What a joy not to have to deal with heating the oven, using more oil than I want to, and cleaning up after making baked sweet potato fries. I LOVE my Big Boss oil-less fryer!
Tonight I made two of my favorites that I would rarely eat had it not been for this low-fat way of making them. In addition to Sweet Potato Fries, I made Onion Rings. YUM!
Earlier in the day I prepared my Cheesy Eggplant No Noodle Lasagna (non-dairy) to pop in the oven 35 minutes before dinner.
This is the second time I am making this recipe, which I created when everyone wanted Lasagna Roll-Ups a week or so ago. I try to steer away from pasta (even whole grain) since the carbs a little too high for me.. and this was such a hit with J, that I made a larger tray today expecting to share it again.
Big Boss Sweet Potato Fries
- 2 large organic Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cut into thin fries
- Salt, sprinkle lightly over potatoes
- 1 tsp. Black Pepper
- 1 tsp. Paprika
- 2 tsp. Garlic Salt
- 1 Tbs. extra virgin Olive Oil
Place cover on oven and turn temperature to 450º. Lock handle and bake for 12-14 minutes, until edges of potatoes turn brown.Remove to a plate, and bake the rest of the potatoes the same way. Serves 4 – 6.
Big Boss Onion Rings
- 2 large organic red or white Sweet Onions (I like the flatter ones for rings)
- 1/4 c. finely crushed Corn or Multi-grain cereal flakes ( I use a mortar and pestle)
- 1/4 c. Barely, Rye, or Whole wheat flour
- 2 Tbs. toasted Bread Crumbs (whole grain or gluten-free)
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
- 1 High Omega-3 Egg
- 2 Tbs. Rice or Almond Milk
Mix dry ingredients together in a flat-bottomed bowl.
Mix egg and milk together in a separate bowl.
Place tall rack in Big Boss oven, and mesh tray on top.
Dip onion rings in egg mixture, then cover with dry mix and place on tray in a single layer. P.S. Since I started these just as everyone got to the table, I mixed the two together and dipped the rings in the batter, to speed the process… but that was a mistake since the batter stuck to the mesh basket, and made a mess. But the rings tasted great anyway!
Bake at 450º for 10-12 minutes, or until golden. Repeat with the rest of the onion rings.
~ Enjoy! ♥
