Pie Iron Hot Dog

Quick and easy lunch to cook over the fire this pie iron hot dog has two kinds of cheese and two sauces.

The cheeses are American (which can be exchanged with cheddar) and mozzarella. One provides taste and the other a gooey melted texture. When cooked slowly over coals these melt to bind the sandwich together.

Perfect idea for a simple lunch with kids as it adds a new spin to an old family favorite. Great start to learning to cook over the fire.

Ingredients

8 slices of bread

mustard

ketchup (tomato sauce)

1 slice American cheddar

1 slice mozzarella

8 hot dogs

Equipment

pie iron

Recipe Directions

  1. Layout the 8 slices of bread, spread half with ketchup and half with mustard.

  2. Place a slice of American cheese on the mustard slice of bread and mozzarella cheese on the mustard slice of bread.

  3. Cut the hot dog in half longways so thinner and quicker to heat/cook. Cut in half to shorten. 

  4. Place the hotdog evenly on the mozzarella cheese, then close the sandwich with the American cheese.

  5. Place one sandwich in a pie iron, close, and clip shut. Place over a campfire’s coals and cook for 10 minutes, turning every 2 minutes to make sure it heats through.

    Tip: If cooking with kids, consider preheating the hotdogs then the kids have less pressure to heat the hotdogs, but just brown the bread and melt the cheese.

  6. Crack open the pie iron to see if the bread is browned, if not close and continue cooking until done. Once done turn out onto a plate and let cool for 5 minutes (especially cheese).
