Dutch Oven Potatoes

OK, this is just an estimate, I have never really had a recipe we just make these.

Dutch oven potatoes
for a 12 inch deep dutch oven

up to 10 lbs of potato, sliced. (you can do that by hand, I use the salad shooter. peeled or not)
1 lb bacon 3/4 for bottom, 1/4 for top
grated cheese
salt, pepper, season salt
sliced onion if you like that

we line our dutch ovens, but you don't have to. I like to slice small and cook 1/4 of the bacon and reserve it for the top.
cut up all your potatoes, line the dutch oven with the raw bacon. start to layer the potatoes, with salt, pepper, season salt and onion if desired. just season to taste, until you get all the potatoes in the dutch oven. cook with the appropriate # of coals for the size of the oven. check them at about 45 mins to 1 hr. when the potatoes are cooked through, add the grated cheese and the cooked bacon on top. when that melts, usually 15 min. you are ready to eat.
