I use the broiler for toast, breads and sliced muffins and smother with butter.

For many years I had no toaster and my morning ritual involved a heat diffuser like this one:

They will work over an electric or propane stove burner (or a wood stove). Though they require close supervision and constant fussing they make excellent toast, and they are small, light, and inexpensive.

We do the exact same thing. We do a lot of boon-docking and hate carrying around things we really don't need.

I've not tried this, but for 4 bucks it might be worth your time.

I like the toast like my G-mother used to an oven, slid beneath the broiler flames with three of four dabs of butter...then you eat it about as soon as it comes out with your favorite jelly or perserves. (apple butter)

Over an open fire, using the coals.

If I'm cooking the way I really enjoy, then I put the bread over the coals on a grill rack just after the eggs are done, watch carefully it only takes a very short time and it's time to flip.

Sorry, no pictures but I have an idea for a new thread, might do it this weekend.

Keeping it simple is our mantra on the road. If we have fried bacon, we brown the bread in a LITTLE of the bacon grease in the same skillet to make "fry bread." Yum! If no bacon and we want morning toast with coffee, we put a wee bit of butter or spread in a small skillet, get it hot (light browning is delicious) and toast in the pan as with the fry bread. We try to keep the oil minimal yet enough to "toast." This saves us from hauling another utensil when we travel and is far tastier. ~G

Spent all day today out in PA flea market country. Also last Sunday here in NJ looking for one of those toaster thingies. OK, not all day just for that, but was looking for one. Didn't find any. So, call me, still looking. I gotta have one around here too. Somewhere. But I can't find it.

Those toaster thingys that you use on the stove work well if you can turn the flame up REALLY HIGH, ie: a camp stove. On a regular stove, they do not work all that hot - tend to dry out the toast well before any browning takes place. We used to use one all the time when we camped using our Coleman camp stove. In the Boundary Waters, where we canoe camp (very rough camping! At least we don't have to dig our own latrines, like the Canadian side does...), we brown bagels in a skillet with a little butter or oil. We don't take bread up because it gets crushed too easily in our food pack.
