What type of pot do I need to prepare Glorious One-Pot Meals?
Every official Glorious One-Pot Meal recipe by Elizabeth Yarnell is designed to bake in a 2-quart cast iron Dutch oven and feed 2 adults.
Increasing the recipe is easy if you remember the one-quart-per-person rule of Dutch ovens used for Glorious Pot Meals.
I.e., to feed four people, use a 3 1/2-quart or a 4-quart cast iron Dutch oven and simply double the recipe. Be aware that larger meals may increase the baking time — refer to the chart in the cookbook.
Your Dutch oven need not be enameled cast iron, but an enameled version does have some advantages with easier clean up, storage and lighter weight when the pot is full of food. Unlike seasoned cast iron, enameled cast iron is dishwasher-safe and will never rust.
Both seasoned and enamel-coated cast iron Dutch ovens work with Glorious One-Pot Meals, and 2-quarts is the ideal size to feed two people.
