25 Easy Pie Iron Recipes

1. Camper’s Dream Pies

These are lovely and flaky with a buttery crust.

They’re full of amazing flavors, and they’re such good options for camping.

The filling is made with meatballs, dry beans, onion soup mix, sour cream, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and more.

It’s so thick that you can add it to a Crockpot (or the morning before) and let it cook all day.

2. S’mores Pudgy Pies

Let me get this straight: you take a classic dessert like marshmallows and slather them in chocolate?

I’m not quite sure how I feel about it – but then again, maybe I’m just biased.

Either way, these pudgy pies are spectacular.

What makes them impressive is their combination of sweet, salty, crunchy, and gooey.

Serve them with some whipped cream on top for the ultimate treat.

3. Campfire Pie Iron Quesadillas

If you’re out on the grill, these campfire pie iron quesadillas are a fun way to serve up a tasty dinner.

There’s no need to worry about cooking over an open fire.

These quesadillas can be prepared in just five minutes using your trusty cast-iron skillet.

I like to add some grated cheese and some chopped onions for a little saltiness.

Finish with salsa and enjoy!

4. Pie Iron French Toast

One of my favorite ways to make french toast is with a piece of pie iron.

I like to use this fancy version that looks just like a French oven.

It’s got more copper in the pan and has a decorative handle on top to make it look more sophisticated.

You can even add some fresh fruit or whipped cream if you want.

Either way, this recipe is so good, you won’t believe it came from the kitchen!

5. Cherry Mountain Pie Recipe (Pie Iron Cherry Pies)

Cherry mountain pie is a scrumptious twist on traditional cherry pie.

It features cherry pies, brown sugar-cinnamon biscuits, and vanilla ice cream.

The crust on the bottom is thin and crispy while the top is soft and buttery.

This pie is covered in a thick layer of whipped cream and garnished with fresh cherries.

It’s creamy, sweet, tart, and super delicious.

6. Pudgie Pie Tasty Tacos (Pie Iron)

These are the perfect mini-pudgies.

I think they’re totally diabolical, and you should try them.

The filling is a mixture of ground turkey, corn, green chiles, cheddar cheese, tomato sauce, and butter.

It’s sweet and cheesy but not too much that it will make your head spin.

When you’ve added all the ingredients to a baking dish (the recipe suggests using pie iron), bake for about 30 minutes.

Remove from oven when the edges start to turn brown.

Then flip your tacos over and cover with more cheese.

Bake another 10 minutes.


7. Pie Iron Pizza Pockets

These pizza puffs are absolutely delicious.

However, the difficult to master dough can be a bit intimidating.

Once you get that first crust going, it’s easier than ever!

The filling is creamy, herby, and loaded with veggies. It’s made using store-bought chicken broth instead of cream cheese.

You can also add a sprinkle of mozzarella and chopped herbs on top after they bake.

8. Pie Iron Apple Pie

You’ll be surprised at how easy apple pie can be to make.

You’ll need apples, sugar, cornstarch, butter, and of course, an apple pie iron!

This recipe uses an 8-inch pie iron for a perfectly cooked apple pie every time.

It also gives you a chance to cook the filling up in the iron before adding it into the pan.

This will help add moisture and keep the filling from sticking too much to the bottom of the crust.

9. Yummy Pie Iron Breakfast Bake

I love a good breakfast bake, especially when it’s packed with all the yummy flavors you could ever want.

This one features sweet and savory maple syrup to take your morning up a notch.

It also features bananas and evaporated milk for some creaminess and rich flavor.

Feel free to add in any other ingredients you like.

I prefer using more mashed potatoes because they give this dish that much more depth.

The best part is, it only takes 30 minutes to make!

10. Pie Iron Philly Cheesesteak

This pie iron Philly cheesesteak is the ultimate comfort food.

It’s a mix of steak, Italian sausage, and melted cheese.

It’s super filling, but you can adjust the recipe to make it vegan-friendly with Daiya cheese slices or your favorite vegan option.

Either way, don’t forget the sauce!

The sauce is made with ketchup, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper.

11. Cast Iron Pan Apple Pie

Sometimes I make apple pie from scratch, but other times, I use frozen fruit.

Either way, it’s always a hit.

This recipe makes the perfect combo of cinnamon and graham cracker crust and tart apples with a buttery crumble topping.

The only downside to this is that you can’t just grab an old pan and make one for breakfast!

12. Pie Iron Cherry Cream Cheese Pie

I have to admit that I love cherry pie more than any other pie.

It’s bright, sweet, and packed with little bursts of tartness.

The filling is super creamy (you can add in some heavy cream if you want), so it needs less sugar than a normal cherry recipe.

Plus, the cherries are already frozen, making them even better.

This is no longer just a simple cherry cobbler.

This pie has almost everything you could ever want – cinnamon chips, crumbly shortbread crust, chunks of tart cherries…and then there’s the yummy whipped topping!

You can use whatever kind of whipped topping you like best, but this recipe calls for heavy cream and powdered sugar.


13. Campfire Chocolate Monkey Bread

Sweet and gooey, chocolate monkey bread is a must-have for your next campfire.

