Cooking Ham In A Dutch Oven
How to cook a frozen ham while camping:
- You start with a precooked ham, which is most likely frozen.
- Do not worry about thawing completely.
- Line your Dutch oven with foil, place the ham inside, and cook over hot coals.
Most precooked hams come pre sliced which means even LESS work for you. They may even come with a glaze which you could easily brush on if desired.
What are good side dishes to serve while camping?
THIS question is probably the most important. The ham is super simple to put together which means more of your time will likely be spent on side dish prep.
If you plan it out, most of these can be prepared before you leave the house keeping the entire meal super simple.
Here are a few of our favorite camping side dish ideas:
- Grilled vegetables
- Dutch oven cheesy potatoes
- Dutch oven french fries
- Foil pack steamed veggies
