Roast frying in the oven

Here is a tip for a healthy alternative to deep frying. We call it “Roast Frying”.

Roast frying is very easy and applicable to low profile foods that are thin in shape, such as breadcrumb battered pork chops: just spray olive or frying oil all over the breadcrumb covered pork chops, preheat the oven to 430 F° (220° C) temperature and place the pork chops on a wire shelf or the roasting insert for the oven roasting pan. Then place the food on the wire shelf for 10 to 15 minutes. Wait until golden brown.

Your results will even be better when selecting the convection cooking mode. All Bertazzoni gas and electric ovens offer a convection cooking option as a standard feature. The resulting taste of the food might differ from traditional deep frying yet the flavors are plentiful and definitively healthier.

As an added bonus there is no oil splatter from the frying pan all over your kitchen counter and cooktop.
