Camping Recipes with Pie Irons

Cooking can get a little bland and boring when camping. Hamburgers, chicken and hot dogs are fun for short trips, but for long trips you will want to add some spice to your meals. A good way to do this is to find a good pie iron. They aren’t expensive, they are very portable and can help you make hundreds of amazing items over a campfire.

Tip: Get each camper their own pie iron. They aren’t too expensive and you can make meals a lot faster and get the kids involved more when everyone has their own iron. Make it fun and give them as gifts for the holiday or birthday. Owning your own piece of camping equipment can be a big deal to little campers as well!

Pie Iron Pricing

Pie irons can be pretty inexpensive, and are very easy to store and pack. They are lightweight and can easily fit anywhere. Pie Irons are typically about $20 – $25, but I have seen some really nice pie iron sets that go for over $50. It may be best to start out with an inexpensive one and find out what you like and don’t like and go from there.

A good brand to go with is Rome Industries. They carry a good pie iron for a reasonable price on Amazon.

Pie Iron Meal Ideas – Easy Camping Recipes

Grilled Ham and Cheese – make sure to toast the bread well before putting it in the pie iron.

Fruit Pies – use canned fruit in between bread, if you happen to have biscuit cans, even better.

English Muffin Pizza – spread sauce, cheese and your favorite toppings in between english muffins and cook in your pie iron.

Philly Cheese Steak – bring along some meat and place between a nice sub roll. Add cheese. Take it up a notch with some grilled mushrooms, green peppers, and onions. This one is a huge hit!

Tacos – use corn tortillas and fill with pre-made taco meat, along with all your favorite taco toppings.
