Pie Iron Cooking

Post  chuck on Sun Apr 11, 2010 12:59 am

I finally used my camp fire pie iron last week. Works great.. very tasty eating too. I am looking forward to trying other ingredients soon.

This time.. I sprayed each half of the iron with PAM.. then placed a flour tortilla in one half of the iron.. added white meat chicken.. chopped green peppers, chopped onions and mozarella cheese. Topped with another flour tortilla.. and closed the iron. A couple of minutes in the campfire.. and you have a tasty, toasted chicken sandwich. Eat it with a fork.. or with your fingers! Next time I might add some kind of white creamy sauce to the mix... or have some ranch dressing or sour cream for dipping.

I bought the small tortillas.. and used two for each sandwich. I think next time I will buy larger tortillas.. and just fold them over.. using only one per sandwich.

As for different ingredients.. I am thinking about using pre-cooked hamburger meat, onions, peppers, cheddar cheese and some spicy tomato sauce. Sort of like a chili pie!

another thought on the "Chili Pie" samich.. instead of using the crumbled (pre-cooked) hamburger and some kinda sauce.. I think I will pre-prepare the "SPICY" MANWICH.. and keep it in the fridge.. Then spoon a few scoops of the MANWICH into the tortilla shell.. add peppers, onions, cheese.. and maybe a few corn chips.. close up the pie iron and into the fire!

We usually make pizza with them. We take and spray them with PAM and then add bread, pizza sauce, cheese and pepperoni. I have also put in apple, cherry and blueberry pie fillings inside the bread (great fried pie)

I've never had anything out of a Dutch Oven that wasn't yummy and more yummy. We used to make a peach cobbler with cake mix and canned peaches back in my Boy Scout days. That was a popular dutch oven dish.

Chuck, I seem to remember that we had planned to do Pie Iron night once before but we got rained out. I bet we have quite a few that have pie irons. Who all is in?

We also do cinnamon "rolls" on a broom handle over the fire - might have to remember to bring our handle with us. I'm not sure where it is - haven't seen it in a while.

This is a re-run post from the etncc board, but it fits. I had forgotten about it.

I got this from Ron in Emmett, Idaho. I can't wait to try it out.


Ron Writes:
CAMPFIRE PIZZAS: These are a great meal not only because they are delicious, but they also bring the family around the campfire. By preparing the sausage ahead it is a very easy meal for the cook. Use paper plates and most of the cleanup is done by burning on the fire.

bread
soft margarine
pizza sauce
mozzarella cheese (we get the bags of pre-shredded cheese)
whatever you like on pizzas (we use pepperoni and pre-browned Italian sausage)

Butter one side of two pieces of bread. On the dry side of one piece of bread spread on the pizza sauce. Spread it evenly. Add your toppings, pepperoni, Italian sausage, etc.

Add the shredded mozzarella cheese and topoff with the second piece of buttered bread with the butter to the outside of the sandwich. For the first sandwich of the meal, spray the inside of the iron with Pam. Clamp the sandwich in the iron. Usually part of the bread is pinched on the outside. Place the iron in your campfire over some hot coals. Check it often by opening the iron and peaking at the sandwich. (They are easy to burn) Turn it over when the first side is almost done as it will continue to cook. When the bread is browned on each side pop the pizza sandwich out and let it cool a little. Be careful; they are usually very hot! ENJOY!

Italian Sausage:

1 pound of mild pork sausage
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. dry parsley flakes
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. fennel seed

In a fry pan combine the pork sausage with the seasonings and cook until brown, stiffing often and breaking up sausage. Drain well on paper toweling. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Thanks for sharing Ron.

For the PIE IRON campfire cooking on Saturday at SMOKY BEAR.. I'll bring these ingredients for making a chili pie:

Pre cooked MANWICH (Bold and Spicy)
Chopped green peppers
Chopped onion
Cheddar cheese
soft tortillas
sour cream for topping after baking

Should have plenty for anyone who wants to try one.. it doesn't take very much Manwich to fill the little pie iron.. especially when adding other things.

This is going to be a yummy trip! I may need to get a second pie iron. I gotta remember to get some PAM. The one I got at wal-mart is supposedly non-stick, but a bit of PAM couldn't hurt.

I just posted a bunch of pie iron recipes in the post about the river plantation trip. They should have been posted here. Oops.

Anyway, I plan to experiment with my electric sandwich maker between now and the river plantation trip by cooking some of those recipes that are posted in the other thread. if I hit any sure-fire winners I'll let you know.

Try using a tortilla, sprinkle it with a small amount of sugar and cinnamon, put a piece of Hershey's chocolate bar in it (small piece) and a marshmallow, fold the tortilla over and them smash it down - sandwich type of Smores.

My kids love them - I will make them occasionally during the winter on my sandwich maker.

Re: Pie Iron Cooking

Post  Richard on Tue May 18, 2010 10:19 pm

Who would have thought it. There is a www.pieiron.com. Here's what they have:

RECIPES
The great thing about pie iron cooking is that it's easy for anyone to get involved which makes it all the more inclusive and fun when cooking in a group or with the family. Although the learning curve is slight for basic sandwiches and pies, the complexity can be taken up a notch or two for those so inspired.

Every pie iron from Rome Industries ships with tips, ideas and recipes to get you started.

if you want to dig deeper into Pie Iron cooking, be sure to check out the two cookbooks that we publish.

Basic Instructions
1. Place slice of bread, butter side down, on lower half of cooker. Spoon fruit, meat, or other filling on center of bread (see recipes).
2. Place second slice of bread, butter side up, on top of fillings. Latch hand; trim off excess bread if necessary.

