These toast points make the perfect base for creamed dishes, such as a shrimp or  lobster Newburg, chicken a la king, creamed eggs, or seafood au gratin

This is a good, basic recipe you'll make again and again. 


  • 6 slices good quality sliced white bread* 
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Steps to Make It

Heat the broiler (500 F or High) and position the top rack about 6 inches from the broiler heat source.

Arrange the bread on a large baking sheet. 

Brush the top of each slice of bread with melted butter, then sprinkle the slices lightly with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Broil for about 1 1/2 minutes on the buttered side, or until golden brown. Flip and brown the other side for about 1 1/2 minutes.

When the slices are cool enough to handle, trim the crusts and slice each into 2 triangles. Alternatively, you may cut the toasts in two rectangles or leave as large squares.

Serve them as a base for chicken a la king, creamed eggs, lobster Newburg, or other creamed dishes.
