Tips and Tricks For Easy Dutch Oven Potatoes?

  • What kind of onion goes good with potatoes? I like to use a purple sweet one, but any are fantastic.
  • People love to add bacon, but it is best to cook the bacon a little before you start your potatoes. Brown the bacon for a few minutes before adding the potatoes.
  • What kind of cheese is good to add? I use whatever I have on hand, or you can use sharp.

 

If I Use Briquettes to Cook with my Dutch Oven, How Many Do I Use?

  • As a general rule for using briquettes with dutch ovens: take the size of the dutch oven and times it by two.
  • Then take 2/3 of the briquettes and place them on top of the lid and place the rest underneath your dutch oven.
  • For example, when using a 10″ dutch oven; you would need 20 briquettes; 12 on top of the lid and 8 underneath your dutch oven.

Easy Dutch Oven Potatoes

Easy Dutch Oven Potatoes

Easy dutch oven potatoes are one of our favorite recipes. They come together so easy, layers of potatoes and onions topped with melted cheese.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 large potato per person
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • salt
  • pepper
  • seasoning salt
  • 1/2 cup butter (sliced) *can use bacon grease in place of the butter
  • 1/4 cup apple juice, water, or Sprite
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups grated cheese

Instructions

  1. Scrub and peel the potatoes. 13 lbs will serve about 25 people
  2. Slice the potatoes in even slices. You can use a food processor or a hand slicer, or I have even used a knife when camping.
  3. Place a few slices of butter in the bottom of the dutch oven, or 1/4 cup bacon grease if desired
  4. (makes for a great flavor if you like bacon).
  5. Start layering the potatoes. I used a 10" dutch oven and I used about 15-20 potatoes because they weren't very big.
  6. Layer about 1/4 of the dutch oven with potatoes and 1/4 of the onion.
  7. Sprinkle the potatoes with salt and pepper and just about 1/8 teaspoon of seasoning salt.
  8. Repeat the layers 2-3 more times. I add some of the butter in between the layers. Just a nice thin sliver of butter works well. I use it just as it has come out of the refrigerator, that makes it easier to slice.
  9. I also like to add about 1/4 cup of liquid, like water, apple juice or Sprite.
  10. Place in an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees. We cooked ours on the Trager for 55 minutes.
  11. Make sure that your dutch oven is full because it will cook down about 1/3.
  12. About 5 minutes before the potatoes are done, add the cheese, give the potatoes about another 5 minutes.
  13. Do not stir or add any liquid, just enjoy.
