I buy TV dinners, no preservatives, and buy some stir-fry, or steamer, mixed vegetables. I peal off the plastic top of the TV dinner dish, leaving one edge of the plastic cover still attached. I then add some vegetables on top of the TV dinner. There is usually room to stack more vegetables, especiaily Frozen Peas. I smack the peas with a heavy object, like a board, to break them up, if they get frozen in clumps. I find frozen chopped mixed vegetables, such as Steamer Vegetables or Sit Fry Vegetables in the Grocery freezer, so that there is a variety of vegetables, for each meal..
I then pour on some souce, like Alfredo Tomato, Sweet and Sour, Teriaki, or Cheese Sauce, on top of the vegetables. Then I put the plastic cover back over the top of the TV dinner, even though the plastic cover does not fit tightly any more. I then turn the attached end of he dinner toward the Convection fan. I set the oven for Convection Bake, 345 Degrees, 5 degrees below the recommended 350 Degrees. I don't know what happens with the plastic dish above 350 degrees, but I have warped some plastic dishes, trying to cook a TV dinner in a toaster oven.
I use the cook timer for the TV dinner, usually 44-46 minutes for a 32 Minute dinner, to allow for Preheating, which I never do. Then I come back on my time. because the TV dinner keeps warm, when the oven has shut off. The suace in the TV dinner dish can be seen to be bubbling, boiling hot, if the TV dinner is cooked enough. Maybe keeps hot for an hour. If I am not sure how long I will be delayed eating, I will set the oven to 200 degrees, when I pass by the kitchen, after the dinner has finished cooking, to keep the dinner warm, and in the safe temperature range, over 140 Degrees, internal.
I have been getting a 5 and 8 year old accustomed to eating Frozen Egg and Sausage Toaster Scrablers. I put the Toaster scrambler in the microwave for 30 seconds before putting the scrambler in the the toaster. Seems to help get the Toaster Scramler cooked all the way through. Frozen Breakfast Burritos have also worked for me, in the microwave. Each time I have tried, they ate the whole portion.
