There's a season? I must have been doing it wrong all this time. Tongue

The beauty about a mountain pie is it doesn't have to be complicated, there is no one favorite but I am partial to pie filling in them.
I can't wait to get to camp!

Well, it's camping and campfire season anyway. They do work great on the stove indoors in the wintertime too.

Try making a traditional s'more and put the marshmallow, chocolate and graham crackers in between two buttered slices of bread. Gets everything all melty and if you're using a palmer pie maker the edges are crimped and you don't have the mess.

I made S'Mores Mountain Pies last year! They were awesome! Also switched it up a little with Reese's cups instead of Hersey's and even tried some cherry filling & Hersey's (Chocolate Covered Cherry Pie Irons)

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

Damn that sounds good too. I've been looking through my pantry and leftovers in the fridge to come up with other mountain pie ideas all weekend lol.

Where do you guys get your pie irons? What material, style and brand do you all use?

I've always used the palmer "irons" and we get them at a local place called Uncle Joe's Woodshed in Lock Haven PA. The aluminum ones work great and are inexpensive, about $17 a piece and they also have aluminum ones with nonstick coating and the cast iron ones too made by palmer. I've seen the Rome brand pie irons but they're just a toaster and not a real "pie iron" IMO because they don't crimp the bread.

Whatever you do, for those who are new at this, do NOT get one of those cheap Ozark Trail ones from Wally World.

I've always wanted to try one of the hot dog presses too.

I think all but one of mine are Rome, that other one is a Coleman, all cast iron.
We have a square double, a couple of singles in square and round, and one big one that is technically a cornbread cooker but brats & sausage fit in there great.

One thing I like doing is making egg/bacon/sausage/cheese english muffins in them for breakfast...those are a camp favorite. Need to have everything already cooked though, just warming them up and melting the cheese.
Something I would like to find is a waffle maker.

You don't pre-cook the eggs do you? I haven't made them myself but the way I've seen them done is crack the egg over one slice of bread first then stack cheese and meat on top and close it together and it cooks the egg in the fire.

Yeah, I cook the eggs in a small cast iron skillet first.
Makes them nice and round like the size of a muffin or bagel.

I do it this because some people want sausage, others want bacon, some don't want egg...it's just easier for me since I get stuck with breakfast duty because I'm always the first one up.
