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
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.
- Nature's Own Butter Bread" or "Pepperidge Farm Farmhouse Hearty White Bread" are both good choices or use your favorite full-size loaf bread.
