Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler and a Giveaway

by heather

Right now we are planning a extended family camping trip. Camping means cooking in a Dutch oven. :) And I thought I would share my favorite super easy dutch oven dessert recipe. I believed I learned this back at girl’s camp…awhile ago.

Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler
1 large (20 oz) can of peaches (don’t drain)
1  (12 oz) can of Sprite/ 7-Up/ Sierra Mist (just make sure it isn’t diet.)
1 box yellow cake mix
1/4 lb butter (1 stick)
1/2 tsp cinnamon

1. Prepare charcoals (10 for the bottom and 14 for the top). 2. Spray inside of dutch oven with non-stick cooking spray. 3. Dump peaches with juice into dutch oven. 4. Sprinkle cake mix over peaches. 5. Cut butter into small chunks and distribute over cake mix. 6. Pour lemon-lime carbonated beverage of choice over cake mix. Don’t stir! 7. Sprinkle with cinnamon. 8. Place lid over cake, cover with coals and allow to cook until cake is lightly browned on top and the sides pull away from oven (About 30-35 minutes) Test center with a toothpick. Cold leftovers make a great breakfast, if there are any.

    My favorite dutch oven use: pork chops with onions and apples on top, slow roasted over low heat for several hours. Yum! (Sorry, I don't use recipes — just make it up as I go along).

    Dutch Oven Potatoes
    1 lb bacon
    2 lbs onions
    5 lbs potatoes
    Salt & pepper

    Slice bacon into one inch squares and cook in hot oven. Add sliced onions to bacon. When onions are slightly soft, add sliced potatoes, peeled or not. Bake for about 30-40 minutes, stirring once (stirring too often will make potatoes mushy). Salt and pepper to taste and garnish with shredded cheddar cheese.

    favorite dutch oven recipe is cowboy chili with dumplings. I use chuck steak, cubed and ground beef, black beans, pink beans and chili seasoning. diced tomatoes, tomato paste and onions and garlic. I let it simmer for a couple hours then I use bisquick to make the dumplings, spooning them on top of the chili, cover and wait a few minutes and it is done.

  31. ape2016 says:

    camping tip- pack everything in individual bags or lidded containers and then pack those in a large lidded bin. No more rummaging, everything stays clean and dry.

    Here is my favorite recipe~

    Breakfast Casserole

    1/4 cube butter
    8 slices of bread
    2 lb pre-cooked pork sausage
    1 lb cheddar cheese
    12 eggs
    1 qt milk
    1-1/2 tsp dry mustard
    1 tsp salt
    Line a 12" dutch oven with heavy duty aluminum foil. (optional)
    Spread butter all over the foil.
    Tear bread into pieces.
    Break sausage into pieces.
    Grate cheese.
    In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, dry mustard, and salt.
    Layer the bread, sausage, cheese, eggs into the D.O.
    Cover and cook at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

    Check and cook another 10-15 minutes until cheese forms a light-brown crust on top of cooked eggs.

  53. Deb K says:

    My camping tip~Take along some dryer lint.

    Every good camper has some. Every good campfire needs some.

    Nothing works better at starting a campfire from scratch than some good old fashioned clothes dryer lint! It's better than twigs. Better than wood chips. Better than shreds of paper. It's the cheapest, quickest way to start a fire!

    Crusty Peach Cobbler

    8 c Fresh peaches; sliced
    2 c Sugar
    2 To 4 tb all-purpose flour
    1/2 ts Ground nutmeg
    1 ts Vanilla extract
    1/3 c Butter or margarine
    Pastry for double-crust pie
    Vanilla ice cream
    Combine peaches, sugar, flour, and nutmeg in a Dutch oven; set aside until syrup forms. Bring peach mixture to a boil; reduce heat to low, and cook 10 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat; add vanilla and butter, stirring until butter melts. Roll half of pastry to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; cut into an 8-inch square. Spoon half of peaches into a lightly buttered 8-inch square pan; top with pastry square. Bake at 475 degrees for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Spoon remaining peaches over baked pastry square. Roll remaining pastry to 1/8-inch thickness, and cut into 1-inch strips; arrange in lattice design over peaches. Bake an additional 15 to 18 minutes or until browned. Spoon into serving bowls, and top each with a scoop of ice cream. Yield: 8 servings.

    The next time you go camping bring extra trashbags with you that you can carry when you go hiking or to the lake. Might end up saving an animal or to by removing trash.

    Last year we did rolls in the dutch oven and they turned out so great! You just take Rhodes rolls and let them thaw. Before they raise roll them out in a snake and dip them in butter and parmesan cheese. Then you wind them around end to end in the bottom of the dutch oven and let them raise. Then you cook them. They are so yummy and easy to make!

    Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Total Time: 1 hour, 45 minutes
    Servings: 4-6

    1 whole chicken, cut up
    1 cup flour
    salt and pepper, to taste
    1 teaspoon rosemary
    1 teaspoon thyme
    1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
    1/4 cup oil
    1 can condensed soup, celery or mushroom

    Cut up chicken into breasts, legs, thighs, wings and the back. Use the gizzards also. Mix flour with the spices, salt and pepper. Heat oil in Dutch oven. Coat chicken with flour mixture and fry in oil until slightly browned. Drain the leftover oil from the Dutch oven. Arrange all the chicken in the Dutch oven with largest pieces near the bottom and side. Cover with the can of condensed soup of your choice. Cover with lid and simmer over low heat for about one hour. If using hot coals, ensure that there are enough to keep the Dutch oven hot. When done remove chicken from the Dutch oven and use some of the leftover juices for a gravy.

    3 Minute Pizza Recipe
    1 pkg. pita bread
    1 can spaghetti sauce
    1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
    1 pkg. sliced pepperoni
    Any other toppings as desired
    Cut pita in half and spoon spaghetti sauce into pocket spreading evenly. Add mozzarella and pepperoni and any other "toppings" you wish.
    Wrap in heavy duty foil and place in coals. Cook for 1 1/2 minutes on each side. (You just want it to get warm and to melt the cheese. For really hot coals this is plenty of time.)
