Bacon Roll-Ups

This family recipe dates back to the 1930s, when my grandmother started making her clever breakfast roll-ups. —Janet Abate, North Brunswick, New Jersey

    Awesome recipe! Love it on weekends. Can be done on stovetop or in oven I use a rack over a sheet pan, spray the rack though. Bake at 350. Just as an aside, I have to say, I am extremely surprised at the number of nasty, snotty remarks to the one lady asking about baking. Obviously she DID READ the recipe, she was asking an alternative. Seriously, be nice. Don’t be hateful and rude.

    Anybody tried finishing these in the oven after a quick browning in the pan on the stove ? Maybe try lightly cooking the bacon 1st to remove most of the fat but still pliable enough to wrap around the balls. Also add some veggies ti the onion sauté mixture for more nutrition for breakfast.

    If you read the recipe, it clearly states FRY IN A FRYING PAN.

    There are some people who just doesn't follow through in reading the directions. Quote: "In a large skillet, cook bacon roll-ups on all sides over medium heat for 18 minutes or until bacon is crisp and a thermometer inserted into stuffing reads at least 160°. Drain on paper towels."

    That’s because your supposed to fry it in a pan not the oven.

    What is the oven temperature? Not mentioned in the directions. Will try at 350 and see how it goes.
