Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

Marvelous savory & sweet combo and super easy to make. My own take on this is to use maple-flavored bacon. Goes so good with the cinnamon roll crust. Also I made it with crumbled maple breakfast sausage as well, very good but I prefer the taste and texture of crunchy bacon in the soft sweet dough. Sometime in the future I am also thinking of doing this but using a soft boiled quail egg (or at least a small chicken egg) in the center of each roll instead of scrambled eggs ... sort of an odd twist on the idea of Scotch Eggs. Experiment and enjoy! Read More

Used a breakfast sandwich maker to make the egg patties and the results were pretty good but the folks eating didn't seem to like this particular combo. Either French toast or bacon and egg people I guess Read More

Well these were yummy but I feel that I could have done better so I'm going to make them again and hope for a 5-star breakfast next time. My mistake was...I didn't buy "Grands"...I bought regular sized cinnamon biscuits which didn't work. They were not big enough so I had to use two biscuits per "bomb." Also I didn't know what to do with the icing from the biscuits? The recipe didn't state so I left it out completely. Wondering if the icing would have added something to the finished product? They were just a bit dry so just maybe this would have helped. All in all this is a great idea for breakfast and I'm determined to get it right next time.:) Read More

Easy to make and yummy. The instructions for rolling the dough are easier to understand by watching the video rather than interpreting the written directions. I tried this mainly to see if it would be a decent breakfast when on the run. While I didn't try freezing any (the first batch disappeared fast) I'm sure they could be. Pop in a microwave and out the door. Before making this I wondered if more ingredients could be added. They could but consider extra space is very limited when bundling up the dough bomb based on the ingredients as written. I nearly pulled the rolls from the oven at about 19 minutes since they were a deep golden brown. Decided to leave them for the full 22 minutes. I found the dough bombs which were touching one another toward the center were a bit doughy when first removed from the oven. The extra 3 minutes and 15 minutes resting time made them just right. I'll definitely make these again and take on recreational outings. Very good recipe Julie! Read More

Hardest thing was to roll the dough into a circle and then to seal it shut after you stuff it. Probably need to make sure you have a lot of dough to start with (grande). This was not too sweet didn't use any icing. Read More
