The Dutch oven is an unsung kitchen hero. A heavy duty cast iron pot that can go straight from the stovetop to the oven, it's perfect for making everything from chicken cutlets to soups and stews. It's also exactly what you need to cook over a campfire, and what's more, you can cook every meal in it. Here are Dutch oven camping recipes that deliver maximum deliciousness with minimum of effort. Everything here is healthy-ish, and each recipe needs fewer than 10 ingredients. Ready? Let's camp.

1. Apple Cider Oatmeal
