Mountain Pies Are Like Savory And Sweet Campfire Paninis
Mountain pies are simple yet ingenious camping treats that involve sandwiching ingredients between two slices of bread and toasting the creation over an open flame.
The magic happens in a mountain pie iron — a handheld, hinged metal contraption that clamps the bread slices together, enclosing the fillings within.
The iron holds everything together while infusing the bread with a hint of smokiness. Set over a campfire, the heat crisps the bread's outer layers while melting the fillings.
Make a breakfast mountain pie with eggs, cheese, and chives. For a sweeter version, consider adding a dollop of Nutella, some marshmallows, cinnamon, or fruit filling.
