Make Your Own Dutch Oven Liners

Dutch Oven Liners are great to use while camping. Find out how easy it is to make your own.

We love cooking in a cast iron Dutch oven. We have joined custody of two of them.

They belong to a close friend, but she doesn’t camp much anymore. We kept borrowing them so she said just hold onto them.

We like to cook desserts and main dishes in them. You can see our Dutch oven creations here.

Have you ever tried cleaning a Dutch oven while camping? It can be a pain, so we like to use Dutch oven liners. They help keep the food from sticking to the side of the pot.

You can purchase liners here, but we figured out that it’s much cheaper to make them yourself.

Dutch Oven Liners are incredibly easy to make. All you need is a roll of parchment paper, a measuring tape, and scissors.

Directions at the bottom of this post.

There are no special instructions for cooking with a liner and your food will taste the same as if you don’t use a liner.

Clean up is a snap! Just pull out the liner and toss it when done.

We will use our liner to wrap any leftovers. How simple is that?

How do you find parchment paper wide enough for a 12" Dutch oven? I've been using the Lodge brand of liners for years as they are large enough for a 14" Dutch oven.

I do same for preparing and cooking lasagna in a cast iron skillet and ‘baking’ on our gas grill. Safe and clean also!

@Julie, Haven't tried "baking" on our gas grill. What temperature would you take the grill to for baking lasagna? I made parchment liners for my jumbo muffin tin to freeze sweet potatoes that had been roasted---made into individual servings for daughter and granddaughter to prepare quickly during their hectic schedules.

You don't need a tape measure to get a square. Hold the roll in your left hand and pull the paper off the roll with your right. Take the upper right corner and pull it down and to the left so the right edge lines up with the bottom edge. Cut off the formed triangle and you have your square when you open it up.
