Best Dutch Oven Recipies

Hey! I just aquired a 5 qt. DO and want to start honing my skills before my next river trip. On the Grand last Dec. we had some great easy meals, and I want a few gems to keep in the cue, but need to start testing immediately. Please add your favorites, or direct me to threads that already have a list going.
Thanks!
Tim

Applesauce Pork Loin w/ Potatoes and Onions

This was one of the best meals I have had on the river, required two dutch ovens, can be pre-prepped, very little clean up, leaves plenty of room for personal touches, and plenty of time for the cooks to play Bocci!


DO #1

Pork Loin
AppleSauce

Dump it all in and cook until pork is done.

DO #2

Potatoes-Cubed, Sliced, Shreded, Your Preference.
Onions-Sliced, Diced, whatever
Butter
Salt n Peppah

Dump it all in and let cook. Stir every now and again untill pork is done.

Cherry Peach Cobbler

This is my favorite DO dessert:

2 large cans of cherry pie filling
2 large cans of sliced peaches
1 yellow cake mix
1 can whipped cream

Strain the peaches, and use the juice to moisten the cake mix (if you do this in the cans, there will be fewer dishes).
Dump the peaches and cherry pie filling in the oven, spread the cake mix over the top.

Cook 30-40minutes I think.
Enjoy with cream squirted all over.

This is going to be a long running thread I think (unless someone spoils the fun and says "use the search")
Here's my first one-

MOUNTAIN MAN BREAKFAST

Ingredients: (6 servings)
pound bacon (or pre-cooked sausage)
1- medium onion
1- 2-pound bag of hash brown potatoes
pound grated cheddar
1 dozen eggs
Procedure:
The following requires 6-9 bottom coals and 12-15 top coals: Pre-heat Dutch oven. Slice bacon and onion into small pieces and brown in the bottom of the Dutch oven until onions are clear.
Stir in the hash brown potatoes and cover; remove cover and stir occasionally to brown and heat potatoes (15-20 minutes).
Scramble the eggs in a separate container and pour the mixture over the hash browns.
Cover and cook until eggs start to set. (10-15 minutes).

[QUOTE=OldFatMan;287998]This is going to be a long running thread I think (unless someone spoils the fun and says "use the search")

I tried something new since the last thread so the search won't work. On day six of the San Juan this year I made personal pan pizzas for seven people. It was fun and not too difficult.

I bought 9 inch cake pans which fit inside my 10 inch and 12 inch DOs so I could have two going at once, and easily lift them out. After mixing dough, I prebaked the crust for a few minutes inside preheated ovens.

Many of the ingredients pack and transport well. Canned pizza sauce, shredded cheese, Betty Crocker pizza dough packets. One trick I learned practicing at home before the trip; serve with a salad. Too many ingredients on the pizza will add too much moisture (DOs don't vent steam like an oven) and the crust will not be crispy.

Each 9 inch pizza ended almost serving two, so 4 were enough but I made a fifth with the last ingredients and we ate it on the ramp the next day.

I followed the pizza with a Birthday pineapple upside-down cake and then cinnamon rolls the next morning.

Nobody complains when I bring the cast iron.

Enchilada Casserole

1.5 lbs ground beef
Diced onion
1 cans enchilada sauce
1 can2 cream of mushroom soup
1 cans chopped green chilies
1 cans black beans
1 lb. shredded cheddar cheese
Tortilla chips - crushed.
Brown ground beef & onion
Add enchilada sauce, soup, chillies, beans
Alternate layers of chips, meat, and cheese, ending with
cheese.
12 inch DO @ 350 degrees (whatever method you use to achieve that) for 30 - 45 min.
Serve with salsa & sour cream

I brown the ground beef and onion ahead of time at home and freeze it.

We do DO pizza, bread, cinnamon rolls, cakes, cookies, brownies, cobblers, mountain man eggs on most all trips. Good Eats for sure.

My kids still love this one:

chocolate cake mix
can of 7 up
cherry pie filling

Line DO with foil - dump everything in and cook. When your done throw the foil in the garbage and your done cleaning. They call it the cherry dump cake.
