After waking up from a night of sleeping in a tent, you just need something to start your day off right. These Dutch oven lemon blueberry biscuits will do just that. Light and flaky but packed with taste, these biscuits are a perfect camping breakfast.
I usually like recipes that you can make ahead of time and this recipe is no exception. If you don’t want to bring all of the supplies to the campsite, prepare the biscuit mixture ahead of time and keep it in a Ziploc bag in your cooler.
One of the other reasons I have come to love this Dutch oven breakfast is it can be made quickly. If you use enough coals, I tend to use around 10 on the bottom and 20 on top this dish can be cooked in under 20 minutes. I found this recipe on Everyday Dutch Oven, but it has been around and adapted many times, and for a good reason!
Dutch Oven Lemon Blueberry Biscuits
This is a from-scratch recipe that’s absolutely delicious, and quite easy to make. Like any biscuit, however, mastering the temperature and time for just the right doneness without burning is a sign of cast iron cooking expertise. Keep an eye on it – you’ll get it right.
