I make this breakfast every time we go camping for more than one night. The first morning I make campfire breakfast burritos, but on the second day, I like to do something different and sweet. It’s always a hit when I make these. Especially for those camping friends that are used to hotdogs and marshmallows being their only camping food.

I like to prep these before we go, but if I don’t have time I just make sure I have a knife and a cutting board packed with me.

Here’s how you can make your very own campfire orange cinnamon rolls:

[recipe title=”Campfire Orange Cinnamon Rolls” servings=”4-8″ time=”15 minutes”]


1 Can of 8  Pillsbury Orange Cinnamon Rolls
4 Large Oranges, cut in half
Heavy Duty Aluminum foil
Cast Iron Skillet


Cut Oranges in half and slice a small amount of each end to make it have a level flat bottom. Scoop out all the orange flesh, leaving just the peel. Set aside orange flesh. Place one cinnamon roll in each orange half. Then place each half on it’s level bottom in the cast iron skillet. Cover with aluminum foil. Watch the rolls to prevent burning. Once the rolls have risen, add the orange icing while they’re still hot.

You can prep the oranges ahead of time to save time, utensils, and a mess.

Serve with a side of orange flesh.

This recipe is perfect for a morning fire and doesn’t have to go on hot coals.

It really impresses hungry fishermen.
