Bacon Cinnamon Buns

I saw this post and I knew I had to make them. They just sound so horrifically bad for you that I just needed it. Kind of like the that monster burger I don't remember who came out with when McDonalds, Burger King and everyone else was carrying on about their salads and low carb stuff. Granted, I never actually got whatever burger that was but I didn't have a whoever it was's close by. That sentence probably only makes sense to me.

They are not my real cinnamon buns where I make the dough and everything but boy do they smell good.

Here's what I did:

Get a can cinnamon buns and unroll them
Precook the bacon for a few minutes in the toaster oven so some of the fat drips off but it still stays soft when it cooled
Cool the bacon so it can be handled
Roll the bacon into the cinnamon rolls
Bake at 350 in a convection oven until lightly browned, it was about 20 mins but keep an eye on it.
You should probably let it cool a bit before frosting but I didn't.

I will, however, let them cool a little before trying them. We shall see what people at work think of these. Everything I have brought so far has been relatively tame and 'normal'. We'll see how people react to these.

I'd eat it! I love bacon with sweet "accidentally" getting the syrup from the pancakes on the bacon :)

Come across your blog and this is the first time I see bacon in cinnamon buns! Have never had this combo before. Plenty of bacon and buns, but never together. Interesting.
