Have you heard of a “Bacon Bar”? It’s pretty much like a baked potato bar layout but with a lot of bacon. Bacon salt, bacon syrup, bacon caramel, thick bacon, Applewood Bacon, Home-style Bacon, and, of course, these Crispy Bacon Cinnamon Roll Twists. Pretty much, you serve bacon with a side of whatever you want: eggs, muffins, cinnamon rolls, and/or jam.

This “party” is perfect for a holiday get-together, game day feast, or casual Sunday brunch. Coming from a family of bacon lovers (all of us could eat a pound of bacon in one sitting), hosting a “Bacon Bar” is perfect, and easy.

My favorite is the Smithfield Hometown Original Bacon because it is versatile. Classically cut, you can use it for almost anything and in any way.  

Even with the rush of the Christmas season being over I shockingly still have the gumption to host get-togethers. I have found the idea of this “Bacon Bar” to be an easy one.

Crispy Bacon Cinnamon Roll Twists – a delicious “twist” on your favorite morning treats. Add in Cream Cheese Frosting, and bring it to a whole new level.



  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 puff pastry sheets
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 lbs. Smithfield Bacon uncooked

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 2 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 tablespoon butter softened
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond or clear vanilla extract optional



  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Dust your countertop with 1 tablespoon of flour.
  • Lay down the puff pastry sheet on top of the floured countertop.
  • Spread softened butter on top of the puff pastry sheet on the counter.
  • In a small mixing bowl stir to combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture on top of the buttered pastry. Use as much or as little of the cinnamon mixture. I use about 1/2 of it and then use the rest later to mix into my frosting.
  • Top the cinnamon and butter with the leftover puff pastry sheet, like pictured. Press down the puff pastry so the two sheets start to stick together.
  • Then gently roll over the puff pastry sheets with a rolling pin, pressing them together and spreading it out.
  • Cut the puff pastry in half the long way, like pictured.
  • Then cut into 24 half-inch slices – making a total of 48 slices total.
  • Grab one slice and spread out to the length of one piece of bacon. Top with one slice of bacon.
  • Top the bacon with one slice of puff pastry, making sure to stretch to the length of the bacon.
  • Then twist the bacon and 2 slices of puff pastry together, like pictured.
  • Set on baking sheet, 12 per pan.
  • Bake 35-45 minutes. *Halfway through baking, I use a paper towel and damp off the twists, to remove some of the extra grease.

  • Remove from oven once the puff pastry is a nice golden brown and bacon is cooked all the way through.
  • Let it rest on the pan for 5 minutes, then gently remove and serve.


  • To make the frosting, beat together cream cheese and melted butter until smooth and there are no cream cheese chunks. 
  • Add in powdered sugar and mix it together by beating on medium-high.
  •  Add in milk one teaspoon at a time, until you get your desired consistency.
  • Pour into a bowl for people to dip their twists in.
