Fireside Pies

Kim Biegacki


I thought I would post this recipe for a group that I joined on "Just a Pinch" called "Camping Recipes and Ways you Can Cook Them".

This is Camp Debelak (my parents camp) in Cooks Forest, PA and is very woodsy and beautiful there. The whole family enjoys their time camping. Especially the grandkids love to spend time with Papa hunting, fishing and sitting around the fire. This is the late night snacks everyone gets if they want one & of course they do!
It is so wonderful to sit around the fire listening to it crackle and watching the fire burn. It is so beautiful and mesmerizing at the same time. I grew camping with my grandparents in Summersville, WVA and some camping sites in Pennsylvania too. My Grandpa used to cook all kinds of things over the fire and tell scary stories to all the children. Those were some really memorable days!!! I am so very thankful to God that my parents have a camp that they can go to and spend time with their grandchildren. Memories that will last forever!!! I hope you enjoy this recipe. Kim

I posted several pics of the fireside pies and them being cooked over the fire. Look below the fire for the small pics you can click on and they will become the large pic for you to see. I couldn't resist a pic of the fire itself. :-)

How to Make Fireside Pies


  1. Need one good camp fire.
  2. For as many as you would like to serve, butter bread on one side. Then, begin filling your breads. For fruit pies use your jellies and for your pizza pies use your pepperoni and cheese. You can be creative and make any sandwich you want.
  3. These are the sammies that my Dad makes for the adults and kids at camp.
  4. He loves making them for everyone and helping make smores too.
  5. (The Hobo cast-iron pie iron can be bought online at Cabela's if you cannot find it in a hardware store.)
