Pie Iron Sloppy Joes

We spent the night camping and used the pie iron for all of our meals. It was glorious. You can make just about anything in a pie iron we made Omelets for breakfast, these delicious sloppy joes for dinner and a cherry cream cheese pie for dessert.

Pie Iron Sloppy Joes

We love using a pie iron for multiple reasons: there is rarely any difficult clean up, everyone can use them and they make easy, handheld meals. It’s not very often that you think of making a Philly Cheesesteak when camping, but with a pie iron that is an easy meal.

Pie Iron Sloppy Joes

These pie iron sloppy joes went over well with the whole family. By adding a little cheese to the mix you’re able to get the sloppy joes to easily melt together and stick. To make things really easy at the campsite, I made the sloppy joes ahead of time and put them in a container. Below is the recipe for the sloppy joes, you can also use a sloppy joe mix like Manwich.
