25+ one dish cast iron skillet and Dutch oven recipes for easy indoor, outdoor and wood stove cooking.
Cast iron is the number one cookware in my kitchen. Our grandmothers knew the wonder of cast iron and there are some old-fashioned things, okay a lot of old-fashioned things, we'd do best to go back to and leave the newer stuff in the stores. Teflon is not allowed in our home but despite it's questionable health issues, cast iron is much more efficient at turning out luscious desserts, succulent meats, and fluffy breads. Are ya hungry yet?
Oh, good. Because I've got some fun cast iron Dutch oven recipes. Because really, half the fun of cast iron is being able to cook on a wood stove (how to cook on a wood stove) or outdoors with coals. You now, true pioneer stuff.
Am I the only Mom who loves only dirtying up one pan and having supper ready?

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe (in a Cast Iron Pan) is probably going to be my favorite, but won’t know till I make at least a few dozen recipes, lol.
i always wanted to make cornbread in an iron pan! My favorite of all time is fried potatoes in my mom’s old skillet!
Just trashed all of my teflon and bought a few small cast iron pieces, would love this set to complete them ! Happy Holidays to you all!
Soups, stews and chowders of any kind but my favorite is beef stew with homemade biscuits.
Favorite cast iron recipe : Cornbread!
I make a really good sweet potato hash in my cast iron skillets and I can not wait to try some of these recipes!!! Thanks for sharing them!
This would be a wonderful gift for my daughter!
Sautéed chicken breasts in a lemon caper butter sauce. Yummy! Cornbread runs a close second, though.
I don’t know what my favorite recipe would be. I’ll have to try them all!
definitely hash browns.
Cast iron is the ONLY way to go!! I enjoy cooking outdoors and I have one frying pan and am looking to expand.
I’ve never cooked with cast iron, but I would LOVE to try it…I’ve seen so many interesting recipes.
The recipes look delicious!
Our Girl Scout troop made awesome lasagna and a Martha Wasington cake in a cast iron Dutch oven. They were outrageously delicious!
Thank you for the opportunity to enter this contest for a chance to win this wonderful cast iron set!
Fave recipe is our Chuicken Vegie, made in the Crock-pot…and fresh Cornbread! YUM!
I love any kind of bread cooked in a cast iron skillet. My Granny’s cornbread is especially delicious. I have her recipes, too.
I use cast iron every day. This set would be awesome.
My whole family loves the one pan chocolate chip cookie recipe I do in my skillet.
I LOVE the giant cookie in a skillet and doing cornbread- so many great recipes listed! I have fond memories of doing baked apples in a dutch oven while camping, and I would so LOVE to do that again!
My favorite recipe is Chicken Paprikash which was passed down from my Hungarian grandfather. Mine will never be as amazing as his, but I love making this for my family and I. Thanks!
I love to use cast iron to cook it make such a difference in the flavor. I only have two cast iron pieces, a chicken fryer with a lid and a skillet that were my great grandma’s.
Here is my favorite one pot meal that I make in my cast iron:
Chicken Taco Rice
2 chicken breasts
1 can chicken broth
1 taco seasoning packet
1 small can tomato sauce
1 can corn
2 cups minute rice
Toppings: shredded chees, lettuce and sour cream.
Cook your chicken breasts, remove from pan and chop into small pieces.
Combine, chicken, chicken broth, seasoning packet, tomato sauce and corn (undrained, moisture needed to cook rice) in skillet, simmer five minutes. Remove from heat, add minute rice. Cover with lid for five minutes. Serve over corn chips or wrapped in a flour tortilla with toppings of choice.
I have also added black olives to this on occasion.
My kids love it, it is fast and easy and clean up is quick.
My favorite cornbread in cast iron is quick, easy, and has just a hint of a bite. Our regular (we all have our favorite) cornbread recipe with the addition of a jalapeno sliced thin and scattered over the top. Yum! Thank you for the chance to enter!
My husband and I both LOVE to cook in cast iron. Our favorite Dutch oven recipe is a no-knead “sourdough” bread: Combine 3 cups flour, 1-1/2 tsp. sea salt, and 1-1/2 tsp. yeast together in a large glass or ceramic bowl (no metal for this recipe). Add 1-1/2 cups lukewarm water. Stir just enough to combine. Let set in a warm area for at least 4 hours. Preheat your Dutch oven to about 400F (either over coals, briquettes, or in the oven). Turn your dough out onto a floured surface. Fold the dough over onto itself once or twice adding enough flour for it to hold somewhat of a shape. Place dough into the preheated Dutch oven. Cover with lid and bake 45 minutes to 1 hour until golden. YUM!
After several of the basic loaves, we also started adding ingredients (just before you turn it out onto the floured surface) like cheese, onion, herbs, dried fruit, etc. Really good!
I love my cast iron skillet! I have an amazing pizza recipe, pop it all in and stick it in the oven!
My favorite recipe in cast iron is cornbread, I have a small 6 inch cast iron skillet for this recipe, made with fresh ground corn from my parents garden.
I have been wanting a cast iron dutch oven…more so since the weather has got me in the mood for soups and chillis.
Mexican cornbread baked in the cast iron skillet — fabulous!!
Cast iron cookware is the best! I am so glad it is making a well-deserved comeback.
I love to make Sante Fe stew and I am thinking that the skillet cornbread would be an awesome side. And if I am lucky enough to win, I have a sweet potato pie with a gooey pecan topping I would love to have baking along side of it at the same time. lol
Cornbread and stews are at the top of my favorite cast iron recipes.
I’ve been on the hunt for a dutch oven to start baking breads and am so excited about this opportunity! So of course, the no knead artisan bread with a twist recipe is my favorite. Thanks for the giveaway!
I love making sheppards pie in cast iron.
I can’t wait to try the Dutch Oven Chicken and Dumplings Recipe!! I love to make stew in my ci pots. I sure could use some more! 🙂
If I have to choose one recipe I would choose the enchilada one. If I can pick more add the potato egg and cheese one, the chocolate chip cookie, the cinnamon rolls…