3. Toast over campfire, fireplace or bbq until golden brown on both sides. A delicious snack in 4 to 6 minutes.




Aluma Fruit Pie
Use any canned pie filling; apple, cherry, and peach are delicious. Place filling between your choice of bread as per our basic direction. Grill until golden brown. Sprinkle with sugar and serve.

Don's Square Pie Sauerkraut
This is a favorite recipe of our Cleveland based sales rep Don Schuller.

2 slices white bread
Leftover mashed potaoes (tip - when making potatoes substitute mayo for milk)
Sauerkraut
Shredded cheddar
optional ingredients - Leftover spareribs, deboned & chopped into 1" strips.

Place slice of bread, buttered side down, into cooker. Fill with ingredients, cover with remaining slice of bread buttered side up. Close cooker, latch handles and grill until toasted.

Cornbread
Prepare cornbread mix according to direction on package. Into a well greased cooker, fill cavity about one third with mix. Close, latch handles and bake over very low heat until done.

Rocky Road Treat
Spread peanut butter on 2 slices of bread. Add one large marshmallow and one chocolate bar square between buttered bread slices/ Toast in cooker until bread is golden brown.

Fried Potatoes
Place sliced potatoes in cooker, add butter, salt and pepper (to taste) and close. Grill on both sides over low heat.

Tuna Melts
Mix canned tuna fish, chopped pickle and mayonnaise. Place on slice of bread, buttered side down, and add slice of Havarti cheese and a slice of tomato. Cover with remaining side of buttered bread and grill until hot and toasty.

Beef Pie
Place one piece of pie dough loosely in cooker cavity, buttered side down. Add cubed, cooked beef, cooked potato slices, onions and pepper. Cover with remaining piece of pie crust, buttered side up. Close grill and latch handles. Bake for approximately 5 minutes.

Pizza Pie
Place slice of pizza crust in cooker cavity, add tomato puree, green peppers, slivered garlic, oregano, mozzarella cheese and top with pepperoni. Cover with second slice of pizza crust. Grill 3 or 4 minutes on each side or until desired doneness is reached. English muffins or sliced bread or pita can be used in place of pizza crust.

Garlic Buns
Spread inside of burger buns with butter and sprinkle with garlic salt and paprika. Turn each bun inside out and place into cooker cavity. Grill until golden brown.

Hot Ham and Cheese
Place slice of bread, buttered side down, into cooker. Place slice of ham and slice of cheese on bread. Add Dijon mustard and cover with remaining slice of bread, buttered side up. Close cooker, latch handles and grill to golden brown.

Sloppy Joes
Use canned, pre-cooked sloppy joe mix or make your own mix with hamburger, barbecue sauce and onion. (Meat must be precooked.) Place mix between buttered bread and cook over low heat until hot and toasty.

Bacon and Tomato Special
Fill whole wheat bread with sliced tomatoes, crisp bacon, lettuce and mayonnaise. Toast sandwich for 3 to 4 minutes in pie iron.

Eggs
Open cooker and use as two skillets, place one egg in each side of cooker. Use cooker in closed position for scrambled eggs; add onion, cheese, pepper, and mushrooms for omelettes.

French Toast
Dip 2 bread slices into egg batter, place both slices into cooker, placing strawberry jam between bread slices. Toast until browned.

Grilled Onions
Place thinly sliced sweet Spanish onions (or Vidalia onions) into cooker cavity. Add a little celery, salt, parsley and a splash of beer. Close cooker and grill until onions are soft..

Entry #12 Pie Iron Pizza
17 March 2005
Sheena Coyne
We always cook sausage patties for breakfast and always have leftovers. At the end of the evening while we're all sitting around the fire we get out the leftovers and the pie irons. We butter the bread and put the first piece in the pie iron, then we add a teaspoon of pizza sauce and spread it around the bread. Then we sprinkle on some shredded cheese and crumble on some of the leftover sausage. I also like to add chopped onions on mine. Then put the other piece of bread on with butterside up. Close your pie iron and stick it in the fire, 5 minutes on each side. Check the bread for brownness.

Entry #16 Easy-Peasy Pockets
27 May 2005
Gwendolyn West
Recipe:
Butter both sides of the pie iron and put a slice of bread on each side. Fill center of one slice of bread with canned beef stew or canned chili. (We use leftover chili or stew that has been frozen. It's thawed by the time we're ready for dinner, and the frozen food helps keep the cooler cold). Add some shredded cheese for an added treat. Fold and fire as usual. Hot, bubbly and delicious every time.

.Here's more. The internet is loaded with sandwich maker and pie iron recipes. I'm getting hungry!

RE: Recipes for a Sandwich Maker
By quickcooker (51) Profile Contact


Hope you enjoy these.

The sandwich maker is Great for eggs...you can just cook them like you would a fried egg (without all the grease) or you can mix up like scrambled eggs or with omelet fixin's.

Biscuit Sandwiches

You can put a small biscuit or half of a larger one in the bottom of
one side and flatten it out and put all kinds of toppings on it--mini
pizzas with pizza sauce and cheese and whatever other toppings you
like--sugar and cinnamon--pie filling--

Muffin mixes - They can be used (try plain corn muffin mix with hot dogs-whole or sliced= for a version of corndogs-or pancake batter with breakfast sausages).

Bisquik Batter or pancake mix or muffin mix works too-and you can add
other things with it if you want to make it more of a meal or a dessert
or a snack.
