Have you ever had Smashed Blackstone Cinnamon Rolls? Here is a way to make cinnamon rolls on a Blackstone flat top grill. When you make then once you’ll be doing it again and again.
I have spent hours making scratch cinnamon rolls, rolling them out, and then watch the rolls rise and bake. But that takes several hours of my time and a lot of planning.
My husband makes the canned cinnamon rolls in the oven for a hot tasty breakfast treat. Both are great, but my favorite cinnamon roll is smashed cinnamon rolls on griddle.
This can easily happen when we have a Blackstone Griddle. The Pillsbury cinnamon rolls are great tasting and something you can buy and store in the fridge until you want to make it.
Griddle cinnamon rolls take less than 15 minutes and require no prep work besides preheating the flat top griddle. It’s my preference for baking on the Blackstone Griddle especially when you are out camping and don’t have an oven to cook in.

How to Make Cinnamon Rolls on Blackstone
While you are at the grocery store, purchase a canned cinnamon roll tube. Any brand will do. When you are ready to make your smashed cinnamon rolls, preheat the griddle of your choice.
A Blackstone flat top gas griddle should be set on low heat. If using the Blackstone e-series griddle, then set the dial to 350°F.
Once the flat top griddle is hot, open the cinnamon roll tube. Lightly grease the griddle with your choice of oil. You can use butter, olive oil, or etc.
Separate the cinnamon roll layers and lay each round piece flat on the preheated griddle making sure to leave plenty of space between each. Take a piece of the parchment paper and lightly grease one side of it.
Place the parchment paper on top of the cinnamon roll. With your griddle spatula on top of the parchment paper, press down to flatten the cinnamon roll round.
Gently peel the parchment paper off the cinnamon roll and continue to the next piece until all of them are smashed. Cover with a dome lid.
Check the cinnamon rolls often so they do not burn on the bottom. Cooking times will vary. When the cinnamon rolls are golden brown on the bottom, flip them over.
If needed, cover and continue cooking until the griddle cinnamon rolls are done. Remove from the griddle and stack on a plate.
Warm up the icing that comes with the cinnamon roll tube. Spread or pour over top the smashed rolls and serve while they are hot.
