  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Canola Oil
  • 1/2 package 1 Teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
  • 2-1/4 cups Flour Divided
  • 1 teaspoons Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon scant Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon heaping Baking Powder
  • 6 TBS Melted Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Ground Cinnamon


  • 1/2 package of bacon cooked well done SAVE THE GREASE
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • A generous sprinkle of cinnamon


  • 3/4 – 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 drops of maple extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons of bacon grease
  • A splash of left over coffee
  • A splash of milk


  • Make the dough the night before so it can firm up in the refrigerator over night.
  • Heat milk, oil, and 1/2 cup sugar don’t let it boil.
  • Cool until lukewarm.
  • Add yeast and 2 cups flour.
  • Stir gently and cover with a tea towel, allowing it to rise for 1 hour.
  • After 1 hour, add remaining flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • Set aside.
  • The next morning while the bacon is cooking roll out the dough into a large rectangle.
  • Use additional flour on your surface to roll out the dough.
  • Once the bacon is cooked mix 2-3 tablespoons of bacon grease with the melted butter, reserve another 2-3 tablespoons of grease for the icing.
  • Add 1/8th of a teaspoon of maple extract to the butter grease mixture, then pour and spread evenly over the rolled out dough.
  • Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon evenly over the dough.
  • Then crumble 2/3rds of the cooked bacon on to the dough.
  • Roll up the dough being sure to make a tight roll.
  • Cut and place into a pan cut side down, not too tightly packed.
  • Allow the rolls to rise at least 30 minutes to 2 hours (the longer the better).
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes.
  • While the rolls are baking mix all the ingredients for the icing together.
  • Use your judgement – add more milk if it’s too thick, more powdered sugar if it’s too thin.
  • When the rolls are done baking, pour on the icing and topped with the left over bacon.
