Camping Food: Cheesy Dutch Oven Potatoes

April 4, 2013

Cheese, bacon, and potatoes.

Best combination ever, right?

So when we were camping last weekend and my in-laws said they were making cheesy dutch oven potatoes to go with our Sunday night dinner, I responded with a, “WHA?!?!?!”

I had to see how they put this together !

Here is what you will need:

Salt and pepper

(The amounts will vary depending on your dutch oven size)

Start by slicing your potatoes and onion. Chop up the bacon and add it to your warm dutch oven.

Spoon out the cooked bacon. Leave the grease in the bottom of the pan. Here is where you start to layer your ingredients…

Cheese and bacon. Repeat layers and cook for 45 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft.

The best part about this recipe is that it is easy to change.

Don’t like onions? No problem! Just leave them out.

Add different spices to give them a little kick.

Or just make them as my in-laws did and enjoy all of that cheesy bacon goodness!
