When I made the Apple Pancake recipe a few weeks ago (where you bake it in the oven in a skillet), Hubby and I both forgot that the skillet handle was hot when we were serving ourselves and touched it. So, I looked in the cabinet where I keep hot pads to get one for us to use to hold the skillet handle.
But, lo and behold, there in the back of the cabinet was something which is hardly ever used, but seemed perfect for this need. An oven mitt! Not only does putting it over the handle remind us that the handle is hot but it also makes it very easy to pick up.
The other recipe I make that calls for baking in a skillet in the oven is Easy Butter Chicken. And, as you can see, I used this idea then too. (FYI, that’s Lemon Pepper seasoning I had put on it that time — very good.)
If everyone in the world has already discovered this idea but me, just move on and have a nice day. But I was delighted when I discovered a nifty new fit for my seldom-used oven mitt.
