    Combi Microwave Recipes 12th Jan 08 at 7:44 PM
    Hi Old-Stylers

    I've had a bit of a search and frankly I'm a bit let down

    I can't find a surplus of recipes to test in my (fairly) new combi-oven. The ones I could find were for meringues and cakes - which I shouldn't read as that is not why the purchase was made in the first place

    So if nobody minds and Pink can't magically find a replica would folks mind a combi-oven recipe thread? I guess all the cooking times would depend on specific models but maybe they would provide a starting point :confused:

    I don't really want to buy another cookery from Amazon if I can help it as I'm at book critical mass

    Anyway my first contribution:

    Oven Chips

    (excuse for this not being healthy/nutritious: I don't feel very well today)

    Chuck frozen chips on tray,

    Micro/Grill combination for 8 minutes - turn over half way through cooking

    These were crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle which is much better than I can get them in the oven. I was pleasantly surprised - nothing like those horrible mccain micro chip ones.

    I plan to try brownies soon.

    Anybody got any destructions for proper food?

    Daewoo Combination Microwave
    I used to have a Sharp Combi which was a doddle to use. I have had the Daewoo for over five years now and only used the micro function as I do not understand how to programme the combi function. The recipe book gives Combi 1 thro' to 5 - Combi 1 is suitable for cakes etc but the micro is set to 60% or less (so is this 'medium' or what), and what degree centigrade or F is Combi 1?

    Recipes 2008.
    Oven fried chicken.

    (I can't vouch for this one - I haven't tried it, mainly cos I haven't a clue what almond nibs are:confused:.)

    100g plain flour
    100g melted marg
    1 egg
    150ml milk
    125g almond nibs (whatever they are - anyone?)
    1 tbs baking powder
    2 tsp cayenne pepper
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp salt
    750g-1kg chicken pieces.

    Beat egg and milk together in a bowl.
    Combine dry ingredients in a plastic bag.
    Dip chicken pieces in egg mixture then shake them in the bag to coat.

    Arrange chicken on metal tray of microwave and dual cook for 15 mins 250 C/Med.

    Hi many thanks for the combi recipes. I know they were posted along time ago but I was very pleased to find them as I have just purchased a combi microwave and the manual is woeful, although I love the machine.
    Almond nibs are finely chopped almonds, but I am sure after all these years you know that. The recipe sounds good.

    Did anyone ever come up with a combi bread recipe? I've just got a new panasonic and was watching the bread community store programme on BBC2 this week and it made me really want to have a go.

    Hi spike,

    As your thread has dropped down the board I've added it to the main thread on combi microwave recipes.

    You might find some advice to help on these threads too:

    help how do I use my new combi microwave

    Can I really cook just with a combi microwave?

    Thanks for this thread. I've just bought a new combi grill/oven/microwave after my 20 year old Matsui gave up on me. I've had it a month now and have been baffled as to how to cook anything other than baked potatoes in it - the manual is very basic, I don't know why the manufacturers can't provide a recipe book. I'm looking forward to trying out a few recipes this weekend
