Default Re: Treat your Dutch oven right!

I had just did a no-knead bread in one a week ago. Pork chops with rice, potato, onions, and a canned soup a few days ago. Still recently new DO to me and learning as I go

Happy new year all,

Can't wait to try a mess. Gets it all done without having to cook it in shifts. Thanks for sharing W. A great New Year's message.

I've started to do the "mess" of bacon technique myself but was wondering what is the best way to get the bacon "sludge" from the bottom of the pan after cooking? I'm using a pan that has one coat of baked on Crisco and was wanting to go the rest of the way with real cooking. Thanks

I always use my DO to cook Holiday meals, like the turkey or ham, depending on the Holiday. I need to try it out for a few burgers, never actually thought of doing that. Thanks for the suggestion!

You separate the strips into a pile, dump the pile into a preheated skillet or DO and stir to separate the pieces with a fork. Every minute or so you stir again until cooked.
Taking W Hilditch's advice about treating your DO right, I let my son-in-law take the nearly acquired #6 Griswold DO for a test "drive" and cook a mess of bacon.

The bacon then went into a Brussels Sprouts dish prepared in my #9 "Erie". Think it is called Creamy Parmasean Brussels Sprouts. Unfortunately, no leftovers.

No, they've apparently been deleted.
