Toast is a science!

Re: Toaster

Toast can also be the subject of a deep philosophical debate in my family. It goes like this:

When you put bread in a toaster it comes out as toast, but when you put a bagel in the toaster it comes out as a bagel. Why is that?

Maybe some voyages are just too long...

Too simple! And besides there is nothing to break or take up extra storage room. No sir that idea can't possibly work on a modern cruising sailboat.

Re: Toaster

Instead of stovetop for toast, I use the broiler. Easy and quick to do with an oven broiler set-up at ~3-4 inches away from the flame. Upon reflection, I make toast a lot and use the broiler for garlic bread, tuna melts & bagels too.

+1 on broiler. When I had an origo stove I did the pan method and it did the trick

Re: Toaster

I'm with Boatman about the "fried" toast. Better still to butter the bread, brown on one side, cut a hole in the middle for an egg and make "toad in the hole". Put jelly on the cut-out piece for dessert. I burned a lot of bread before getting the hang of the burner-top toaster, and each one rusted out after a couple of years, so I'll do anything but make toast until I get truly desperate.

pirate Re: Toaster

When I was a Baby Sailor at HMS Ganges they did not do toast in the mess hall just piles of buttered bread slapped together... so I'd take a couple of 4 slices back to the mess hut and stand a hot dry iron on top of each pair... worked a treat...

Re: Toaster

I have a grill for toast but the frying pan works great for cheese and onion toasties - make your sandwich as normal, put in hot pan, allow to brown, flip to brown other side and make sure cheese is melted. No oil or butter needed if using a non stick pan

Re: Toaster

Get a better stove.



Spinflo Nelson. The grill is very even, no toast burnt at one end and untouched at the other. Proper thermostatic oven, excellent for casseroles and it's native dish - Yorkshire Pudding!
