And then I remembered something we used to make on the fire at Girl Scout Camp. Day Camp was famous for using government surplus food (am I giving away my age?). One of my favorite lunches involved Spam, surplus cheese, and pineapple chunks all mixed together and put into a hot dog bun. It was wrapped in foil and then put on the grill over the campfire. I've looked everywhere for a recipe for this since I'm not sure this was all that was in that bun chocked full of deliciousness. But no recipe has been found. (This recipe comes close.) I'm sure gonna give it a try.
So, suddenly the Father's Day campfire has become a "Mountain Man Pie Smorgasbord". I'll set out some loaves of bread (the cheapest seems to work the best), some of the above fixin's, and butter. And let the party begin. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Do you have any other ideas for some great "Pies"?
