‘Swap Your Oil For Bacofoil®’
I have been having fun this week testing out Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil at meal times. This is part of its ‘Swap Your Oil for Bacofoil®’ challenge. I am very familiar with the Bacofoil® brand, however I have never used this product before so I was excited to see what it was like.
Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil is very versatile. You can use it in baking, cooking as well as freezing which makes it an all-round superhero in the kitchen.
Benefits of Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil
1 It’s non-stick surface means that food lifts straight off, without breaking or falling apart.
2 There is no need to add oil or butter to stop the food from sticking to the tray.
3 Food doesn’t stick or burn on whilst cooking which means there is no need to scrub or soak oven trays! (YAY!)
What makes Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil, Non-Stick?
The clever BacoLift® Surface prevents food from sticking to it and is made to withstand the stickiest culprits. The BacoLift® surface is on one side of the Bacofoil® non-stick. It is really easy to identify as it has a more matt, non shiny embossed appearance. You must use this non shiny side to cook your food on to stop it from sticking.
I have tested out a lot of different foods for this challenge, from vegetables to roast lamb which worked a treat. I even let my mum have a go who got very excited when her roasted parsnips didn’t stick! You can see how I got on with using Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil this week.
Monday – Summer Roasted Veggie Quinoa with feta and crusty bread
Tuesday – Oven Baked Fajitas with baked sweet potatoes and salad
Wednesday – Rosemary Roasted Chicken Thighs with new potatoes and broccoli
Friday – Cajun Salmon with basmati rice and kale chips
Saturday – Roasted Butternut & Sausage Brown Rice Spaghetti and salad
Sunday – Roast Dinner at mums house!! (No cooking for me!)
Monday – Summer Roasted Veggie Quinoa
Quinoa is great for hiding vegetables but unfortunately for me, these roasted vegetables always get stuck to the pan whenever I make this recipe. As you can see that didn’t happen this week because I used The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil from Bacofoil®! These veggies flew off an absolute treat which meant more veggies in our tummies and less cleaning up for mummy!
Tuesday – Oven Baked Fajitas
I like to prepare this meal in advance so that when I am ready to cook, the oven can do all of the work for me. Because this recipe can get sticky, I often add extra oil to it but with the Bacofoil® non-stick there was no need. The fajitas came off with ease, no stuck-on bits of chicken to pick off the tray, everyone was happy
Wednesday – Rosemary Roasted Chicken Thighs
Chicken Thighs make a sticky mess. I usually cook them in a glass baking dish and deal with the clean up afterwards. Cooking them on Bacofoil® was amazing. They didn’t stick or tear the non-stick kitchen foil, they just lifted up with no issues. (And no cleaning up for me!).
Thursday – Baked Sweet Potato Rounds
Roasted sweet potatos are notoriously sticky which is why I decided to make them for this challenge. I was very impressed with how well these came out. Not only was I able to easily lift them off of the non-stick kitchen foil, they also all came off in one piece.
Friday – Cajun Salmon
Recently I have been cooking my salmon in a casserole dish instead of in foil parcels. This is great for time but means I end up cleaning cooked on salmon skin from the dish. Cooking the salmon straight on the Bacofoil® non-stick solved all of my problems. The cooked salmon lifted straight off with no need to oil the Bacofoil® first. Quick and easy!
Saturday – Butternut & Sausage Spaghetti
Sausages and notorious for sticking to kitchen foil and the worst part is when you go to lift them off of the foil and it tears and all the greasy fat from the sausages seeps under the foil and all over the tray, completely defeating the point of using foil in the first place. I cooked these sausages well, they were all golden and sticky and although the sausages on the edge of the tray that had been cooked on a bit more didn’t all slip and slide around when I took them out, I was able to lift them off pretty easily without tearing the foil. Another Bacofoil® win!
After this week of testing out Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil I can absolutely see why it would be an everyday essential in the kitchen. Although I can see the massive appeal to use it as a healthier alternative to adding extra oil to a recipe, what I really loved more than anything was the hassle free experience it provided for me when cooking for my young family. I want to be able to cook things quickly and as simply as possible, without spending lots of time cleaning up afterwards and that is exactly what I experienced this week using this product.
I wish I had known about this non-stick kitchen foil a long time ago so that it could have used it to maintain the appearance of my oven trays too! If you use foil to cook with in your kitchen but have never tried The Non-Stick Kitchen Foil, give it a go! It’s a bit of a game changer and something I am glad to have found not only to cut down on the oil I may use in a recipe but also to save time and energy washing up, plus it’s 100% recyclable… what more could you want?
