Maple-Bacon Rolls

Maple-Bacon Rolls


It is almost time for the 2010 Pillsbury Bake-Off.  Pillsbury has all the finalist’s recipes posted on their website.  There are so many wonderful recipes!  I quickly made a list of several I wanted to try.  I decided to start with the Maple-Bacon Rolls for breakfast.  Sweet & Salty!  These were super easy and tasted great.  I used turkey bacon and a can of reduced-fat cresent rolls to help cut down on the calories and fat – with no sacarafice in taste.  These little rolls were a nice change from our usual crescent cinnamon rolls.  I really liked that it only took a few minutes to get these in the oven and didn’t involve messing up a million dishes.  I also really liked the bacon – who doesn’t?!

(Printable Recipe)

  • 10 slices precooked bacon (or turkey bacon)
  • 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury® Crescent Recipe Creations® refrigerated seamless dough sheet
  • 3 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 5 Tbsp maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup powdered sugar

Heat oven to 375°F.

Microwave bacon as directed on package until very crisp. Drain on paper towels. Set aside to cool. Generously spray large cookie sheet (dark cookie sheet not recommended) with Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray, or line with cooking parchment paper. Unroll dough sheet on work surface; press into 12×8-inch rectangle.

In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of the butter and 2 tablespoons of the syrup with fork or wire whisk until smooth and creamy. Spread mixture evenly over dough, covering to edges. Finely chop bacon; reserve 1 tablespoon for garnish. Spread remaining bacon evenly over butter mixture. Starting at short end (I started on the long end), roll up dough; pinch edge to seal. Wrap roll in plastic wrap; refrigerate 5 minutes to chill so dough will be easier to cut. (I skipped chilling the dough and they sliced just fine)

Unwrap roll; place seam side down on cutting board. Using serrated knife, cut roll into 12 (about 3/4-inch) slices. Place slices, cut sides up, on cookie sheet.

Bake 8 to 13 minutes or until light golden brown. Place waxed paper under cooling rack. Remove rolls from cookie sheet to cooling rack; cool 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix powdered sugar, remaining 1 tablespoon butter and remaining 3 tablespoons syrup with wire whisk until smooth. Drizzle icing over rolls. Garnish with reserved bacon.
