After being frustrated with our normal toaster to the point that we tossed it, I received a new Breville Convection Toaster Oven for Christmas and it has proven to be really useful. I’ve been trying it out on various meals that would normally use the oven, range, or microwave and so far the results have been very good. Today I experimented with a home made breakfast sandwich using some ingredients I found in the fridge. Since it was tasty and took less than 10 minutes to make I thought I’d share. This *may* be the first in a continuing series of Toaster Oven Recipes. Okay, lets begin..
- 1 Slice – Deli Sliced Honey Roasted/Smoked Turkey Breast
- 1/4 Cup – 4-Cheese Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese
- 1 – Fresh AA Large Egg
- 1 Roll – Whole Wheat Sandwich Thins
- 1 Tblsp – Butter (Optional) (or some other type of spread you like)
I just happened to have these flavors and brands in the fridge, you can adjust based on what you have in your fridge or to your preferred tastes.
First, separate the two halves of the Sandwich Thin Roll and place face up. Spread butter on the inside faces of the rolls if desired. Tear one slice of Turkey in half and cover one half of the roll overlapping the two turkey pieces to fit the roll.
Place both roll halves on the middle rack of the toaster oven, set to Bake, 350 deg, 5 minutes. (My Breville Oven preheats first, then starts the countdown timer once preheating is complete. This actually works out well as I’ll describe in a moment.)
Next, crack the egg into a small pan (I happen to have a really small pan that is about the same diameter as the Sandwich Thins) on on the stove and break the yolk. Allow the egg to cook on medium heat.
Meanwhile, the oven will beep when preheating is complete and start the 5 minute countdown. Remove the cheese covered half from the oven and allow the meat side to continue cooking.
When the egg is nearly cooked you may want to flip it one time to finish the top, then remove it from the stove and place it on top of the cheese covered roll. The egg will be done just about the same time as the 5 minute oven timer. Remove the roll from the toaster oven and put the two halves together to make the full egg, cheese, turkey sandwich.
