Pie Iron Pies
During my recent hiatus from Lunch Hour Crafts, I’ve been pretty busy making lots of wedding cupcakes, driving all over Ontario, booking spay/neuter appointments for the kittens (you knew my life was this wild, didn’t you?) and having a blast making campfire pies/hobo pies/pie iron pies.
The best, I tell you.
Essentially, they’re little cast-iron shells that lovingly enfold two buttered slices of bread and whatever filling your heart and tastebuds desire…my personal favorite is tomato sauce, cheese, and pepperoni, for a dinner pie, and cherry pie filling for a dessert pie. A fantastic camping invention and I seriously considered buying my own pie irons this weekend at Port Burwell. I still can’t understand why I decided not to.
Please, please…if you haven’t pie-ironed before, find a way to do it. It changes the way you do camping meals. We’re already dreaming of what else we can make in these things next year.
