When it comes to brunch treats, it's hard to top classic cinnamon rolls, but we're up to the challenge. Tuck in a few slices of bacon and drizzle everything with maple glaze, then watch this dish win major points with friends. Watch the video to see how to bake up a batch in a flash, and then print out the recipe below.
For crispier bacon, par-bake the bacon for 1 to 2 minutes before tucking it into the cinnamon rolls.
1 tube store-bought cinnamon rolls, such as Pillsbury Grands!
10 slices of bacon
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1 cup powdered sugar
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an eight-inch round casserole dish.
- Gently separate the dough into five rolls. Unravel the rolls and lay two strips of bacon onto the cinnamon sugar side of each piece of dough. Roll the dough back up with the bacon tucked inside. Evenly arrange the cinnamon rolls inside the casserole dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.
- Meanwhile, whisk together the melted butter, syrup, and powdered sugar until smooth. Drizzle over the baked cinnamon rolls and serve warm.
