This Happened This Morning
I usually am not much of a fan of wrapping bacon in things, around things, or under things. I think it's because I'm not a fan of taking something that is pretty good by itself and manipulating it with something more powerful and dominant like bacon. It's got a weird, twisted Fifty Shades of Grey feel to it that I just can't support.
Maybe this is different, or maybe it isn't, really. I saw the Mad Genius Tips video by Justin Chapple (here at Food & Wine), and thought it didn't look too hard and would maybe taste okay.
In a word, they are sublime. And actually easy to do, if you use the ones in the can. Frozen cinnamon rolls, I expect, would be more difficult. Chapple tops his with maple syrup, but I used the frosting that came in the can. Just a thin strip around the top of the roll, because one of the reasons I don't do cinnamon rolls all that much is that I'm not a fan of the thick, cement-y icing that usually hides the roll.
So. Sweet + smoky + spicy-yeasty = sublime.
Just in time for Easter brunch, folks.
