|How to make mountain pies|
Roasting marshmallows, making S’mores, and of course, my favorite mountain pies. In this post, I’m going to show you how to make mountain pies, just in case you've never heard of one. Some people call the campfire hobo pies.
The first thing you need is a nice roaring camp fire, we use our portable camping fire pit in our back yard. Next, you’ll need mountain pie irons, and then some goodies to fill them up and enjoy these tasty little treats.
For Father’s Day this year my daughter got me a set of Rome cast iron mountain pie irons. After following the directions to season them, they made the most wonderful and delicious mountain pies.

There are so many mountain pie recipes: This is one of my favorites
· Add about a tablespoon of pizza sauce, you can whip up your own or buy it already in a jar.
· Now add some pepperoni and mozzarella cheese. Add some mushrooms if you like.
· Butter a second slice of bread and place it on top of your fillings with the butter side up.
· Close the pie iron and place it in the fire, turning it occasionally, for about 4 to 5 minutes.

You can pull it out of the fire to check it during the process to make sure it’s not burning. The hotter the mountain pie iron gets the quicker they cook.
The best thing about mountain pies is that you can use any filling your heart desires. For example, my second pie was apple and cheddar cheese, you can make any hot sandwich you like using these pie irons.
The pie irons come with some nice recipes to get you started, from sweet treats to savory pies and sandwiches.

Just a word of caution: Your mountain pie irons will be extremely hot so be careful for yourself and the kids.
As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.
