A common question I get at all my classes is; "What size Dutch oven should I get?"
That is a good question...since "size does matter".
Dutch ovens come in sizes of 10", 12", 14" 16", these are the most common...yes there are smaller and bigger one but let's not worry about those just yet.
What size you get really depends on how many are you feeding and what are you cooking.
This cake is probably the most cooked recipe in the Dutch oven. To make clean-up easy...I do line my Dutch oven with foil. Now I know, alot of Dutch oven purest will say "the old timers never used foil"... My feeling is, if it was available, they would.
Pineapple Upside Down Cake
4 Tbs. butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 yellow cake mix
1 cup pineapple juice
8 pineapple rings
Besides tasting great, easy to prepare, what else makes this dish so good is that it's a one pot meal.
2 Pounds Breakfast Sausage (Jimmy Dean)
4 Medium Sized Potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 cubes
8 Eggs, beaten with 1/4 cup milk
1 Cup grated cheese
4 Drops, Hot Sauce to taste (optional)
I have more than 50 pieces of campfire cookware...some skillets, chicken fryers, Dutch ovens and bean pots...
The question I get mostly is what's the diff' between a Dutch oven and a bean pot? A lot of people will tell me that that have a cast iron Dutch oven, without the little "feet" on it. Well, that's the differance between the two.
