The author of Will It Waffle? is back! This time, he’s serving up 53 creative, original recipes for the cast-iron skillet. It’s another ode to a common kitchen tool, championing all of the convenience and charm of one-pan cooking. But wait—this isn’t your run-of-the-mill book of skillet cooking! Instead, the innovative recipes will stretch the limits of what you once thought was possible, with creative delights from Eggs in a Basket to Bacon Potato Skillet Bread, from Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies to Gnocchi with Goat Cheese and Roasted Tomatoes to Pizza Dip (no crust, just serve this cheesy goodness with a baguette!). As clever as they may be, these recipes are not just a gimmick—they also capitalise on the technical strengths of the cast-iron skillet, using, for example, cast-iron’s high heat searing power to transform shredded brussels sprouts into crunchy, sweetly caramelised flakes, and taking advantage of the stovetop-to-oven versatility for dishes like Chicken Pot Pie, Spinach and Feta Dip, and Tortilla Espanola. The skillet is an effective substitute for the char of the grill (Grilled Vegetable and Cheddar Nachos), a replacement for a cake pan (Chocolate Cake), or a stand-in for specialty equipment like the wok (Peanut and Tofu Stir-fry), or the paella pan (Seafood Paella, of course).
