It's so good, you're going to want to double the recipe.” - Kitchen Crew

Oh, and call it whatever you want, your guests won’t care!”- Marie

Serve this skillet alongside eggs and you have an easy to make hearty breakfast.” - Kitchen Crew

Make it your own and enjoy.” - Cecelia

Baked Custard Pancake

Baked Custard Pancake

“This pancake is so good. In fact, it is more like a custard than cake and a wonderful breakfast delight. It puffs up nicely in the oven and then as you let it set, it absorbs all of the butter, sugar, and cinnamon that is on the bottom layer. You can sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top, or even a drizzle of honey or syrup but, I find this wonderfully sweet (although not overpowering) as it is and really does not need it.” - Barbara
Grandma's Unbreaded Fried Chicken

Grandma's Unbreaded Fried Chicken

Roasted Potatoes With Bacon

Roasted Potatoes With Bacon

“This is one of those dishes that are made phenomenal by using cast iron. I make this frequently every winter and find it is awesome for any meal. You will find that amounts will need to be adjusted as the size of the skillet and potatoes changes. We add variations all the time, jalapeños, onions, sweet peppers, to name a few. We also change up the spices, chili powder, seasoned salt, rosemary, basil.” - Joy
Hatch Green Chili Sauce

Hatch Green Chili Sauce
