Baked Crème Brulee French Toast Casserole along side a savory dish in Convection

Yes, there will be no transference of flavor when you cook a sweet dish along side a savory one in Convection. Isn't that wonderful? This means I can bake in multiple racks: a dessert and a main dish in one go. Time will not fly when you take advantage of what a convection oven offers.


This brunch menu includes 3 different dishes that can be cooked at the same time in one oven using the True Convection or Convection Bake mode. Because the cooking time and temperature are the same for all 3 recipes, you can plan the cooking so the food will be ready to serve at the exact time you want to eat. The menu includes a frittata-style dish with green chilis and cheese, a baked french toast casserole, and to round it out some roasted potatoes with sausage and peppers.


Each dish serves 6 - 8 people.

Baked Ham with Tangerine Glaze and Roasted Carrots

Since ham is already cooked by smoking it is most often eaten cold, however heated through and brushed with a fruity glaze it makes a great centerpiece for celebration meals.  


In order to heat the ham through it usually needs a fair bit of time in a slow oven and to avoid drying out the meat it is covered until the final stage when the glaze is added. However, if you bake your unsliced ham in Convection you will not need to cover the ham and the heating through time will take approximately 1 ½ - 2 hours, depending on the weight of the ham. If you are heating a sliced ham then it must remain covered in foil to avoid drying out.
