Cheesy Bacon Garlic PinWheel Recipe


Disclosure: This Cheesy recipe post has been sponsored by Fleischmann’s.

This year, Fleischmann’s Yeast, Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade Baking Mixes and Karo Syrup – trusted baking products that have been kitchen staples for more than 100 years – launched the Baking A Difference campaign to benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign to help end childhood hunger in America.

To help spread the word about this very important cause I was challenged to take the Fleischmann’s Classic Dinner Roll recipe and make a recipe other than plain dinner rolls.  I decided to go the savory route with my Cheesy Bacon Pinwheel recipe.

 How to make Cheesy Bacon and Pinwheel Recipe

This Cheesy Bacon & Garlic Pinwheel recipe turned out so good! The rolls/pinwheels were so tender and cheesy. I did not alter the Fleischmann’s Classic Dinner Roll recipe. I followed the original recipe up until the point of where you form the dough into rolls.

Instead I rolled the dough out into a large rectangle. After the dough was rolled out then I spread some fresh garlic butter over the dough, topping it with a cheddar cheese mix with a bit of cream cheese. Then I sprinkled some crispy bacon over the cheese.

Next I rolled up the dough (just like you would a jelly roll) and cut it into pinwheels. After baking it I then topped the pinwheels with more cheese and bacon. Returning it to the oven until the cheese was melted.

Cheesy Bacon Garlic Pinwheels


Bacon Cheddar recipe, Cheesy Roll recipe,

There has been a number of questions about this recipe & the shredded cheese and cream cheese mixture in my ingredient list. Kraft has a shredded cheese that includes a touch of cream cheese. {Kraft touch of philadelphia shredded triple cheddar} This is the cheese that I used to fill and top the Cheesy Bacon Garlic Pinwheels. You do not need to buy any cream cheese or add any cream cheese to the recipe. Just purchase the bag of Kraft Shredded cheese with a touch of cream cheese already included

Feel free to send me an email if you have any more questions.

    If I hadn’t been been baking all day I would get back in there right now and make these pinwheels! Bacon makes everything better. Happy holidays!

  2. Nancy A. says

    I love bacon and extra crispy! My son could eat bacon all day, he really loves it and puts some in his rice every time. Would love to win this awesome prize!

  3. Donna T. says

    You can’t go wrong with this recipe, it has EVERYTHING a person likes. Cheese & Bacon make me & my family HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!

  4. Dorothy Teel says

    I love bacon and I love to bake it in the oven and it cooks evenly, does not curl up and makes the house smell great. I love to cut the pack in half and weave three pieces straight with three pieces over and bake in the oven and it makes a perfect size for a BLT sandwich, it is so yummy and does not fall off the bread

  5. Amy L says

    I love eating bacon, cooked until fairly crisp. BLTs are my favorite sandwich, and they’re even better with avocado slices.

  6. says

    I dont know a single person who DOESN’T love bacon!! I love bacon crunchy… soft tastes and feels way to weird to me. But not burnt! My favorite is to eat bacon with BLT’s! I HATED bacon when I was pregnant. I have no clue why! Its so good!

  7. Tina W says

    I lovelovelove bacon! I like it crispy for breakfast, in a BLT, crumbled on top of my potato soup, etc etc.
    But I absolutely draw the line at chocolate covered bacon. Enough already. Stop the madness.

  8. Alecia says

    Bacon for me must me deliciously crispy. I want to be able to break it without any resistance. That is when it is to die for. <3

  9. Cindy says

    We LOVE bacon! It’s a favorite for everyone in my family….and the crispier the better! We have t-shirts, cups, etc. showing our love of bacon. Yum!!

  10. says

    Sorry, I am not a fan of bacon. If fact I don’t eat much meat at all. I do love cheese though, and I am sure I could find something to add in place of the bacon. These look so tasty! If I did eat bacon, it must be very, very, very crispy.

  11. says

    Wowzers! These look sooo GOOD! With or without the bacon I reckon they’d be delicious! Who can say no to cheese and garlic? Of course bacon takes it up a notch (a huge notch in my opinion). The post hath been pinned in my “Recipes to Try” board.

  12. says

    We don’t eat bacon but I’m sure I could substitute ground turkey – what do you think? Thank you for linking up with us at the #WWDParty, I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

    Everybody loves bacon! Especially the crispy ones. And these cheesy bacon garlic pinwheels look so delish! Cheesy overload and crispy bacon are the best. I love these!
