There’s nothing like sitting around the campfire, relaxing, while you catch up with friends and reconnect with your family. Watching the flames, talking, and cooking your favorite campfire foods over the hot coals is a great way to spend an evening. Campfire Pies: This is one of my favorite foods to prepare over the coals. You can choose the filling, anything from pizza toppings to fruit pie fillings. I chose homemade apple pie filling I canned using apples from my uncle’s orchard.
What you will need to make Campfire Pies:
Campfire with wood burned to glowing embers (perfect for cooking)
2 pieces of bread for each pie you want to make
Pie filling, homemade or store-bought, flavor of your choice (about 1/2 cup for each pie)
Pie Iron or Double Pie Iron for campfire
Instructions for Campfire Pies:
Butter one side of each piece of bread. Place one piece butter side down on one side of the pie iron. Spoon a small amount (about 1/2 cup) of pie filling in the center of the bread. Place the other slice of bread, butter side up on top of the pie filling.
Close the pie iron. Place the pie iron in the campfire for about 3-5 minutes per side or until golden brown. Take your pie out of the pie iron, allow to cool about 5 minutes. Enjoy!
