Toaster Oven Perfection
Streamlined recipes that save time and energy and make your cooking life easier.
Featuring 150 foolproof recipes, Toaster Oven Perfection transforms everyone’s favorite (but underutilized) appliance into a meal-making powerhouse. Beyond their vast cooking abilities, toaster ovens are more energy efficient than regular ovens, making them a smart choice for home cooks looking to save energy (and save money)! We investigated the new wave of toaster ovens to craft delicious, practical, and modern recipes for everyday cooking. Enjoy sheet-pan meals for two such as Glazed Meatloaf with Root Vegetables, Roasted Chicken Breasts with Brussels Sprouts and Shallots to oven-fried delights such as Chicken Nuggets and Nut-Crusted Cod Fillets. Elevate your breakfast game with Make-Ahead Currant Cream Scones and New York–Style Crumb Cake or snack away with irresistible nibbles such as Buffalo Chicken Dip and Quick and Easy Nachos.
Introductory resources break down the interior components of your toaster oven and guide you through all of the general functions that you can use to cook (warm, toast, bake, broil, air-fry, etc.) to help you get the most out of your appliance. We also give you a rundown of our toaster oven equipment testing and reveal our top-rated models. Clever tips and tricks set you up for success as we share strategies for how best to arrange ingredients and the must-have tools for flawless results.
What you'll find inside:
Easy Chicken Enchiladas
To create delicious enchiladas with a complex flavor, we prepared our sauce with canned tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, and other spices. We kept the filling simple with shredded rotisserie chicken and melted Monterey Jack cheese.
Asparagus and Goat Cheese Tart
For this savory and satisfying tart, we relied on store-bought puff pastry for the crust. To achieve a creamy, spreadable base for our toppings (asparagus, scallions, garlic, and pepper), we blended extra-virgin olive oil with soft goat cheese.
Deviled Pork Chops with Scalloped Potatoes
This impressive one-pan meal makes for a satisfying dinner any night of the week. To ensure that the potatoes and chops finished cooking at the same time, we baked the potatoes ahead of time before adding the chops to the pan to finish cooking. We mixed our panko breading with Parmesan cheese, Dijon mustard, mayonnaise, and hot sauce to keep the chops moist.
To make the chocolaty, chewy brownies of our dreams we had to figure out the perfect proportion of saturated fat (butter) to unsaturated fat (vegetable oil). We replaced some of the oil with an extra egg yolk to keep the fat from separating while baking.
