Fancy toast

tags: | |

I sometimes get a craving for an English breakfast (egg, bacon, sausage, tomato and beans) on cheap, sliced white bread toasted. The problem is, I use a couple of slices of bread and then I have the rest of the loaf for which to find uses (it’s not as if I would eat it with good cheese).

Here is a really good way of making something sophisticated from something… well… unsophisticated.


  • Slice of white bread
  • Olive oil


  • Toaster


  1. Toast the bread until it is a little less than fully golden.
  2. Remove the crusts.
  3. Carefully slice horizontally through the toast to leave two slices, toasted on one side and fluffy on the other.
  4. Place your slices fluffy side up on a baking tray and drizzle some olive oil over them.
  5. Place in an oven at 350°F until the slices curl and crisp.
  6. Use with dips, cheese, soups or anything that requires this sort of thing!
