Cinnamon Rolls Grilled in Orange Peels!

Cinnamon Rolls Grilled in Orange Peels!
 Sounds crazy, right? Well, that's just my kind of recipe! If you're a regular reader of my blog you know this is a recipe I just had to try! Within days of spotting this on the Internet it was on my plate...and it was soooo VERY yummy!
The flavor from the orange peelslightly permeated the cinnamon buns! This is usually a treat made while camping, but since I'm not a camping kind of gal, I made it on my backyard gas grill. So easy to make using those store bought refrigerator cinnamon rolls in the cardboard tubes! You just need to cut 4 oranges in half and scoop out the inside with a spoon. I didn't waste the inside of the was used to make Sangria and served the same night with dinner!

I used a disposable foil pan. Cover the pan with foil and grill at preheated 400 degrees F (lowest heat setting on my 4 burner gas grill) for 15 minutes. Remove from grill, cool slightly and then add the icing! Serve warm. Just unpeel and eat! I found the directions for this recipe here.
Give it a try! I know you will like it and it's a great conversation piece!

4 navel oranges - cut in half and insides scooped out
1 package refrigerator cinnamon rolls - 8 count

Use a spoon to scoop out the insides of the orange halves.
It's okay if a little of the orange pulp remains in the peel.
Then place one cinnamon roll in each orange peel.
Place all the filled orange peels on a disposable foil tray and loosely cover with tin foil.
Turn on all burners of the gas grill and set to low heat. When temp reaches 400 degrees F
place covered tray inside grill. Close grill and cook for 15 minutes.
Then remove from grill and cool slightly before adding icing.
Then remove from peel and eat!
