Dutch Oven Sausage Breakfast Pinwheels | Tender bread is filled with sausage and cheese and baked in a Dutch oven. This recipe was designed for camping out!
My boys love this Sausage Roll. We have it for breakfast, for snack, and for dinner. It’s that good and more importantly for me, it’s easy.
I don’t know whether you’re familiar with Boy Scouts are not, but the scouts work on different skill sets to get badges and ultimately move up in rank. Lincoln has been a Boy Scout almost three years and he just earned his Cooking Merit Badge. I think they have to cook at campouts 7 or 9 times. It’s a heck of a lot of times, whatever it is.
So, finally, Lincoln received his Cooking Badge… and, guess what? Ryder started Boy Scouts in February and now he’s working on his Cooking Badge!!!
For his first breakfast, he really wanted to impress and thought this Dutch Oven Sausage Breakfast Pinwheels. I modified our favorite Sausage Roll to make it work for the Dutch Oven.
Dutch Oven Sausage Breakfast Pinwheels
- Light the coals so that they will be hot and ready when you get the sausage roll ready.
- Spray the inside of a large Dutch oven with non-stick spray.
- Prepare the roll as directed below.
- Evenly distribute the charcoal briquettes on top and bottom of the Dutch oven.
- Open the lid as few of times as possible to hold the heat in.
- 2 cans pizza crust
- 1 pound sausage
- 1 pound shredded cheddar cheese
- Line the inside of the Dutch oven with heavy duty foil.
- You'll need 26 charcoal bricks for this. 10 for the bottom, 16 for the lid.
- This will get the temperature to approximately 350 degrees.
- Roll out one pizza crust and cut twelve 3-inch rounds with a cookie cutter.
- Cook sausage in a large skillet until it's no longer pink. Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel.
- Roll another pizza crust out and layer with sausage and cheese.
- Roll up jelly roll style beginning with the long side.
- Pinch to close.
- Cut into 12 even slices.
- Place 3-inch dough on the bottom side of the pinwheel (so that the sausage and cheese don't fall out) and place on foil in Dutch oven. (see photo above)
- Continue with all the rolls.
- Place lid on Dutch oven and place oven on the fire.
- Cook at 350 (10 coals on bottom and 16 coals on top. We added extra because it was 30 degrees outside on the day we try this recipe) for about 30 minutes.
- Check often the last 5 minutes so as to not over cook.
- Serve immediately.
- Optional - serve with maple syrup.
