  • You can always pop your bread into a traditional toaster, but I thought I would share with you my favorite way to make toast. We love to make oven toast and it is delicious! My husband’s grandma used to make him oven toast for a snack when he spent the night at her house, and he has converted me to making toast this way.
  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and place a baking sheet in the oven. While you are waiting for the oven to heat, butter one side of your bread with softened butter. When the oven and the baking sheet are heated to temperature, quickly remove the baking sheet from the oven. Quickly place the bread, butter side down, onto the baking sheet and return the sheet to the oven. Bake until the bottom side of the bread is toasted 5-10 minutes (the top won’t toast, so peek under the corner of your toasts to check the bottom regularly). This toast is delicious because it gets crispy on one side without drying out like it does in the toaster. This is also a great method for making a lot of toast at once (said the mom of 5!).
