  1. If ya don’t have a cast iron skillet, what do you recommend?

    Get one! Ha! No honestly I’m not real sure how this would turn out otherwise. The next best option would be a pan lined with parchment paper? If anyone else has tried it without a skillet please comment below. Thanks!
    FYI you can always find cast iron skillets at flea markets 🙂
