How do you make toast ????

Hi, while traveling I find it difficult do one of the simplest of tasks that we do at home all the time. Making toast. Short of taking the toastmaster along I just have not figured a good method. Actually I think the toaster draws too much current to make it worthwhile and we're not always hooked to 110v anyhow. In a previous life when pop-up camping we had a small device that sat on the propane burner and held 4 pcs. of bread upright and toasted. Worked fairly well. Was compact and easy to store. Don't have it any more.

So, How do you do it ???? I'm sure I'm missing something here. Feel free to slap be upside the head anytime. I miss my toasted muffins with my eggs. I did try it in the oven, eh. Better than nothing. But it seems a waste to heat the oven for toast.

Thanx for any help,
Roger from NJ

The stove top toaster that you describe is what i used today on my propane stove. I had full hookup and could have used my toaster oven but the stovetop unit seems easier.
It also works when you aren't on full hookups. What could be easier?
It is also a very lightweight piece of equipment. And when it is really hot in the summer you can use it on a propane stove outside.

you can also brown your toast in a skillet. or just put on the grates on the propane stove and turn the heat down a little.

Once the skillet toast is made, time to put in the precooked(baked at home) bacon, move it aside, add the eggs in the hot pan, works for me.

I'm not sure I want toast that has been bathed in a propane flame to cook, so we drag along a regular toaster. When there's no 120V, there's no toast.

We place the bread on a cookie sheet and slide it under the burner of the oven. Wait a few minutes, flip the bread to brown the other side.

We use the same method to brown biscuits on the top before the bottoms turn to charcoal.

Wait- I thought there were slots in the roof of every Airstream just for making toast.

1. Pop bread in slots.

2. Push down on tongue.

3. Bread pops up when it's done!

Airstreams up to 25' have two slots. 27' and longer Airstreams are 4 slot models (yanno, for families.)

I don't yet own an Airstream (still looking and dreaming.) Please don't tell me that the toaster slots aren't standard equipment. I will be so disappointed!
