soooo ... assuming i give this a shot ... (forgetting the ** holy cholesterol, batman ** )  would you cook the bacon a bit first?  and just how much bacon grease would go right into that dough?

Absolutely did.

They were great, see the blog article.

I would precook the bacon, but I have to confess, I'm feeling 10 pounds heavier just looking at the picture!  LOL

Related question - do you serve Pillsbury to your guests?   Or do you make rolls from scratch?

We've been using box mixes with additions, like fresh apples, or strussel topping or mashed banana.

Haven't made the cinnamon rolls because I thought they are too recognizable as Pillsbury.

I have used them from the can before, but only the brand & type you saw in the picture. I don't have time or energy to do from scratch. What I will mostly do is buy them made from one of our local supermarket bakery. They're wonderful. I'll scrape the cream cheese frosting off the top, heat the rolls and reapply the frosting. I've had guests swoon over them! When they ask for the recipe I tell them I can't give it out because it's a family secret. HA! Only my family knows I don't make them myself.

If we do something like cinnamon rolls they are definitely out of a can. I'll make muffins or breads from scratch but rolls and biscuits are poppin' fresh!

Seashanty is a former innkeeper. I don't think any of us serve tinned biscuits as such. This is just a clever idea to share.  I know someone who used to buy frozen biscuits and pound them out and roll them up like this with cinna and pecans, but not the tinned type.

I agree to precook somewhat. All depends on how long the rolls are in the oven. No way the bacon will cook rolled up like that. At least to the point where you'd be happy with it.

I would love to know if you could put these together in a dutch oven over a campfire? Just as shown. 

Ah ha like I thought, precook it, and here it is in camping recipe, so that is nice.

This person cooks the bacon first

it has to be one pot cooking if it is for camping...

I would use the pre/par cooked bacon. I use Hormel. I don't think any bacon will crisp up in the roll, but with the fully cooked kind you don't have to worry about it being raw.

Try it and find out! Might be worth cooking them on a wire rack so the grease runs out...I can imagine the scent, wow!
