Greasy foods FAQ
Q. How can I make the fried foods I love healthier?
A. There is no denying it. Fried foods are packed with unhealthy fats and calories. However, there are some ways to enjoy those same foods without doing so much harm to your health.
- Limit your intake of the real deal. Those onion rings from your favorite restaurant? Cut down the number of times you order them by half, and they will be even better when you do enjoy them
- Bake instead of fry. Many fried foods have delectable and health counterparts. Baking them on a lightly oiled baking sheet will crisp them right up and reduce the number of calories and fat they contain. To season russet potatoes, add a little garlic and herbs
- By using a convection oven, you can achieve a convection oven. These handy little ovens have the ability to crisp up our favorite fried dishes using a fraction of the oil they normally use when deep frying
Q. Can I re-use the oil in my deep fryer?
A. Yes, but please pay attention to its appearance and odor. Strain the oil into a glass or stainless steel container and store the oil in a cool place between uses. If you often fry foods, the oil will develop flavor. You will also want to avoid frying donuts in the same oil you fried fish in last week.
