Bacon Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Icing (Easy, No Yeast, and Mini)

Yep ... I went there. 

These are so easy that it would be a crime not to make them.  

Mini Bacon Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Icing
(Also known as ahhhhh hell yeaaaah)
(Adapted from this recipe)


1 tube of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
Brown Sugar
Crisp Bacon

Take the dough out of the tube and make it into a ball.  Roll the dough out and cover it with cinnamon, brown sugar and crisp bacon.  Roll the dough and slice into 12 equal pieces.  Place into greased muffin tin and bake @ 375 for 12 minutes.  Let cool for a couple minutes then pop out of the pan with a spoon.

Maple Icing:

1 T milk (I used Vanilla Almond Breeze)
1 tsp real maple syrup
3/4 cup icing sugar

Whisk together and pour over warm rolls.

I only used a couple slices of this bacon and then devoured the rest.  Yes, I like my bacon almost burnt.

Get in mahhh belly!

What are you waiting for?  MAKE THESE!

Like the idea of baking with bacon?  So. Do. I.

Why am I here??? said...

Ummmmm yum! That recipe is so simple that I could make it. I would have never guessed that you didn't knead the bread while slaving away in your kitchen. Nice work Jolene. And I too love my bacon extra crispy.

Yes I LOVE cooking with bacon! A friend made bacon brownies that I enjoyed before going gluten-free and your rolls remind me of that sweet & bacony goodness. I save bacon fat to smear over roast chicken.
