In our opinion, one of the best parts of camping is creating delicious fireside dishes. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a full-time RVer, it’s crucial to have a few reliable Dutch oven recipes up your sleeve.
We know the Dutch oven is heavy, but it’s such a key component in camping because it keeps your food hot and they’re easy to clean. All it takes is just a bit of care, and your Dutch oven will treat you well for years to come.
With that being said, here are a few of our favorite Dutch oven recipes that we can’t live without!
From the Dutch oven and cast iron experts themselves, this Mountain Man Breakfast from Lodge Cast Iron will feed a crowd and keep you fueled and energized until lunch.
For something a little different, bring bar food to the mix and make nachos! It’s nearly impossible to mess them up and you can have lots of fun with them. If you’re serving a crowd, lay everything out and DIY it with a “make your own nachos” setup. Here’s a recipe for inspiration.
For a heartier option, BBQ Dutch Oven Chicken and Potatoes will fill and warm you up. If you aren’t planning a camping trip soon but still want to try this, you can make it in a slow cooker or even on a stove.
We don’t know about you, but we’ll eat pasta anytime, anywhere. And when we came across this recipe for Baked Ziti, we had to tell you! It takes no time to pull together and you can toss in anything you like in your pasta.
Chili is great. But chili with cornbread on top? To die for. Camp Chili and Cornbread will have you going back for seconds. This recipe makes quite a bit, so you can cut it in half, or make it all and fry a few eggs to put on top for breakfast the next morning.
For us, fall is one of the best times for camping. It’s not scorching outside, and the fall foliage is breathtaking. But, it can get chilly at night! This Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup is the solution to those colder nights.
Making soup by while camping is almost a given, but it’s time to get creative. You can even make these Dutch Oven Cheesy Garlic Bites dunk in your soup. It’s only five ingredients, two of which are seasoning. (Hopefully, you already have those in your RV pantry.) It also uses the frozen dough to have them ready in under an hour.
Who says you have to forego dessert when you camp? Not us. Try these Gooey Caramel Cinnamon Rolls when the sweet tooth is calling your name.
