Recipes: Pizza and Chocolate Covered Cherry Mag Pies (aka Hobo Pies)

I love to camp…I know I have said that time and time again :)  Every summer since I was about 5 years old we drive to Up North Michigan with my whole family and we have a wonderful time.  Sand, beach, boats, great food, wineries, it is one of my favorite places in the whole world!  Now that I live in FL, I still make the drive to MI every summer for this trip.  I just can’t imagine ever missing it – it is a part of my soul and now I get to pass that wonderful feeling onto my kids!

Anyways….One of my favorite foods while camping is Mag Pies!  Some people call these Hobo Pies – they are the same – my family just calls them Mag Pies…There are sooooo many ways to make a Mag Pie and each year we get more and more creative with what we put in between those 2 pieces of sandwich bread.  So, for this week’s recipe idea – I thought I would share two of my favorites!

Pizza Mag Pie

What You Need:
2 Slices of Bread
Butter
Anything you want on your pizza!!
I like pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, and some ham

What You Do:
Butter each side of your Mag Pie so the bread doesn’t stick
Place one slice of bread on one side – fill it up with your ingredients!
Place the other piece of bread on top
Close the Mag Pie Maker
Cook on the fire – be sure to flip regularly and make sure you don’t burn it – I like to cook mine nice and slow so that the insides are SUPER hot…While, some of my family members like to cook it fast so the outside is crispy and the inside is just warm.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Mag Pie -

What You Need:
2 slices of bread
Butter
Cherry Pie Filling
5 pieces of Hershey’s chocolate – the bars from the candy bar (I think 6 is too many – trust me – I have tried all combinations!)
1/2 marshmallow (again – I have tried lots of combos – I personally like this one)

What You Do:
Butter each side of your Mag Pie so the bread doesn’t stick
Place one slice of bread on one side
I put cherry filling in first – then break apart the marshmallow and scatter it around the filling
Take the chocolate pieces and scatter them around as well – so that they melt evenly
Place the other piece of bread on top
Close the Mag Pie Maker

Cook on the fire – be sure to flip regularly and make sure you don’t burn it – I like to cook mine nice and slow so that the insides are SUPER hot…While, some of my family members like to cook it fast so the outside is crispy and the inside is just warm.

*If you don’t have access to a fire pit – you can also make a home version by grabbing a Sandwich maker next time you are at your favorite Super store (I have seen them at Target)

Have Fun!
