Easy Dutch Oven Potatoes
These potatoes are unbelievably delicious for how easy they are to make. After all, when the main ingredients are butter, cheese, bacon and potatoes, it’s pretty impossible to not make something incredible.
- Butter (optional) - 3 tbs.
- Medium potatoes, sliced thin (with or without skins) - 15
- Bacon - 1 lb.
- Medium onions, sliced - 2
- Grated cheese - 4 cups
- Any kind of liquid (ex: can of beer, soda, or mushroom soup)
- Salt and pepper, or your favorite seasoning
Cut bacon into 1 inch pieces and fry in Dutch oven until crisp. Remove bacon but leave grease in Dutch oven. Layer potatoes, onions, cheese, bacon, and spices then dot with butter. Keep repeating layers until oven is full. Pour liquid over the top. Cover and cook on medium to low burner for 35 to 45 minutes. Check often you may need to add more moisture. When potatoes are done sprinkle with another layer of cheese, cover and let cheese melt then serve.
*Cooking Tip: For Dutch Oven temp. of 350°F, use 14 charcoal briquettes on top and 7 on bottom.
