Meal Review Monday #5: Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

Welcome to to Meal Review Monday, where I review Pinterest recipe finds.

On the menu today: Bacon Cinnamon Rolls by Gimme Some Oven

Bacon rolled up inside cinnamon rolls = the most genius breakfast idea ever!

These were so fast and easy to make, smelled amazing, and tasted good.

Our only complaint was that the bacon didn't get crispy. I mean, I didn't really suppose it would, being cooked inside the cinnamon roll like that, but I went with it anyway. I try to prepare recipes exactly as directed before I review them on Meal Review Mondays, or I don't feel like I'm giving a fair review of the recipe at hand.

Anyway, to be fair, the recipe does say to cook the bacon slightly before rolling it up, I just think it needs to be cooked more than slightly. Next time I make these I will cook it pretty much completely. I anticipate this will make it crack in places as I roll it up inside the cinnamon roll, but I don't care about that; Hubby and I prefer our bacon to be really crispy.

Flavor-wise, though, this recipe is fantastic, especially for something so quick and easy to make.

Final rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars. Crispier bacon would bump this up to 4 stars, and homemade cinnamon rolls would probably take it up even more than that, but then it wouldn't be so quick and easy. ;) However you fix them, though, these are worth making, if for no other reason than that they are fun...and they involve bacon.

Have you tried this recipe? Do you agree with my rating?

    1. Don't they, though? They're a wonderful breakfast treat.

  3. I've have heard of these SO many times from many different guys. I believe they think in terms of: large amount of sugar + sweet + bacon = HEAVEN!!! (After looking at this recipe, I must agree with them!) Thank you for posting!!!

    1. Haha I think you are exactly right in terms of how guys think! I won't say how often I also think in those terms... ;)
