Campfire Pie Iron

Whether you're preparing a campfire meal or just a simple snack, cooking with a campfire pie iron makes the process fun and easy.

Often called a mountain pie, hobo pie, or pudgy pie, the design of the pie iron is pretty simple.  

2 metal castings (constructed of aluminum or cast iron) are hinged together to form a cooking compartment.  Long metal rods with wooden handles extend from the cooking compartment to keep your hands safely away from the hot fire.

To prepare a snack, simply place 2 buttered peices of bread inside the cooking compartment butter side out.  

Next, place your desired ingredients (usually cheese or pie filling) between the 2 pieces of bread.  

Close the iron by locking the 2 handles together and place it over the fire.

After about 4 or 5 minutes of even roasting your done!  Open up the handles to view your delicious golden creation.
