Campfire Orange Cinnamon Rolls

These couldn't have been more simple, inspired or delicious if I had figured this out myself ! We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary with a camping trip, and one of the bridesmaids, Angie Makovec, made these as a special breakfast treat for all of us. She learned this trick from another of our mutual friends, Ann Sandstrom. 

I know I usually don't use pre-packaged foods, but when you are camping, convenience and size are big considerations, as well as taste. Taste wins here. These are the pre-packaged, pop open cinnamon rolls, baked over the campfire, in half an orange. If you aren't camping, you could also do this in the oven. I have to say, I was so impressed with the flavor, and simplicity, I had to share. So, here it is!

The conversation resulting was, what else could we bake in the orange halves? How about other citrus ? 

Campfire Orange Cinnamon Rolls
1 package small pop open cinnamon rolls (with frosting) 
6 oranges 
Cut oranges in half and juice, and remove the majority of the pulp. Save the juice to enjoy when your rolls are baked! Place one roll in the center of each orange. Put the orange halves on a cookie sheet and cover with foil. Place over the campfire, preferable on a grate, and let bake 10-15 minutes until rolls are golden brown. Remove from fire, and spread glaze over the top.
