Cast iron skillets are perfect for cooking breakfast for several reasons. For one, using only one pan for your entire morning meal is an ideal scenario if you’d like to keep the washing up to a minimum. They can hold a large amount of ingredients and can travel from stovetop to the oven. Not to mention, cast iron skillets are pretty easy to clean, as long as you don’t let your dirty pan sit out for hours after cooking.
You can rely on a cast iron skillet’s sturdiness and heating capabilities when looking for that perfect crisp to your hash browns, casseroles, and sausages. Because a cast iron skillet holds heat very well, it will guarantee even cooking with even the thickest pancakes or frittatas. Just make sure you give it a chance to preheat well. You can do that on the stove by leaving it over medium heat for at least ten minutes and rotating it to avoid isolated hot spots, or by placing it in a preheated oven.
