Cornbread tends to be a Dutch oven staple. It's something that people love to bake in a Dutch oven, which stands to reason since stews and chilli are also very popular Dutch oven recipes and cornbread goes so well with those dishes.
Well we have a super yummy Dutch oven loaded cornbread recipe for you today! It has lots of good stuff, corn, tomatoes, chilies, cheese and even bacon, yep that's right yummy, crispy, bacon!
This is a pretty simple recipe and it turns out tasty too! I decided to go with this recipe because we had a bag of orzo in our pantry that I had absolutely no idea what to do with. We were headed to the family ranch for Easter and we decided it would be fun to bring the Dutch Oven and make something in it to share for Easter dinner. So I looked up a few orzo recipes and found some with shrimp that sounded pretty good. The inspiration for this recipe comes from: http://damndelicious.net/2014/08/15/one-pot-lemon-orzo-shrimp/ I made a few changes, mostly not adding the peas, it called for frozen peas, no thanks, but add them if you like them.
And I forgot to take a picture of the final product again, so the old Dutch oven and coal photo will have to do.
This delicious recipe is one of my go to dutch oven or even regular oven meals. I make it ALL OF THE TIME--such an easy favorite. I made it at a group camp-out that hosted a Dutch Oven Cook-off and got third place with it! I was surprised since, it's such a straight forward, simple recipe.
And that's it--for my award winning recipe I only used the above ingredients.
All though, I like to mix it up once in awhile and add a variety of veggies depending upon my mood, below are a few examples
Last weekend we went camping with some friends at the base of the Granite Range near Gerlach, NV. We wanted to hike up Granite Peak, but we got a late start and it was super steep so we ended up hiking about two-thirds of the way up. And, although the morning was fairly chilly at 15° F, it was a fun, beautiful and way too warm of a weekend.
Since we were camping, I decided it was a good weekend to breakout the dutch oven, I haven't used it in a while and I love cooking in it. I decided to make a sausage and shrimp jambalaya. It was delicious on a chilly night and I made enough that we heated some up in the morning, threw it in a thermos and enjoyed it for lunch on our hike. I forgot to take pictures of the food, I'll try to remember to do that in the future.
