9 Easy Cast Iron Recipes To Make Every Meal Taste Better

From morning to late night snacks, cast iron makes every dish taste amazing.

Not only will Lodge cast iron last generations, the versatile line of durable cookware can be your go-to tool for easy family cooking any time of day.

Let’s take a look at our favourite recipes to cook your way through the day using cast iron.

Breakfast: Savoury vs. sweet



Want to get your day off to a sizzling start? We love this Lodge recipe for Huevos Rancheros, which uses the Pro Logic reversible grill pan to get an evenly cooked breakfast every time.

We also love including key ingredients like the base of corn tortillas and a squeeze of fresh lime to top it off. (You can even try making your own corn tortillas with their recipe here.)

If you’re looking for a sweeter kind of morning meal, you’re definitely going to want to try this Ricotta Berry French Toast Casserole.

Lunch: Healthy, tasty, easy



Everyone is cauliflower-obsessed lately, and why not? You can swap cauliflower into your favourite dishes for an instant healthy factor, without sacrificing flavour.

Try this Skillet Cauliflower-Feta Pizza from Lodge using their cast iron pizza pan for easy cooking with incredible flavour.

Another amazing option for a healthy seasonal lunch is this One-Skillet Roasted Butternut Squash with Spiced Chickpeas dish.



Butternut squash is so good this time of year, and with some chickpeas for added protein, this would be a delicious lunch or a fantastic side at dinnertime.

Dinner: Will it be the beef or the chicken?



There’s nothing like a good burger for dinner, and this recipe with a Philly Cheesesteak twist takes it to the next level. Use a classic 12″ Lodge cast iron skillet to get your burgers, peppers and onions perfectly seasoned.

Looking for another fall classic to try in your cast iron? This recipe for Easy Skillet Chicken Pot Pie will be a crowd-pleaser for the whole family.

We also love their trick of starting with store-bought dough to make it a quick dinner when you’re pressed for time.

Desserts: Berries, chocolate or pumpkin, oh my!



Harvest delicious seasonal berries and turn them into the perfect sweet treat this fall using this Lodge recipe for a Rustic Berry Skillet Galette. Fresh, fruity and flaky, this pastry could even double as breakfast.

Is chocolate the way you’d like to end a meal? We LOVE this Chocolate-Hazelnut Skillet Cake from Rachael Ray.

With just a few ingredients and a baking time under 20 minutes, this cake is almost dangerously easy to make.

Speaking of easy, we had to include a pumpkin-based dessert recipe this time of year.



This two-ingredient (!!) recipe for Pumpkin Gingerbread is what you’ll be hooked on all season long. Plus, you can even freeze it to make it quite possibly the easiest treat around.
