I love hobo pies. What is a hobo pie you ask? It’s a simple item using the basic ingredients of any good meal. Two slices of white bread, and the toppings filling of your choice.

I have written about pie irons before and they are among the most versatile and simple meal makers a camper can have in their repertoire. So for this little bite to eat the process follows.


  • 2 Slices White Bread (Use different bread for different flavors.)
  • 1 Can Fruit Filling of Your Choice
  • 1 Stick Butter
  • Pie Irons
  • Cooking Spray


Spray your pie iron on both sides. Butter each slice of bread and place one in the pie iron. Spoon fruit filling onto the slice of bread in the pie iron. Place the other slice of bread over the filling butter side up. Carefully close the pie iron making sure the bread doesn’t shift too far to the side.

Place pie iron on your the hot coals. Cook for 5-10 minutes depending on your fire rotating every minute to cook evenly.

When they are done open the pie iron, place on serving dish and enjoy. Be careful as they will be extremely hot!
