How to make toasted bread with a frying pan?

Toast is a favourite in my home, especially as part of breakfast or for a quick snack on the go.

It gives you instant energy, gets rid of hunger pangs in a hurry, and is just plain tasty.  Depending on what you choose to put on your toast, it can be brunch, lunch, or dinner.

A toaster has become an essential appliance in the kitchen and one of the quickest ways to create a tasty snack.

But if you do not have a toaster, you can still make toast. There are several methods of toasting bread, and they do not all require you to have a toaster.

A frying pan is one of them and will toast your bread nicely.

You very basically just fry the bread in a frying pan until its golden brown, then you flip it over with a spatular, and cook the other side until it’s done. Definitely not rocket science

 Here are some recipes you can use to toast bread in a frying pan.

  • Peanut Butter Toast

You will need peanut butter for this recipe and a slice of bread. You begin by preheating the frying pan without oil, and then place the slice of bread on it.

A non-stick frying pan is the best for this so that the toast does not break. Press it gently on the pan using a spatula to make sure that the heat gets into the bread well.

After a minute, you can flip and do the same with the other side of the slice of bread. It should be brown and a little crispy.

Once the second side is well roasted, remove the toast and spread peanut butter on it while it is still hot.

You can serve it hot with other additives such as tomatoes, lettuce or fruit jam.

Peanut butter toast is easy to make, has no oil, and is nutritious. However, if you have a nut allergy, then you have to explore other recipes.

  • Butter Toast

You can use either salted or unsalted butter, depending on your preferred taste. It will help if you spread butter on both sides of the toast before placing it in the heated pan.

Use moderate heat so that the bread does not burn or the butter will melt out even before the toast is golden brown.

Use a spatula to press the toast on the pan and flip it after a minute, to allow the other side to toast. You can serve the toast with toppings such as tomatoes, lettuce or cheese.

The toast is crunchy but not hard because butter is well saturated on the bread. Do not add oil in the cooking pan because the butter is enough to help toast the bread.

If you own a frying pan, pull it and start enjoying new toast ideas everyday.

Be sure to use low or moderate temperature when heating the pan on your stove, too much heat can burn the bread and alter the taste of your end-product. Happy Toasting guys and Gals.
