A bush bush pie is basically a toasted sandwich cooked in a cast iron pan over a camp fire.  I was introduced to them this summer in Unity, Saskatchewan, whilst visiting family there.

As soon as we got back I hunted out my own bush pie maker (Available at Princess Auto, in case you need to get one!)

It was only right that we make it our own tradition so we decided that baked beans and sausages were the perfect center for our Bush Pies- we just had to add a dash of British in there!

The menu.

Sweet version of the Bush Pie- Blueberry pie filling toasted and then generously sprinkled with icing sugar (powdered sugar)

 Hot chocolate & marshmallows.

Mars Bar S'mores Kit- well it was National Toasted Marshmallow Day so we figured it would be rude not to!
 Marshmallow Jedi's hard at work

It's back to school on Tuesday so this was the perfect weekend activity to close off what has been a very cool summer holidays.  

Hope you had a fabulous summer too?
