Chicken Roasting Tips


Dec. 23, 2016 12:56 pm


There are many great tips when roasting chickens in your NESCO 18 Quart Roaster oven. Here are a few to try.

1. Cook more than one chicken at a time. Your 18 Quart Roaster Oven can hold up to the chickens at a time. You can have one now and save the others for various recipes that call for cooked chicken, like chicken tacos or tasty chicken salad.

2. Some people like to tie the wings and legs down then cook their whole chicken breast side down for about twenty minutes. Then they turn it breast side up and finish cooking until done. It helps make for juicer white meat.

3. Try rubbing dried herbs under the breast and leg skin for a wonderful flavor. To do so take your fingers and very carefully separate the skin from the meat leaving skin attached in the back. Then sprinkle in and lightly spread your favorite dried herb over meat. Dried tarragon is great. Press skin back over meat. Tie legs together, roast and enjoy.

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
