Over on Instagram and Facebook we shared about a new pie iron recipe we tried last week: chicken pot pies. I found the recipe on 50Campfires.com. Since it was our first time making it, I didn’t make any modifications, but Jarrett and I were talking about some variations we would like to experiment with in the future.
The ingredient list includes easy prep items like canned mixed veggies, crescent rolls, cream of chicken soup, and already cooked chicken strips–so if you need something super simple to pull together, this recipe would be perfect. I’m also thinking my mom’s homemade pot pie filling would work just as well (but would be much easier to prepare at home before the camping trip). So I’ll have to do some experimenting in the future. But our first attempt turned out perfectly and was quite tasty:
Here are a few other variations that Jarrett and I thought would taste great inside a crescent roll pie iron pot pie:
- shredded beef in a brown gravy sauce with provolone cheese;
- ham and cheese;
- scrambled eggs and cheese would make a fun breakfast twist;
- fruit preserves with a sweetened cream cheese would be like a Pillsbury Toaster Strudel!
But in the meantime, full recipe details for the pie iron pot pies can be found here. Enjoy!
