  1. In a small bowl with warm milk, dissolve your yeast. In a large bowl, combine sugar, butter, eggs, salt, yeast mixture and 2 cups flour; beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will still be a little sticky).

  2. Knead dough onto a floured surface about 6 to 8 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Turn in a greased bowl, to ensure it is all covered.

  3. Top bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour until doubled.

  4. Mix brown sugar, cinnamon, and bacon in a small bowl, set aside. Punch down and divide dough in half on a lightly floured surface.

  5. Roll each portion into an 11×8-inch rectangle. Brush with one tablespoon melted butter and sprinkle with half of the brown sugar mixture.

  6. Starting with a long side, roll up jelly-roll style and pinch seam to seal. Cut into 8 slices. Repeat steps with remaining dough, butter and sugar mixture.

  7. Cut side down, place eight slices in each pan. Cover with kitchen towels let rise in a warm place about 1 hour or until doubled in size.

  8. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

  9. For frosting, beat all ingredients until well blended. Spread over warm rolls and top with more chopped bacon pieces.
