St. George Dutch Oven ‘Taters

St. George Dutch Oven 'taters

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

This is very easy recipe I got from Crazy John Christensen in St. George, Utah that we used during a home show.


  • 1/2 lb diced bacon
  • 1 medium yellow onion (or onion variety of your choice)
  • 5 lb of sliced potatoes, skin on or off (or an amount that will nearly fill the oven being used)
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Garlic minced (fresh or dry)


  1. Add bacon to Dutch oven and fry.
  2. Once the bacon starts to get crispy add onions and cook until translucent.
  3. Add potatoes.
  4. Add salt and pepper to taste and finish off with a smattering of garlic.
  5. Give it all a real good stir.
  6. Over a medium heat and stirring occasionally this should be ready in 30 - 40 minutes.
  7. Once the steam starts coming out from under the lid you'll know it's ready to serve up.


We sliced the potatoes the night before and stored them in a bucket covered with water and sealed with a lid. If you have a large crew that might require a 14 deep oven you will need to add to the amount of ingredients appropriately. You will also need to increase the cooking time to 45 - 60 minutes. In one day we went through 4 full pots of these 'taters using a 14 deep Dutch oven.
