Texas toast is quite simple. It’s just a decent white bread that has been sliced at about twice the thickness of regular sliced bread, then liberally slathered with softened butter before being griddled to a golden brown. The exterior should be buttery and crunchy, while the interior remains spongy and sweet — perfect for mopping up white pepper gravy.

 

Ingredients

  • A loaf of high-quality white bread that has not been sliced
  • A stick of salted butter, softened

Directions

Slice the loaf into 3/4-inch slices.

Liberally butter the slices on both sides.

Heat a griddle to medium-high heat and toast the slices about 1-2 minutes per side until golden brown.

Serve with chicken-fried steak, fried chicken or any smothered gravy dish.
