Alton Brown just did an epsiode not too long ago about dutch oven cooking you should go to and use a few of those recipes.

This is great fun for kids:

Cut the top third off of an unpeeled orange and hollow out the peel.
Stuff a canned cinnamon roll into the larger part of the orange peel.
Top with remainder of the peeling and wrap in foil and bake over coals 'til done. You will need to check due to temp and thickness of the peel but the top of the orange will rise a bit when they are done. Then frost with the icing from the bottom of the can. - I mean the Pilsbury type that you get in the refer section where you peel the can and then whack it on the counter to open. These are so good and orangy too.

Oh, These are good too:

Cut a donut like you would a bagel and put a slice of pineapple and a bit of brown sugar in the middle. Wrap and heat in the coals 'til the pineapple is mushy. Tastes just like pineapple upside down cake!

This requires some care
1. Bring about 1" of cooking oil to frying temp in your dutch oven
2. Put a hole through a canned biscuit and drop it in the oil and cook each side (about 4 minutes each side).
3. remove the doughnut and place on paper towels to remove excesss oil
4. While it's still hot, dunk it in a glaze made of mixed powdered sugar and milk and then roll it in brown sugar.

Butter the outside of two pieces of cinnamon-raisin bread and put them buttered side toward the pan in your pie-iron. Add several tablespoons of apple pie filling (peach works well too), close and cook on the campfire until the raisin bread gets crusty. The pie filling is HOT so be careful.

In a dutch oven - line it with aluminum foil for easier clean-up.
In the bottom, put two cans of cherry pie fillng and one drained can of crushed pineapple mixed together. Then take a yellow cake mix and in a separate bowl mix it with 12 to 16 ounces of lemon-lime soda - nothing else. Pour the mix on top of the pie filling/pineapple in the dutch oven. Close the lid and place on a bed of coals with coals on the lid as well. Check occasionally - it's done when the cake rises and turns a nice golden brown on top. You can sprinkle the top with powdered sugar before serving if there isn't enough sugar in there already for you! My Scouts LOVE this one and I'm betting you'll have visitors to your campsite with spoons in hand!

two recipes

I like dutch ovens, but I also like campfire cooking that doesn't involve much cleanup. Here are a few I know about.

Baked Apples Core an apple and place it on a sheet of foil. Fill with a Tbsp. of butter, and your choice of sugar (brown or white), cinnamon, and nuts (I like walnuts). Wrap the foil around the apple and put it in the campfire for approx. 10 minutes, turning it with tongs to heat evenly and being careful not to poke holes in the foil. Remove and let cool for a few minutes before eating.

Here's one I haven't tried yet, but I think it sounds like a good one for kids of any size..

Doughboy on a Stick. Using the biscuit dough that comes in a pop-open container, wrap a piece around the end of a campfire stick. When it's browned, roll it in a little butter, sugar & cinnamon. Eat it right off the stick.

This is always welcome when we camp. I think they are called Banana Boats. You take a banana with the peel on. Take a sharp knife and holding the banana so it looks like a smile, cut into the top layer of peel, and through the banana, but do not cut through the bottom layer of peel. Smush (technical term here) open the banana as you might a baked potato. Insert mini marshmallows and pieces of Hershey bar, or chocolate of your choice. Really pack it full. Wrap in heavy duty tin foil and place around the campfire, or even on the embers if the fire is well spent. Allow to heat until the marshmallow and chocolate melt. The skin keeps the banana from burning. When warm enough, take off the fire and open the foil. You eat it right out of the skin with a spoon and it tastes remarkably like a banana split without the ice cream. Yum!

Thanks for the info. Amazon sells Rome products and I ordered a few today.

Pretty happy to buy a new well-made cast iron press; the ones I see on ebay are bidding high -- saw one go for $78 yesterday. I got the same functionality for 20 bucks on amazon.

Love this forum. Writing down all the great recipes too.
