Tom and I had this last year while camping At Abol Bridge Campground overlooking a spectacular view of Mt. Katahdin in Maine. We love to do dutch oven cooking when we camp, and It's a simple, easy and rustic recipe that taste so good in the outdoors. When we made this the other day we cut the recipe in half. In the picture that I posted, there is too much cheese on the top. Now, I can eat cheese til it comes out of my ears, but in this case it was too much. So, if you cut the recipe in half, only use one cup of cheese. You could also cook this in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes
