As I mentioned a few weeks back I was planning on purchasing a cast iron skillet. There were numerous recommendations and tips that I was going to mull over and make my decision. Well, my sweetie kind of got ahead of me and I am very excited to now be the owner of a Lodge pre-seasoned 12" cast iron skillet with lid!

Oh, and the red thing on the handle is a silicone handle cover that came with it.

Considering how awesome my Lodge Dutch oven has turned out to be, I am fairly confident in the Lodge brand. So, now that I have this new addition to my kitchen equipment, I want to ask you all for suggestions as to what to cook in it! I have read lots about the care of my cast iron so what I'm looking for is recipes. I've used it once already: I gave it a good wipe down with a greased paper towel and made grilled swiss & turkey pastrami. It gave me a chance to gage how long it takes to heat up and how long it holds the heat etc. But that was it.

So, without further ado:

WFD folks, what is your favorite thing to cook in a cast iron skillet?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
