I love to take “classic” recipes and add a odd little twist to it. Everyone who has a Dutch Oven has a Potato recipe that calls for bacon, potatoes, and cheese. So here goes my twist.
1/2 pound bacon (render this until crispy there is nothing worse than soggy bacon)
3 lbs potatoes cubed (or sliced diced julienned or whole whatever floats your boat)
1 large onion diced (same as above)
3 cloves of garlic minced
1/3 cup of Lighthouse Blue cheese dressing
#10 Dutch oven
Render (make crispy over medium-low heat) bacon, I had to do this on a Coleman stove as I never have lots of luck with coals for this. Keep as much of the rendered bacon fat as you think your heart will handle. Add onions, garlic and cook until soft then add potatoes, stir and put on lid. Place brickets on lid and under Dutch oven. A general rule of the number of coals to use is the # minus 2 on the bottom plus 2 on top so for a #10 (meaning 10 inch diameter) Dutch oven would have 12 brickets on the top and 8 on the bottom.
Cook until potatoes are soft and stir in dressing right before serving.
