Bacon Today now has an official Bacon Babe of the Month contest where each month we feature another fine lady wearing one of our fantabulous bacon shirts.
Less frequent is our ongoing irregular series of reader recipe submissions, whereby we share with you one of our readers’ recipes whenever we feel like it.
Today’s Recipe of the Indeterminate Time Period was dreamed up by Frank R. It’s a fun little recipe for bacon dough rolls. Let us know if you try it.
“At our house we have learned to make a dish we call homemade hot pockets after the name of the frozen product. We like ours better because the yeast dough complements foods better than the pie dough and has less grease. We make pizza dough in our bread machine, then divide the two pound (4 C flour) loaf into eight pieces. We roll each piece to about a half inch thick by two inches longer than a slice of cooked bacon. Then cooked sliced bacon goes in to taste, cover it with a sprinkling of your favorite grated cheese. Lift the sides up and fold over until they touch in the middle. Press the edges together until they seal from one end to the other. Sometime we have to tuck the ends in to get them to seal. The put it on a cookie sheet and bake at 350F until browned (normally about 25 minutes). These carry well and warm in the microwave. They make a great on-the-go lunch. One making of dough and a (or two or three if we are feeling rich) pound of bacon makes enough for my wife and I and our three teenagers.”
Thanks for sharing, Frank!
