    So my mom and dad gave me a cast iron Dutch oven for Christmas and haven't used it yet bc I can't find or think of anything to cook in it. What do you guys cook in your Dutch ovens? Also specify on the grill or in the oven. I forgot how many quarts it is. It's an emirl. Don't think I spelled his name right

    I have one and love it! My favorite meal so far as been lamb. Honestly, I've just googled 'Dutch oven meals' and gone from there, trying different recipes. I use mine on a cooktop and then in the oven. Usually brown the meat in the dutch oven on it's own, add veggies, broth, red wine, etc, cover and simmer. I believe I have the Emeril one as well, it's a good sized one, don't remember how many quarts.

    If you are cooking for a group brunch i highly suggest dutch oven french toast! With some real maple syrup....it's a great superbowl/ tailgate/ new years day food...

    Cook some desserts in it or anything in it! They are so versatile you won't believe what you can cook.

    I cook all my game meats in my Dutch oven. Cook it nice and slow at 225 for 4 to 5 hour's, while out at evening hunt. Venison Roast, stews, and grouse are the best in the Dutch oven.
