Spicy Rolls with Bacon & Cheddar

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

For Dough
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup milk

For Filling
6 strips bacon, chopped
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium skillet, add the bacon and cook over high/medium heat until crispy. Remove to a plate lined with paper towel to allow the excess fat to drain and reserve the bacon fat from the pan. In a bowl, add and mix flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Add the butter, use your hands to mix the butter really well into the flour mixture until crumbly. Stir in the milk to form a soft and sticky dough. Transfer dough to a floured surface, knead a couple times, roll out dough into a rectangle. Using a brush, brush about 1 tablespoon of the reserved bacon fat onto the rolled out dough, sprinkle the crispy bacon, cheese, parsley and red pepper flakes. Roll up the dough to form a long log, cut long into slices with a knife. In a buttered baking dish (I used a 9x13 baking dish), place the rolls and bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy!
