Every so often, I hit a wall. My recipes aren’t working the way I want them. I am out of words to write posts with. My creative spirit is very, very low. I know when I get like this the best thing to do is step away and concentrate on other things for awhile so for the next two weeks I am not going to be here. I’ll be recharging so I can be creative again. I will also come back and share a little more about this guy,
Today I had my first, and hopefully last, video class room training. I have so much respect for all the students, teachers, businesses people and other employees who do them on a daily basis. They are quite a challenge.
I tried this recipe because I had all the ingredients and wanted some vegetables with my eggs and bacon one morning. Do the patties really taste like hash browns like all the blogs said? I don’t think so but they are a really tasty way too get some vegetables into your meal.
2 large eggs
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 large onion, thinly sliced
2 cups cabbage, finely shredded
1 TBS olive oil
In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, garlic powder,salt, pepper. Add cabbage and onion and mix well. In a large frying pan, over medium heat, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, use 1/4 cup measure to scoop out the cabbage mixture and drop it into the pan. I only do 2 patties at a time do there is room to flip them. Once you have two mounds of the cabbage mixture in the pan, use a spatula to press each mound flat. This will help the patties stick together. Cook 3 minutes on one side, flip, then cook 3 minutes on the other side.
When I bought my air fryer 6 months ago, I never expected I would come to use it and love it as much as I do my pressure cooker but I have. Between the two gadgets, I have literally gone weeks without starting my oven. I never would have guessed the could be so useful to me.
Today I would like to feature some blogs I have found that have good air fryer recipes.
1. My Forking Life — I just recently found this blog. It is one of a few blogs I found that routinely posts air fryer recipes for real food, not processed food.
2. Two Sleevers — I have talked about this blog often because I love the food. Dr. Pitre has many great air fryer recipes on her site.
3. Skinny Taste — The first air fryer recipe I tried was for bagels from her air fryer cookbook.
I have cooked a lot of yummy stuff in my air fryer but my favorite thing to cook by far are vegetables. My favorite vegetable so far corn on the cob.
Corn On The Cob
From Easy Air Fryer Magazine
4 ears of corn, shucked and cleaned
Cut the corn to fit in the air fryer basket. Place the corn in the air fryer basket. Cook at 375 degrees for 12 minutes, turning halfway through.
The temperature is rising and my air conditioner is dying. So my air fryer and instant Pot are saving my butt right now. They are getting me fed without heating up my apartment so don’t be surprised to see a lot of recipes using them both the next couple of weeks.
This week I had already several air fryer recipes planned for the 4th of July so we will start with a good all American hamburger.
Inspired by Air Fryer Handbook Magazine
1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp salt, to taste
1/4 tsp ground black pepper, to taste
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 lb ground beef
Set the air fryer to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper and parsley. Add the ground beef and mix well but be careful not to over work the meat. You don’t want tough burgers.
Divide the meat mixture in half and shape into two patties. With your thumb, put an indent in the center of each patty to prevent the patties from bulging in the middle. Put the patties into the air fryer basket and lightly spray the tops with oil.
Cook for 10 minutes. You don’t have to turn the patties. Serve with toppings of your choice.
