Easy 4 Ingredient Texas Toast
1 loaf Italian Bread (or any bread that you enjoy).
1 clove of garlic – peeled and smashed
4 Tbs Butter – room temp.- divided.
Garlic Salt to taste
For Cheese Toast
½ cup preferred cheese – cheddar, mozzarella, etc.
Slice the bread to the thickness that you enjoy. Put one Tbs of butter in skillet on stovetop – medium heat setting. Allow the butter to melt. While butter is melting – wipe the bread on both sides with the crushed garlic clove – you don’t want to leave garlic on the bread – simply to impart some of the flavor. Then smear both sides of the bread with a light coating of butter and sprinkle lightly with garlic salt
When butter in the pan is melted, add the bread and allow to toast on one side until a light brown coating appears (lift it up every minute or so to check – will take about 2-3 minutes). When one side is browned, flip the bread to the other side and allow it to brown in the same way. When that side is browned, remove from the pan and serve.
Do you like for your Texas Toast to have melted cheese? WONDERFUL! Me TOO!
Set oven on Broil and allow to come up to temperature. Sprinkle the top of the Texas Toast with cheese and place on a baking sheet. When broiler is ready, place sheet of toast under the broiler and allow cheese to melt – keep the oven door slightly ajar and watch constantly – will take about 30sec to 1 minute. When cheese melts and is slightly bubbly, the bread is ready.
