Mother’s Day Brunch in a Toaster Oven

Mother’s Day Brunch in a Toaster Oven

Check out this quick toaster-oven review video & delicious recipe I created for for for Mother’s Day!

By Jeremy Stamas,

Toasters often get a bad rap, but a good toaster oven can be a godsend. For people who live in tiny apartments that don’t have full-size kitchens, a toaster oven is often the only oven in the household. And these countertop ovens do have their advantages: The small size means they preheat faster and they can be easier to handle than their full-size counterparts.

The Best Toaster Ovens of 2019

Since they’re small, toaster ovens also make great tools for teaching kids how to bake. So, we sent our two favorite toaster ovens—the Breville Smart Oven Pro and the Hamilton Beach Easy Reach—to food blogger Lindsay ‘Mama’ O’Neill to see what she could whip up with help from her daughter, Avery.

Here’s what she had to say:

My husband LOVES toaster ovens, and he’s the breakfast master in our household, so he helped me come up with this simple yet creative recipe for a Mother’s or Father’s Day brunch in a toaster oven.

Steak & Eggs in a Biscuit Basket


• Grassfed strip steak marinated in soy sauce, rubbed with a chicory coffee rub—or an espresso rub
• 4 uncooked biscuits molded into cups
• 4 eggs (can use just the yolk to prevent a bigger mess)
• 1 handful of citrus microgreens
• Pinch of salt & pepper


  1. Pre-heat the toaster oven to 300° convection
  2. Place steak on one tray and biscuits on the other
  3. Crack 1 egg into the hole in each of the 4 biscuits and sprinkle with salt & pepper (if you have large eggs, you may just want to use the egg yolk)
  4. Cook the biscuits on the upper rack and the steak on the lower rack for 15 – 17 minutes
  5. Let the steak rest before slicing. Serve the sliced steak on top of the egg in the biscuit, then place a few sprigs of micro-greens on top.

Enjoy! Happy Mother’s Day to all you Mamas!

Love & yum,

Lindsay “Mama” O’Neill
