Early morning, WildSnow Field HQ.

Backcountry skiing certainly burns calories and builds up an appetite. We enjoy experimenting with camp cooking at WildSnow HQ so it was a special treat when a friend gave us a Rome’s Pie Iron.

At our friend’s suggestion, we filled the pie iron with buttered bread and blueberry pie filling and cooked it over the coals in our wood stove until golden brown. It was indeed tasty. For lunch the pie iron turned our limp ham and cheese sandwiches into melted toasty goodness. Next trip I’ll bring eggs to make breakfast sandwiches. Thanks George!

    The only thing better than a pie iron is a double pie iron. For the sake of harmony and efficiency – get one!

    Jim, we might just do that. Happy Holidays!

    Try any leftovers in the pie iron as a grilled sandwich. I have heated up fajitas, sloppy joes and any sandwich meat with cheese. Glad you enjoyed the blueberry pies.
