In the summer, stove top recipes are basically the best. I don’t want to turn on my oven too often because 1) it’s so hot and 2) it’s more work than an easy stove top recipe. If I can dump in the ingredients, fry ’em up or let ’em simmer and have a delicious meal in a little while, I’m thrilled. Best of all, stove top recipes are usually quick. When I come home from work and I’m crazy with hunger, I like being able to toss together a homemade meal in my fry pan.
There are so many delicious stove top recipes from the South! From traditional grits to modern mac n’ cheese, your fry pan and stove top are a godsend when it comes to fast family dinners with plenty of appeal. I’d say I use my stove top about four nights a week, and my oven the other three nights for casseroles. It works out nicely!
Skillet recipes are so popular this year. Everyone’s obsessed with cast iron skillet recipes, but a skillet and fry pan are essentially the same thing. You can make ‘skillet’ recipes in your fry pan with ease!
