Karl,

Key-eesch, really....

Looks like it has spinach in it.

By instinct men won't eat spinach as it is a natural spermicide.

No votes for quiche?  Rimmed Dutch oven ids will fit cast iron skillets as another way to bake pies as well as using a trivet inside a Dutch oven.

Karl, pay no attention to those who have no tastebuds nor imagination. I just have never made it in cast iron.

Quiche can contain ANY ingredients the heart/palate/stomach desires. Your pic of spinach quiche looks SOOOO good.

I cheat and make it in a 9" glass deep pie dish. I use Marie Callender's pre-made crust (excellent) but spray the glass with Baker's Joy (combination soybean oil and flour in a can) before placing the crust. (You will love me for that idea.)

Our usual combination is (in order of construction from bottom up): 1/2 lb. 1/2" cooked smoked ham pieces, 1/2 lb. crisp bacon crumbled, 2 cups frozen broccoli florets, 3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese, 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 1 lb. sliced, fresh sautéed mushrooms in butter and GOOD garlic powder, then a mixture of 5-6 beaten whole fresh eggs (with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper) scrambled with 1-1/2 cups heavy cream, then poured into the pie, and then another ample topping of shredded Swiss and Cheddar cheese to suit.

Bake uncovered at 375* for 95 minutes and remove to cool/set for another 10 minutes.

YMMV, but we have used this recipe for decades. My wife calls it garbage pie, but eats twice what I do.  Cool

Feel free to modify to your palate's/heart's/stomach's content.

Are Dutch ovens used on top of cookers as well as dug into the ground?

I don't do either.




Never understood why people want to keep putting them in holes, I don't dig holes for mine, I guess if someone wanted to dig holes for me I could, but still see no reason why. Wink

Now in that picture you will see dirt in a bit of a pile, the grass was removed and the spot leveled but I had a guy with a 1930's John Deere A with a bucket on the front do it.    I sometimes remove a bit of the top.  Yesterday I just built it right on the grass in the school yard and did just one oven at a time.





Of course it was a bit damp and we did have the fire dept on stand-by.

Skeeter; Are you using the term "cooker" in the English usage as a "stove"? if so, there are cast iron pots made with flat bottoms that can be used on stovetops or in ovens. My wife's Father gave her an entire set of cast iron cookware when she married me. It included a cast iron pot, much smaller than the ones Del uses. It is a No. 8, 10 inches across the top and 4 inches deep.

We are just running down on rhubarb season here so no more rhubarb or rhubarb/strawberry cobblers.  I have been using a simple dump style recipe:

about 1/2 a Dutch oven of good, clean, red, diced rhubarb (and strawberries)
about 1/2 cup brown sugar
mix 1/2 tbsp corn starch in 1/2 cup fruit juice then pour over fruit & sugar
a box of basic yellow cake mix dumped on top and mixed just enough to dampen
another 1/2 cup brown sugar on top
cut a stick of unsalted butter into 5-6 chunks and space out over top
bake on 400F or plenty of coals  for about 45 min - you want it a little "burnt" looking

Serve with cream or ice cream.
