Ham and Pineapple Pie Iron Sandwich

Looking down onto an untoasted ham and pineapple sandwich, cut in half, on a black camping plate on a picnic table with the pie iron next to the plate.

Very similar to a Hawaiian pizza, this classic ham and pineapple sandwich is toasted in a pie iron over the coals. It is cheesy, sweet, and savory all at the same time, and a hit with kids and adults alike. This sandwich can be served for lunch or dinner. 

None of the ingredients in this recipe need to be cooked and could actually be eaten as a normal sandwich. This makes it an ideal choice for cooking with children who may not have the skill or patience to cook over a campfire, but are excited at the novelty and idea of cooking their own meal.

The basic concept can be stepped-up for the adult. Choose a high-quality classic or smoked ham, or reach for fancier cheese. Save a bit of the pizza sauce on the side for dipping, if you like.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices bread
  • pizza sauce
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheese
  • 3 ham slices
  • 1/4 pineapple pieces

Equipment

  • pie iron

Directions

  • Place the two pieces of bread on a chopping board and spread pizza sauce on both of them.
  • Sprinkle the sauce with the cheese, dividing evenly between the two slices.
  • On one of the slices add the ham and pineapple.
  • Close the other slice of bread on top so there is pizza sauce and cheese on both sides of the ham and pineapple.
  • Place the sandwich in the pie iron and close. Cook over the coals of the campfire for about 10 minutes, turning regularly, so as to not burn the outside, and cook all the way through.
