Did you know that you can use your toaster oven to make delicious meals, other than just regular toast? With a good toaster oven you can make healthy and tasty foods in a short period of time, anything from pizza to garlic bread. For more inspiration, here are some quick and easy recipes that you can cook in a toaster oven.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

You can make this recipe in just a couple of minutes by using some basic ingredients that you already have in your pantry: cheese and bread. All you have to do is make a sandwich out of these two ingredients and then slide the sandwich in the toaster. You can of course add a few more ingredients of your choice, such as tomatoes or ham.

Garlic Bread

If you are planning to make spaghetti for dinner or you want to make some quick bruschetta, then you should definitely try out this recipe. It’s more easy to make garlic bread using a toaster oven, rather than using a regular oven. To keep it from dripping into your toaster and make a mess, place some parchement paper in your oven and then add your slices of bread.

Pizza

There are many toaster oven models that come with a pizza rack, so why not take advantage of it and try to make a delicious pizza for you and your family. If you want to make something fast, preferably in 5 minutes, then you should replace the pizza dough with an English muffin or a tortilla. You can choose whatever ingredients you like, but don’t forget about the marinara sauce and the parmesan cheese or mozzarella so that your pizza tastes authentic and delicious.

Chicken Quesadillas

The best part about making quesadillas is that you can fill them with whatever ingredients you prefer. You can either try to make a delicious quesadilla with chicken, cheddar cheese, green peppers, tomatoes and fresh herbs or use beef in combination with a spicy sauce, cheese, onions and tomotoes. If you want to make this recipe more healthy, you can replace the white totilla with whole-wheat tortilla.

Baked Sweet Potatoes

If you like baked potatoes but you want to try something new, and preferable more healthy, you can try making baked sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes are full of vitamin A and beta-caroten so they are a great alternative. Just sprinkle some olive oil and salt and wait until they are golden brown and crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
