Toaster Oven Double Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 stick cold unsalted butter, roughly chopped
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ tsp baking soda
tsp fine salt
1 cup dark or milk chocolate chunks, roughly chopped
1 cup dark or milk chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, add cold butter and sugar. Using an electric mixer, beat until they are all combined and creamy.

Carefully add the egg. Beat to combine but do not over mix.

Add in the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt and beat on a low speed until soft cookie dough forms.

Add all the chocolates and mix together using a spatula. Scoop out the cookie dough, roughly 1 tablespoon per cookie, and place on the prepared oven trays.

Place in the fridge for at least half an hour to set.

Bake at 350°F for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until browned. Keep in mind that the cookies will continue to bake as they cool.

Allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes on the pan before transferring to a serving dish.

Toaster Oven Kale Chips

Toaster Oven Kale Chips

Toaster Oven Kale Chips


2 large kale leaves
1 tbsp freshly grated lemon zest
Olive oil, avocado oil or any other cooking spray of your preference
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste


Remove the thick stems and large ribs from the kale leaves. Wash them well and allow them to dry completely.

Preheat your toaster oven to 300°F.

Tear or chop the kale leaves into similar pieces. For best results, the pieces should be about 2 x 1 inches.

Place the kale pieces on a baking sheet and spray with 2-3 pumps of oil.

Arrange the leaves making sure they’re not touching.

Sprinkle the kale with salt, pepper and lemon zest.

If possible, place the baking sheet on the lowest rack and bake for 6 minutes.

Rotate the pan and bake for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, or until leaves are crisp and dry. We prefer ours to be extra crispy!

Allow kale chips to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Meaty Toaster Oven Lasagna

Meaty Toaster Oven Lasagna


12 sheets Lasagna
1 lb ground beef
½ lb ground Italian sausage
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 can tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
1 tsp Italian seasoning
23 tbsp cooking oil
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup butter
¼ cup All-purpose flour
2 cups milk
1 cup evaporated milk
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp nutmeg powder
1 ½ cups shredded Mozzarella cheese


Preheat the toaster oven to 350°F.

In a large pot, cook the lasagna sheets according to packaging instructions. Drain and brush lightly with olive oil to prevent from sticking. Set aside.

In a large saucepan, combine ground beef, sausage, onion, and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat until meat is browned and crumbled, drain.

Add Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes.

To make the sauce, melt butter in a medium saucepan. Once it starts to bubble, add the flour, and stir the mixture constantly with a whisk. Let this cook for a few minutes, until the mixture is lightly browned. Slowly add the regular milk and evaporated milk while stirring the mixture constantly. The mixture will start to thicken in about 4-5 minutes as you stir. The consistency should be thick but still pourable. Season the sauce with salt and pepper. Add the nutmeg. Stir for one to two more minutes. Turn off and remove from heat.

In a baking dish that fits your toaster oven, pour ¼ of sauce into the bottom. Place 2 to 3 cooked lasagna sheets evenly on top of the sauce.

Spread ⅓ of Bechamel sauce over noodles, top with ¼ of sauce, and ⅓ mozzarella cheese. Repeat layers, ending with sauce, and reserve ⅓ of mozzarella cheese.

Bake for 45 minutes. Top with remaining mozzarella and bake for 15 minutes or until hot and bubbling around the edges. You can place parchment paper under the baking dish to protect your toaster oven from spills.

Let the lasagna sit for 15 minutes before serving.

Cheesy Toaster Oven Mozzarella Sticks

Cheesy Toaster Oven Mozzarella Sticks


12 sticks mozzarella string cheese
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 large egg
1 tbsp water
cup regular breadcrumbs
cup panko breadcrumbs
1 tsp Italian seasoning
½ tsp garlic powder


Slice each string cheese in half crosswise to make shorter pieces.

Place the cheese on a parchment-lined baking sheet or a plate and freeze for an hour or until completely solid. You can get parchment papers right here.

Preheat your toaster oven to 450°F.

Prepare 3 shallow bowls.

In the first bowl, add the flour. In the second bowl, whisk the egg and 1 tablespoon water until well combined. In the third shallow bowl, combine regular and panko breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.

Dip each cheese halves in the egg mixture and gently roll on the flour.

Put the cheese back to the egg mixture and roll until coated.

Finally, roll it into the breadcrumbs mixture while pressing the crumbs on each piece. Ensure it is fully coated to prevent cheese from leaking.

Arrange breaded Mozzarella Sticks in a single layer on a parchment paper sheet or using a Grill Mat like this one.

Bake for 8 to 9 minutes.

Serve immediately with your favorite dip.
