A few weeks ago I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest and knew it wouldn’t take much to convince Nate that we should give it a try. This is a great breakfast camp recipe that will leave everyone drooling while it cooks and smiling after they woof them down. These Bacon-Wrapped Cinnamon Rolls are delicious and better yet – incredibly easy to make on the camp fire.

Camp Recipe: Dutch Oven Bacon-Wrapped Cinnamon Rolls


  • 5 Strips Bacon (thick cut works best)
  • 1 Tube Refrigerator Cinnamon Roll Dough with Icing
  • Maple Syrup (optional)


  1. Light camp fire and get about 26 coals hot and ready to go.
  2. Heat pan and briefly fry bacon strips for 2 - 3 minutes, making sure the bacon is slightly cooked, but still soft. Remove from pan and pat with paper towel to remove excess grease.
  3. Unroll each individual cinnamon roll. Place bacon on strip of cinnamon roll dough and re-roll the dough back into the cinnamon roll shape. See this picture for step-by-step photos.
  4. Spray Dutch Oven with non-stick spray and place all five cinnamon rolls inside.
  5. Place Dutch Oven on the camp fire. Make sure about 10 coals are on the bottom of the Dutch Oven and about 16 are on the top to help it reach a temperature of about 350 degrees.
  6. Cook for 25 minutes or until cinnamon rolls are cooked through. Remove Dutch Oven from fire.
  7. Drizzle cinnamon rolls with icing and maple syrup (optional). Serve warm and enjoy each bite!
