Make your next camping trip memorable with quick and easy hobo pie iron recipes your family and friends will love!
Are you familiar with iron pie makers for camping?
Fortunately, enough, there is a way you can relax with friends and family in the great outdoors and still have fun with your favorite foods. It is called a pie iron, and what it is, is a compact, sturdy container made of pre-seasoned cast iron or aluminum with long handles that lets you cook your food directly over the campfire or coals. Pie irons are also known as camp iron pie, pudgy pie, mountain pie, or hobo pie.
When you are camping in the wilderness, the pie iron becomes your best friend for preparing a wide variety of popular campfire recipes. With a smart selection of ingredients and a little imagination, you can grill, bake, and roast to savor your favorite meals using only this small pan.
The pie iron is sometimes known as a “sandwich maker,” but it’s useful for much more than just cooking sandwiches. Be it breakfast buns, waffles, omelets, cinnamon rolls, pies, pizzas, wraps, fajitas, cookies—and yes, sandwiches—its simple design lets you cook a variety of meals in just a few minutes over the campfire or coals. And with only two surfaces in contact with the food, it’s also easy to clean up after you’re done cooking.
