A Versatile Toaster – Foods You Can Toast

Do you still believe that the toaster is only made for browning bread slices? Well, you sort of out-of-date then. From a toast maker, it turned into a must-have kitchen appliance for making breakfasts before work and fast dinner ideas. Here are some toaster recipes you may like to have in mind when you lack any ideas for what to cook.

 

  1. Pesto sandwich – you will need two slices of bread, pesto sauce, ham or any meat you like (you may even use leftovers), slices of tomato and mozzarella. Build yourself a sandwich, place it in a sandwich bag and toast until cheese melts.
  2.  Veggie patties – since these are not meat patties with splashes and dripping fat, the toaster is the way to go. Take some vegetables such as chopped onions, bell peppers, artichokes and fry them in a pan until they are soft. Take a can of beans, mash them and mix with fried vegetables. Add 1 egg, salt and pepper to taste. Form patties and cook them in a toaster.
  3. Reheated pizza – actually this is not about cooking but reheating. If you have any pizza leftovers you can make it as cheesy as it was when you ordered it. A microwave won't work for that, not as good as a toaster will do. Take your pizza, grate some cheese and sprinkle it with your favorite sauce. Put it in a sandwich bag, place a pop-up toaster in an oven 'mode' and enjoy your pizza!
  4. Garlic bread – imagine a crispy aroma toast with cheesy mass atop. It is a short way from imagination to practice, especially when the recipe is so simple. Take some slices of Italian bread, toast them until they are golden and rub them with minced garlic when they are hot. Then cover them with thin slices of cheese, fresh parsley, place in sandwich bags and toast until cheese melts.
  5. Bagel pizza – use your toaster in a brick position. Cover a bagel with your favorite pizza sauce, use any pizza filling to your liking and do not forget to add some mozzarella atop. Use parchment paper or sandwich bags to protect your toaster from dripping cheese and vegetables.

 

As you see, the recipes are quite easy to cook but what you may need except the ingredients are toaster accessories such as sandwich bags, tongs, a cleaning brush, etc. Make sure you have them to provide yourself with a stressless toasting experience.
