Get your coals ready for cooking.

Whether you are using campfire coals or charcoal briquettes, you’ll be baking this savory Dutch baby Dutch oven camping recipe at 425 degrees in a 12-inch camp Dutch oven which will require 31 coals total = 21 top/10 bottom.

When I am using briquettes, I find it easiest to get them ready with my Rapid Fire Chimney Starter because it is fast, efficient and does not require any lighter fluid.

Pre-heat your 12-inch camp Dutch oven for cooking.

Step 2. Combine egg mixture.

In a bowl, combine eggs, milk, flour, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, set aside.

Camp Cooking Tip: A traditional Dutch baby batter is mixed with a blender which removes all of the flour lumps but at the campsite, you can do it manually by using a fork to mash the flour lumps.

Step 3. Fry the bacon.

Now, you are going to fry the bacon in your Cast Iron 12-Inch Camp Dutch Oven (6 Quart) until it is crisp.

Then you will remove the bacon to a paper towel to let it drain. Let bacon cool slightly then crumble and set aside

DO leave the bacon grease in the Dutch oven.

This is the fat that will make your Savory Dutch Baby nice and crispy at the bottom and the bacon fat provides a ton of flavor.

Step 4. Add egg mixture.

Now you are going to pour the egg mixture evenly over the top of the bacon grease in the pre-heated camp Dutch oven.

You don’t need to stir it because it will settle in the bottom of the Dutch oven naturally.

Camp Cooking Tip: When you are preparing dutch oven recipes for camping, make sure you are cooking on a level surface so when you pour the batter into the oven, it will spread evenly and not puddle on one side of the oven.


Step 5. Cover and bake.

Camp Cooking Tip: Rotate the oven and lid in opposite directions throughout the cooking process. Check our Dutch Oven Camp Cooking Tips post for more information.

Step 6. Add toppings.

Remove cover and top with crumbled bacon, cheese, green onion and rosemary. Replace cover and continue cooking until cheese melts, about 3 minutes.

When I am cooking with my Dutch oven, I use a Camp Dutch Oven Lid Lifter to remove the lid during cooking as well as rotating the lid and over for even baking.

It is so much easier to handle the hot cookware with a lid lifter.
