If you do not have the right size pan called for in a recipe it is easy to substitute to another baking pan, baking dish or an iron skillet. Add your own touch of creativity by adding a simple topping or garnish. Leftovers from these recipes provide a great treat or lunch meal for another day. A plate of leftover is quick and easy to zap in the microwave.
