cast iron pan

one of the gifts that i received this holiday season was a pre-seasoned cast iron skillet. i have wanted one for a while, although i have never really used one and didn’t have any particular uses in mind. i have still been learning how to clean it (and found that at least the paper towels we have tend to shred on the surface), but this morning’s breakfast of french toast and bacon turned out really well.

now to find some more recipes to really take advantage of this new toy.


If you get really addicted to your new skillet, you might want to look for an old one to replace it.

Looks like your new cast iron skillet has a rough surface, like all of the new ones I have seen. Older ones had smooth surfaces and work much better. You can often find older ones at flea markets and cheap antique stores.
