I had a 2d cousin (deceased) in Akron, Ohio that used to make what he called
"Cookin' Irons" that were distributed in camping stores. One type was
shaped to accomodate two hotdogs. Another shaped for sandwich bread.
Another was shaped for pies (round). Still another was diamond shaped for
waffles, thin cornbread, etc. My collection is now about thirty years old
and still in service right next to the fire place. They've been used to
make thin cakes, meat pies, fruit pies, cheese sandwiches, pizza, game
pies, waffles, pancakes, and just about anything a very minature oven
could make. We've even made banana deserts using quartered bananas
with cinamon and sugar in the hotdog iron. About the only thing we haven't
had much luck with is popcorn. Thinly sliced potatoes, onions, carrots and
ground beef mixed and formed into the hotdog iron is the best on a cold day
around the campfire.
