Just this morning, I wrestled my favorite cast iron pan out of the garage. Made by Lodge, this pan measures 15 inches in diameter and is indispensable when it comes to camp cookery.
Of course, cast iron cookware is essential to campground cookery, and we have acquired a wide selection of Dutch ovens, skillets, and griddles over the years. This pan, however, seems to beat them all when it comes to size and versatility. Like my 10-inch cast iron skillet that I use daily at home, this massive pan is great for frying eggs and bacon in the morning. It’s also awesome for browning breaded oysters and making grilled cheese or quesadillas. Potatoes brown beautifully in the pan, and cinnamon rolls even turn out okay.
I’ve spent a lot of time in the Rockies and never saw an oyster – a few fresh water clams, yes, but oysters? No. Unless the writer is referring to Rocky Mountain Oysters, in which case, we’re not talking seafood here.
