I love my Lodge Cast Iron pans. I don't know how I moved through my cooking life so long without them to be honest. They are SO great for SO many things. Get your hands on at least one good piece. Middle of the road size, it will surprise you what can be done with them. They are heavy and as I get older I notice that is a factor with cookware...but I will soldier on with the weight just for the versatility and the amount of heat you get from them. But I digress.
Huevos Rancheros...eggs for (Mexican) ranchers? Maybe a rough translation. Full of goodness. Beans, tomatoes, sausage, onions, all packing heat! Do it...You can make all of it up to the cooking of the eggs, in advance, then just heat up the sauce, (in your Lodge Cast Iron skillet) and oven on, eggs in, make your toast (or more authentically, tortillas) while you wait. YUM. Hearty hearty starty to any day with the gang. The food of ranchers!
