Pop-Up Toaster Breakfast

This week I’ve taken on the challenge of cooking a daily meal by using either my crockpot, griddle, microwave, or pop-up toaster – absolutely no stove or oven cooking. The first three seem easy to do, but that last one requires diligent creativity.

The fourth kitchen appliance of my meal quest resulted in the perfect answer – French Toast Sticks. Great idea! It’s a prepare-ahead recipe, and you freeze them and pop them into the toaster whenever you want a quick breakfast. I found the idea at happyhealthymama.com, a blog with wholesome recipes and healthy living.

Next on my toaster breakfast plan was to try out my own version of freezer French toast sticks. If you’ve followed my blog before this article, you know that I often create recipes in my kitchen according to what I have on hand like my What’s On Hand Style Taco Soup (incidentally, that recipe can be made with 2 of the 4-kitchen-appliances mentioned here).

The items I had on hand that could possibly make my toaster meal possible were different than the recipe I discovered at happyhealthymama.om, but I could make do. So take a look at my recipe to see what you think.

They are so easy to make. Eat one or two for breakfast, right off of the hot griddle.

Then let the others cool, slice them, and put them in a freezer bag and into the freezer.

You can also find toaster bags on Amazon. When you’re in a hurry but want to eat something quick before you take off for the day, pop three or four sticks into the toaster. They are quick, easy, and tasty.

  1. I can’t believe you actually made a recipe that you cooked in your toaster. Very creative. Have you ever considered writing a series for college students cooking only with dorm allowed appliances?

      It was certainly a challenge, but I was excited to find a recipe that worked. It’s such a good do-ahead recipe. I thought that toddlers through teens but not college students. Good idea!


  2. We will just love your Toast , looks awesome! Hope you had a great Valentine Weekend and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
