Pie Iron Cooking

If you ever use a pie iron on your camping trips, please share some of your favorites recipes/creations.

Some ideas to get things going include:
  • Grilled cheese
  • Fruit pie
  • Omelet
  • Cornbread
  • Pizza
  • French Toast
Also, please indicate your preference for a cast iron or aluminum pie iron. [Note: Aluminum can melt or warp but is lighter. There could also be problems with the Teflon. Cast iron could be harder to clean and heavy to hold (though it can be propped).]

We bring a pie iron on most car camping trips. Fruit pies are what we make most often, but I also love gooey toasted peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

We've had one each of cast iron and aluminum. I like cast iron better, but I can't say I've noticed all that much difference in performance. With either one, careful cooking prevents disaster.

my brother in law got me one for christmas a few years ago. they're fun. i rather enjoy making bannock in mine, as well as various fruit/meat pies. i sort of treat it like a pirogue press, if you will.
