Meatloaf

img_0378

A family favorite for many years turned less greasy by cooking in the Faberware Air Frier.  I prepared the meatloaf as normal & placed in the preheated air fryer coated with a non-stick spray.

Here is my recipe.

1-1.5# ground beef

1/2 c. Diced tomatoes

1/2 c. Chopped onion

1 egg, beaten

Salt & pepper, to taste

1 T. Liquid Smoke

1 T. Worcestershire

Enough to Oat Meal (or crushed saltine crackers) to make a nice mixture that will hold it’s shape and not be sticky (about 1/2 to 3/4 c.). Shape into a round.  Please the meatloaf in the preheated, sprayed Air Frier and cook for 15 minutes.  Remove the insert and turn the meatloaf out on a dish, then slide the meat back into the insert (turning the meat over).

Add the topping:

1/2 c. Ketchup

2 t. Brown Sugar

1 t. Mustard

Shake or 2 of Worcestershire

Cook another 15 minutes or until completely cooked.

 

NOTE:  If using a 85% or higher ground beef, add 2 T. Oil to the mixture so it will brown.

 

Low Carb Pancakes

Low Carb Pancakes & Waffles (makes 4 pancakes)
1/4 c. Low fat cream cheese
2 eggs
2 TB oat bran
1/4 t. Vanilla
1/4 t. Cinnamon
3/4 t. Baking Powder
1 T. Artificial Sweetener (she used Truvia & I used Splenda)

Heat griddle/waffle iron to350*.  In a small glass bowl, microwave cream cheese until soft (about 20-30 seconds).  Beat with a fork.  Add eggs one at a time, beating until completely mixed in.  Add your remaining ingredients and mix well.

Pour into cooking vessel and cook until brown on both sides.

For freezer:  allow pancakes to cool then spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Freeze until hard then seal in a freezer bag.  To thaw, just stick them in the toaster.

Note:  I found they had an acceptable flavor, however they did not rise quite as much as I would like.  I’ll try then again and see if the results are the same.
