Cast Iron Skillet Care and Recipes

Cast Iron Skillets have been a staple in kitchens for many years. I absolutely love mine! You can cook hamburgers, hash browns, desserts and more with cast iron skillets.

I have collected a few smaller ones to take camping with me. They are great to cook on the campfire with.

You take care of your cast iron and keep them seasoned, they will last for years!

We have many sizes of cast iron skillets, corn bread pans, muffin tins, and more in the store.

Below is info on how to care for your cast iron skillets. Save this and refer back as often as needed.

Classic Old Fashioned Meatloaf {Cooked In A Cast Iron Skillet}

Earlier I shared with you how to care for and maintain your cast iron. Today I thought that I would share some wonderful recipes using cast iron.


2 lbs. hamburger
1 cup saltine cracker crumbs (oatmeal or bread crumbs)
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup bell pepper chopped (my addition)
2 eggs
3/4-1 cup evaporated milk (whole milk or half and half)
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground coriander (my addition)
2 cups of water
1 cup ketchup

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 10-inch cast iron skillet with a non stick cooking spray; set aside. In a large bowl, combine all the above ingredients, except for the water and ketchup, and mix together until well blended. Be careful not to handle the meat mixture to much. Shape into a round bun and place in the cast iron skillet. Pour water half way up in the skillet. Bake in the oven for 1 hour or until meatloaf is done. Spoon ketchup over the meatloaf and return to the oven for another 15 minutes.
