Top Five Reasons to Buy a KitchenAid Mixer
So they aren’t exactly “reasons” to buy KitchenAid mixers, but below are recipes for every meal of the day. Let’s face it, I can tell you about horsepower, warranties, and color options, but it’s much more about the products you are going to be creating with your mixer. It’s the fresh biscuits in the morning, homemade pasta for dinner, and piping hot cinnamon rolls for dessert that make this kitchen tool an absolute must. If you do want the specs, be sure and check out all things KitchenAid from KaTom Restaurant Supply in our special KitchenAid Section.
1. Breakfast Recipes for Your KitchenAid Mixer
For breakfast, your new KitchenAid mixer can whip up buttermilk biscuits and grind fresh sage breakfast sausage. Not into the traditional southern breakfast? Why not try a vegetarian frittata with dough fresh from your mixer?
- 1 lb. lean ground pork
- 1/2 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 tsp. dried sage
- 1 tsp. kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
- 1/8 tsp. dried marjoram
- 1/2 tsp. paprika
- A pinch of ground nutmeg or allspice
Begin by grinding the meat using the coarse plate of your KitchenAid food grinder, then spread the ground meat out on a sheet pan and sprinkle the spices evenly over the meat. Mix the ingredients either by hand or in your KitchenAid stand mixer.
Form the meat into small meatballs, approximately 1/2 inches in diameter and then flatten into a patty shape. At this point, you can either freeze or fry your sausage patties.
To freeze, place your patties flat into a freezer bag and store until ready to cook. According to you should use the frozen sausage within two months.
