Get Toasted

Chef Eric Ripert's blog Avec Eric has fantastic recipes for the much neglected toaster oven. These days I'm loving toaster ovens because who wants to fire up a giant regular oven and heat up your home to make a panini or something simple? A toaster oven is energy efficient and simple to use!

Yes! I love toaster ovens, too. I'd gladly give up my microwave, but not my toaster oven.

I have a relatively large two rack "convection" toaster oven (fits a pie plate) that broils, too. I probably use it as much or more than my range oven. Cooking for a family of three, it is perfect. I acquired some smaller casserole dishes and pans that fit it well, which makes it even more useful.

Our toaster oven was a key player in making meals in the middle of our DIY kitchen remodel (which went on f-o-r-e-v-e-r).

And my kitchen is not configured well for a double oven, so the large toaster oven really helps when I am cooking for a larger crowd.

Toaster ovens, they really are good for more than toast and warming up leftover pizza.
