Tips for Whipping Egg Whites


Dec. 1, 2016 3:16 pm


Whipping egg whites can be quick and simple with your NESCO Digital Hand Mixer. 

When whipping egg whites it's best to use a metal bowl such as stainless steel or copper. Avoid an aluminum bowl as it can alter the color of your eggs. 

Adding a half teaspoon of cream of tarter for two or more eggs will help keep the whipped egg whites firm.

When making meringue add 2 tablespoons of white sugar for each egg. Add sugar slowly while beating eggs. Whip until stiff peaks form.

18 Qt Camouflage Roaster Oven: Tasty Cabbage Rolls


Sep. 6, 2016 10:54 am


These hearty Cabbage Rolls blend just the right amount hamburger and rice for a satisfying meal. The 18 Quart Camouflage Roaster from Open Country® by NESCO® makes it simple at home or in your Northwoods cabin. 

Tasty Cabbage Rolls

1 large head of cabbage
3 pounds hamburger 
3 13 oz cans tomato soup 
2 sticks of butter (slice 1 stick) 
2 cups rice, cooked 
2 eggs 
1/2 cup bread crumbs 
salt and pepper to taste
2 quarts water

To prepare cabbage for rolling hamburger, I like to do it the old fashioned way by floating it in a large pot of boiling water. Carefully cut slices so each cabbage leaf floats off of head. Remove leaves and drain on paper towels. Cut spine out of leaf.

Prepare beef for rolling, mix rice, bread crumbs, eggs, hamburger, salt and pepper. Roll individual leaves of cabbage with meat mixture. 

Melt 1 stick of butter in cookwell while preheating 12 or 18 quart Nesco® Roaster Oven to 350 degrees. Place cabbage rolls in cookwell. After 1 layer, pour soup on top. Add butter slices. Layer this way until done. Add water to almost cover cabbage rolls. 

Cook 1 to 2 hours. 

Serves 18 to 24
