Recently, I was reading a fascinating post by Zumalicious in which she talked about her thrill at finding a new skillet with a metal handle at a rational price. What's the big deal about a skillet with a metal handle, you ask? It can be used both on top of the stove as well as in the oven and under the broiler. Skillets with plastic handles, like inexperienced skilleteers,* can't take the heat.
So with this conversation in mind, I am issuing an Open Call to all you foodies out there in OS land for recipes using a skillet with a metal handle. (See my fabulous illustrative photo above.) Cast iron, stainless steel, aluminum, hard anodized, mess kit, the type of skillet matters not. Recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and everything in between are open for interpretation.
Tag your post "skilleteers" as well as "foodie" and "foodie tuesday" for good measure. Remember that you must use a metal-handled skillet. And please, please, please be careful not to burn your hand when taking your pan from the oven!
Have a great time with this. I'm looking forward to reading what I anticipate will be great submissions!
*Skilleteers have a certain kinship with both Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers and Willa Cather's O Pioneers! in that the true skilleteer will have both a certain dash and debonair charm as well as being open to exploring new frontiers of taste unveiled in recipes that feature the skillet as the main cooking vessel.
And here are the answers to my Open Call! I'll try to update this list as I find them. If you've posted a Skilleteer recipe today, please PM me and I'll add it.