This chocolate dessert has all the flavor of a chocolate chip cookie with the added bonus of being baked.

The best part about this recipe is that it’s served hot out of the oven.

Because getting it out of the pan isn’t always ideal!

14. Camp Cooker Pull Apart Garlic Bread

This camp cook is a little different than most, but it’s nothing short of amazing.

The dough is made from scratch and the bread is cooked in a cast iron skillet.

It’s one of those recipes you can make the week before or any time you need something to go with your potluck or BBQ.

It’s also great for cooking ahead and keeping things on hand for when friends come over.

15. Campfire Reuben Recipe

This campfire Reuben is just what you need to warm up on a cold night.

The sauerkraut is the perfect addition to a classic Reuben sandwich.

It gives it an extra layer of richness and tanginess, while also adding some protein.

Plus, I love the flavor combinations in this recipe!

Toss in some sauerkraut and corned beef for some added depth.

16. Mountain Monkey Bread For A Pie Iron

I’ve been on a quest to make the perfect pie iron.

I can’t stand anything scorched around the edges, so I was eager to try this monkey bread.

You start by making a yellow cake mix and using that to make pre-made cinnamon rolls in the oven.

The trick is not to let it cool before stuffing your cake liner with the whole thing.

So you’ll need enough room for it to expand into a big, fluffy ball of bread.

Once that’s done, it needs to bake until golden brown and hot.

This is when you will use your pie iron in place of an over-ripe pineapple or bananas.

As long as your banana or pineapple slices don’t have any crushed nuts or seeds on them, they should come out nice and steaming hot.

17. Camper’s Blueberry Almond Stuffed French Toast

If you’re looking for a quick breakfast that’ll keep you full until lunch, this French toast is perfect.

Top it with almond butter and fresh berries, or serve it as is.

Either way, it will be a hit!

Breakfast for dinner or supper?

It doesn’t matter, because both are delicious.

18. Breakfast Entry: Eggs In A Nest

I’m not sure I can make this one any clearer than I already said – it’s a breakfast for people who like eggs.

Best served with some pancakes or French toast, this dish is ideal for those looking to start their day on the right foot.

All you need are two eggs, butter, milk, and cheese in your food processor.

Then, get out your frying pan and beat it until it’s nice and smooth.

Pour the mixture into a baking dish and top with your choice of toppings.

Bacon, ham, sausage… whatever you like!

19. Pie Iron Breakfast Sandwiches

I know this recipe doesn’t need a picture, but I have to show you my favorite sandwich ever!

This all-butter breakfast is the most wonderful combination of butter, eggs, and bacon.

It’s smothered in cheddar cheese and baked until golden brown.

You may be wondering how something so simple can taste so good.

It has everything from salty cheese to juicy ham to gooey fried egg!

20. Chili Cheese Dog Pudgy Pies

These colorful and addictive pies are the perfect combination of cheesy, spicy, and meaty.

They’re also insanely versatile.

You can stick them on hamburgers or use them as a tasty side dish.

One bite of these pudgy pies won’t be enough.

It’s time to make another batch!

21. Pie Iron Cheesy Tots

This recipe is a staple in my house!

I love the idea of making perfect, homemade tater tots with just ingredients you probably already have.

It’s super easy and takes only 30 minutes to pull together.

Just add a creamy sauce made with cream cheese, sour cream, and Worcestershire sauce to the seasoned taters, then bake until golden brown.

If you want it extra cheesy, try adding some mozzarella or shredded sharp cheddar instead of using an Alfredo sauce.

22. Texas Recipe Workbook

If you want to take the guesswork out of making this tasty and easy-to-make recipe, look no further.

This book outlines all the details needed to make authentic Texas barbecue.

It’s full of tips, tricks, and shortcuts that will help you create the perfect meal at home. And best of all, it’s not complicated!

From smoker recipes to marinades, from grilling recipes to stuffing and breading for chicken, this book has it all.

So don’t be afraid to give it a try! You won’t be disappointed.

23. Pie Iron Tasty Tacos

Here’s another tasty recipe for you to try.

With this dish, you can make taco-like burritos with all the same flavors in a fun and unique way.

There are no markings on the shell, so everyone will get their own taste of it!

The filling is already prepped and ready to go, so there’s no need to worry about prep time. The whole process takes only 10 minutes.

If you love making tacos but hate cooking them, this recipe is definitely worth checking out.

24. Nutella Banana Pie Iron Sandwiches Recipe

I’m all about simple, easy desserts that are also savory, sweet, and delicious.

And that’s exactly what you should expect from these Nutella banana pie sandwiches.

The only thing I might add to this is some chocolate chips or dried raspberries.

That way, they wouldn’t be too sweet but still hold the Nutella flavors well.

You can also use your favorite sandwich bread if you want a thicker crust.

25. Pie Iron Pizza Calzones

This recipe is perfect for those who love pizza but want it to be a little more interesting.

With only seven ingredients, these are simple and delicious.

They’re also incredibly quick, so you can make them whenever you have a few minutes free.

I like to add some mozzarella cheese to mine, too.

But if you’re not a fan of that stuff, just leave it out.
