A compliment of ‘You make good toast’ is unheard of from where I came from. It’s just a slice of bread put into the toaster! What’s the big deal.. However, years and years of eating the toast prepared by staffs in the wards changed my opinion.’It is not just any bread’, I thought. Still, I paid no attention whatsoever onto how to do a good one.

Hence, this morning I panicked as I tried to make ‘good toast’ for the team during coffee break. Sukarela tapi padan muka tak reti. Although I looked calm, it was a tsunami inside my head as I tried to search for those ‘unconcscious manuals on making toast’ that I picked up during my rotations. Argh.. where? where? Was it in O&G? Respiratory ward? Paeds?

In short, my toasts were a bit burnt but since they were hungry, they just ate it. Great, I’ve just helped them get cancer by stuffing benzopyrene down their throats. Huhu~

Once I reached home, I practiced the art of making toast. I suppose the trick is;

  1. Use white bread – I’m a wholemeal lover because it doesn’t make me hungry too quickly. Sadly, wholemeal doesn’t make good toast as compared to white bread.

  2. Perfect timing – My current toaster has a dial with numbers from 1 to 6. So far, my ‘good toast’ is a product of number 4. I guess it is different depending on the type of toaster you use. A ‘good toast’ looks slightly brown + yellow+ crispy.

  3. The right butter – I made 2 slices of toast. For the first slice I used the type of butter you’d use to bake cakes and the other is a proper spread  (with a ‘healthier option’ label to it) The ‘good toast’ was the one with the earlier option. Damn.. food with lots of fat taste nice. Once buttered, the middle part of the bread should sink giving that lovely yellowy ‘oily’ view. 😛 hah.. nikmat.

  4. Presentation – Triangle shaped toast are always nicer than a rectangle one or one that is not cut at all. 

How do you make your toast? 🙂

oooh, pandai, pandai!! Main thing is, to spread the butter IMMEDIATELY – while it’s still warm (to get that oily effect!). And then, to make sure those who you’re preparing the toast eats is ASAP – so that the toast doesn’t harden. Bila nak serve I toast ni? Yummy!
