Need Cast Iron Skillet Inspiration

I haven't really cooked anything interesting in the last week, nor have we gone out, so I'm pretty lean on the blog material.

I did  buy a 12 inch cast iron Lodge skillet last week.  The only thing that I've cooked in it so far is hamburgers and pork chops, so I could use some inspiration.  Anyone have any ideas for how I can really break it in right?

If it isn't already seasoned, the only thing you should be cooking is bacon. Seasoning a cast iron skillet is the perfect excuse to eat bacon every day for a week (okay, maybe every other day). If it's the pre-seasoned kind, how about a pineapple upside down cake? Or some crusty cornbread...

Celeste, it was preseasoned so I think I'm ok, although I'm almost inclined to season it again. I have a baby cast iron skillet for cornbread but mmm, pineapple upside down cake sounds really good. Have you a good recipe for one?

I was thinking crispy cornbread, too! Or a frittata.

Fantastic hash browns - parcook red potatos in microwave, shred. Preheat skillet with shortening or lard, cook over medium hi heat till golden, turn only once as a unit. I also love to use mine as a pizza stone, great for deep dish pizza. Great to make baked upside down french toast. I LOVE my cast iron cookware!
