Air Fryer Hors d’oeuvres
One of the things I like doing is messing around with my Nicer Slicer in the kitchen. I have 2-3 slicers at the ready to make modifications and move quickly if I have an idea I want to work out.
One helpful hint is that when you use the slicer to cut just toasted bread and bagels, watch the blade of the knife you are using. If it gets gummed up with the just baked bread interior - stop and clean it off. It will slice much more efficiently when it is clean.
I bought an air fryer about a year ago and immediately put my good toaster up on the shelf. The air fryer gives me a lot of control over the toasting process and as a Nicer Slicer aficionado I am always interested in better control when it comes to toasting!
The other evening, I was thinking about Hors d’oeuvres, and I had another small break through with the air fryer. This idea is a quick and easy approach- I liked this recipe for the simplicity, speed, economy and crunchiness it provided.
You can use 2 two pieces of bread and end up with 16 hors d'oeuvres. I made eight with the following ingredients:
1 piece wheat bread
4 thinly sliced strips of good quality Mozzarella Cheese
2 tablespoons of Feta Cheese
2 tablespoons of pickled onions
• Toast and “slicer” the bread in the Nicer Slicer
• Lay out two toasted slices crunchy side down on baking tray for Air Fryer
• Add two Slices of Mozarella cheese to toast pieces, pickled onions and sprinkle feta cheese over top and bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes
• Remove from Air Fryer, let cool slightly
• Move slices to a cutting board and cut each piece into 4 bite size hors d'oeuvres.
What is great about this recipe is it's fast, easy to do and not expensive. The Air Fryer gives a lovely extra crunch to the toast. There are surely other cheese and vegetable combinations which would be quite tasty.
The next time I do this I will mix up some cream cheese and white wine to add to the mixture. it already sounds good and I don't even know where that will end!
