Apple Pie in Cast Iron Pan.

Bacon and Cheese Pull-aparts

(recipe from


14 dinner rolls (thawed, still cold)

1/4 cup melted butter

8 strips of cooked bacon (broken into small pieces)

2 cups cheddar cheese (grated)

Temperature Control for Dutch Oven using Briquets: bake at 350°F, oven top 16, oven bottom 8


Cut the rolls in half. Then, pour the melted butter into the 12-inch Dutch oven. Take the rolls and begin rolling them in the butter, giving each a coat of butter. Arrange these inside the Dutch oven. Sprinkle the tops of the rolls with bacon and cheese. Use as much or as little as you’d like. After garnishing, take the lid and cover the Dutch Oven. Let the rolls rise until their size is doubled. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350°F. When finished, remove from heat and enjoy.
