Some oven toasters come with pre-programmed cooking functions like broiling. You’re in luck if your toaster has that functionality. But don’t worry if you don’t have those pre-programmed functions, your regular countertop toaster can still do the broiling.
Why not delight yourself with some broiled grapefruit for dessert tonight? Make a mixture of granulated sugar and brown sugar, and spread it on top of the halved grapefruit. Broil in your toaster and garnish with mint.
Is fruit a little too light? You can broil the steak in your toaster as well. The key is to salt and marinate the meat for 45 minutes (at least). This will ensure the meat has absorbed the seasoning. Preheat the toaster for about 10 minutes, then prepare the broiling pan and foil. Next, broil the steak for 7-10 minutes or when the desired doneness is achieved.
TIP: Use leaner cuts to avoid oil spatter in your toaster. Brush margarine to the meat sparingly to avoid a grease fire.
