The tater tots make the perfect potato base for this dish and we often add bacon or ham.  You can use a variety of cheese too of course, the kids love processed Kraft cheese slices the best.

Tips for cooking with a pie iron

  • When cooking with a camp cooker, begin by applying non stick cooking spray or oil to the inside of both cooking plates.   This step is important so that your delicious meal doesn’t stick to the plates and burn.
  • Place your recipe ingredients into the cooker before closing and latching it.
  • Cook the recipe over an open fire. We recommend placing the cooker over the fire for two minutes before unlatching, checking for doneness and flipping the cooker over to cook the other side.
  • Use caution when handling both the metal latch and handles as they can become hot while cooking.
