A pie iron, sometimes referred to as a camp cooker, is a camping staple. They are perfect for getting the whole family involved in the cooking process and a great way to turn a few slices of bread into a memorable experience.
All of the easy recipes included in this post are perfect for your next camping trip. With a few simple ingredients and a cast iron pie iron, you are all set to spend some quality time around the campfire as a family.
Tips & tricks:
- Many of these pie iron recipes will work with refrigerated crescent roll dough, biscuits, flaky rolls, or bread slices. Choose what you like best.
- Make a list of all the ingredients needed for all of your camping meals. This will be your packing list. It also makes it much easier to see exactly what groceries you need to buy and to make up a shopping list.
- When it comes to camping meals, do as much food prep as you can at home. This is an easy way to save time and effort on cleanup when you don’t have quick access to hot water.
- Using a double pie iron really speeds up the process of cooking. It is one of my favorite tools to have with us while camping.
- Campfire cooking is best done over hot coals, rather than an open flame. It is easier to get a more even heat that way.
