Many of you are gearing up for the big Super Bowl this weekend, but before you start calling in pizza orders you need to check out these game-winning recipes! Cast iron is the MVP this year, bringing you delicious, hot, crowd-pleasing dishes right out of your own kitchen. So if you’re looking for tasty touchdowns, take some plays out of Chef Alli’s Cast Iron Cookbook… your fans will thank you!
Cast-iron cooking is ideal for game-day fare mainly because it maintains its heat so well. It keeps your food hot longer and you can take your cast iron skillet straight from the grill to the oven to the serving table in minutes! If you’d like to learn more about cast-iron cooking, I’ve got a free cast-iron cooking guide available to download at www.chefallis.com. I also teach cast-iron cooking classes occasionally, so be sure to follow Chef Alli’s to stay up-to-date on any events!
