A lot of people simply don’t realize their potential because they’re just so risk adverse. They just don’t want to take the risk.  –Benjamin Carson

12″ Dutch oven

12 medium potatoes, sliced
3 medium onions, diced
12 sliced bacon, diced
Salt and Pepper to taste
1-2 c frozen peas
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated

Brown the bacon in a 12″ Dutch oven using 15 coals on the bottom. When well browned, use a slotted spoon to remove bacon from the grease. Place bacon on paper towel to drain and set aside. Lightly brown onions in bacon grease. Stir in sliced potatoes and salt and pepper. Cook 35-45 minutes until potatoes are tender, stir in frozen peas and bacon. Sprinkle cheese on top. Remove coals from the bottom but leave approximately 15 coals on the lid to melt the cheese.
