If you don’t know what a mountain pie is, it is basically a grilled sandwich that is cooked in a small device called a mountain pie maker. A mountain pie maker is like a small skillet with a lid and a long handle. You prepare your sandwich, the same as if you were using a sandwich maker at home, place it in the mountain pie maker and place it in the campfire to cook. The result is truly one of the most delicious and satisfying things you can cook outdoors on a campfire or firepit.
Mountain pie makers can be purchased for between $15 and $50. The one we use and highly recommend is the Rome #1705 cast iron mountain pie maker. It can be purchased from Amazon for $19.99. If you purchase one, I guarantee you that it will become one of your favourite things ever! In fact you’ll probably go on to buy several!
