1. Tortilla Pizza
Spread marinara sauce over a whole wheat tortilla (or any tortilla), sprinkle cheese, sprinkle more cheese, keep sprinkling cheese, add preferred toppings, and then toast.
2. Miso-Glazed Salmon
You should marinate this overnight, but the actual roasting shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes.
3. Toasted Brie, Ham, and Apple Sandwich
Substitute your handy toaster oven for the conventional one mentioned in this recipe.
4. Single-Serving Peanut Butter Cookie
The actual recipe refers to it as a “Single Lady Peanut Butter Cookie,” but screw that. It’s been rechristened.
5. Lasagna Toast
DISCLAIMER: This is kind of cheating because while it only needs 8 to 10 minutes to bake, you’ll need around 15 in prep time as well. Still, this recipe had to make the list because it’s brilliant and so much quicker than real lasagna.

7. Marinara and Parmesan Baked Eggs
You could be eating baked eggs in 10 to 15 minutes.
8. Roasted Asparagus
9. Toasted nuts
Just add a little bit of nut oil, sea salt, and then toast until brown.
Just put the bacon slices directly on the rack and let the grease drip into the pan below. So much less effort than frying.
11. Dried Fruit
This will take much longer than 15 minutes to actually cook, but the effort component could be easily accomplished in 5. Slice your preferred fruits thin, set your toaster oven to the lowest temperature, and let them bake for several hours or until fully dehydrated.
13. Baked Tofu
Press out excess water, marinate in sesame oil or soy sauce, and toss in the toaster oven.
14. Pita Chips
Here’s a recipe for both pita chips and a simple yogurt dip to eat them with.
15. Apple and Honey Tart
A delicious apple tart made inside of a tortilla. Uhm, I think YES.
16. Broiled Grapefruit
This recipe mentions using a torch (and a lot of bravery). But good thing you have a toaster oven so you don’t have to accidentally torch off your eyebrows.
17. English Muffin Pizza
This snack is guaranteed to make you feel like a kid again or your money back.
18. Kale Chips
A toaster oven is the perfect size to make an individual serving of kale chips.
19. Chicken Tenders/Skewers
Seasoned with Herbes de Provence, so they’re classy.
