simple pleasures

Sometimes it is the simplest things that make us happy. Griddle toast is one of those things.  What is griddle toast? It is simply toast cooked the old fashioned way, before the advent of the toaster.

Griddle toast  also known as skillet toast  with fruit. It is one of my favorite breakfasts that we have while camping.
Griddle toast is sooooo easy and yummy.

To make griddle toast you will need

a griddle or a skillet

1. Heat the skillet or griddle over a medium high heat
2. Butter the bread on both sides
3. Place the bread  on the griddle
4. Cook about 2 minutes a side, until golden brown and toasty
watch the toast  closely so it does not burn.

It does take a bit more work than popping bread in the toaster, but the results are wonderful.  The butter is cooked into the bread, so you get a different flavor than just dry toast. Crisp and buttery yum. Try it as a weekend breakfast, or as an afternoon snack.

  2. I love toast on the griddle but even better is a yummy muffin. I used to get them at a restaurant when I was in high school that served it that way.... If they can do it, then so can I. Funny because when I grill bread on the griddle, most times, I only grill one side. I guess I will have to try both sides!!
