Potatoes and Onions in Cast Iron
2 tablespoons butter
Preheat a 10 inch Dutch oven, including lid. Combine butter, oil, and garlic in Dutch oven. Place a layer of sliced potatoes in bottom followed by a layer of onions, season with salt and pepper, and repeat layers again. Tuck the bacon or sausages in and around the potatoes. Set Dutch oven over hot coals and cover with lid, add more coals to the top, and bake 1 hour. Sprinkle cheese over potatoes and onions. Cover, add hot coals to top but not under the Dutch oven, and bake 30 minutes more, or until potatoes are tender. If not using a campfire, bake, covered, in the oven at 375 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours.
