Pie irons are great tools for cooking over campfires. These easy and delicious recipes will help you make the most of yours!
Pie irons are great for making warm desserts, melty sandwiches, and more! They might take up space in your car, but are worth bringing because of how versatile they are!
Pie irons (also called cast iron cookers) are hinged cast iron skillets with long handles so you can cook over a fire. You can find them in square, rectangle, and circle shapes, and are great for cooking all kinds of different recipes.
They are great because kids can help fill them and use them to cook over a fire. They make creating versatile and family friendly meals really easy! Even if you are short on space, we highly recommend creating room for them in your camp kitchen setup.
