How to Make Maple Bacon Cinnamon Rolls


I love making cinnamon rolls. This is something I have grown up making with my dad around the holidays.


Now that I am older, I make cinnamon rolls all the time. Today I’m going to be showing you how to make maple bacon cinnamon rolls. I didn’t follow a recipe for making this, but you can use Pioneer Woman’s cinnamon roll recipe as a reference as needed. The ingredients you will need to make these cinnamon rolls are: milk, white sugar, vegetable/bacon grease, yeast, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, bacon, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, maple syrup, and powdered sugar. These ingredients will be used to make the dough, filling, and frosting. (See specific measurements below)



To make the cinnamon roll dough I start by steeping my milk. You will need to add the milk, oil or bacon grease (I did a mix of the 2), and white sugar. This mixture will need to be cooked on medium heat for around 5 minutes, until the top of the milk starts to foam. While this is happening take your precooked bacon, and chop it into

tiny bits. After milk begins to foam, let it cool to a warm temperature and add yeast. Let your yeast sit in the warm milk mixture for 2 minutes. Lastly add your flour, bacon bits (Leave about a ¼ cup for garnish). Incorporate this all into the milk mixture, and it should become a sticky dough. Let your dough sit for an hour, with a towel or loose plastic wrap covering the pot of dough. 



After the dough has rested for an hour, add an additional cup of flour, baking soda, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Your dough should be a little sticky, but be able to pull fr

would on toast). Next, add brown sugar, white sugar, salt, and cinnamon all over the butter. Spread this all evenly out over the dough, making sure to get the edges. After you have added the filling, roll the dough from the longside, into a long snake looking roll of dough (Make sure you tightly roll the dough). Lastly you are going to want to cut your rolls into your desired thickness, should have around 12 cinnamon rolls.


You are going to bake your cinnamon rolls for 40 minutes at 350f. You can chill your cinnamon rolls overnight for more proofing time. While cinnamon rolls are baking, add powdered sugar, a little bit of milk, maple syrup, and salt. Mix this all together to form your frosting (The consistency should be a th
