Just curious do folks with DO(s) transport in their trailer (inside or outside compartment) or tow vehicle? I'm looking for ideas on organizing my WhiteHawk so I can use my DO more often.

It is a vegetable dish called "ratatouille"





The “Official” list of Ingredients

1 lb Onions, small dice
4 ea Bell Peppers, small dice
1 lb Zucchini, small dice
1 lb Eggplant, skin removed, small dice
4 cloves Garlic, minced
2 lbs Tomatoes, diced (canned ok)
8 oz Mushrooms, quartered
6 oz Olive Oil, for sautéing
1/2 cup Parsley, minced
1 Bay Leaf
1/4 tsp Thyme, dried
2 tsp Basil, dried
1/2 tsp Oregano, dried

The “Official” Procedure

Prepare the vegetables: Peel the eggplant and cut into small dice. Dice the onions ¼”. Remove the cores and sees of the peppers and cut into small dice. Mince the garlic. Cut the mushrooms into halves or quarters depending on size

Sauté onions and peppers in olive oil for 1 minute Add Zucchini and sauté for 1 minute. Add eggplant and mushrooms and saute. Add garlic and saute. Add tomatoes and seasonings.

Cover and cook in a Dutch Oven about 30 minutes at 350 F until vegetables are tender and flavors are well blended. If the vegetables are too juicy, cook uncovered for a few minutes to reduce.

Adjust seasonings as needed. Serve hot or cold
We have home grown tomatoes. Would we need to drain them first before adding or use the entire contents ?

I'm gonna start a big flame here amongst the dutch oven crowd. A cast iron DO properly seasoned gives great flavor to any food you cook in it. Aluminum has been alleged to cause many health problems. I stay away from it if at all possible. If you line your DO with foil you have defeated the use of the great cast iron. I would rather the iron leach out into my food which I know is healthy and avoid aluminum. Just sayin

Thanks. Been using that zone for chairs but there is plenty of room to include DO stuff.

A question...

Does anyone here use trivets under their dutch ovens?

I have found one that looks like it would be easy to fabricate.

Just find some horse shoes from your local Farmers Coop and stick weld them together.

I found this one on the internet.

Although I don't yet have the RV, I do have a dutch oven and I love it!

Here is my favourite lazy recipe: Lasagna

8 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
3 shallots, finely sliced
3 carrots, small cubes
1 lb. ground beef
a good sprinkling of salt and pepper
1 25 ounce jar Tomato sauce
½ cup dry red wine
4 ounces cream cheese
4 ounces instant lasagna sheets
6-8 ounces fresh mozzarella
fresh basil and Parmesan cheese for topping
INSTRUCTIONS
Brown the bacon until crispy, add the shallots and carrot; saute for 5 minutes or until soft and fragrant. Add the ground beef with salt and pepper and brown until no longer pink. Drain off all the excess grease.
Add the tomato sauce and wine to the meat in the skillet. Simmer for 10 minutes over medium low heat. Stir in the cream cheese until melted.
Break each of the lasagna sheet into 3 or 4 pieces. Stir them into the meat mixture so they are completely covered in sauce, and arrange them so that they are all laying flat in the pan.
Place a few slices of fresh mozzarella underneath and between the sheets, and place the remaining slices of fresh mozzarella on top. Bake for 25 minutes.
Let stand for 5-10 minutes and top with fresh basil and Parmesan cheese.

Line dutch oven with aluminum foil for easier cleanup
Grease pan/foil with oil or butter
Line pan with pineapple pieces, brown sugar, and juice.
Prepare and pour into pan the cake mix per manufacturers instructions.
Cover and place in heat.

Put 10-12 briquets on top and 8-10 briquets under dutch oven

45 minutes

When done turn the whole thing over on a pizza pan and remove the foil.

Just tried this and it was bliss! Thank you

Forgive me if this has already been posted. I didn’t read them all

Biscuits, we all love them!
Dutch oven variety are my absolute favorite. Most all of us have fallen victim to burnt bottoms in a DO. My 96 year old grandmother told me a simple stupid way to insure the bottoms never ever burn... rocks

Yup rocks. Pick up a hand full of rocks and toss them in the bottom. Put some foil on top of the rocks and put your biscuits in. Rest assured for 15 years now I have been using rocks and foil to add perfect biscuits to our breakfast and some suppers.
