While mindless cruising the internet one night, Barry and I found a picture of a cinnamon roll with bacon in it… Yeah baby! I made these for breakfast the other day and served them with eggs to Barry and Dad. Dad, then took a baggie of them to work for a snack .
Sweet Bacon Rolls
- 1 pkg Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
- 2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 Tbsp Splenda brown sugar
- 1 tsp granulated Splenda
- 8 slices of Thin & Crispy Turkey Bacon (Butterball)
Preheat over to 350 F. Lay out a piece of plastic/saran wrap. Roll the crescent roll pieces out and pinch together the seems to create 1 large rectangle. Cover the dough with another piece of wrap and proceed to rollover it with a rolling pin or can, to make the dough seamless and to thin it out. Make sure you roll out the dough so a slice of bacon can perfectly lie across it. Remove the top plastic wrap.
Combine the cinnamon, applesauce, and two Splenda blends. Brush the sweet paste over your rolled-out dough, to reach all the edges. Lay the bacon evenly spaced over the paste-covered dough. Begin to roll the dough up. I find the bottom layer of plastic wrap, really helps to evenly roll the dough. Slice the log into 8 pieces and arrange on a parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes, and enjoy!

They were so buttery and tasty and went perfectly with eggs! I would most definitely suggest this for a bunch, a light on the go breakfast/snack, or to pair with eggs, like we did.
We had one left that I left on the counter, before running a few errands. It mysteriously disappeared, but the wrapper magically appeared next to someone’s bed and a paw print was found at the scene of the crime…. Apparently Labs like these roll, too!
