Top 10 Dutch Oven Recipes
Dutch Oven Cooking Six years ago, the troop had a single dutch oven that was rarely used. Last month, we had five patrols making dutch oven meals in a snow storm. :-)

This troop distributes gear to each patrol to manage by themselves. Each patrol that wants one has been issued a dutch oven from the quartermaster. With a little training on clean-up and storage, the D.O.s make a huge impact on the cooking creativity of the scouts. They get more practice building fires, which also means gathering enough good wood and starting it early enough for the meal. They use more fresh ingredients and do 'real cooking' rather than 'warming'.

Here are ten of the favorite recipes from the past year for you to try:
  1. PECS - filling breakfast meal
  2. doughnuts - fun and tasty
  3. monkey bread - this gets made by at least one patrol on every campout
  4. apple fluff - another sweet breakfast
  5. pizza - easy to make, but requires a couple dutch ovens for a patrol or a lot of patience
  6. cowboy stew - make sure you've got a good can opener and some hungry folks
  7. burger beans and biscuits - great cold-weather dinner
  8. black forest cobbler - easiest dessert to make ever. Supply different cake mixes, sodas, and fillings and see which taste the best.
  9. burritos - much better than fast food burritos
  10. enchiladas - currently my personal favorite
