#SundaySupper: Recipes with Bacon (2024)

August 14, 2016August 18, 2016 ~ lk529

I often find myself sitting on recipes waiting for the perfect time to share them. I simply leave un-blogged dishes on my camera and look through my pictures when I plan out my schedule. It’s very rare that I’ll have something raring and ready to go for a blogging event before the event is announced. Such is not the case with today’s Sunday Supper! As soon as I saw the theme of Bacon announced I was prepared! Gasp! Feeling prepared is something that comes very infrequently now that I’m mothering two small boys – the youngest of whom just started solo standing and trying desperately to take those first steps and the oldest who is embracing those terrible twos at least three days a week.

I find it fitting that the bacon theme follows closely behind the corn themed Sunday Supper. Was it coincidental or planned? I don’t know, you’d have to ask the masterminds behind Sunday Supper to find out. But did you notice how many glorious corn recipes included bacon? I know mine did! And I’ve paired bacon and corn together before, too in stuffed shells. Double yum. I wonder how many of today’s recipes feature corn! You’ll have to scroll past my recipe to find out. Thanks toErica of The Crumby Cupcakefor hosting this weekend.

The cinnamon rolls I’m sharing today are a play off my favorite recipe that we make every Christmas. Instead of cranberries… bacon! And for the frosting, I used leftover glaze from my 3rd anniversary cupcakes.

Bacon Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Glaze

Ingredients for rolls:

  • 1 C warm water (105-110 deg F)
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 3 tbsp butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 C sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3 1/2 C flour

Ingredients for filling:

  • 6 slices center cut bacon, chopped and cooked
  • 1/2 stick softened butter
  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

Ingredients for glaze:

  • 1 1/2 C powdered sugar
  • 1/2 C milk
  • 1/2 C canola oil
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Stir yeast into the warm water. Let bloom for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle, beat butter, sugar, and salt. Add the egg, beating until combined. Slowly pour in the yeast and water. Beat until combined. Add the flour about one cup at a time, beating until combined after each addition. Once the dough starts to form switch to the dough hook attachment. After all the flour has been added knead the dough for 3 minutes.
  3. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead by hand until smooth.
  4. Place dough in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise to double in size (about 30-60 minutes) in a warm place. (In the microwave or turned off oven)
  5. Roll dough out on a floured surfaceinto a rectangle. Spread the dough evenly with the butter. Sprinkle with brown sugar, cinnamon, and cooked bacon. (Reserve some bacon for garnish, if desired.) Roll the dough into a log, lengthwise. Cut the dough into 2″ cinnamon rolls. Place cut side down in a 9×13 casserole dish.
  6. Cover dough with a towel and let rise for 30 minutes before baking. The rolls should have doubled in size again. (Other options: Freeze the rolls and after thawing let rise until doubled in size or place in refrigerator overnight after rising, bring to room temperature before baking.)
  7. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake another 7 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool, slightly.
  8. Meanwhile, make glaze. Whisk together all of the ingredients for the frosting. Pour overthe cinnamon rolls! Garnish with extra bacon.
