Saladmaster Cooking School

Last Saturday we went to another Saladmaster Cooking School for Saladmaster owners.  Everything we had to eat was delicious and I can't wait to try my hand at everything.  The menu for the day was The Great Pumpkin Chili, Bountiful Apple Salad, Broccoli Cornbread, and Apple Crumble Dessert.  I've already made the chili and it was yummy!  They also did prize drawings again this time and Shawn won a set of binoculars and I want a fun pink cooler!  I've added the recipes to the end of this blog. :)  Happy Eating!

The Great Pumpkin Chili – 3 Qt Saucepan with Inset (Church Pan), 5 Qt Stockpot

3 lbs. ground beef
2 green peppers, chopped
3 14½ oz. cans diced tomatoes
2 onions, chopped
2 15 oz. cans kidney beans, drained & rinsed
2 T. chili powder
15 oz. can pumpkin
¼ t. cayenne pepper
2 T. honey
1 t. salt

Process the onion on the Saladmaster Machine with the #2 cone. Chop the green pepper with a knife (it doesn't do well on the Saladmaster Machine). Place ½ inch of water in the 3 Qt saucepan and put the
Inset (Church Pan) on top. Brown ground beef in the Inset over medium heat, stirring to crumble; the grease will drain into the water below. Put browned gound beef into 5 Qt stockpot and stir in remaining ingredients. Place 5 Qt stockpot with all ingredients on stove set to medium heat. When Vapo Valve clicks, stir, replace lid and reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, for one hour. You may leave it on the stove set to low indefinitely as it will not boil dry or burn, but one hour is the minimum required for the peppers, onions and beans to be nice and soft. Makes 12 servings.

Bountiful Apple Salad – Saladmaster Machine

1 red apple
¼ c. orange yogurt
1 green apple
1 T. lemon juice
½ c. celery
3 c. Romain lettuce
1/3 c golden raisins
chopped walnuts or pecans
1 T. orange zest
¼ c. Miracle Whip

Process apples on the Saladmaster Machine with the #2 cone, process the celery with the #4 cone. Chop
the Romain lettuce with a knife. In a large bowl, mix apples, celery, raisins and orange zest; set aside. Mix Miracle Whip, yogurt and lemon juice together in a small bowl; gently fold into apple mixture. Salad may be
refrigerated for an hour, if desired. Arrange lettuce on a platter or in an oblong serving dish; spoon salad
over lettuce. Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Sugared walnuts or pecans are delicious tossed over this salad. Place ¾ c. nuts, ¼ c. sugar and 1 t. butter
in any Saladmaster skillet. Cook and stir over medium heat for about 7 minutes, until sugar is golden and
melted. Spread carefully on a greased baking sheet and let cool completely.
Broccoli Cornbread – Electric Oil Core Skillet

2 Boxes Jiffy Cornbread Mix
4 Eggs
10 oz Cottage Cheese
10 oz Frozen Chopped Broccoli
1 Medium Yellow Onion
1 Stick Butter

Process onion on Saladmaster Machine with the #2 cone. Melt butter in 200° electric skillet. In separate
bowl, mix all other ingredients together until it forms a thick batter. Pour melted butter into bowl and mix.
Wipe skillet clean with paper towel and turn heat up to 315°. When it reaches temperature, lightly coat
skillet with non-stick pan spray and evenly add mixture. Bake at 315° for 30-40 minutes.
Apple Crumble Dessert – 11” Skillet

1 Cup Old-Fashioned Oats
2 Tbsp Butter
½ Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tsp Cinnamon
4 or 5 Granny Smith Apples
Note: Do NOT forget the apples here either!!!

Process apples on the Saladmaster Machine with the #2 cone directly into 11” skillet. Combine oats with
brown sugar, cinnamon and butter; mix well. Crumble mixture over apples and cover. Medium-Click-Low.
Once you've turned it to low, cook for 10 minutes. This is great with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
