Serves 2


  • Spray oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup diced veggies
  • 3/4 cup grated cheese + extra for topping.
  • 2 Tbsp cream
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • Herbs and spices (I use Herbamere)


  1. In a medium sized bowl, whisk eggs, cream, milk and herbs/spices.
  2. Add cheese and vegetables and stir to combine.
  3. Spray whatever dish you will be cooking them in with oil.
  4. Divide mixture beween dishes.
  5. Bake in air fryer for 12 minutes at 180C.
  6. Add remaining cheese and cook for a further 4-5 minutes or until cheese is golden and bubbly.


  • Can be cooked in a regular oven, simply allow oven to pre-heat before cooking and adjust cooking times to suit.
  • This is a delicious breakfast dish.
  • Play with your flavourings. Garlic, paprika, onion powder, different herbs etc.
  • Add some crumbled bacon and spring onion.
  • I use ramekins but you can cook this in one bigger dish if you prefer. Adjust cooking times to suit.
  • I keep little frozen packets of veggies in the freezer as it takes up less room. I use one of these for my veggies.
  • Serve on its own or with 1/2 an avocado or side salad.
Impossible Pie (Gluten Free)

Impossible Pie (Gluten Free)

This is a pretty forgiving recipe. It was the first dessert I ever baked on my own when I was about 11 years old! I’ve used coconut oil instead of butter, different flours and this time you will see the mixture is all lumpy in the bottom image as I didn’t melt the butter – it was soft at room temp so I just threw it in and stirred and it melted in the air fryer and turned out just fine. You can see where I tasted this one before I took the pic (and I may have accidentally cooked it at 180 before I realized and dropped it to 160. It’s a little dark on top but still tastes amazing!)   Have fun, let the kids have a go … and enjoy! It’s easy to make and soooo tasty. You’re welcome 🙂


  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk or milk replacement (coconut, rice etc)
  • 1 cup sugar or sugar substitue (I use Sukrin Gold)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup gluten free flour or your preferred flour substitute (I use arrowroot starch/tapioca flour)
Please note, if you have a thermomix (or other mixer) throw it all in and blend it up – that’s what I do!

Air Fryer Method

  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs.
  • Add milk, sugar, butter, vanilla and stir well.
  • Add coconut and flour.
  • Pour into baking dish.
  • Place into air fryer and bake for 30-40 minutes at 160ºC (this depends on your oven – I bake at this temp in my 2225w Philips XXL)
  • Remove and allow to cool before serving.
  • It tastes great on its own or with cream and berries!

Easy Beef & Cauliflower Stir Fry

Easy Beef & Cauliflower Stir Fry


  • 500g Beef, thinly sliced (I use stir-fry beef)
  • 500g Cauliflower florets, cut into bite sized pieces (I use a bag of frozen cauli)
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Brown onion, diced
  • 1 Capsicum, diced (optional)
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced (fresh or in a jar)
  • 1 Tbsp Ginger, minced
  • Chilli flakes (optional and to taste)

Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 Tbsp Arrowroot flour (can use corn starch or regular flour as thickener)
  • 1/4 cup Soy sauce
  • 2 tsp Rice wine vinegar or distilled white vinegar
  • 2 tsp Sesame seed oil
  • 1 Tbsp Honey (optional – omit for low carb)


