9 Recipes for Cast Iron Cooking

Megan Myers | Stetted

Cast iron cooking makes me think grandmothers cooking over a hot stove, cowboys out on the prairies, and a fresh batch of cornbread coming out of the oven. But cast iron is not just for those days of yore anymore!

The back-to-basics movement in cooking has really brought some old-time classics into our kitchens again, including cast iron. While using these heavy dishes might seem difficult, they're actually quite versatile to use. Of course, we love them for the best steaks ever and crackly bread, but have you tried making cookies in cast iron? Or how about classic cobbler? 

We've collected some of our favorite cast iron recipes for you to get inspired.
