When we moved last year I left behind my toaster oven. I never realized how much I would miss it. There are so many things I used to make with it because living in Florida turning on your oven to make a frozen pizza, roasting vegetables, or heating up leftovers is just out of the question. When I learned about the Panasonic FlashXpress Toaster Oven and was offered a chance to test it out with a challenge I jumped at the chance. I hadn’t made my Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze and Goat Cheese in a long time and we’ve been craving them!
Thanks Panasonic for the challenge, we accept!
The double infrared heating feature was one of the most interesting features of the toaster oven and before we made our Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze & Goat Cheese we decided to throw in a pizza to see how it held up. The oven was the perfect size. Unlike our old toaster oven this one is more square so it has the depth you need to cook a personal sized pizza with no problem. It did a great job too. We used the pan it came with, covered with foil (because I hate cleaning), and it was still crispy on the bottom. The rack is not adjustable, but it cooked perfectly – top and bottom. When we did toast the following morning we really saw the difference the double infrared heating feature made and the toast was perfect in half the time as the toaster.
The true test was making our Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze and Goat Cheese and it did a fabulous job! This one is a keeper and you can pick it up for under $100 on Amazon!

I love roasted brussell sprouts and your recipe is awesome. I need a toaster oven so will look into this one
We love roasted brussel sprouts and have them all the time. But I never thought to add goat cheese. Or to make them in the toaster oven. Great idea!
I really need to invest in a quality toaster oven because heating up a conventional oven to reheat simple meals is so time consuming. Goat cheese is super delicious and will definitely make Brussels sprouts super tasty.
This looks so delicious! The recipe looks very doable and the toaster oven really makes a great choice for preparing this one! Thanks for the idea.
I don’t like brussel sprouts but I appreciate the review on the toaster oven! I live in coastal HOT Texas and I hate turning my oven on during the summer too
I LOVE Brussels Sprouts and am always on the lookout for new recipes for them. This one look amazing!! Thanks!!
I had the most amazing balsamic Brussels sprouts at this little place called Cast in the city yesterday and was planning on scouring Pinterest today to find a good recipe. Thank you for saving me the trouble! I can’t wait to try these 🙂
I’ve never been big on Brussels Sprouts but your dish might change my mind. It looks Fab! Gotta try it!
This is such an awesome way to serve Brussels sprouts. I need to try this out for myself!
I think the FlashXpress Toaster Oven would be a wonderful appliance for any kitchen! I love the look of those roasted brussel sprouts! I just had them after 40+ years for the first time last Thanksgiving and they were fabulous. I’ve been missing out. Think I’ll try your version with goat cheese and a balsamic glaze! YUM!
I used to HATE brussel sprouts…until I roasted them. Brings out their great sweetness, which I bet balances really well with the balsamic and creamy goat cheese.
I really like brussel sprouts and I usually steam them. I prefer them roasted, but I hate to turn my oven on during the summer here in SC because of the heat. That toaster oven looks like it does the trick. I’ll have to look for one like it.
I love the addition of the goat cheese and it looks easy to make too!
As a kid, I hated the sound of brussels sprouts. I love them now however! I’ve never tried them with goat cheese either, I bet that’s delicious!
ThIs sounds great. My husband and kids would love this I have no doubt about that! I will have to make this for them sometime!
That sounds like such an interesting combination! I would have never thought to put goat cheese or balsamic glaze with brussel sprouts!
I simply adore food like this! Not too complicated to make, and super super healthy. I would love to try this!
Oh yum these sound delicious. I’ve never had balsamic vinegar on brussel sprouts, but I can totally see how that would work! I might switch out the goat for blue or Parmesan cheese – we lived on a goat farm for awhile, lol, so I just can’t bring myself to eat the cheese!
They say every veggie tastes better roasted and I believe it. This looks and sounds oh so delicoius!
Both my husband and I love brussels sprouts, and this is fantastic. Straight and to the point. I’m talkin’ right now. Fantastic! Thanks for sharing.
