25+ one dish cast iron skillet and Dutch oven recipes for easy indoor, outdoor and wood stove cooking.

25+ One dish cast iron Dutch oven recipes. These are perfect for using indoors, as well as outdoor cooking and on the wood stove for when the power is out, being prepared or saving money on your electric bill. These are some great cast iron Dutch oven recipes, broken down by main dish and dessert. I can't wait to try some of these. Cast iron is the number one cookware in my kitchen. Our grandmothers knew the wonder of cast iron and there are some old-fashioned things, okay a lot of old-fashioned things, we’d do best to go back to and leave the newer stuff in the stores. Teflon is not allowed in our home but despite it’s questionable health issues, cast iron is much more efficient at turning out luscious desserts, succulent meats, and fluffy breads. Are ya hungry yet?

Oh, good. Because I’ve got some fun cast iron Dutch oven recipes. Because really, half the fun of cast iron is being able to cook on a wood stove (how to cook on a wood stove) or outdoors with coals. You now, true pioneer stuff.

Am I the only Mom who loves only dirtying up one pan and having supper ready?
