Cinnamon rolls and bacon
« on: April 19, 2014, 05:30:28 PM »
 :o :o :o

Now this sounds pretty gross to me but DD#1 made a request for Easter breakfast.

She wants to make cinnamon rolls but before rolling, she wants to place a slice of bacon so that the bacon is rolled up inside.

I say that there is no way that the bacon would cook all the way through when rolled up inside before the roll is done baking . . . or am I wrong?

Has anybody heard of anything like this?

Maybe cook the bacon first and crumble it inside before rolling?

I would probably partially cook the bacon so it's mostly done, but not crisp.

Pre-cook the bacon?

I am NOT a fan of undercooked bacon, so I think cooking it first and either crumbling it inside before rolling, or sprinkling it on top would be better options.

Google!!

Pillbury has you cook the bacon before rolling it into the cinnamon rolls ("cook bacon until crisp," actually)

These guys have you cook it until it's not quite raw, and then finish it in the cinnamon rolls (from the tube, not from scratch).

Thank you, Toots, for doing my research for me! ;) I don't know why I usually post here first before googling . . . probably because you all are so much more friendly! ;D

The rolls were really pretty good! If you like savory and sweet together, I would recommend trying this.

I wish I would have posted before doing my shopping. ::) I just got the regular Pillsbury cinnamon rolls which actually do not unroll.

But, thanks to Toots' post I knew what to do . . . this site http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-Bacon-Cinnamon-Rolls/ shows what to do with the regular rolls. While still tasty, they were a little difficult to make and not very picture-pretty. I did not cut the bacon strips in half.

Next time, I'll buy the "Grands" which look like they unroll a whole lot easier, plus give a wider dough surface.

I cooked the bacon 'till almost done (as suggested on the Pillsbury site) and rolled while the bacon was still warm and flexible. While the bacon did cook a bit more during the baking process, I don't think that frying the bacon until "not quite raw" would have cooked the bacon enough.



Breakfast was a huge success! Thank You! ;D
