Herb and Bacon Rolls

The temperature around here has gone down quite a bit, but more importantly the HUMIDITY is gone! WHOOOO HOOOO!! For the time being anyway. So I was in the mood to have the oven on and make something with yeast. These little guys were easy to make, yeah they were made with yeast but I didn't have to knead them.  To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.

 Luckily I had all the dried herbs I needed in my handy dandy spice rack. I didn't put the sesame seeds on them though, they've got naked tops! This recipe came from Southern Food, it was posted by Diana Rattray. These Herb and Bacon Rolls were a nice addition to my dinner tonight.

Bacon bacon bacon! I'm going to make a huge batch of these and freeze them so I can draw them out one by one...unless Ben gets ahold of them. And then they'll be gone in one night and I'll have a very bloated, whiny husband on my hands.
