Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

Yield: 5

Ingredients:

  • 1 (5-count) package large, pre-made cinnamon roll dough
  • 10-12 bacon strips
  • ¼ cup butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 10 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F degrees.
  • Heat a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat. Place bacon in the saucepan and fry for 2-3 minutes semi-cooked and still soft. Remove the bacon let it rest on a paper towel-lined plate to drain out any excess oil. Reserve 2 strips for the garnish.
  • Spread out the cinnamon rolls into long strips. Lay 2 strips of bacon on each cinnamon roll, then fold it back up into a roll. Place each bacon-cinnamon roll into a greased pie tin.
  • Cook the rolls according to package instructions.
  • To make the frosting, combine the confectioners’ sugar, cream cheese, butter, and maple syrup in a mixing bowl. Beat with a hand mixer until smooth and evenly incorporated. Set aside.
  • Remove the cinnamon rolls from the oven. Drizzle with frosting, sprinkle on the bacon bits, and serve.
