    I'm always looking for new ideas for campfire foods, and I think I may have just found a new favorite. I haven't tried it yet, but I will be as soon as we go camping again. Orange Peel Cinnamon Rolls

    Hi...


    Checked out the recipe, and it sounds great. I know that many things can be cooked in orange peel halves. Will have to try it.

    I wonder if the orange peel 'flavor' goes into the buns.

    I have had these and the flavor does mingle with the cinnamon and roll. I never made them but my friend has. They are really good! The kids helped make them too - it was very easy.

    Simple but yummy. I don't think I can wait till I go camping to try this. Maybe I'll grill some this weekend. Thanks I think these will be a hit with the grandkids.

    I may not wait until we go camping again either. They sound really good and I may try them for Christmas morning. I might actually try a few different variations, I have a tone of cinnamon roll recipes.

    I love to make orange rolls at home with lots of orange zest in the dough and the glaze, so if that orangey essence gets into the cinnamon rolls, it's probably very tasty.

    As much as I dislike oranges I can not disagree here. Using orange peels as a cup might work but I have seen so many other things its just nutty. Did you know you can use them in your fridge to keep the smells down?

    The kids will love to have cinnamon rolls for breakfast when we go camping. This really looks like a fun recipe and sounds delicious too.

    I didn't know that! I have seen a lot of camping recipes that use orange peels as cups, brownies, cinnamon rolls of course, cake, I've even seen someone use an orange cup to heat up chocolate chips and marshmallows. I might have to stick one in the fridge and see if it helps, I can't get rid of the onion smell!

    Orange, lemon, and lime peels are great for getting rid of smells. I love them. For really tough smells, baking soda and a thorough scrub usually does the trick.

    I'm definitely trying this orange roll recipe!

    Yummy! Those look so delicious! Very simple too. I love anything orange flavored. Thanks for sharing! I will definitely have to try putting them together. They would be an especially nice addition to breakfast.

    I am going to suggest this one for my boys to make at Boy Scout camp. It looks like fun and something that all the boys can handle. Thank you for posting this.
