King of the Road.





One common thread you will find in just about all of our camping recipes is they are cooked in a Dutch Oven. Dutch Ovens are available in many sizes, from 1 quart to 8 quart. Figure about 1/2 to 1 quart per serving and you will be able to determine how large of a Dutch Oven to buy. And my advice - only buy the best... and that means a "Lodge" brand Dutch Oven. Dutch Ovens can be used over the campfire, or for rainy days or when you need to accurately control the heat, they can be used in a conventional oven.

So I suppose these could be called "Dutch Oven" recipes. However, if you don't have a Dutch Oven, don't let it discourage you... however, I highly recommend one for the best results. For example, our Lodge Dutch Oven has indentations in the lid that allow moisture to drip back into the food. This results in very moist cakes and other dishes.

Remember that when you are camping, you are on vacation. All of you. So guys, give your wife a break and you do the cooking on your next camping trip. In fact, this is a dish that your children can make, so why not have them do it.



King of the Road is essentially Hot Dog Casserole, and is a hit with the kids.



  • one square crackers (sodium free is best)
  • Can tomato soup (low sodium is best)
  • one package frankfurters or all beef hot dogs.
  • onion
  • 2 cups Cheddar Cheese




  In a Dutch Oven, crumble the crackers, add the soup with perhaps 1/4 cup of water, and then add the hot dogs and onions. Mix well. Finally, add the Cheddar Cheese - cover and pop into an oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.



  Can be served as is, or with hot sauce. My prefered hot sauce is Franks, as it is not really too hot, but adds a lot of flavor.
