2009, I picked up a tube of ready-to-cook cinnamon rolls and thought hey, I wonder how these would taste with bacon. As I read the back of the package I was reminded that the rolls are actually un-rolled when you remove them.
I unrolled the first pastry and the length of the dough reminded me of something. Could it be? Yes indeed…utter serendipity.
The unrolled pastry was nearly identical in size to a standard strip of bacon! This was going to be interesting.
After lightly frying the bacon for several minutes to pre-cook it a bit, I assembled all the bacon cinnamon rolls on an ungreased baking sheet and popped them in the pre-heated oven at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes. I then pulled the rolls out of the oven and drizzled the icing upon them as directed.
Right from the first bite I knew we had a winner. The Smaste™ rating alone was a jaw-dropping 51.93. The entire house was filled with sugary, cinnamony, bacony aroma. The taste was both sweet and salty, a perfect combination for a morning pick-me-up meal. An incredibly simple, yet heavenly tasting treat that’s highly recommended for any bacon lover!
