Maple Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

I can’t do a breakfast blog and not address three of the staple breakfast flavors. Maple, bacon, and cinnamon. These flavors on their own are amazing but combine them and, I mean, WOW. We have a winner here folks! This recipe is fairly easy, there are some pretty labor intensive cinnamon roll recipes out there, but this is a no yeast recipe so there’s no extra time needed for proofing etc… which means you can whip it up in the morning for house guests or family during the holidays. This is a recipe that I personally see as a special occasion recipe, definitely not an average Wednesday morning breakfast.

Here is what you need:

For cinnamon rolls

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp white sugar
2tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 Tbsps butter, softened
¾ cup milk
1 egg

For filling

1/4c softened butter

1/4c. brown sugar

1 Tbsp cinnamon

3 Tbsp Maple Syrup

1 pkg bacon chopped, cooked, and drained.

For Topping

3Tbsp milk

1 1/4c confectioners sugar

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 Tbsp maple syrup

1 Tbsp Bourbon (optional)

add water if needed for glaze consistency

Preheat oven to 400F. Coat a 9-inch square baking dish with 2 tablespoons melted butter, or you can use the bacon grease from cooking the bacon.

Whisk flour, 2 tablespoons white sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Work 3 tablespoons softened butter into flour mixture using your hands. Beat milk and egg together in another bowl; pour into flour-butter mixture and stir with a rubber spatula until a soft dough forms.Turn dough out onto a floured work surface and roll dough into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Brush surface of dough with 2 tablespoons melted butter.

Whisk together the filling ingredients, and spread over top of the dough. Add 1/2 of the bacon and roll dough. Cut into rolls and place in the prepared pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar if desired.

Bake in the preheated oven until rolls are set, 20 to 25 minutes.
Beat confectioners’ sugar, milk, maple syrup, and cinnamon together until smooth add water if needed to create glaze consistency. Top hot cinnamon rolls frosting glaze and the remaining bacon. Cool and serve, Enjoy!
