Air Frying in a Halogen Oven

Here on my blog, I receive a reasonable number of hits on a regular basis, regarding a few specific search engine terms that include ‘halogen oven’.

One of these involves air-frying – or, more specifically; the optional air-frying attachment that can be purchased for most 12lt ovens.

With this in mind, I recorded a video several weeks ago and, on Monday evening, I go around to completing the editing process and uploading my brief introduction to the use of an air-frying attachment in my halogen oven.

I do hope this video is of use to others and, if that is the case, I will look to record further footage on the use of the halogen oven.

Thanks for reading and for watching.

No potato.

Cooking with Chicken

Having already made a few successful roast dinners (for one person) using a pack of plain chicken breasts, I decided, last week, to have a go at a couple of different chicken dishes.

There’s a distinctly Aisian theme to this and it started with these terriyaki-style meatballs.

Air Frying (with a Halogen Oven)

Over the weekend, I received a air-fryer attachment that quite simply allows me to fry foods in my Andrew James 12lt Halogen Oven and in manner that’s considerably more healthy than allow something to sizzle in a pan of boiling grime.

Potato Wedges / Halogen Bolognese

A couple more recent recipes to share with you; the first of which came from the cook book that came with my halogen oven and the second came from a website dedicated to halogen oven recipes.

Two New Meals

Last week, I attempted two new meals, following a pair of recipes from Norma Miller’s Halogen Oven Cook Book – which is where the cookies I recently told you about also came from.

I am able to say that both meals were prepared to an edible state but I’m still left with several questions and a feeling of uncertainty, as I prepare to re-attempt at least one of them this week.
