Cast-Iron Cooking: 7 Scrumptious Skillet Recipes
In the cookware world, the cast-iron skillet is renowned for its versatility. Every meal between breakfast and dessert can be prepared in one, and it lasts for ages when properly cared for. It is a nonstick pan, and unlike traditional cookware options, the older it is, the better it gets. You can use your skillet in the oven, on the stovetop, and even over an open fire. There are no recipes calling for fire pits here, but we do have seven skillet worthy dishes for you to create at home.
1. Indoor S’mores
Dessert for Two made s’mores indoors in a six-inch cast-iron skillet. How many servings and the total amount of ingredients needed will vary based on skillet size. You’ll want to fill the bottom of the skillet with chocolate chips.
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 8 large marshmallows
- Graham crackers for dipping
Directions: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. In a cast iron skillet, add the chocolate chips. Snip the large marshmallows in half and top the chocolate chips with them. (You could also use a scoop of mini marshmallows alternatively.) Once the oven is up to temperature, add the skillet to the oven. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until the marshmallows turn golden brown. Serve with graham crackers for scooping.
