For my birthday two years ago, the Hardworking Husband bought me a Lodge Dutch Oven. It’s the kind that is coated in enamel. I love it. I have a few others on my want list. They are so versatile. I use mine to cook soups, pot roasts, roasting chicken, and somuch more. I love that I can start a casserole on the stove and then put it in the oven to finish. You can also use it as a slow cooker in your oven. One recipe I often cook in my dutch oven is Shepherd’s Pie (see bottom of the linked post). I start the filling on the stove; then top with mashed potatoes and finish it in the oven.
Another recipe I like to use my dutch oven for is Quiche for People Who Don’t Like Quiche. This recipe makes quite a bit and can be halved.
- 1 lb breakfast sausage
- 1 bunch green onions
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup biscuit mix, See link in instructions
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 3 eggs
- Salt & Pepper
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a dutch oven, brown sausage. Once cooked, remove from heat.
- Using scissors cut green onions. Sprinkle onions and cheese over sausage.
- In a blender mix milk biscuit mix, sour cream, and eggs. Pour over top the sausage. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Bake for 35 -45 minutes or until set in center. Let stand for 10 – 15 minutes before cutting
You can also make this in a casserole dish. Just brown the sausage in a skillet, and then put all the ingredients in the casserole dish.

I also made my own breakfast sausage. You can read about that here.
*Rosemary Brown’s Big Kitchen Instruction Book is out of print. However, if you can get your hands on a copy, I highly recommend it. I use it more often for the reference section than the recipes. While I like the recipes in it, the reference section is so very helpful. It has food facts, food storage, food terms, food math, substitutions, container capacities, and measurement and conversion charts.
I use the food math quite often. This section helps you convert the number of apples to cups, cups in a pound of sugar, ears of corn to cups, and so many more. And the substitutions list is rather extensive.
