Most Underutilized Kitchen Tool (you already own)

Standard

The Broiler.  

Kitchen Oven Broiler

Use the oven broiler to make tasty food – fast!

New and seasoned chefs alike, are commonly afraid to use this basic oven tool when cooking in the kitchen.  Nonsense!

I challenge you to make one of my favorite and delicious BROILER recipes, the Breakfast Frittata!  It is really easy to make- especially in the morning.

TIP: Try it tomorrow morning and serve it to your sweetie in bed!
