Dutch Oven Bacon Cheese Pull Aparts

Just in time for your summer camping trips, Rhodes blogger Tiffany shows you how to make these yummy pull aparts. Cook these for breakfast or your evening snack. Pack the frozen Rhodes ...

Since Tuesday June 21st was the official beginning of summer, I thought I would blog about one of the best parts of summer….Dutch Oven Baking!! This is one of my favorite things to do when we go camping, but believe it or not…you can do it right in your backyard. All you need to do is set up an area to place the briquettes and oven. As you can see, I just put a few old bricks in my flower bed and poof……instant outdoor oven!

 

Dutch Oven Bacon Cheese Pull-Aparts

They are super easy and delicious for breakfast, a snack, or as a side dish. This is what you will need:

14 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold

1/4 cup butter, melted

2 cups grated cheddar cheese

8 pieces cooked bacon, broken into small pieces

Cut each roll in half and roll in melted butter until fully coated.

Then arrange them in a single layer in the Dutch oven. Be sure to line your Dutch oven with sprayed foil to keep the cheese from sticking.

Next you want to sprinkle the rolls with the cheese and bacon.

Cover with lid and let rise until they double in size. You want to keep an eye on them if it is really hot out, because they will rise much quicker.

I have some friends that do not eat pork, so I also made a version without the bacon. All I did was add some parmesan and garlic spread seasoning to make a yummy garlic cheese pull-apart. Remember that one of the best things about baking, is the ability to improvise and adjust to your taste.

While you're waiting for the rolls to rise, you can start to get your briquettes ready. You can even place the dutch oven near the briquettes if you need to make it a little warmer to help speed the rising. I like to use these chimney-type charcoal starters to get the briquettes ready to use faster.

After the rolls have risen until double in size, bake them at 350°F 20-25 minutes.

Dutch Oven Temperature Control using Briquettes: 350°F in a 12-inch Dutch oven, oven top 16, oven bottom 8 (Tip- The recipe calls for 16 on top and 8 on bottom, but I found I needed more like 10 briquettes on the bottom to keep the rolls from being too doughy.)

Dutch oven baking is fun and delicious, but always be sure to use the proper tools when lifting a lid covered with piping hot briquettes. I will not get into too much detail, but I speak from experience when I say they get hot!! It really helps to have a lid lifter like this one. It keeps your hands away from the heat and it keeps the lid flat while you lift so you don't dump the briquettes into your food.

And here are the bacon cheese pull aparts. Can't you just see your friends and family oohing and aahing when you pull the lid off these? If you're camping, now all you need to do is gather around the campfire to enjoy these pull aparts and some campfire songs and stories. Or if you're at home, this is a great way to keep the cooking heat outside of the house. Either way, have fun with your dutch oven and this delicious recipe!

For the non campers can you bake them in oven? Maybe 350 degrees for 15 minutes?

Instead of cooking the bacon before breaking it up, I wound suggest cutting the bacon into pieces before cooking. Much easier to do and cooks quicker too
