These Cast-Iron Recipes Will Take You From Breakfast to Dessert
If you own a cast-iron skillet, you adore it. If you don’t own a cast-iron skillet, we suggest you buy one immediately. A well-seasoned cast-iron skillet is the key to some of our best recipes, and we’ve got proof that you can use it to make breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. When cooking with cast-iron, you can make recipes on the stovetop, in the oven, and even on the grill. There’s nothing better than a one-pot meal to minimize cleanup time, and these recipes are to die for. With cast-iron skillet breakfast recipes like potato bacon hash and our biggest cinnamon roll ever, you can satisfy savory and sweet cravings. When baking cast-iron skillet desserts, you get a browned crust and a soft, tender center, and we think that any warm cast-iron skillet dessert is best served with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream. Be sure your cast-iron skillet is properly seasoned, because you’ll want to use it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert with these incredible recipes.
