Sweet & Savory: 30 Cast Iron Skillet Recipes

by evh on July 31, 2014


I love my cast iron skillets and I use them almost everyday. I love the solid sturdiness and feel of the pan as well as the versatility of taking it from the stovetop to the oven to the table –– they are kind of a big deal and almost celebrity-like in my kitchen. I adore the fact that many people feel the same way about their own skillets (and often times geek out about them with me), and that cast iron cooking is main stream, again. There is rich tradition in the seasoning of the skillet and many people have their own opinions about how it should be handled. Oil or no oil? Water or no water? Salt or no salt? To help you out here is a great explanation (and video) on how to keep your skillet well-seasoned and ready for the next meal:
