I typically make a batch of our Tinfoil Packet Philly Cheesesteak and then use the leftovers for this pie iron sandwich the next day.  This makes the cooking time a lot shorter but today I will show you the whole process from start to finish.

Over the years I have experimented and tried out pretty much every camping tool known to woman.  I love to cook and make delicious food while we are camping in the wilderness.  Here are some of my favorite products to use while camping (affiliate links).

Camp cooking essentials:

  • Menu planning for camping is something that I always do to stay organized.  Grab this free Meal Planner Printable to get started on your next trip.
  • A Pie Iron Camp Cooker makes cooking over the open fire super easy.  Check out these 20+ Pie Iron Recipe Ideas for tons of camp cooker inspiration!
  • Foil Pie Plates make tinfoil packet meals even easier with the sturdy base that they provide. 
  • These Grilling Bags that I recently found are amazing!  Simply add all of your ingredients to the bag at home then throw it on the campfire or grill when camping in the great outdoors.  Avoid the grill bags with plastic windows, they melt (yikes!).

Be sure to watch the iron carefully so that your sandwiches doesn’t burn over the fire.  I open the pie iron occasionally to check for doneness and flip from side to side often.

Tips for camping meal preparation:

  • Prepare meals in advance at home whenever possible.  Leave most of the mess at home where running water is more accessible and clean up is easier.  Trust me on this one!
  • Create “one pot” family style meals for quick dinners that don’t require a lot of thought. 
  • Use tinfoil packets, foil pie pans or camp cookers (aff link). These tools help to make clean up a breeze!
  • Pack ingredients in 1 gallon size ziploc bags for flexible storage in small fridges and coolers.
  • Plan meals that use similar ingredients to help make packing and planning easy.  These Cheesy Campfire Dip, Loaded Campfire Potatoes and Campfire Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich recipes are some of my favorites.
