Anyone else do there cooking in pie irons? Love making pizza kind of like mini calzones, I have also made deserts pie also. Curious if others use them and what you like to cook in them.

You can they will cook pretty fast depending your fire, I use my single burner stove and just turn it over after a couple of minutes.

When I was a kid, we made pancakes in them, it's not easier than the traditional way, but they keep children occupied really well, also they're perfect for grilled cheese or paninis

Love using them - while camping, bonfires at home or even chimineas!

We have one that was designed for corn dogs even!

If you can source the old, vintage cast iron ones do so!

I got a cast iron one last year at Menards, just 5 bucks and it came with a recipe book

We used to carry a double one and used it occasionally. Eventually we took it out of our kit cause it was just another toy that didn't get used often enough.

My favorite recipe was doing 'fried pies'. We used the cinnamon swirl bread or raisin bread, buttered side to the iron and filled with either apple pie filling or some homemade spiced apple sauce. Cook till Alton Brown would say, "golden brown and delicious".IMG_20151005_193648_665.jpg

What are your favorite recipes? How do you make a calzone in the pie iron?
I use spray butter on the bread put that to the outside of the iron, then on top one of the bread slices load it up with your favorite pizza sauce and toppings and cheese. Close up and put over coals or stove for about 4 minutes per side open and enjoy.
