While you can buy lobster rolls all over the Maine – and New England, for that matter – you can make your own campsite version with your trusty pie iron. It’s really simple and delicious. If you’re not in lobster country (which most of us aren’t), you can substitute imitation crab meat, but it’s not even close to the real thing.
  • 3-4 oz of lobster meat chunks per sandwich
  • White bread (English Muffin Toasting Bread works best if you can get it)
  • Butter (lots of it)
  • Lemon
  • Mayonnaise
  • Your favorite hot sauce
  • Salt & Pepper
  1. For four sandwiches, melt at least a stick of butter in a pot.
  2. When it’s completely melted, remove from heat and add lobster meat.
  3. Squeeze juice of lemon into the pot, and add a dash or two of hot sauce.
  4. Mix to coat lobster thoroughly with butter, lemon, hot sauce, but don’t over stir to break up the meat too fine.
  5. Generously spread one side of a slice of bread with mayo, and lay it spread side down in pie iron.
  6. Spoon lobster mix on top of bread.
  7. Generously spread another slice of bread with mayo, and lay dry side down on top of lobster.
  8. Attach top half of pie iron and close.
  9. Heat over coals of campfire, grill, or camp stove on low until both sides of bread are toasted a deep golden brown.
  10. Remove the pie from pie iron and enjoy, but be cautious because filling will be hot.
