8 Pudgy Pie Recipes

Camping and camp fires go together.
Here in the North Woods,
Outdoor Cooking and Pudgy Pies go together too~
Making pudgy pies using a pie iron is fun, easy, versatile and
a delicious way to make meals outdoors.
Your kids will love these "pies" and
they'll have fun helping you make them and eat them...
You can make pudgy pies for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.


A pie iron, a.k.a. pudgy pie maker,
is an extremely versatile tool to use for cooking over an open fire.
Meal options using a pie iron are endless.
With a little creativity,
you can make just about anything with a pie iron.
The most important thing to remember is to butter your bread well...
especially the side that will be placed against the inside of the pie iron or
spray the inside of your pie iron well with non-stick cooking spray.
 *Caution:
Do not spray your pie iron near the fire or spray the non-stick cooking spray towards the fire,
contents can explode and the non-stick cooking stream can catch fire.
