Use a Dutch Oven for the Perfect Fall Camping Food

Use a Dutch Oven

Cooking In A Dutch Oven

Autumn is perhaps the best season for camping. It’s not too hot and not too cold; it gets dark a little earlier so you can cozy up to the bonfire. The leaves change to beautiful colors. It’s also the perfect time to try out new fall recipes — no grill necessary. Instead, invest in a Dutch oven to cook some scrumptious food over the campfire.

How To Use A Dutch Oven

Dutch ovens date back to the early 1700s in Holland. For camping, use a Dutch oven that is an outdoor-safe cast iron Dutch oven with a flat bottom and ideally three short legs. It also needs a strong wire handle for hanging above the fire.

Jayco® offers up three delicious fall-time recipes you can make in a Dutch oven.


The RV brand recommends trying a Dutch Oven Breakfast Scramble, which mixes your favorite breakfast meat with eggs, veggies, and cheese. You cook it all together and serve it with toast and potatoes.


Jayco suggests Dutch Oven Pizza with any combination of your favorite toppings.


Jayco recommends baking Dutch Oven Monkey Bread instead of the same old s’mores you have been eating every night.

You can find all three recipes here. We at RVs of West Texas near Abilene, TX love sharing our favorite camping recipes, and can teach you more on how to use a Dutch Oven.
