In the low fat, low carb world we live in today, sometimes a girl just wants some carbs and some fat. I’ve had some buttered toast in my day, and to date this recipe is tops in my book. It starts with Sara Lee Artesano Style Bread.
The next ingredient is President butter. (Apparently France’s #1 Butter! I can certainly see why. Such salty, smooth goodness.)
The bread and butter cost $2.99 each at Safeway, bringing the total cost $5.98. “That seems like a lot for something so boring,” you might say. To some this may be true, but not to me. I believe it’s worth every penny.
I’ve tried the 99 cent bread with “healthy butter” made of oils. It’s just not the same. (And no, we’re not sponsored by Sara Lee or President.)
Look how thick that bread is! It’s practically homemade! It almost looks like Texas Toast. Hmm, speaking of Texas Toast…
I actually fell in love with buttered toast in Texas. I was about ten years old and our family drove out to El Paso for a fun family weekend trip.
We only ended up staying one night in a dirty room, sleeping on lumpy beds. After a terrible “continental breakfast” of buttered toast, run-ins with unfriendly hotel staff, and a shortage of suitable sights to see, we drove around the UTEP Campus and started driving back home.
The vacation became known as the “36 Hour Trip to El Paso” in family lore. El Paso is a lot like Tucson since they are both located in the desert southwest. Therefore, it was not a very interesting trip since it was just like home.
To me, however, the vacation became known as “the dawn of buttered toast.” I have loved it ever since. My favorite restaurant to get quality B.T. is Village Inn, where it comes to your table already buttered with nearly anything you order!
Sooooo goooood. Just add some Smuckers and you’re set. The breakfast of champions indeed!
Do you enjoy buttered toast? What are your other high fat, high carb guilty pleasures?
