We wanted to try something different in the dutch oven the last time we went camping. That’s when I realized my moms 5 Decker dinner recipe would be perfect in a dutch oven since it’s all cooked in one pan together.
This idea turned out to be a great hit! And a perfect meal while camping (or at home) because it doesn’t need side dishes to go with it.
- 1 lb bacon
- 2 lb ground beef
- 6-8 potatoes- sliced
- 1 bag of broccoli
- 2 c. carrots
- 1 onion- sliced
- cheese (optional)
Layer all ingredients into the dutch oven: bacon, ground beef, veggies. (don't add cheese yet)
Put the lid on the dutch oven and place 6-8 coals on top and 6-8 on bottom. You want to cook this low and slow so you don't burn your bacon.
It will take about a hour to cook. Once the ground beef and bacon are cooked add the cheese and serve.
