I’ve decided to declare it Camping Week. Why, you ask? Well, because I’ve just returned from a trip in the mountains and I really want to share some of these delicious recipes with you.
So, Dutch ovens. Handy little contraptions, aren’t they. Breakfast, dinner, dips and dessert, you can make practically anything in these cast iron vessels. On my trip, we worked our oven to the bone – sweet cobblers, hearty potatoes, and tender biscuits are just a few of our culinary creations.
But, I have to tell you about my favorite Dutch oven recipe – baked oatmeal.
I love oatmeal. I especially love oatmeal on a cool Colorado morning, with the Rockies in the background, and a steaming mug of Velvet Hammer with just a touch of cream.
Full of spicy cinnamon and delicious brown sugar, this baked oatmeal is like eating a warm, straight-from-the-oven oatmeal cookie. Honestly people, breakfast can’t get any better than this!
Hearty, and healthy oatmeal is blended with butter, milk, classic cinnamon and brown sugar then baked to perfection – Dutch oven style. Top it off with a splash of milk, some ripe blueberries or tart apples, and crunchy walnuts.
Got leftovers? Grab the ice cream! This heavenly recipe makes an outstanding dessert.
