With camping season upon us, I thought it would be a great idea to share my quick and dirty version of the famous “Pigs in the Hole” or “Toads in the Hole” recipe. Actually it is a far cry from the classic English versions using Yorkshire pudding and  more closely resembling the American “Pigs in a Blanket” recipe. Whichever side of the pond your are throwing rocks, this is a quick and easy, kid friendly, Dutch oven camp recipe.

Start the recipe off with sausage links grilled on your Dutch oven lid or in the pot, your choice!

Brown your sausage and cook till done.

I am using a Camp Chef  12 inch “Lewis & Clark” Dutch oven with the classic flat lid.

Here is how to use your Camp Chef Big Gas grill box for Dutch oven charcoal cooking.

Pre-heat your Dutch oven for ten minutes. (Not necessary if you cooked your sausage in the Dutch oven itself)

12 inch Dutch oven = 9 coals on bottom + 15 coals on top.

Mix up a batch of pancake batter.

Use a bit of the sausage grease to coat the Dutch oven and pour the batter in.

My all purpose pancake mix required 2 cups mix, 1 1/2 cups milk, 1 egg, and 2 tsp sugar. Giving me about 3 cups of batter.

There are several pre-mixed packages that only require water. Perfect for camping!

With Olympic Gold medal precision, place your sausage links into formation.

No need to push them down, they will settle as they cook.

Baking time took about 45 minutes but that will vary depending on the size of your Dutch oven and the weather conditions.

You should have a nice golden crust and the sides will have pulled away from the Dutch oven.

Use a toothpick to test if its done. Remember, insert toothpick in the middle of pancake batter, if it comes out clean, it’s done!

Cooked to perfection, a few pats of butter and drizzled with 100% Maple syrup.

This, of course, was a huge hit with the boys.

The Queen may be displeased and I extend my formal apologies to the empire for breaking with tradition … but this recipe was really good!!
