While I unfortunately don't have any dutch oven recipes to share, what about Boy Scout recipes? My younger brother was in scouts for years. They each had their little mess kit to eat with and made their own version of dutch ovens and had all sorts of recipes to go with them. He always said they were great!

I am sure most Boy Scout recipes would also work in a dutch oven. My family does a lot of camping at the beach which allows us plenty of time to slow cook meals with our dutch oven. I Look forward to reading and trying some of your brothers Boy Scout recipes.

Mountain Man Breakfast
1/2 lb bacon (or pre-cooked sausage)
2 lb. bag of hash brown potatoes
1/2 pound of grated cheddar
1 doz eggs
Small jar of salsa (optional)
The following requires 6-9 bottom coals and 12 -15 top coals:
Pre-heat 12" Dutch Oven. Slice bacon and onion into small pieces and brown in the bottom of the DO until onions are clear. Stir in the hash brown potatoes and cover; remove cover and stir occasionally to brown and heat potatoes (15-20 minutes) Scramble the eggs in a separate container and pour the mixture over the hash browns. Cover and cook until eggs start to set.(10 - 15 minutes)
Sprinkle grated cheese over egg mixture, cover and continue heating until eggs are completely set and cheese is melted. Optional: cover cheese/egg mixture with a small jar (~ 1 cup) of SALSA. Cover and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes. Slice and server like quiche. (Real men don't eat quiche but I sure get lots of requests to cook up the Mountain Man.) Cooking times will vary with the weather and your state of awake but its almost impossible to screw up. Serves 6
