1/1 Photo of The All Time Favorite Dutch Oven Potatoes
Utah is the KING of Dutch Oven Cooking! Allen was a friend of my fathers in Hurricane, so I borrowed his award winning recipe for Dutch Oven Potatoes. A Dutch Oven Dinner is NOT complete w/o having these potatoes served with along with what ever is being eaten! Figure out how big a dutch oven you need for the amount of people you are going to be serving. If you are new to this type of cooking, do some in your own back yard until you have the amount of coals right. Remember - more coals, the hotter it gets in there. I've had to endure many burnt potatoes before!! The onions will burn readily! : Allen Heaton (Hurricane Heritage Cookbook) If you would like a copy of this cookbook, contact the Hurricane Heritage Center in Hurricane, Ut. Maybe they can scare up a copy or two!

- 1Keep potatoes covered with salt water until ready to use or they turn dark and loose much of their appeal.
- 2Place bacon in the bottom of the dutch oven, enough to make 1/8 inch in oven. Brown bacon in preheated oven with or without the lid on; If it's windy, or many people moving around - it's safer with the lid on.
- 3Add onions, and cook until transparent.
- 4Place potatoes in oven a layer at a time, seasoning as you go - Go easy on the salt because of the bacon.
- 5When all potatoes are in stir thoroughly so seasoning and bacon and grease are well distributed throughout.
- 6Place lid on oven and cover with coals.
- 7Beginners be careful, and inspect often - Some cooks say stir at each inspection, thus insuring the bottom isn't burning - Personally, I think this results in broken and mushy potatoes. I, after the initial stirring, leave them alone - If I’m doubtful about the bottom, I take a spatula or spoon and slip under the potatoes and lift enough to.
- 8check the progress then slip spatula out, leaving potatoes disturbed as little as possible by sampling frequently you can announce when done. (usually around 20 minutes).
- 9*my advice - go easy with the coals when you are beginning. Keep them well dispensed on the bottom of the oven and the top. Use your "tool" to turn the dutch oven around on the coals often and move the top around a bit to keep the temperature inside even*.
