Buttermilk Biscuits- The Big Batch

This is a repeat recipe from one we've featured on this blog before- the only difference is doubling the batch and cooking them in the 14" Dutch oven.  Served up with sausage gravy, this was one excellent camping breakfast dish!  We made 13 big biscuits (we used a mug as a biscuit cutter).  Each person only needed 1 biscuit.  You could use a smaller cutter to make more.

Applesauce Drop Donuts

Is it donut or doughnut?  I don't know, but I do know that these are good!

So, I have to admit we didn't make this in our Dutch oven.  That's okay- it could be made in a DO and we did do it at the campground, doesn't that count for something?

Simple Garlic Knots

We served up these little biscuits with the Shepherd's Pie.  They are quick and easy, but look fancy.  To feed everyone, we doubled the recipe.  (Amounts are for the doubled recipe)

Shepherd's Pie

Finally, we took a camping trip!  First one for our little Owen! 

We camped with Matt's brother & family and took turns cooking our campsite meals.  The next few posts will feature recipes that we tried over the weekend.

There were 6 adults and 3 kiddos (who eat food anyway).  What could we make that could feed a lot of people?  We thought and thought... finally we settled on Shepherd's Pie.  Though traditionally, Shepherd's Pie is made with ground lamb or beef, we decided on a slight twist on the recipe using a shredded beef roast.
