Dinner was another Power Air Fryer meal. I had  Omaha Steaks bacon wrapped filet mignons and some cheesy hash browns. 
Slathered the meat with olive oil

and into the fryer for 12 minutes.  Then drizzled olive oil on the hash browns and they went in the fryer with the steak for 5 more minutes. 

The steak was super tender and soooooooooooo good, and I love those cheesy hash browns. (leftovers for tonight!)

Friend Val Smullen shared this with me:
LOL!!!


All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
