Bacon Filled Cinnamon Buns

I know what your thinking....double wammy with the cinnamon buns & bacon.  But you have to admit these sound heavenly.  Every Thanksgiving and Christmas I make homemade cinnamon buns for breakfast.  It's two days that I allow myself to not think about calories, instead it's all about indulging in goodies!  Best part about these is they don't have to be made from scratch!


You'll need 3 things:

1 tube of ready to cook cinnamon rolls
1 package of bacon
1 package of real bacon bits (or cook up a few slices of bacon to be used for garnish)

  1. Preheat oven according to package instructions.
  2. Open tube of cinnamon rolls and unroll the dough onto a floured surface.
  3. Follow instructions on the tube and prepare the dough to be rolled (place any filling, such as cinnamon & sugar, on the rolled out dough).
  4. Prior to rolling, lay 1 strip of bacon vertically on the dough separating at approx. where you will be cutting the rolls (to ensure each cinnamon bun gets 1 slice of bacon).
  5. Roll up the cinnamon roll and slice.  Place on cooking sheet and bake according to package instructions.
  6. Once removed from oven, frost with the frosting that was with your tube and garnish with a few pieces of real bacon bits.


  1. So you put the raw bacon in the raw dough? just checking before I make these! they sound delish!
