I do this with just dipping in beaten egg & then flour -no cracker crumbs
Are you familiar with the halogen/convection oven that sits on top of the counter? I now fry in that. We use so much less oil. Please, let me know if there is some reason I should not be using this device. I don’t find many that are familiar with it. Thank you
I have a halogen/convection cooker/oven but I don’t use any oil in it so I’m confused by your comment. I cook fish, french fries, etc., but I don’t use any oil. It is convection cooking in that there is heat and forced air (convection) and the heat source is the halogen bulb which is very hot. There’s no reason not to use it. Takes less electricity, cooks food quicker, is very safe, no safety concerns or nutritional deterioration. Easy clean up, soapy water, start up heating element, water heats and swirls around and unit is cleaned up quickly. If you don’t want to do that, clean glass normally, clean stainless steel 2 stage food shelves normally without electricity and swirling soapy water.

Try this recipe with a teaspoon or tablespoon of Romano type cheese in the flour or cracker mix.
Can these be baked in the coven to eliminate frying?
Lynne I am not sure why you couldn’t. Now of course they won’t have the exact same flavor as when they are fried in oil (that is why we all love fried foods so much : ) but I would try a few and see what happens.
We enjoy dipping the fried veggies in the ranch dressing with a little creamed horseradish added, especially the onion rings. I can’t fry enough onion rings some nights! Thank you for your recipes and suggestions. I really appreciate your ideas.
Oh Nancy that sounds so yummy because I love horseradish so much.