  1. Make the sauce first by mixing together the water and arrowroot flour/cornstarch until smooth. Add in all remaining sauce ingredients, stir until combined and set aside.
  2. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 Tbsp of oil and the onion, garlic and ginger. Cook until onion is translucent.
  3. Add cauliflower and capsicum and cook until it is tender. If using frozen add a lid to the frying pan and allow to cook for 5-10 minutes or until soft, stirring every couple of minutes. If using fresh and you prefer your cauliflower soft, add about 1/4 cup of water to the pan while it cooks. Cook until water is absorbed and cauliflower is soft.
  4. Remove all ingredients from pan and place into a bowl while you cook the beef.
  5. Add remaining 1 Tbsp of oil to pan. Increase pan heat to high.
  6. Add beef and sear. This should take no more than 30 seconds each side. DO NOT overcook – a little pink meat is OK as it will cook through later.
  7. Add cauliflower back into the pan with the beef and stir to combine.
  8. Stir the sauce in the bowl to make sure the arrowroot flour/ cornstarch is incorporated and pour the sauce over the beef and cauliflower.
  9. Heat the sauce to a strong simmer. Cook for about 1-2 minutes to thicken the sauce, stirring occasionally to make sure all beef is cooked and beef and cauliflower is coated with sauce.
  10. Serve with sour cream. Can also be served with cauli-rice or cauli mash to be kept low-carb. Serve with rice or pasta if preferred.
Camp Oven Chili con Carne

Camp Oven Chili con Carne

This is so easy … this is actually the first ever recipe we cooked in our brand new camp oven on our own. We used ingredients that we had in the freezer and pantry and walah! Mexican bowls for us. It really could have been done in a frying pan, but we really just wanted to use our new camp oven – and Chris had a great time cooking it 🙂



  • 500g mince beef
  • 1 brown onion, diced
  • 1 red capsicum (optional)
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (or make your own)
  • Chilli and/or cayanne powder (optional and amount to taste)
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 can red kidney beans
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil


  1. Preheat your camp oven over the coals.
  2. Add the oil and onion and stir until onion is transluscent.
  3. Add mince beef and stir until browned all over.
  4. Add taco seasoning and stir to combine.
  5. Add water, wine, beans and tomatoes if adding and stir well.
  6. Replace lid on camp oven and return to the coals for about 10 minutes or until the liquid has reduced.
  7. If it is still quite runny, remove from the coals, take the lid off and allow to continue to cook in the pot until the desired consistency is achieved.

To Serve:

We generally try to keep things fairly low carb, so we served this in a bowl topped with cheese, sour cream, tomatoes and avo. But you could serve it in in wraps, tacos, on nachos or however else you usually eat Mexican meat. To reduce the carb content even further, omit the kidney beans and canned tomatoes.

Camp Oven Veggies

Camp Oven Veggies

We aren’t going to pretend to be camp oven experts … in fact, this is only the third ever recipe we’ve made in our brand new cooking appliance! The first was damper made with the help of a qualified baker (!) and the second was a super simple Mexican Chili con Carne.  We just kinda wing it and hope for the best. We didn’t have a trivet (until today … after the veggies) but personally, we liked the way they crisped up on the bottom and were soft and fluffy on the inside. We’ve made it a few times like this and have just purchased a trivet from BCF today. So that will be our next experiment! For now … this is how we made our roast veggies in the camp oven. Feel free to tweak it and add your own flavours etc. Please comment below and share how you do yours!


  • Veggies of choice peeled (if you like) and cut into similar sized pieces
    • Pumpkin sliced into wedges
    • Potatoes in quarters
    • Carrot in halves
    • Sweet potato (cut in a similar size to the potatoes)
    • Zucchini in halves
  • 30ml olive oil
  • 2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 2 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. garlic granules
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Preheat camp oven in the coals of your campfire.
  2. Pre-cook root vegetables in boiling water for about 10 minutes to soften (this makes them fluffy on the inside and reduces cooking time. You can skip this step if you like and just cook for longer in the camp oven).
  3. Drain water and pour into a large bowl.
  4. Add oil, herbs and seasonings. Toss to combine.
  5. Remove camp oven from the fire, take the lid off and tip your veggies in.
  6. Replace the lid and pop the camp oven back onto the coals.
  7. Add some coals to the lid of the camp oven.
  8. Leave to cook until veggies are done to you liking. Ours took about 25 minutes having been par-boiled. If skipping this step, allow up to an hour depending on how many veggies you have.


I forgot to add the zucchini once, and added it half way through – this was fine as it takes less time to cook. Same with the pumpkin. So if you can be bothered, add the veggies that cook a little faster a bit later. If not, just throw them all in and embrace the deliciousness that comes out!
