Orange rolls cooked in oranges over a fire

Jun 16, 2010 by

First, a big giant welcome to all the new users from Pinterest and Pillsbury.  I hope you enjoy TrulySimple and let me know what you think.

We Went camping with our friends to Pismo Beach state park over the weekend and had a great time.  We love Pismo Beach and especially love eating at Splash’s Cafe.  They have the best clam chowder in the world.

I love camping and I love eating while camping.  It just all tastes better for some reason.

For breakfast on the last day, we tried out something fun with the kids and created some great orange rolls that we cooked inside of oranges over the fire.  My wife got this recipe from a friend and we through we would try it out, and it turned out great.

You will need:

  • Oranges
  • Pillsbury Grands! Orange Flavor Rolls
  • A Camp fire

Madison was my little helper for this and she did a great job.

Cut the oranges in half.

DISCLAIMER #1: No children were harmed in the making of these orange rolls.  Yes kids can use knives safely when supervised by adults.

scoop out the insides

DISCLAIMER #2: All of the orange bits we scooped out were eaten and not wasted.

Grab the Pillsbury Grands! Orange Flavor Rolls and put one in each orange half.

Put the oranges onto a baking sheet or something you can throw on top a fire

Once the rolls have risen pull them off of the fire.  Watch that they don’t burn if you have a hot fire.

Now you eat them and enjoy the morning campfire.

These were a big hit with all the kids as well as the adults.  We were all clamoring to eat these as we sat around the morning campfire.

Try these next time you are camping

Ben…

Thanks for all the comments on this post but WOW some of them are crazy!  Again, all parts of the oranges were eaten and no children cut off their limbs while helping make them.

    Love the idea… Totally going to do this with my Girl scouts at our next camp. i am always puzzled when we get new girls and they aren’t allowed to do anything in life. It’s sad really. As my oldest is now 17 and in highschool. And we get kids dropped in as newbies every year. Who are afraid of camping, not allowed to use knives, never been away from mom for a night, not allowed to cook, not expected to help or clean up.
    Really people you aren’t teaching your kids to be self sufficient at all. I’m proud to say that now between my 10 yr old and the 17 yr old. Either one of them are Jr. bosses. They step in take over and run things efficiently, cleanly and conservatively. They have run full events and campouts. And left the adults standing there smiling……. That’s when you pat yourself on the back. Because you know they WILL survive and thrive. And not expect handouts……
    More people need to help themselves and their families by allowing kids to explore and thrive SAFELY. But be prepared with first aid training and a first aid kit… Little known fact that’s what first aid kits are made for. LOL

    What could possibly be heartbreaking about this?
    Ya, six years late in the question, but still wondering…..

    Hahahahahaha, seriously?
    At what age should a kid start learning to handle everyday things?
    I grew up when many (if not most) kids had a pocket knife and used them, not to mention kids during hunting seasons having a gun in their vehicle so they could hunt before or after school.

    How *do* kids function now-a-days and how will they function as adults?
    Teach them when they are young.

    Some of us still use the term ‘tinfoil’ ;-)

Worked out great though there was great skepticism while they were cooking. Concerns of over cooking, under cooking and orange flavor abounded. But then someone dared take a first bite, all concerns were quelled by the look of pure bliss! The slight orange flavor that is infused in these made them some of the best cinnamon rolls I’ve had in quite some time!

    Thank you soo much for sharing such a fun recipe!

    People have become such terrified idiots that they want to wrap their kids, mummy-like, in layers of cotton batting and asbestos to protect them from *everything*. It’s gotten utterly insane! I’m SO glad we don’t have kids – I’m afraid that I’d spend too much of my time arguing with school officials and other parents over what to allow my kids to do than what NOT to let them do. *eyeroll* Good Lord Agnes! My folks sent me to week-long summer camp during the 70s. I carried a *knife*, got bitten by bugs, lived in the rain in both tents and cabins with no a/c (GASP!!), there were NO special diets for every kid who had an allergy (if a kid had an allergy, they – wait for it – avoided that food! The entire camp wasn’t restricted. Whod’a'thunk, right?) No one really cared who was what religion. We all were what we were, and enjoyed learning about others. We even earned beads for attending the church of another group mate’s faith. Was there any teasing? Sure, some, but not much. Not in Campfire, anyway. Most of my problems were in school. We had balloon fights, went streaking, skinny-dipping, slept under the stars, “attacked” other cabins, had monstrous thunderstorms, sometimes had to slide all the way down very long-inclined, hills in the sloppy, viscous, mud in the dark, twisty woods because it had rained for several days and there were no safety precautions other than our own precious little tootsies and one another for physical support. Sometimes without flashlights! WHEE! And this was across a big river from a military prison! (And boy, did we love to scare one another with tales of the escaped prisoners who came over in the dark to murder us in our sleep…MUhahahahah!)
    HONestly. People have become such marshmallows. I feel for today’s kids, the ones who don’t experience life because Mommy and Daddy would rather they grow fat & insulated playing Nintendo. *smh*
    GO CAMPING!
