Dutch Oven Italian Pull Apart Bread

Debi From recipesformyboys Mon, Aug 18 2014

I have wanted to cook in a Dutch Oven for the longest time.  This summer, I decided I would wait no more and bought a Lodge Camp Dutch Oven.  What an amazing way to cook!  And this, Dutch Oven Italian Pull Apart Bread, using Rhodes Bake N Serv Dinner Rolls, was the perfect recipe to start with!

Fantastic Dutch Oven Italian Bread made easy with Rhodes Rolls. 

 Pepperoncinis, artichokes, pepperoni and black olives topped with an Italian Cheese Blend...



Remove 14 Rhodes Bake N Serv Dinner Rolls from freezer.  Cut into quarters while partially frozen.   
Dice toppings. By all means, add more if you desire.  You can use prosciutto instead of pepperoni.  Assorted olives would work well, also.  If you don't like marinated artichokes, do not us them.  However, I do encourage you to try them in this recipe.  You will be surprised how well you like them.  
Mix olive oil, melted margarine, juice from pepperoncinis and seasoning when you take the Rhodes Bake N Serv Dinner Rolls out of the freezer.  
 Toss quartered rolls in olive oil mixture, making certain to coat each piece. 
Add 1 cup Italian Cheese Blend.


   Layer with toppings.  

Let rise until double in size.  Add 1/2 cup of the remaining Italian cheese. 
 Place 8 hot charcoal briquettes under dutch oven and 16 (I had an extra one) on lid to cook at 350 degrees F. 
 Cook 15 minutes.  With appropriate lid lifter, carefully turn lid and dutch oven 1/2 turn in opposite directions.  
 I just love my Lodge Camp Dutch Oven and I am seriously thinking about getting another one in the near future.  A win/win for certain......I could cook more than one of these amazing Dutch Oven Recipes from Rhodes at once!
Looks ready to me!
  Go ahead and add remaining 1/2 cup Italian cheese.  Replace lid for 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

I know you want to eat it right now, don't you? 

 You will definitely want to make multiples of this so you can enjoy it also!  You know how that goes, you feed everyone else first and then, well, it's all gone and you wish you had eaten first. Yes, you definitely want to make more than one!
