You can use any frozen dinner rolls, we prefer Rhodes, just as this recipe suggests. The recipe does take a little bit of prep time such as cooking the bacon. But we always just do that at home before we leave, cut it up and keep it in the cooler. You will also need to let the dough rise once you get everything in the Dutch oven. Just watch if it is really hot because they could rise much quicker. If you keep in the refrigerator or cooler, you can slow the rise to take overnight, which can work out great to deliver these a breakfast treat.

Save time in camp by preparing the bacon ahead of time. In any case, you need to build in time for the dough to rise. This can take anywhere from one hour to five depending on the temperature.
