NEI

Thats the opposite of TMI. Not Enough Info!

I'm sure there is something absolutely delicious inside what looks like wonderful grilled cheese sandwiches (a personal favorite).

Would like to know more about these Mountain Pies :)

@O C @KismetKamado They basically are grilled cheese sandwiches.  You butter the outside of the bread and put anything you want between the bread.  One nice thing is, as the cook, they get sealed shut, so whatever is between the bread doesn’t leak out.  For instance, ham and baked beans... they get sealed inside and you get an awesome little meal all in one Sammy.  For dessert, you can put some cherry pie filling in one.  Be warned, they get super hot, so let them cool a bit for biting in if you are doing a liquid filling like baked beans or pie filling.

@O C @KismetKamado, I think Bgosnell151 pretty much explained what they are.  You have to have a mountain pie maker, and we usually just spray the iron with Pam, or canola oil.  There are literally a hundred different ways you can go from there, there are  books with dozens of different variations of the pies.  We usually grill onions, mushrooms and chicken before hand, and brown some hamburger on the stove. Home made canned sausage is the bomb, that doesn't have to be cooked, just sliced.  Add home made pizza sauce to both pieces of bread, add chicken, sausage or beef, add  grilled mushrooms, onions, black olives and cheese. No matter how you make it, finish with a few pepperonis.  Place mountain pie maker right on the glowing coals.  Flip frequently, opening maker just a little to check the bread.  When it is nice and toasty, dump them out on a plate, LET COOL FOR A MINUTE OR TWO, and dive it.  They are great party food.  If you can round up several pie makers, we usually have a sideboard with all the fixings on.  Guest assemble pie to there liking, then toast and eat.  It is a lot of fun, and they are scrumptious.    I second Bgosnell151 remark about the fruit desert pies,  topping way to finish off the evening.

Excellent! I've never thought about putting meat in them, but now I'll give it a try. We do this with pb&j sandwiches for the kids fairly often when we're at the camper, we call them hobo pies though. Regardless of the name they're great and we prefer them over smores when camping. I'll have to give it a try with meat, etc.

Thanks @Shortyque. I didn't even know 'mountain pie maker' was a thing! I now have one in my amazon cart. My sister-in-law frequently hosts family potlucks that include a bonfire, I think this will be a fun and much appreciated addition to our evenings!!
