⁉️ FAQ

Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

Why do I have to use microwave bacon in bacon cinnamon rolls?

Microwaveable bacon is pre-cooked. Using raw bacon will result in extremely greasy, inedible cinnamon rolls.

Can I use regular bacon in bacon cinnamon rolls?

You can use regular bacon, but you’ll have to alter the recipe a bit. Cook the bacon first, then crumble it. Add a layer of crumbled bacon to the unrolled cinnamon roll rather than slices of microwave bacon.

Why do you use heavy whipping cream in cinnamon rolls?

Add heavy whipping cream to the bottom of the pan makes super-rich cinnamon rolls. The dough absorbs the cream as it bakes.
