That is a pie iron.

We do everything from breakfasts, to desserts, lunch sandwiches, etc.

Use Pillsbury biscuits, eggs, peppers, onion, cheese, whatever you want. Also do a really good Rueben in them :thumbsup:

oh yummy. Known as hobo pies or mountain pies. And we can do breakfast lunch dinner or dessert.

In addition to Huntr's list you can do ones like pizzas, grilled cheeses and even get fancier with fruits and cream cheese for desserts. Endless options. Common denominator is the biscuits or cressant rolls and you can put preety much anything you want in the middle.

Are the eggs raw?  What about veggies precooked??  I have seen grilled cheese but that is easy.  I will have to investigate further.  Looks like a good idea.

We do it both ways with the eggs. Some people like them scrambled, others will crack a whole egg right in and then cook it.

The veggies are usully raw and cut or cubed to cook faster.

You spray the pie iron with Pam and pre-heat it, Then, spread out biscuit or crescant roll on one side. Put your fillings in, and cover with other crescant or biscuit. Hold over coals until browned. You can alo use regular slices of bread, buttered on one side instead of rolls for other sndwiches.

We use rye, swiss, kraut, dressing, and corned beef for a killer Reuben pie iron sandwich.

Uhm yes. I would like to put in my order for a "pie iron rueben" please.


Steve pretty much covered it. Only thing would add, because I hate "ass u me". When you are cooking make sure you rotate it often keeping a close eye on when it is nice and brown on both sides, but has had anough time to cook all the way thru. Dont ask me how I know this, but I will tell you I have been trained by some of the best.

We were at Cabelas this weekend and picked up a Pie Iron how to book. We didnt get the irons yet, but were surprised at how many different ones there were. Burger irons, square irons, round irons, panini irons... they got em all!

I am watching this very closley.... We have been kicking the idea around for awhile now, especially since the little kiddo's are older (5/6) and dont want/need mac and cheese for every meal. I was told that you can make a pretty cool pizza pocket thingy, which I'm sure the kids will enjoy making as much as eating....plus, you cant beat the clean up!
