We use our 10" oven more than the other ovens cause its just the 2 of us most of the time.
I am tring to perfect a fryed potato reciepe. Not there yet but here goes.
Take 1 med potato for every person you are serving, than add 1 extra potato for every 2 people. example, if there are 6 people, thats 6 taters, plus 3 more, 9 total.
Slice them about 1/4 inch. Finely dice one large onion. and crisp 1/2b bacon.
Fry the bacon in the dutch oven to crisp. When it cools break it up in small pieces. Add the onion to the hot bacon grease and cook till translucent and remove. Put enough oil in the oven to cover the bottom. add a layer of taters, then half the onions and bacon,ADD SALT AND PEPPER LIBERALLY, then layer the rest of the taters, onion, bacon and plenty of salt and pepper. Cover the pot and dont look inside for 20 minuets. Double the number of coals from the diameter of the pot. If you have a 10" pot fire 20 coals. one third on bottom and 2 thirds on top. STir and recover, look in again in 15 minuets and stir. Rotate pot on the coals every 10 minuets during the cooking process. They are done when there is no more oil in the bottom, and there should be some of those wonderful crispy ones on the bottom. If they look greasy or oily KEEP Cooking em. Keep the lid on, but stir every 15 mins.
After you take them from the oven put the oven back on the coals, and fill half full with water and cover. Now go eat and enjoy you taters. When you are done eating open the pot and all the baked on yuck will be loose, brush and swirl the water and its clean. My wife likes to add some cheese and sour cream to hers.
