Simple and Sophisticated Meals for the Busy Cook


In Lynn Alley’s kitchen, toaster ovens aren’t just for browning bagels or warming up frozen pizzas. The best-selling author of The Gourmet Slow Cooker has discovered yet another unconventional and imaginative way to prepare gourmet meals at home. In The Gourmet Toaster Oven, Alley reveals why the toaster oven is an ideal tool to create mouthwatering meals with minimum effort. Toaster ovens are quick and energy-efficient, and provide additional oven space for side dishes when preparing large meals.


In this beautifully photographed book, Alley offers fifty gourmet breakfast, lunch, appetizer, side dish, dinner, and goodie recipes. Dishes include Coffee Cake Muffins, Southwestern Jalapeño and Red Pepper Scones, Macaroni and Cheese with Tapenade, Yogurt Baked Chicken, Beef and Vegetable Samosas, and Chocolate Lava Cake. This handy book also offers numerous surprising entrées—who knew you could grill a steak in a toaster oven?—sized for one or two portions. To complete the gourmet experience, Alley offers wine and beer suggestions for many of the dishes.


Tips on buying and caring for a toaster oven take the guesswork out of acquiring this useful gadget. Using fresh, high-quality ingredients and influences from global cuisine, Alley crafts sophisticated recipes that, with the help of your toaster oven, are simple to prepare and divine to experience.


The follow-up book to the best-selling Gourmet Slow Cooker (60,000 copies) featuring simple yet sophisticated meals for the toaster oven.

Ellen, February 7, 2007 (view all comments by Ellen)
I have not had a toaster oven in years, but I bought one because our son loves to cook and often likes to make foods for himself when we are not home. The toaster oven makes the process easier for all of us.

That being said, this book is a hoot. The recipes really are more than basic foods, but they are easy to read, use many items that we seem to always have in the house and obviously make smaller servings..2 or 4 servings being average.

I would recommend this book for anyone living alone, or as a couple. Or for someone who loves to cook, try new things but who does not want to make large quantities. This is the perfect book for just about everyone.
