Pie Iron Pizza

Are you going camping or just having a fire in your back yard?  We have an amazing, fun idea for you.  We recently found these great things called “Pie Irons”.  They simple to use and you and the kids will enjoy time spent together as well as yummy food.  What more could you want, right?! Here is the list of a few things you will need for this fun activity:
  • Pie Irons (can be purchased online or at most camping stores, $10-$20).
  • Bread
  • Pizza or Spaghetti Sauce
  • Pepperoni or meat of your choice
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Can of Pie Filling
  • Butter
  • Cooking Spray
  • Fire

Now simply take your Pie Irons, spray them with your cooking spray.  Take your bread and butter one side of them, place in the pie iron add your fillings, place your second piece of bread on top (butter side out, just like a grilled cheese sandwich), close your pie iron and place on your hot fire.  Depending on how hot your fire is you will need to check every so often to see when they are a golden brown.  Be sure to flip your pie iron so they will cook on both sides.  It typically takes about 3 to 5 minutes for the bread to get a nice golden brown.

This is a great activity to do when your kids enjoy playing on their wood tree swing.  Have fun with it and be sure to try different things.  Also if you find a good combination of flavors that you and your family like to cook in your pie irons, be sure to pass your suggestion along to us.
