How Do You Make Toast?

Okay, there was a very good thread recently about making coffee, especially when one is boon docking.

What goes well with coffee? Toast!

It would be easy to make toast with full hook-up; just plug a toaster in.
However, a toaster takes a lot of room. I have not seen a smaller version for an RV. Have you?

How about boondocking? I have seen wire toasting baskets that you hold over a fire. The problem is this: open campfires in most of my province have already been banned.

I suppose you could melt some butter in a frying pan and pan fry the bread, but this is not real toast. Besides that, the outside is all greasy. Ick!

I'm open for suggestions. Thank-you.

Like many things on the forum, there's a thread on it already. I just used the search feature for "toast" and located it immediately. It's even named "How do you make toast????"

I use the oven broiler to make toast. Even when I have electricity and could carry or use a toaster I don't. I prefer the crispness of broiled bread and leave my toast in the oven to become crunchy all the way through. No lightly tanned bread for my butter. Although there are so many nice looking toasters to be displayed in a trailer, like this radio toaster!

Okay. I'd delete this if I could.

Maybe the mods can delete for me? Thanks.

Heck, that's OK. This will just bring up the other thread on a search since I added a link to it.

Sometimes when I am searching for a thread, I don't find exactly what I am searching for, but do find a link to it in another thread. As far as I'm concerned, the more ways to find things the better.

Besides, this thread has Wheel's post with that great Radio Toaster. Way cool.

I'm OK with several toast threads - I LOVE toast.

I make it under the broiler in the oven.

I carry a toaster which I use when we have electricity.

Otherwise I just toast it on one of the stove burners.

We always pack english muffins - they are especially tasty under the broiler

The only reason....a great breakfast needs great toast.
Fits right in the storage above the slide-out pantry.

Made me remember when I used to "toast" hotdogs over the burner on a fork until that one time that the tines made contact with my lip...sizzle seared.

Primus toaster

We carry a plug-in toaster that my parents carried in their trailer. On a recent trip, we also felt the need for toast while boon-docking, so I started searching upon our return home. Oddly enough, I found one last night....made by Primus. It only makes one piece of toast at a time, but it got much better ratings than the other, 4-slice stove-top toasters. It hasn't arrived yet, but I will post back with photos and my ratings.

On a related subject....we solved the problem of making waffles while boon-docking! We originally went looking for an old, plug-in waffle iron, and this was what we came home with....and, it makes GREAT waffles on the Airstream stovetop!

You can purchase a "Coghlan's" Camp Stove Toaster at Candian Tire for around $5.00. It sits on top of your stove burner and will hold 4 slices of toast. It can also be used with a portable camp stove.

This is what I grew up with. It works well and is small and light.
