Easy, Delicious Cast-Iron Skillet Recipes with more than 20 recipes to Make You Fall in Love With Cast Iron
Cast iron excels in preparations that require you to maintain a high temperature. It often takes a while to get hot, but once you get it there, it stays hot, making it ideal for searing steaks, charring vegetables, or even making pizza. But it's also more versatile than that, which is why I use my own cast iron cookware for just about everything, including sautéing vegetables and baking bread.
we love how easy cast iron goes from oven to table with weeknight favorites including Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole and King Ranch Mac and Cheese.
Having a few quick dinner recipes in your back pocket is always a good thing. But even better are the recipes that don't use multiple bowls and pans, allowing you to cut down on prep time and dishes. This is why I love a good skillet recipe.
Some of these recipes require cooking pasta or another ingredient before adding everything to the skillet, so they're not all one-pan recipes, but there's something really satisfying about cooking and serving dinner in a skillet — and often, depending on the dish, food actually tastes better when cooked in cast iron (I love the way chicken gets nice and crisp in our skillet).
This list features something for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike, with seasonal fare like Broiled Shrimp with Fresh Tomatoes or good any-time dishes like a creamy mac and cheese. Enjoy!
