Would you believe National Toast Day honoring the humble slice is on the Last Thursday in February? But it is so very versatile. It carries a multitude of jams, jellies, marmalades and fruit compotes. We don’t stop there. Toast transports proteins and veggies, sprouts, and soaks up sauces and drippings.
Perhaps we have overlooked the necessity of toast, and it shall have its due. We’re able to toast it to a variety of shades pleasing everyone. Whether we lightly toast it or char it to a dark crisp, it serves as a perfect medium for building breakfast or sandwiches. It accepts seasoning quite well, too. Add butter, gee, avocado, or honey. It doesn’t matter your preference. Cinnamon and sugar? Well, it might depend on your mood.
Or perhaps the bread you have on hand. Is it cinnamon raisin bread or whole wheat? Do you only have two ends left? Some think those are the best kinds of toast. Others well, you can’t teach everyone the best kinds of toast making.
