I wrote recently about some bread recipes that I keep on hand to fix for dinner. One that I didn’t include on that list is this one for Freezer Texas Toast. That’s because it’s not really much of a recipe.
It is, however, an incredibly convenient staple to have on hand in my freezer.
It is also incredibly popular at my dinner table.
Before I discovered this recipe, Texas Toast meant the box from the freezer section of the grocery store that I almost never bought because I didn’t feel it was the healthiest option.
Not to say that my homemade version is health food. But making it myself, I know exactly what’s in it and although I haven’t checked, I’d bet my house that mine has fewer ingredients, all of which I can pronounce.
You could add any variety of herbs you like to this. We like it pretty simple, I even go light on the garlic in this recipe (unlike my gyros, where I always add more than called for). You decide what your family will like best. Parsley would be good, or basil.
Can I add a plug here for baking stones? I love mine. One of the things I love best is that I don’t have to flip things in order to get even browning. People either love or hate stoneware. I am most definitely in the love camp.
This bread is buttery and golden and crisp and delectable. And did I say buttery.
If your family likes buttery — make this bread. Keep it on hand in your freezer and see the smiles on your family’s face when they see there’s Texas Toast for dinner.
I’ve actually gotten applause.
