The 5-Ingredient Dutch Oven Cookbook: One Pot, 101 Easy Recipes by Lisa GrantI’m a girl who appreciates the author starting out with Dutch Oven basics. How to buy one and then how to use one. And then when the author answers the question I was wondering, “Why they call this pot a Dutch Oven?” I knew this was the book for me. My husband does an amazing job of cooking regularly. I’m very grateful he a natural cook. But on the occasion, I have to step up to the plate I’m thankful for books like this that help me make great meals with only 5 easy to find ingredients. It’s a win, win!
The first chapter of recipes falls under the Breakfast & Brunch meals. I liked the Bacon & Cheddar Roasted Potatoes meal. In the section Snacks, Apps & Sides, I enjoyed the Savory Zucchini-Parmesan Cakes, In the Chicken section we ate the Chicken Cutlets with Marsala Mushroom sauce.
I didn’t try anything from the Pork and Lamb main meals section, but I look forward to trying Sweet and Sticky pork chops, Garlic & Rosemary Roasted leg of Lamb, Shrimp Stir-Fry with Honey-Garlic Sauce they all sound good too. Finally, there is the dessert section. Things I’d like to make there is the No-Knead Bread, Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake, Dutch Apple Crisp and Brownie Chocolate Cake.
The authors cooking philosophy is, “always to use minimal ingredients to get maximum flavor. Every recipe in this book contains only five ingredients, not counting a few basic pantry items (and water). If you keep these five ingredients in your pantry or refrigerator at all times, it will be simple to throw everything else together when you’re deciding what recipes to make…” The basic ingredients are black pepper, broth, extra-virgin olive oil, flour, and salt.
I like how the book is laid out visually. On top of each recipe there is important information that tells you things like this meal is a quick-prep, 45 minutes, gluten free, nut-free and it’s vegetarian.
Under the title of each recipe there is information to gain at a quick glance like the serving size, prep time, cook time. The ingredients are on the left-hand side and are bolded in black to make it separate from the instructions. The steps are clearly numbered. Highlighted at the bottom are ingredient tips and/or variations you can make to the recipe. The only thing missing in this book are lots of pictures. The only yummy looking pictures are the ones that start off each chapter of the book.
If you are looking for meals that are easy to make with 5 ingredients (some a little more) this is the book for you.

Hungry Man Breakfast
Recipe by: Mrs. This eggy Easter treat boasts bacon, cheese, hash browns, and veggies. This is my own recipe, and of course, I think it's fabulous! I did not use a dutch oven to make this, I used a cast iron skillet in my oven. I just sauteed the sausage in the skillet with a little butter, then added the onion, garlic I did add more garli I've used this recipe twice while camping. The first attempt was done as suggested and seemed a bit dry, so the second attempt I mixed the cheese in with the eggs then folded it into the potato

Mountain Man Breakfast Scaled Back for Two Dutch Oven Cooking
Prep Time: 20 minutes. Cook Time: 1 hour. Grits and granola will do the trick for a day or two, but after just a few mornings in the woods I'm ready for a breakfast hearty enough to get me over the mountain or around the next river bend. The venerable Mountain Man is a staple, and it is infinitely customizable to suit any family's taste and quirks. The foundation of eggs, cheese, hash browns, and breakfast meat bacon, ham, or sausage can be the final product or just a starting point.
