Turkey burgers with pesto one-pot meal

Last week it snowed; this week has seen temps in the 80s. That’s Colorado weather for you.

Large toaster ovenWhen it gets hot like this, I hate to turn on my oven and heat up the whole house. So I pulled out my large toaster oven and set it up on the back patio. This toaster oven is big enough to hold an oval 3 1/2-quart cast iron Dutch oven. (I bought it at Bed Bath & Beyond — and it’s only $29!)

Then I created a quick and easy Glorious One-Pot Meal for dinner: frozen, packaged, organic turkey burgers slathered with last summer’s homemade pesto (pulled out of the freezer), a sweet potato scrubbed Turkey burger with pestoand sliced thinly, and a bag of frozen mixed vegetables (Cascadian Farms organic California mix).

The verdict? Super delicious. Not a bite was left over.

    I spent hours driving around this past weekend, buying the toaster oven, and getting a 3.5 oval dutch oven. It did not fit. I was extremely upset at the wasted time and having to return everything. When you make a post about doing something like this again, please include the size/brand dutch oven you used, and whether or not you took the lid or the knob off the lid or what. Does the recipe even cook right without the knob on the lid??? Because that’s the only way it would fit.

    The recipe is excellent, though – had it last night in our regular oven/dutch oven.

    What a great idea to put the toaster oven outside, thanks! Sounds like a delicious dish you made up!

    So did you put any liquid in with that? I love your one pot meals for lunch too! I start it at 11am, put in the oven by 11:15 and it’s done by noon.
