Welcome to the 21st century! The waiting is over. No more cooking on inferior equipment!  Your Kitchen Aid KSEG950ESS oven has arrived and you will soon be cooking like a professional chef. This oven is a 30 inch, 4 element electric slide in range. The Kitchen Aid offers an electric downdraft built into the cooktop. No overhead hood is needed. Smoke and odors are pulled outside or filtered air is recirculated inside. With a fan and a bow-tie designed heating element to the rear of the 6.4 cubic foot oven chamber, combined with the top and bottom elements, the oven temperature is certain to remain the same throughout the cooking time. Now cooking will be a modern-day adventure, easy and trouble-free when cooking with your new Kitchen Aid appliance. We know that you can’t wait to start cooking some healthy meals for your family so we’ve included some low-fat, low-cholesterol recipes for your culinary delight.

Appetizer – Potato Skins – (Serves 6)

  • 6 medium red potatoes, baked
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 ounces fat-free cottage cheese, undrained
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon green onions (green part only), finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 4 large black olives, each cut into 6 slices
  • Cooking spray

Preheat the Kitchen Aid oven to 450 degrees. Since you are cooking in a convection oven the heat will need to be reduced by about 25%. Your new oven will perform this task for you. Just follow the easy directions on the digital display!

With a knife of your choice, cut the potatoes in half. Scoop out the centers leaving about 1/4 inch around the inside of each potato. Cut the potatoes in half again and lightly spray the pulp side with some type of cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine the garlic powder, chili powder, ground cumin, and pepper. Sprinkle pulp side of the potato with the rub. Place potatoes skin side down on a baking sheet.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. (Remember: The efficiency of a convection oven will reduce the cooking time–but your new Kitchen Aid will lead you through the steps.

In the meantime, using a food processor blend the cottage cheese, lime juice, green onions, and chili powder until smooth. Spoon about 1 teaspoon into each potato skin. Top each skin with an olive slice. Serve!

  • 1 small apple, peeled and grated (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce (lowest sodium possible)
  • 2 tablespoons no-salt-added ketchup
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound extra-lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup uncooked quick-cooking rolled oats

The Glaze

  • 1/2 cup all-fruit apricot spread

  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon red hot-pepper sauce

Preheat your Kitchen Aid oven to 350 degrees. With your cooking spray, lightly coat a 9×5-inch loaf pan.

Using a large bowl, combine the onion, apple, egg whites, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, garlic, oregano, and salt.

Work the beef and rolled oats into the onion mixture until blended. Transfer to a loaf pan and pat down into a rectangle.

Bake for 45 minutes. Remove loaf from the oven and drain off excess fat.

In a 2 quart saucepan, whisk together all of the glaze ingredients. Cook over medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes, or until thickened and bubbling. Whisk constantly.

Spoon over the cooked meat loaf. Bake for another 15 minutes or until the meat loaf reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Confirm there is no pink in the middle. Remove from the oven and allow to stand for a few minutes before slicing.
