Q: In the Midwest, a 'pudgy pie' is a popular camping food. They are generally made in pie irons, which are often cast iron gadgets with long handles. We'd love to try making them at home, but I can't find an appropriate gadget to do this. It seems pie irons are only a camping tool. Any ideas for how to find or DIY a pie iron for indoor use?

I've successfully made braaibroodjie (a South African outdoor-grilled sandwich) indoors with the help of a grill pan and a pot lid, which might work for pudgy pies as well. This post has a photo and details about the method:
Readers, do you have any suggestions for making pudgy pies indoors?
