Review: Good Cook Mini Loaf Pan with Mini Lasagna Recipe


What I really liked about this recipe that I can up with to make lasagna in the Good Cook Sweet Creations Mini Loaf Pan (Disclosure: I am a Good Cooks Blogger) is that even though my prep time took just as long, it look just over half as long (35 minutes instead of 1 hour) to bake this lasagna in 4 mini loaf pans instead of a 9x9" pan. So, it was much quicker from oven to table!

Also, I can offer a 25% off coupon to goodcook.com for the Mini loaf pan to my readers. Use CODE: SWEETLOAF

I am so excited about the versatility of this pan and have more plans to cook with it including a bread and possibly some fudge. This is such a great size pans to make gifts. I was given parchment paper to review along with it, but that doesn't really go with lasagna, but you will see it when I post pictures of my bread and candies. And what's even more awesome is I can share the love with one of my readers and you can win this set.

That is such a cool idea. I do have some mini loaf pans. It just never occurred to me to use them for making things like lasagna and meat loafs...

Nicole Fabian said...

Love this pan! I'd love to do it for banana bread too :)

Elisebet F said...

Ooo I want this pan! It's perfect because I always feel like my loaf pan is too big, especially since Hubby's gone for training for a few months. My toddler and I can never eat a whole loaf of anything!

Lexie Lane said...

What a great idea! Sometimes I feel like I just cooked too much. This would help divide dishes for me!

This would be perfect. We are a small family and we always have way too much lasagna left over.

auntietina said...

What a genius idea!!! Make two vegetarian and two with sausage --- please the entire family without making two separate dishes!
