We are always looking for ways to bring a bit of that taste house to Missouri and this frying pan does just that.

Tips for making this dish:

  • Make certain to blanch the asparagus. I know it most likely appears like simply an extra action and extra pot dirtied. If you do not blanch it first it takes it rather a while to cook in the skillet and by then it’s gotten soaked and everything else has gotten soaked and it’s not truly the exact same.
  • Don’t poke the potatoes. It’s really challenging to stop yourself from continuously stirring and poking the pan. Attempt and limit yourself. Stirring the potatoes constantly will only make them take longer to prepare and deteriorate their shape.
  • If Cajun flavoring is too hot for you or your little ones feel totally free to cut back on the quantity.. If you do not have/don’ t like Cajun spices this frying pan is likewise tasty with Italian spices. Do not hesitate to get used to your and your families individual tastes.
  • While it isn’t important, I’m obsessed with cooking in my cast iron skillet. Not simply meat!
