Toasters. Pretty standard kitchen appliance yea? Still, I don’t have one and manage to make buttery toast without a toaster, whenever I like.
I don’t eat lots of bread, so a toaster hasn’t seemed like much of a necessity. For you it might be that yours is broken, you can’t be arsed to get one, or maybe you moved and the toaster got lost in translation. Whatever the case, you can quickly toast bread without a toaster.
So how do we make buttery toast without a toaster?
-> Bread Slices + Butter + Hot Oven = Buttery Toast <-
Easy enough right? It can take a bit longer than a toaster depending on how hot your oven is when the bread goes in. Or, leave the bread in too long and you’re guaranteed burnt toast. Yes, I’ve done this multiple times.
Mistakes aside, let’s get in to the nitty gritty of getting buttery toast on to your plates!
-> The Process <-
Difficulty level: Super Easy
- Step 1: Get your sliced bread. (You can also slice other types of bread into individual slices.)
- Step 2: Pre-heat your oven at about 200 degrees, for five (5) minutes.
- Step 3: Butter your bread generously (how much butter is your choice. I use approximately one (1) tablespoon per slice). I like this butter when I can find it.
- Optional Step: Add other elements to your slices (example: honey, cheese, peanut butter, etc).
- Step 4: Place the bread directly on your oven rack, or a baking sheet.
- Step 5: Let the bread stay in the oven until it reaches your preferred brown. Note: If you don’t have an oven with the option of heating from above and below simultaneously, flip the toast halfway through so both sides are evenly toasted.
- Step 6: Remove toast and serve.
- Optional Step: If there’s only butter on your toast, you can butter again for extra buttery slices. Otherwise, here are a few other toast topper ideas from Olive Magazine.
Additional tip: If you have a toaster oven, use the same method for toasting bread without a toaster ^_^.
