Chicken Cordon Blu
Submitted by Lori Sanders

6 large boneless chicken breasts, halved
6 slices boiled ham
6 slices Swiss cheese
1/2 teaspoon chopped chives
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 eggs with 2 tablespoons water
1 cup herb-flavored bread crumbs, finely ground.

Place each chicken breast between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Gently pound flat, using a rolling pin or mallet, until 1/4 inch thick. Work from center out. Remove wrap from one side. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Center 1/2 slice boiled ham, cut to fit, on each piece.

Sprinkle ham with 2 Tablespoons shredded Swiss cheese and diced chives Fold one end of chicken over ham and cheese. Fold in sides, then finish rolling up. Press ends to seal.

Combine flour, salt, and pepper in 1 small shallow pan. Whip eggs and water. Coat chicken with flour, next dip in egg, and roll in crumbs. Bake for 30 min. Turn as needed to prevent burning.

CAMP STEW
I made this at the Lanesboro Meet and no one complained.
Get yourself 2 nice marbled chuck steaks have your grill good and hot sear both sides of the steaks real good. I mean almost burn em. Put your Dutch oven on the fire, put some cooking oil in probably 1/8 cup ad about ¼ cup flour and brown this to a nice dark brown . Cut seared steak in strips about ½ inch wide and ad to the flour along with about 1 quart of water. Cover and simmer for 4 hours. You can do this on the fire or with charcoal under and on top of DO. Now ad about 1 cup celery you should have the cutting kind with lots of leaves or use celery seed, 2 cups carrots 2 cups spuds About 2 -1/4erd onions 1 cup rutabaga [ now these veggies should be cut quite large,] and 1 quart stewed tomatoes. Of coarse you can throw in whatever else is on hand. WHAT ABOUT SOME OF THAT OKRA I HEAR SO MUCH ABOUT? At this time add about a three fingered pinch of salt 2 fingered pinch pepper and 1 running over tablespoon honey Put her back on the fire and simmer for another hour. Now take a look at her get a good sample and check for salt etc. and thicken with water corn starch and paprika mixed together. Stew should have a nice thick gravy and the veggies should be quite large , otherwise you got soup.. Now those stewed maters I put in there are home canned and they probably got things that those store bought ones don’t so you might want to add a little thyme , garlic and basil. Now this like so many other things would have been better if you made it yesterday!

Dutch Oven Cornbread
This went well with Lyndon's stew

1 cup butter; melted
2 cups cornmeal
4 eggs; beaten
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups milk
4 tsp. baking powder
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. salt

In a large bowl mix together butter, eggs, and milk. In a separate bowl sift together sugar, cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients 1 cup at a time until well blended. Spoon cornbread mixture into a lightly greased 12" Dutch oven and spread evenly.

Cover Dutch oven and bake using 8-10 briquettes bottom and 14-16 briquettes top for 45 minutes or until cornbread turns golden brown.

NOTE: For even browning make sure to turn the oven and lid 1/4 turn in opposite directions every 10 minutes.

Serve warm with honey butter.

Serves: 10-12

Yummmm! Good to see a thread about this again!

Breakfast in the DO!

I like to brown 1.5 pounds of Italian Sausage, remove the excess grease.
Return the sausage to the bottom of the pan, add 4-5 medium sliced potates,
1 cup of celery, 1 medium chopped onion, dill, salt, pepper, sometimes broccoli or cauliflower, asparagus..whatever I have on hand.
Cover all this with 10 eggs.
Cook over 11 coals for 1 hour adding coals to the top of the eggs about 40 minutes into the hour. At this time, I add 2 cups of cheese, usually cheddar, sometimes, ricotta, whatever I have on hand.

It is delicious. Good luck and enjoy!

If I make cornbread at the same time, I will put the skillet or my other DO on top of the first one and will start all this about 20 minutes into the hour rather than 40 minutes.


Thanks for all this work, Nancy!!!

O.K. gang I've done gone and bought my first-ever DO, it's still in the box. A beautiful twelve inch LODGE with legs and a flanged lid. I have also built myself a tri-pod, in case one is needed.
I've read a great deal of recipes, but somehow I missed something. Do you cook bread in the oven itself, or do you put the bread in a bread-pan, and set that in the oven as you would in a regular oven?
I know this must sound stupid to you who have been at it a long time, but this is all new to me.
One time, before I die, I want to go off out in the woods and cook a complete meal.
I'm thinking cornbread and vege soup here.
Also; if you want a stew, do you just dump all your favorite ingredients into the naked pot, and cook???

Congratulations on your DO. Sounds like you got the just the right one.

We usually cook Bread directly in the Dutch Oven. In our case, we do Sour Dough Bread alot. We let the bread do the last rise in the DO before we put it on the coals.

The first thing you want to do is season your DO. Then in our experiance it is best to start off cooking things that will continue to season the iron. Dishes like “Tamale Pie” or “Sore Tummy Breakfast” works very well. The “Tamale Pie” would fill your “cornbread and vege soup” wish.

Are you coming to the Oregon Gathering? We will be teaching a Dutch Oven Workshop.

Thank you for the information.
I would dearly love to attend your gathering, but alas, health problems, fuel costs, etc prevents our traveling very far afield, except for a life-or-death situation.
I have been looking into the Sour Dough sites too, mostly out of curiosity, but also for the interesting reading.

Thank you again!

I seem to remember having a bad result cooking with tomatoes in a cast iron container. A sour iron-acid reaction. Anybody else?
