    I used to have different ones in years past. Similar to grilled cheese sandwiches and those electric sandwich makers.

    Oh but they have so many more uses then making grilled cheese!

    You can cook steaks, fish , and meat pies... make deserts and even fry eggs and potatoes in them... icon_wink.gif

    Here are two:

    As with any pie maker recipe trim the bread or other ingredients that hang out the sides so they do not burn.

    Hash and Egg
    ( round pie iron )

    1/4 cup corned beef hash
    1 egg
    pad of butter

    Fry corned beef in a well greased PIE IRON until almost done.
    Open the cooker and form a 2 inch hole in the hash.
    Into the hole crack the egg and top with butter.
    Close the cooker and continue to cook until egg is done to your liking.

    Rueben Sandwich
    ( round pie iron )

    2 tbls cooked corned beef
    1 tbls canned sauerkraut
    1 slice Swiss cheese
    2 slices pumpernickle or rye bread
    softened butter

    Between buttered bread slices ( one side only ), place corned beef, kraut and cheese.
    Latch handles and grill unil bread is hot and toasty.

    I have several even one that is a waffle maker.
    The one thing we did with the grandkids was make pizzas in them.
    I would have small bowls of pizza fixings on the table and the kids were allowed to make thier own. I would use the tubed biscuit or dinner rolls to make the crust. I would roll it out thin. We had bottom and topped crusted pizzas just like Pizza Pockets.
    I have also fried eggs in one half.
    That Rueben sure sounds good

    Here is another fast simple recipe:

    Chilie Pie On Toast

    1 small can of chili
    2 slices bread of choice ( I like Italian for this )
    softened butter
    hot pepper flakes or hot sauce to taste

    Drain juice from chili.
    Butter the outside of 2 bread slices. Place 1st slice, buttered side down, into lower cooking cavity. Spoon 2 or 3 Tbls of the drained chili onto the bottom slice, add hot pepper of choice, top with the 2nd slice of bread , buttered side up.

    Eat this with a knife and fork, it is messy.

    Note: Shredded Cheddar cheese added to the filling makes a great addition.

    Here are a few links to sites with pie iron recipes:

    Contrary to what some will tell you these were not manufactured prior to the 1960's as used today, they are not pioneer utinsels, but are wonderful for camping and those times in the winter when the electric is out, you have a good fire going in the woodstove or fireplace and the kids love them.

    Some of these links will have duplicate recipes from the others.

    Use your imagination to create new recipes for these and share with us! icon_wink.gif

    I LOVE my pie irons. We use ours camping, and make almost all our meals in them. I can take along most of the food cooked already & just assemble, it saves the worry of keeping things cold enough & out of the melting ice in the coolers. Once a month we try to have a breakfast outside by the fire pit in our yard, rain, snow or shine!
    We spray the irons with "no stick" then assemble the pies & cook in the fire. Eggs, bacon, sausage, cheese, salsa, peanut butter & jelly all good breakfast choices. Pizza sauce & cooked burger, pepperoni & mozzerella or cooked burger, cheese for lunch. Chili & cheese, ham & cheese I love it all
    My husband's favorite dessert is cherry pie fillng with bits of Hersheys chocolate bar and maybe marshmallow all melted & gooey..
    The possiblities are really endless, and best aprt is almost no dishes! Just turn them out on a paper plate

    I have seen these, but never, ever tried one.

    How close to the fire do you put it? In the flames? close to the coals?

    You lay them on the coals. If you put them in the flames of a roaring fire, the crust purns and the insides doesn't get warm. Give them a try. Great for kids. I have set up Pizza ingredients and left the grandkids make and cook thier own Pizzas when camping. They loved it. I have used bread, biscuit or dinner rolls in the tube or tortia shells for the crust.

    We love our pie irons. Have made the pizzas, grilled cheese, fruit pies and something simple to do is buy the Pillsbury cinnamon rolls and do them in the pie irons. When done just spread the icing on top for a wonderful treat.

    All these sound good!

    My 1.5 yo granddaughter was over the other day, the temp was about 75° and I was burning some small downed limbs. Well to make a long story short we pulled out the pie irons and made peanut butter and jelly pies.
    She was in heaven.

    A friend of mine does a sloppy joe mix in between flattened white bread. Ridiculously good, though I didnt want to admit it.

    Sometimes I like to "get fancy" while camping. A bit of butter, chicken breast, s&p, cook on the one side, flip and add a good squeeze of lime or lemon and add a generous pinch of fresh herbs. Chives, rosemary, thyme, sage. The pie irons dont come out as much as they used to, but often wonder when using them why not. icon_smile.gif

    I don't have a pie iron. But I wouldn't mind having one. We have a fire pit on our property and every summer we roast marshmallows and all the usual things that kids like. One of my favorites is making a Dump Cake.

    And I have always used our cast-iron Dutch oven to make Dump Cake over the fire. It works out OK, but it's just a bit too large for a cake. So I'm wondering, do you think a pie iron might be better for an open-fire Dump Cake recipe?
