A Pie Iron will Fry, Grill, Bake, Toast and Braise.

When the Pie Iron is open, place a slice of buttered bread in one side of the iron with the buttered side facing down or outward. The filling can be anything you like, but cheese is the best choice if you are new to pie iron cooking. The cheese should be centered within the edges of the bread, then topped off with another slice of buttered bread facing up. Finally, the two sides of the pie iron are joined together, closed and latched. When using a round pie iron, allow the bread or pie crust to hang over the edge. Add your filling to the center of the bread. Closing the pie iron crimps the bread or pie crust creating a nice neat little round treat. The excess bread or pie crust should be trimmed prior cooking.

The pie iron is now ready for heating, hold it over a camp fire or prop it up over a bed of coals for cooking. The sandwich takes about 4 to 6 minutes to toast, turning periodically. The pie iron can also be used on a camp stove, home stove, in a fireplace or in the back yard barbecue grill.

The basic instructions for making a fruit pie is the same as a toasted sandwich. Place one piece of pie dough in the pie iron with the buttered or lightly oiled side down. Add your favorite pie filling or preserves. Cover with another piece of pie crust, the buttered or lightly oil side up. Close and latch and your ready to go.
