Waking Up With a Grin and a Grill:
Wakey, Wakey, Grilled Eggs, and Bakey: Egg Bake Recipe
Is there a better way to wake up a few sleepy heads than with the aroma of grilled eggs and bacon? We think not. It’s a classic dish that can rarely go wrong. Everyone will say yes to this yummy Egg Bake breakfast!
To enhance the aroma and make this dish more mouth-watering, add your bacon and sausage to the grill. While your meat is searing, you can get your mushrooms and onions going in your cast iron skillet. And once your veggies are brown, crack a few eggs over them.
Once the eggs are cooked to your liking, sprinkle the bacon, sausage, and some cheese over the dish. And, voilà, watch as your family stumble out from the tent or out of the house one by one in search of the source of the mouth-watering aroma.
Serving Lunch in Your Cast Iron Skillet
For the Seafood Lovers: Seafood Paella Recipe
Seafood is a decadency you either tolerate or can’t live without — there is no in-between. Paella is the perfect combination of two cultures from Spain: the Romans who brought the pan, and the Arabians who brought the rice.
The term ‘Paella’ most commonly translates into the word ‘pan.’ However, an old story claims the Moorish kings’ servants created rice dishes by mixing the leftovers from royal banquets and taking them home. Therefore, ‘Paella’ also originates from the Arab word ‘baqiyah,’ which means ‘leftovers.’
Our Seafood Paella is one of our favorite cast iron skillet recipes, because who doesn’t love the taste of the ocean’s best, grilled over the open fire? And we’re confident there won’t be any leftovers after your guests have had a taste of this dish!
Something On The Side: Roasted Sweet Potato and Kale Salad Recipe
A little somethin’ on the side never hurt anybody! It makes the main dish that much more delectable. And let’s face it, the plain old cucumber, lettuce, and tomato salad is old news. Grilled salads for the win!
And don’t skip this recipe, thinking that grilling your salad may take longer than whipping up some greens in a bowl. You can chop up all the ingredients, grill it to perfection and serve it straight out of your cast iron skillet in no time.
Try our Roasted Sweet Potato and Kale Salad for a delicious and exciting take on a side dish.
Fine Dining With Your Cast Iron Skillet
Melt Off The Bone: Cast Iron Ribeye Recipe
There’s no better evening meal than a juicy one, slathered in garlic, butter, and rosemary. Our Cast Iron Ribeyes will tend to all your carnivorous cravings with just one bite. However, with this dish, you have to allow your cast iron skillet to heat up for a good five minutes before starting the cooking process.
Once your cast iron skillet is nice and hot, add your ribeye steaks to get a nice crust on the first side. Then, using the KUDU Grill elevation bars, move your pan higher up (to a medium heat range), so you can start cooking it to tender perfection.
The Sweetest Crunch: Cast Iron Apple Pie Recipe
Making apple pie in a cast iron skillet is as simple as layering it as you would in your oven dish. Only, it’ll taste way better thanks to the natural heat of the open fire.
Our Cast Iron Apple Pie will have you biting into a warm, sweet and crunchy treat, and you’ll probably never make dessert pie in your oven ever again. Add some whipped- or ice cream on the side to complete your day of delicious grilling.
