Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Apple Crescent Roll Dumpling (with pics)

I'm open to a suggestion for a better name - and if we have just reinvented the wheel let me know. 

My son and I got the idea in Salado where someone was cooking slices of Granny Smith apples wrapped in pre-made dough and baking it on the egg.  We didn't have an egg at our rented cabin but this could be done more easily on an egg than on our portable vertical smoker where we cooked them "raised direct".

We used butter flavored crescent rolls, laid them out into their triangular shape and added brown sugar.  Then we put a few thin slices of apple (4-5 seems to work best) and sprinkled some cinnamon on top.  We rolled them up as demonstrated in the pics.  Cooked them until the dough was done.  We had to flip them due to our set-up as the bottoms cooked much faster than the tops.  I suspect that cooked indirect on the egg this would not be necessary.

Like I said earlier, this was just something we made up this weekend while sitting around a campfire so if it has been done before or there is a better way to do it, please enlighten me. This will definitely be something we do again.