Favorite, that’s hard everything is better. But I would say Mt. Dew Potatoes. Sliced potatoes, cheese, onion, bacon, and Mt. Dew for moisture.
cornbread & peach cobbler, but they all sound delicious!! Thanks for the recipes and all the help that you send my way!!!
I absolutely love cast iron.. Pineapple upside down cake made in mine is my all time favorite!! I can remember my memaw making Milk gravy in hers

Love the cinnamon buns
I would LOVE to learn how to use cast iron!!! 🙂 🙂
Anything that is healthy but can still act like comfort food! New to cast iron. Excited to learn 🙂
Phallin @ CottageHomestead
YAY! This would be so wonderful. We installed a larger wood stove this year and I am so eager to start cooking on it this winter. Thank you so much for posting these recipes, I have pinned it! 🙂
Love making cornbread in my skillet
Dutch Oven Chicken and Dumplings sounds delish!
I thoroughly enjoy making frittatas in my frying pan. I use whichever veggies or meat I can find, cook it up, spice it, and add the eggs…just let them cook with a lid on the pan. But then I have met very few recipes I don’t like – pref. grain-free.
Nice giveaway – thanks!
I am excited to try the dutch oven cheesecake. My family cooks all of our meat and veggies in our 12″ cast iron skillet.
I like Dutch Oven Stew but I need to try Dutch Oven Cheesecake!
I’ve used a cast iron skillet for years and recently invested in a Dutch oven… would love more pieces. Looking forward to trying the recipes!
our favorites are cornbread & biscuits. All the recipes here sound yummy, can’t wait to try them!
Our families have used cast iron for generations after generations and would not do without it! Would love to win the Lodge set and start the grand children with their own cast iron pieces!! Looking forward to trying your recipes also!!!!

I always take the top off of my dutch oven about 30 minutes before the chicken is done. I baste it and then let the skin crisp up.
I just recently received my first cast iron Dutch oven for our camping trips. I’ve been using cast iron for years for my stove top, now I’m ready for the next adventure. Besides buying the Lodge company’s liners, is there any other options for lining my Dutch oven for quick clean up while camping? I noticed parchment paper, (possibly?) in one of your pictures, and was thinking how cheap and easy that would be!
I use parchment paper a lot, it’s frugal and much easier on clean up.
Love cast iron
