Tips for cooking with a pie iron:

  • When cooking with a pie iron, begin by applying non stick cooking spray or oil to the inside of both iron plates.   This step is important so that your delicious meal doesn’t stick to the iron and burn.
  • Place your recipe ingredients into the iron before closing and latching it.
  • Cook the recipe over an open fire. We recommend placing the iron over the fire for two minutes before unlatching, checking for doneness and flipping the iron over to cook the other side.
  • Use caution when handling both the metal latch and handles as they can become hot while cooking.

Ingredients:

  • French bread, sliced
  • Milk
  • Eggs
  • Butter
  • Vanilla
  • Cinnamon
  • Syrup

HOW TO MAKE PIE IRON FRENCH TOAST:

We like to use this double camp cooker from Woods whenever we’re making french toast because you can cook two slices of bread at a time.  Single pie irons like the other ones we have work too, they just take a bit longer.  When you’re cooking for hungry boys it’s good to make as much food as quickly as possible. LOL

Directions:

1. Start by greasing the inside of the iron if needed.

2. Mix the egg, milk, cinnamon and vanilla in a medium bowl.

3. Dip each side of the bread in the egg mixture and place inside the camp cooker.

4. Cook over the coals of a campfire for about 5 minutes per side.

5. Open the iron and check for doneness.  When cooked, serve with butter and syrup.
