    September 2009 Recipe of the Month

    Title: Lasagna (12" Dutch Oven)
    Member: [CK] Beerlifter

    Serving Size: Feeds an Army.

    Ingredients:
    2 lbs. Hamburger meat (browned and drained)
    1 lbs Sausage (browned and drained)
    Lasagna noodles (1 package)
    2 lbs Cheese (more or less, however cheesy you like it)
    2 large jars of spaghetti sauce

    Directions:
    • In a 12 inch Dutch Oven pour just enough sauce in the bottom to
      cover it.
    • Sprinkle meat and sausage on top of sauce to about 1/4 in thick.
    • Sprinkle cheese on top of that.
    • Break noodles in half to fit in Dutch Oven and cover first layer.
    • Repeat till Dutch Oven is about 1 inch from top or out of Ingredients.
      Ending with cheese on top.

    Place a ring of coals around the bottom and a ring and a half around
    the top. This is right at 350 degrees.

    Cook Time: Cook for about 45 minutes checking every once in awhile just to show off! Check noodles for done. Then serve.

    Notes: This will feed an army so invite your
    camping neighbors!!

    It will look like something like this. I used a similar recipe not as much meat.

    Sounds delicious! What kind of noodles do you use? Cooked or "oven ready"?

    I used the Kroger Lasagna noodles in the green box. They are not pre-cooked. Broke the noodles and placed in the DO

    What kind of cheese? When we normally make Lasagna, we use Ricota and provolone. Would that work?

    This is the recipe i got from JU-DI I will add more meat next time but still turned out great!!!!!

    DO Lasagna

    1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
    23 oz spagetti sauce
    9 oz shredded mozzaella cheese
    3 eggs
    2 1/4 C cottage or ricotta cheese
    1/4 C grated parmesan cheese
    13 lasagna noodles
    1 1/2 tsp oregano
    3/4 C hot water

    Prehead DO. Brown the ground beef. When done, remove the beef to a large mixing bowl. Add spagetti sauce (I used Prego) to beef and mix well. In another bowl, add the cottage or ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese (reserve some for topping), eggs and oregano and mix well.

    Layer in DO as follows:
    4 noodles broken
    1/3 meat mixture
    1/2 cheese mixture
    **************
    5 noodles broken
    1/2 remaining meat mixture
    remaining cheese mixture
    **************
    remaining broken noodles
    remaining meat mixture
    remaining mozzarella sprinkled
    on top
    Pour hot water around the edges of the DO. Cover and bake for one hour. Check frequently.

    Hint: 12 briquettes on top, 12 on bottom. I added more on top during the last 10 minutes to brown the top layer of mozzarella.

    I usually use Barfilla uncooked lasagna noodles. I break them in half so they will fit in the dutch oven. Usually 2 noodles will make a layer in a 12 in DO.

    As far as the cheese goes..what ever type you like. I'm sure it doesn't matter. Experiment, that is how I came up with mine!!!

    Here is a pic of mine. Done and ready to eat.

    I'll have to admit I was a little concerned about useing the noncooked noodles the first time! Everything came out perfect. There are 4 of us and we couldn't finish it all so we started asking camping neighbors that had come by to see what we were cooking if they would like to have some!!!

    Johnathan made the trout, Steve. He never uses exact measurements of anything.

    We tried the recipe over the weekend. Maybe we didn't use enough sauce, but I think we will use oven ready noodles next time. Dutch oven cooking is great - just experiment and find out what works for you!

    Judy cut this recipe in half for the two of us and baked it in the "indoor" oven at home in a Pyrex dish. Came out perfect and we still had leftovers! No reason a half recipe shouldn't work in the D.O. When I try this outdoors I'll let yaz know what happens.
