Maple bacon cinnamon rolls take the sweet and salty combo to new heights! Classic cinnamon rolls are stuffed with bacon and topped with a maple icing…plus more bacon!
Maple Bacon Cinnamon Rolls
I have a reputation for being a bacon addict, particularly when it involves desserts and sweets. Bacon just makes everything better!
But you would never know this about me from looking at my blog, so I decided it was time to remedy that situation. Enter Maple Bacon Cinnamon Rolls.
I recently formed a totally unhealthy donut addiction and I especially love the maple bacon donuts from my local Sugar Shack donut shop. If you’re in central Virginia, get yourself one!
Or don’t, because they’re addicting, and you’ve been warned.
I thought if I could recreate that donut then I could eat them whenever I wanted instead of being disappointed when they’re sold out. 🙁 But real donuts involve deep frying, which I tend to shy away from at home. Too messy.
Cinnamon Rolls on the other hand are not that complicated; most of the work is waiting for the dough to rise. If you can’t stand the anticipation, throw the dough in the refrigerator for the first (or even second) rise, go to bed and you’ll have cinnamon rolls ready to be baked fresh in the morning.
Have I talked enough about the bacon? How the sweet, salty, smoky bacon and maple are a match made in heaven? How these sweet rolls have bacon inside AND out? How bacon really does make everything better? How you should probably go make these now….
