All in One SEO Pro lets you add Schema markup for recipes. This means that search engines can display rich snippets for your recipes like the example below.
You can set the default Schema Type for your recipe content by going to All in One SEO » Search Appearance » Content Types and clicking on the Schema Markup tab in the content section for your recipes.
For more detail on this, please see our article on Configuring Schema Settings here.
You can’t force Google to display search results like this. It happens on a per search basis depending on whether they feel it’s the best way to display the results.
