This is an updated post from our recipe archives.  Haha, it feels silly saying “archives” like Toaster Oven Love has 1,000 recipes.  Nowhere near 1,000 but in a few weeks, we will be at our 100th recipe!

Last week we gave the site a small makeover.

There’s lots left to fix but we hope you are enjoying the changes and find it easier to navigate the website.

After the update, I was looking through the recipes and saw the original post for this sandwich.  It had 3 sentences that basically said this tastes good – you should eat it – yum!

And the photos, oh-my-gosh I was so close to the sandwich it was just two craft store googly eyes from turning into a chickpea monster.

Seeing that old post got me thinking about how much fun the last 16 months have been.  Toaster Oven Love is hard work (I’m looking at you social media) but in return, I have gained a new set of skills and been blessed with meeting many seriously cool and very generous people.

Family and friends message me photos of their toaster ovens.  Strangers are making our recipes and actually enjoying them, though not everyone has and that’s okay.  Last week I had to call my domain provider and the customer service agent asked “What’s this website about? I’m going to check it out tonight because all I use is my toaster oven.”  That brightened a rather difficult day!

And I truly appreciate that you guys are willing to let me crash your inbox each week with some crazy toaster oven recipes – like these donuts ↓

I guess I just want to say thanks so much for supporting this toaster oven fanatic and making her feel like she’s not totally lame for getting excited about sweet potatoes and avocado toast.

Alright, I’m going to stop now because as the kids say “I’m feeling all the feels” and really you need something to eat…like a cornbread veggie sandwich.

2016 Writing Goals = work on segues 😉

So for this tasty sandwich let’s start by mixing together a big scoop of your favorite hummus and a handful of cooked chickpeas.  Toss in chopped bell pepper and a pinch of fresh parsley.  Take a quick taste and add salt and pepper if you want.

Next, grab a toothy Cheddar Sriracha Cornbread Donut (what you don’t keep a stash in your freezer too?) and slice it in half, pile on alfalfa sprouts and a few cucumber slices.  Scoop that chickpea mixture onto the veggies and slap the other cornbread piece on top.

Now prepare to dig into your crispy, creamy, crunchy super flavorful Cornbread Veggie Sandwich.  Things might get a little messy but it’s going to be ohhhh sooooo worth it!

  1. It definitely looks amazing, my favorite part are the buns, I would love to make them. I feel the same about blogging and photography. I don’t think that my photos at the moment are out of the world, there are so much better ones out there and there is still so much to learn, but compared to the photos I took when I first started the blog…. there is really a big difference. I should start renewing some of them as well. 🙂

    1. Aww thanks Adina, you are definitely one of those kind and generous people blogging has introduced me to 🙂 Photography is so tough, I agree it’s good to take a moment and see the progress. Like you’re Rhubarb Raspberry Jam photos they are just gorgeous, now if I could only get my hands on some decent rhubarb 🙂

  2. I can’t decide which part of this sandwich is my favorite… I’m a hummus and chickpea fanatic but then there’s those crazy awesome cornbread donuts… I’m thinking that means ALL of it is my favorite! I’d eat this every day and be a happy lady 😉 Yummed and pinned! (P.S. Fun to look back and see how much we’ve learned in just a year isn’t it?! Can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store for us to come!)

    1. Yay, thanks Sam! I just picked up some oat flour so I could give your recipe a go. I’ve been having a string of epic vegan baking fails – I know your donuts will be a sure thing 🙂 and delicious!
