Fooled You Rolls


Fool your friends with these BBQ pork rolls disguised as cinnamon rolls.

  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Microwave pork according to packaging instructions. Stir in barbecue sauce and let cool.
  3. In a small sauté pan, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté until caramelized, about 8 minutes.  
  4. In a large bowl, sift 1 cup flour, baking powder, salt and 1 teaspoon garlic powder. Cut in vegetable shortening, until small granules form. Stir in ½ cup milk, ½ cup cheese and onions, knead until soft dough forms.
  5. On a floured surface, turn out dough and roll out to a rectangle with a ½-inch thickness.
  6. Evenly distribute cooled pork onto dough. Starting at one end roll lengthwise to create a log shape.  
  7. Coat a 9-inch round baking pan with cooking spray. Cut 8 even slices from the log and place in pan.  
  8. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  9. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, over medium heat, melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter, stir in remaining 1 tablespoon flour and cook for 2 minutes. Slowly add cream and remaining ¼ cup milk, whisking constantly until smooth.
  10. Stir in remaining ½ cup cheese and 1 teaspoon garlic powder and whisk until melted.  Season to taste with salt.
  11. Drizzle cheese sauce over rolls and serve.
