It's All Relative
Find pie irons online or at any large camping supply store. We build and cook these pies and serve them with fresh veggies, fruit, some pickles, and kettle chips. These two recipes are some we happen to really enjoy. You can get creative and try ham and cheese melts, reuben, BLT (with precooked bacon), breakfast pie with scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese, dessert pie with fresh fruit, pie filling and powdered sugar sprinkled on top, or s'mores with chocolate and marshmallow in the middle (minus the graham cracker).The Pizza Pie
