We camped with these pie irons all during my childhood, never going beyond the standard pie filling recipe. Now that I'm on my own, I'm looking for variations on the theme. My newest idea is a take on a crepe I had at the Mall of America this spring--bananas and Nutella (that amazing chocolate-hazelnut spread). Can't wait to try it.

Another idea for pie iron desserts is to use slices of store bought angel food cake rather than bread. Yummy!

they still sell them. I use it a lot to make campfire apple pie.

I'm not sure if anyone else still has these things around but we have (from 30 years ago) these two pie-makers. One is supposed to put white bread in one side, add pie filling, top with bread and close it shut. Then the whole thing (which has a long handle) cooks over a campfire. It turns out like a toasty turnover.

My questions is: Has anyone tried anything different with these pie-makers? I was thinking of trying refrigerated biscuit dough in them to see if that would make them even better. It might make a complete mess, though.

Used ours this past weekend for when the kids wanted "Pizza" for lunch...

We used:

Hamburger Buns

Jar Pizza Sauce (Ragu) - 1 spoon full per side

4 slices of Pepperoni per pizza

Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (not too much or it mushes out and burns in the iron)

We found that 2-3 minutes per side worked best...not over cooked, not under cooked (first one we did we kept in too long and it burnt...but the kids ate it anyway!! It IS PIZZA remember!)

My 8 year old Nephew had 3 of these...he's a VERY fussy eater

My 12 year old Nephew had 4...even a few bites of the burnt one because he liked it sooo much!!

My 11 year old Niece only had 1...Why? Because there were only 2 packages of buns!! She had a grilled cheese after....which she said was good, but not as good as the "Pizza"!

I never bothered cutting the edges off - they just burn off or once crisped can be broken off easily.

OMG the angel food cake idea sounds amazing!!

I have an older iron but new ones are also sold on www.sportsmansguide.com, RV places and MEC.

My favorite thing these days is grilled angelfood cake (yes, on a grill). It sounds like the same concept. Yum, indeed.

Don't skimp. Next time you do a pizza sandwich, use a whole slice of mozzarella slice and load up on the pepperoni. No cutting into pepperoni slices allowed for better enjoyment. Also don't use alum type irons.

Okay, these things are only like $15-$20, I am so going to get me one! I like the smaller round one as I will be alone out there. Sounds like a great way to use up all kinds of left overs in a unique way!!

I mean think about it, you have sausage and scrambled eggs for breakfast one day, cook extra. Throw that plus some cheese in one of these deals the next morning and you have a whole new breakfast the next morning, maybe a little salsa too...

You have left over veggies and some ham or some kind of lunch meat that you need to use...Yep good dinner pie

A good pot pie would be a couple slices of meat, a dab of cream cheese and some veggies with a bit of canned soup of some sort (cream of celery) and you got you a single serving pot pie!

For those of you that already have one of these, it sounds like the possibilities are endless!
