Today On Parade
In my article for Parade this week-end it’s all about cast iron cooking. I’m featuring a collection of 18 Easy Cast Iron Skillet Meals to add to your weekly dinner rotation. Cast iron skillets are widely considered one of the most prized possessions of Southern cooks. Often skillets are handed down by families as heirlooms and after years of cooking and seasoning the flavor they produce is difficult to top. Cast iron skillets, dutch ovens and casseroles are extremely versatile kitchen tools due to the fact they can go from the stovetop to the oven, placed on the grates of a grill and used for camp-fire cooking. Cast iron skillets are often used for frying since the cast iron naturally holds the heat more effectively and it’s the perfect depth for Southern favorites like fried chicken. The hot oil seasons the pan while frying too, so it’s a win-win situation. Their versatility goes far beyond frying as you’ll see in this collection of easy cast iron skillet and casserole meals. They’re sure to have you reaching for that beloved hand-me-down skillet on a regular basis. See the article with recipe links here on Parade.
