Hunter's Dutch Oven Taters

8 carrots, peeled and sliced
8 potatoes, peeled and sliced
1 onion, chopped
10 peices of bacon
salt and pepper to taste
2 Tbls. butter
vegetable oil to grease dutch oven with

Hunter figured two carrots and two potatoes per person be a good amount to use. First he oiled the dutch oven with vegetable oil. Then he added the butter to the dutch oven. Next he peeled and sliced the potatoes and carrots. Then, he cut up the bacon using a pair of kitchen scissors. Lastly he chopped the onion fine (which I would have done differently, I would have just cut them up in rings.) Salt and pepper to taste. Add all the ingredients to the dutch oven. Cook over hot coals with parent supervision. Stir well, and often. Oh, and one last thing..he like to eat them with ketchup.

Hunter needed to cook an outdoor meal to pass off a requirement for scouts. We thought he better do this soon before it snows! Hunter did a WONDERFUL job. He did everything himself, from preparing the ingredients, to starting the fire, stirring, and clean up. Great job Hunt! They were AWESOME!
