Here is a fun pie iron recipe inspired by the classic Reuben sandwich that is made over a campfire. These individual sandwiches can be customized for each person.
Recently we went to a camping rally. The campground was full, so we ended up squatting on someone’s campsite. We became fast friends with these people and they share some of their favorite camping recipes with us. The first one I want to share is their grilled Reuben sandwich made in a pie iron. I never fancied Reubens before, but I love them now!
Campfire Reuben Sandwich Recipe
This recipe is made with the traditional items found in a Reuben sandwich, plus a few added ingredients.
Here is the step by step process shown in photos.
I have to admit that we have not used our pie irons very much. In fact, we’ve only made pies in them. I learned how versatile they are, so I am going to be preparing more food in them as we camp this summer. Have you ever made anything in a pie iron?
I want to thank Christina & Sean for allowing us to take over their campsite, sharing many food ideas, and letting me take photos of their food to post.
