Toast

Recommended Posts

udonthani

you don't have to buy one of those silly toaster things to make toast.

 

all you have to do is do it in a frying pan, preferably a non-stick one.

 

the trick is to apply only a very low heat, therefore very difficult to pull off on a wood stove, gas stove is better than electric.

 

it takes about four minutes on each side and it should be a perfectly even golden brown.

 

I never have toast with butter here. Both the bread which is too sweet and the butter type margarine etc products available are just not up to scratch.

 

I eat it with peanut butter, that made in Leyte stuff that is quite widely available around Cebu is the best and not expensive. A jar lasts me around a month. Peanut butter serves to mask completely the sweet taste of the bread available in most bakeshops but means you still get the texture of toast.

There is lots of butter available here. I buy either New Zealand or Danish butter, and both are readily available. .   Why would you expect local margarine to taste like butter ??

no they are not readily available, at all. You don't move around like I do and you live in a city with access to a mall or malls. Right now where I am the only place where products like you describe are available is maybe 12km away where they have recently built a Gaisano and Anchor and Danish may not be available there, I don't know I haven't looked - and before that, the nearest one was like 35km away. You also have a refridgerator 100% of the time. If you don't (I have one maybe 50% of the time) then having butter is just not practical and you have to use your brain basically to come up with an effective substitution. And that is peanut butter. While you still have to be careful to keep it cool as it can go off, it is not like dairy butter in this way.

Yes, you are better off not eating local margarines - that stuff is lethal.

 

However, you are putting a lot of refined sugar into your system with the bread and the peanut butter.

Or you can buy one of those 'silly toaster things' and just put your bread in and not worry about it. 

 

Finding good bread in a place where you can't buy butter - now there is a challenge.

You can also use an iron to toast bread.

I have had several "discussions" at different Hotels here - when I query where is the toast with my breakfast - invariably they refer to the whole breakfast as "toast" - the toasted bread I am looking for is called "toasted".    OK ...... as you were.

Obscure breakfast trivia:

 

 After using the frying pan to toast bread you can also use it in a pinch to fry up some bacon and eggs.

 

 

Who knew?

To be fair to Whippy, he is talking about being able to make toast while 'on-the-go'.

 

As for bread, I buy the sugar-free stuff from S&R or the gardenia 'green' loaf.
