From deep dish pizza to Tex Mex fajitas, pork chops, side dishes and casseroles, some family dinners are just better made in a skillet. This list contains some of my favorite easy skillet recipes, plus all my skillet essentials- the best skillets to use, cast iron skillet care and convenient storage.
There’s nothing quite like cooking in a cast iron skillet. For many of us, our skillets and the recipes we craft in them have been passed down from one family member to the next. We cherish them. But not just because of where they came from, but also because of what they can do.
A good skillet is the quintessential work horse of any good Southern kitchen. It’s perfect for creating one pan meals, and nothing can crisp, fry, bake, sear or sauté quite like it.
So let’s fire up those skillets and enjoy delicious one dish meals, savory dinner pies, side dishes and desserts.
