Small Lodge CI dishes...

Got these as a gift... I'm looking for ideas for what I can cook in them. They look like they will fit perfect in the Mini. Any suggestions?

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Both barely fit in the Mini and the lid closes flat.

  • You could do cornbread in those. I might use them to cook enchilladas.

    They seem to be too small for making anything that would serve more than a couple of people but maybe just a tad to big for individual serving sizes (e.g., cobbler or pot pie).

    I agree with cornbread..blueberry muffins, personal size breakfast quiches, cobbler, cookies. I see those in home goods often and never grabbed them. I think I have just convinced myself to get some as well!

    Awesome ideas... I particularly like the smoked Mac and cheese and chicken pot pie. Anybody have recipes for those that they are fond of?

    i have some that are similar to that i like to make shrimp scampi in them, or browning of mushrooms and onions in butter for burgers.  Here is my go to on smoked mac and cheese.  http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1142142/smoked-mac-and-cheese#latest  

    it is pretty basic but can be modified to whatever you want especially add ins.

    I bet those could be used to do something delicious with ghost peppers.

    I've got a few of those, and they work well for various styles of potatoes as well as mushrooms.

    I do jerk shrimp. Sauté shallot, garlic, capers and grape tomatoes in butter and olive oil, add a touch of beer or wine and jerk seasonings. Throw in some shrimp. Just the right size for 2 to 4 servings.

    I roasted a whole chicken tonight, so I think we will have chicken pot pie tomorrow with the leftover chicken.

    Lots of great ideas on this thread... I have lots of research to do! Thanks everyone!

    I have a few of those Lodge Cast iron individual pans as well.  As mentioned above, I've done cornbread, mac'n cheese, brownies, baked beans, etc.
