“We want some Lunch!”

Be sure to check out my other posts:  Scout’s Guide to Beginning Dutch Oven Cooking,  Cleaning a Dutch Oven, and What’s for Breakfast

It has to be quick, and the patrol has to want to eat it.  The Dutch Oven is not an oft-used appliance for most Scouts’ lunch preparation, but here are some recipes for success.

Preheat the Dutch Oven with more coals on the lid than the number (i.e. >12 on a 12” Dutch Oven) and an equal number under the oven.

  • Cut English Muffins in half (Or use a whole Boboli bread)
  • Spread margarine on the crust side of the muffins
  • Spread tomato slice or pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce or tomato paste on the top side of the muffins
  • Add grated cheese (provolone or mozzarella preferred, others fine)
  • Add Sliced pepperoni and/or sausage and/or sliced olives and/or leftover cooked bacon
  • Bake until the cheese is melted

Follow Biscuit directions above.  Smoosh the biscuit mixture evenly around wieners, leaving the wieners’ ends uncovered.  Bake in a Dutch Oven until the biscuits are browned.  An alternative is to use pre-made (e.g. Pillsbury) crescent roll dough wrapped around the wieners.

Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwiches

Prepare the Dutch Oven lid as you did for pancakes above, to make a grill.

  • Spread butter or margarine on one side of each piece of bread.
  • Place Ham and Cheese slices on the non-buttered sides of two pieces of bread.
  • Lightly brown each side of the sandwich.
