5 Easy Recipes You Can Make In Your Halogen Oven

A halogen oven isn’t just for roasted chicken and potato chips. It can help you create unusual meals with usual ingredients. Whether you need to make a quick breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even desserts, take advantage of your halogen oven and try out the following delicious recipes.

Here are some of my favorite recipes that I adapted from my friends and family. Enjoy! 😉

1. Antioxidant-Packed Spinach Cheese Omelet

Spinach is chock-full of antioxidants while eggs provide a good dose of protein. An omelet in a halogen oven is a bit different from a regular one, but it has a truly unique taste.

Ingredients:

2 cups spinach

5 eggs, beaten

1 bell pepper, finely chopped

½ white onion, finely chopped

½ cup green onion, finely chopped

1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped

3.5 oz. feta cheese

1 tablespoon milk

a drizzle of olive oil

Directions:

Preheat your halogen oven to 437F.

Place an ovenproof dish in the halogen oven, and add olive oil to it. Add the white onion and pepper and cook for 2 minutes, stirring. Remove the dish from the oven and set aside. 

In a medium bowl, combine together the spinach, eggs, parsley, green onion, feta cheese, milk, salt and pepper to taste, and whisk for a few seconds until well mixed. Add it to the dish, don’t stir, just shake to spread the egg mixture, and return to the oven. Cook for 5 minutes, or until it’s slightly golden.

2. Banana Coconut Nutty Cake

Treat yourself and your family to a freshly baked nutty cake with little to no hustle at all. 

Ingredients:

2 bananas, mashed

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup coconut flakes

2/3 cup brown sugar

½ cup walnuts, crushed

½ cup cashews, crushed

½ cup almonds, crushed

1 orange, juiced

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ cup carrot, grated (optional)

Directions:

Grease a loose-bottom cake pan or place a sheet of parchment paper onto it. 

In a large bowl, combine the bananas, eggs, brown sugar, nuts, orange juice, and carrot. Stir in the coconut flakes, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon. Whisk until well-combined.

Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake at 356F for 30 to 35 minutes on the lower rack of your halogen oven.

Reduce the temperature to 320F and bake for another 30 minutes, or until it’s done. 

Let your cake cool in the pan for about 10 minutes and then cut and serve.

3. Baked Jacket Potatoes
