    I just prepared this for dinner with my husband and he said it should have been saved for a special occassion. This from a non-loving Brussel sprout kind of guy. I did have to make a few alterations. I used regular-sized sprouts and cut them in half. I didn’t have a lemon so that was omitted and used a Mediterranean spice blend and it still came out company-worthy. I can’t recommend the dish enough. Good job!

    As a long time fan of cast iron pans, cornish hens and mildly risque humor, you just made my day ;-) As a recent (well, one year) widow I will be trying this in a smaller size pan for one, but I have no doubt I will enjoy it immensely as all of the ingredients are ones I thoroughly enjoy. Loving the blog – keep up the good work, and by all means don’t let the occasional snippy comment stop you from sharing your uniquely delightful humor ;-)

    • Thanks for the kind words Sylvia!

      I’m so glad that I could make you smile. Good food and a few giggles is what I try to do with this blog. Life is serious enough… ;) I hope you enjoy this recipe. I plan on using my cast iron skillets a whole lot more in the coming months. CHEERS!

    You know, I just wanted a recipe to use in my new cast iron skillet, I don’t remember typing “Please let me wade through a bunch of sexism to get to the flippin’ recipe.”

    • Jacinda,

      Not sure that I see my post the same way that you do, but I hope you enjoy the recipe. It really is delicious.

    I am 70 years old, and a cast iron skillet has always been a basic in my kitchen . I recently cleared out the family farmhouse and brought home my grandmother ‘s cast iron skillet. If only it could talk! It is well seasoned from many family meals. I plan to give it to my daughter, and I will print this recipe to go with it.

    • Meanness…you have TOTALLY made my day! Thank you.

  • Sweet baby Jesus in a manger!!! Like I needed one more meal that I HAVE to pin, and actually MAKE!!! This just topped the list!!!! Pam you are the best!! And I officially need to go buy a Cast Iron Skillet!

    • Jessica, yes – you MUST make this. Something this delicious should not be so easy to make.

  • I desperately want a cast iron skillet… When I moved home, my mom was putting hers into THE DISHWASHER! I was horrified.

    October 17, 2012
    • Bunny, you can probably find an inexpensive one at a garage sale. Plus, it will already be well on its way to being seasoned…assuming they didn’t wash it in the dishwasher like mom. :)

  • That is a gorgeous meal and I love one pot meals!

    October 17, 2012
    • Thanks Jenny!

      I’m officially hooked on making my one pot meals in the cast iron skillet now. Lots of good crispy stuff…not all that mushy stuff.
