This camp spinach rice casserole can serve as a vegetarian main dish or a side dish. It is cooked in a Dutch oven.
This cobbler recipe is lighter than some of the other ones I make which have a lot of butter. In fact, I had diet 7Up on hand instead of regular, so I used that, making this a fairly low calorie dessert.
Here is an easy camp breakfast recipe for those who enjoy some eggs in the morning. I really enjoy Dutch oven recipes at camp because you can put all of your ingredients in and relax while it cooks. And relaxing and enjoying the moment is part of what really makes camping great.
This recipe is a twist on the Dutch oven cobbler. My sons like making this just because of the novelty of the ding dongs in the cobbler. It is pretty easy to make. Most patrols with at least one experienced camp cooks could do this without difficulty.
Hoppin’ John is traditionally served on New Year’s Day to bring luck through the year. You can have in anytime though. This recipe works at camp or you can cook it at home on your stove.
This is one of our favorite Dutch oven recipes. DS made this recently at a Troop meeting where the Scouts BSA showed off their cooking skills. This recipe also won first prize at a Camporee cooking contest, so I guess it is an “award winning” recipe.
LC earned his cooking merit badge at our second summer camp this past summer.

This variation of campfire potatoes is hearty enough to serve as a main dish.
There are lots of different dump cake combinations out there. Chocolate and cherries is one of my favorites.
This recipe is a good recipe for when you have time to let a stew simmer. Serve some fruit on the side and maybe some bread and you have a full meal.
A hearty breakfast recipe with meat, eggs, and hashbrowns. This recipe includes instructions for cooking outdoors with charcoal and indoors in an oven.
