Hi, just joined

Post  Debbie L on 04.01.11 4:32

Hi everyone my names debbie and i treated myself to a halogen oven for christmas after being withought my gas cooker for over a year!! (i couldnt afford to have it connected) so i'm fairly new to using my oven, so far all ive cooked in it are sausages on the day i bought it because i couldnt wait to use it lol, then my chicken roast on christmas day. i would love to be able to cook like i used to on my convential cooker, so i searched for a chilli recipe just to see if i could cook this type of food and low and behold i found this site.
I'm a bit wary about what i can and cant do in my halogen oven so at the moment i'm scared i might break it Smile
I love the fact that whatever you are cooking is kept away from the fat that drips off and lets face it everyone can benefit from less fat in foods, i cant wait to read more recipes and get started at being more adventurous and getting used to my cooker, i hope i havent waffled too long, happy cooking xxx

Hello and Welcome to the forum debbie you've come to the right place for helpful tips and recipes try to read some of the previous posts for help and recipes. If you treat your oven like your conventional cooker jsut bit more effiecent you wony go far wrong most of it is experience and experimentation to find out what works best for you... most basic things you need are the rack high and low extender ring is good tin foil to cover food if cooking to fast pyrex dish or oven proof dishes time and practise. If you have a question just post someone may have the answer Good Luck

Thank you Hummingbird, i'm going to give chilli con carne a go tonight, is it safe to cook the mince in the glass bowl first? i used to fry the onion and mince then drain it before adding the rest of my ingredients i know its going to be a little awkward to drain it as i got a 12 litre one, i think i should just try it and stop thinking about it, trial and error is best rather than not giving it a go at all Smile

Hi Debbie and welcome

Welcome

It is safe to cook the mince in the glass bowl but will take longer to cook as the hot air can't circulate underneath - it's also a very heavy item and when hot difficult to handle safely.
If you have a hob, it would be easier and quicker to fry the mince and then add to a casserole dish placed on a rack to finish in the HO.

Good Luck

Hi Debbie if possible use a pyrex dish or anything oven safe to fry onions and meat add hot liquid and hopefully it will turn out fine

Aww thanks Reeta i do have a habit of waffling a lot lol, thanks hummingbird thats the recipe that brought me to this site, its similar to mine but i dont do the garlic and i use different bits and bobs i'm gutted though as i had a jar of Bulgarian spices, that i used in almost everything including beans, for years (coz you only needed a little each time) and because there isnt much room in my cupboard it fell out and smashed my kitchen smelt lovely for days though Smile
so if anyone's going to Bulgaria this year pick me up a jar please Smile xxx
