Dutch Oven - Fry Bread

Put 1/2 inch or more of cooking oil in your dutch oven. Remove a shovel full of coals from the fire and place your dutch oven on the coals. When it gets just hot enough to splatter when you put a drop of water in it, it's just right to start cooking. Take your favorite scone recipe and cook it to perfection.

VARIATIONS: Use frozen bread dough. Use over-risen biscuits and roll in sugar to make a dessert.
COOKING HINTS: You have to keep fooling with the fire because it's difficult to maintain. Use a long willow for turning.
