Do not go out and buy a brand new skillet. Lower quality iron.

Go find an old one at a thrift shop or garage sale. Steal it off the wall of a Cracker Barrel if you have to.



OR just make a ****ing cast and pour molten iron in to it!

OR mine your own iron ore!

Well that's just great. It is entirely too hot out for me to have to spend the whole weekend smelting.

See, I knew this was going to be high maintenance :lol:

Now you guys got me building a damn fire pit so I can melt some iron all medieval style.

I've just been hesitant b/c it seems like alot of maintenance for a cooking dish (cleaning/oiling).

I'll provide an update on Monday

Smelting was no go (Damn HOA's). Did get a cast iron skillet on Saturday (bought it from a store, NOT like a badass :cry: ).

Cooked breakfast Sunday with it.

Bacon (think cut as ALWAYS) turned out better then using the griddle (which is still superior to the oven).

Had a minor issue with eggs. We eat them 'over easy' in the DN household and it's obviously easier on the flat griddle surface vice the skillet. But I ended up eating the eggs I screwed up and the wife's eggs turned out perfect so she was pleased.

Mrs. DN has wanted a skillet for the longest time anyways, so she was very happy and surprised when she came home Saturday and saw I had got one finally. That happiness quickly subsided when I made a sexist joke about kitchen and indoor cleaning stuff being her responsibility in our relationship.

If I had to pick one thing that made someone a good person, this would be it. My dad always did it for my mom and I do it for my girlfriend now.

You're probably out of bed first, you're up making the other person breakfast, you're probably making some coffee, yet, you break the yolk or overcook the egg, well, I guess that one's yours now.

That is nice, but it's moreso I just don't want to hear my wife complain :P. Her happiness is important to my sanity. She is also picky with her eggs when I really DGAF.

Thisnisbrhe reason we do it. Yeah, on paper we're nice. But in reality, peace and a screwed up egg > a perfectly good egg and having to listen to the complaining.

the only trick to over easy eggs is to heat the iron skillet without butter/oil. then add the oil/butter and quickly add the egg.

even with this...its pretty hard to get an egg not to crack.

I live alone, so I have no choice but to eat the busted egg.

Oh, and DN... frying eggs is certainly a challenge in an iron skillet, but it gets easier with experience.

I already have a plan for the next skillet breakfast this Sunday that was also inspired in this thread (Kress's pic).

I figured I'd try to keep simple the first attempt and just did eggs and bacon.

I think I'll probably just use the griddle for eggs, it's super simple and easy. But bacon will be fried in the skillet from this day forth!!!

My plan would be:

Cook bacon, remove.
Cook hash brown cut potatoes in bacon grease, nice and crispy, then remove.
Scramble eggs in same stuff, then mix bacon and potatoes back in, cover with cheese, and put the whole deal into the oven for a few to melt. Actually, go broiler for cheese browning numminess.


I'll be there at 8:00, so put out an extra place setting. Thanks in advance.

My last late night munchie snack was a bison burger wrapped in 3 pieces of thick cut, apple wood smoked bacon with ghost pepper jack cheese and butterkase melted over the top on a toasted potato bun. I go hard over here.
