bacon cinnamon rollI'm beyond over the bacon-product hype. Bacon lube, bacon lattes, and bacon air fresheners, no thanks. But that doesn't mean bacon itself should be blamed, because it -- when used for good purposes -- is GOOD. And cinnamon rolls are one of those good purposes.

They are a perfect decadent brunch treat, and I love making them when we have overnight guests. The smoky flavor of bacon combined with a sweet, gooey roll, makes for one marvelous morning. Add fruit and coffee, and the meal is complete.

This recipe from Food.com is easy and incredible.
