Scalloped Potatoes and Ham

      I found this recipe on the back of a package of Simply Potatoes in the grocery store today.  You can find them in the refrigerated foods section, not frozen, they are conveniently packaged, prepared and dutch oven ready.  Ideal for outdoor cooking, store them in your cooler until you're ready to use.  The potatoes baked in my 10 inch dutch oven for a total of 40 minutes with 10 coals in a ring around the base of the oven and 20-22 on the lid.  After 30 minutes, sprinkle with cheese and let them cook for another 10 minutes.  A perfect brunch dish and an easy way to use up your leftover Easter ham, add sliced Kielbasa if you want to make it more of a filling one-pot dinner.

  1. I love Simply Potatoes and have tried several of their recipes which have all been great. This one looks like no exception. Check out their web site sometime. :)

    1. Thanks Becky, looks like there are a few dutch oven and camp cooking type recipes on their site, think I'll give them a try. Liddy

  2. One of my favorites is the chicken salsa verde casserole. It's great for the Dutch oven.
