So we all know that slow cookers and InstaPots are sweeping the world with their super simple dinner prep, right? Well, don’t worry if you don’t own one of those contraptions yourself! While I do own a Slow Cooker, I have yet to get an InstaPot, but you know what I do have? A cast iron skillet! Skillets are the perfect way to whip up a quick and easy meal, like this Pineapple Ham Skillet Meal Recipe! It is really good, with a nice hint of sweetness and a lot of flavor!
Anything that makes cooking dinner – or any meal, for that matter – easier, is A+ in my book! I love the sweet and savory flavor combinations in this Pineapple Ham Skillet Meal Recipe, it reminds me of Hawaiian style pizza, minus the crust and cheese! I mean, come on, who doesn’t love Pineapple and Ham together! It’s amazing!
