  • 3 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided

  • 4 eggs, whisked

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 (17.5 ounce) can refrigerated cinnamon roll dough with icing (such as Pillsbury® Grands!®)

  • 1 ¼ cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 5 tablespoons cream cheese, softened


  1. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels.

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch pie plate.

  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Pour in eggs; cook, stirring often with a spatula, until soft and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Remove cinnamon rolls from the packaging. Stand each roll on its side and press down into a rectangle, trapping the cinnamon sugar layers. Roll each rectangle into a thin 6-inch circle.

  5. Spread 1 tablespoon cream cheese over each circle of dough. Layer 1/4 cup scrambled egg, 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese, and 1 tablespoon bacon pieces on top. Bring dough up and over the filling, pinching edges together to enclose filling completely.

  6. Place rolls seam-side down in the prepared pie plate.

  7. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a small microwave-safe bowl until melted, about 10 seconds. Brush over rolls. Season with salt and pepper.

  8. Bake in the preheated oven, rotating halfway, until rolls are a deep golden brown, 20 to 22 minutes. Transfer pie plate to a wire rack; let rolls cool for 15 minutes before serving.
