Dutch Oven Main Dish Ideas

Dutch ovens are great for hearty main dishes including roasts, bakes, and casseroles, from simple meats to vegetables and sauces included.

Soups and stews also make hearty meals and are easily cooked over a campfire or gas stove. This is just the tip of the iceberg for one-pot-meal ideas.

If you are already using a baking dish or casserole dish in the oven at home, it is only a small transition to a Dutch oven in a campsite.
