Pie Iron Outdoor Cooking Ideas

Does your family love camping and/or bonfires? If so, check out this creative and simple method of outdoor cooking using a pie iron to make delicious toasted treats! My family went camping recently and we took along these cast iron campfire cooking tools that grill, toast, and bake. Start with some buttered bread and any type of filling (either savory or sweet!) and you’ve got a great sandwich or pie! 🙂

Use pie irons to make pudgie pies, hot sandwiches, calzones, fruit pies, biscuits, cookies, hamburgers, and more all over a fire – choose from different shapes and either cast aluminum or cast iron. We tried this particular Rome brand Cast Iron – it worked great and came already seasoned. Here are some easy and yummy cooking ideas for you:

Nutella Pies Butter 2 slices of sandwich bread. Place inside pie iron with buttered sides facing out. Spread Nutella on the inside of bread and add a couple marshmallows. Close iron and grill until golden. Be sure to check after a few minutes because we burned one the first time. The result is a sweet gooey pie! So good!

Pie Iron Quesadillas– Fill the center of a tortilla with a little shredded cheese and cooked chicken if desired. Fold tortilla to fit inside iron. Overlap edges so there’s no leakage. Cook until melted and top with salsa.

Campfire Sopapillas- Butter two pieces of cinnamon swirl bread. Place inside pie iron, buttered sides out. Spread insides with a little cream cheese. Close and grill until golden and toasted.

Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich- Butter two pieces of sandwich bread and place inside pie iron with buttered sides facing out. Spread prepared pesto on bread and add a slice of provolone cheese. Close and grill until golden and toasted.

Classic Pie Iron Fruit Pies- Butter two pieces of sandwich bread and place inside pie iron with buttered sides facing out. Fill with a little of your favorite homemade or store bought pie filling. Close and grill until melted and golden. Sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar if desired.

Although I haven’t personally tried it, you can even use homemade or prepackaged dough and biscuits to make calzones and baked treats. The possibilities are endless! 🙂 Visit for more info and recipes.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
