How to make texas toast

Making texas toast is so easy!

To make our texas toast, the first step is to preheat the broiler. Then, line a baking tray with foil. Next, butter 1 side of each slice of bread. Then, place the bread (butter-side-up) on the prepared baking tray.

Next, sprinkle on garlic powder, mozzarella cheese, and parsley. Lastly, broil your texas toast until the cheese is melted (stay with it, this can happen fast). And you’re done!

Pro Tip #1: If you don’t have garlic powder on hand, use 1/2 teaspoon minced or crushed fresh garlic instead.

Pro Tip #2: Don’t forget to use our recipe for keto white bread, sliced thick for a traditional texas toast style! This is also delicious with a mixture of half mozzarella cheese and half cheddar cheese!

Why do they call it Texas toast?

There’s a history here! There are rumors that a Pig Stand near Dallas, TX accidentally invented texas toast back in the 1940’s when an order of bread was cut too thick to toast.

Before the order was thrown out, the chef introduced the genius idea to add some butter and grill the bread. And thus, texas toast was born!

What do they call Texas toast in Texas?

Texans have always have always been ballsy. So of course they have their own toast! And yes, they themselves call it Texas toast just like the rest of us.

How do you cook Texas toast?

Texas toast can be cooked in more ways than one! We like to broil ours to achieve the perfect melted consistency of the cheese on the bread. But make sure to keep a close eye on your Texas toast in the broiler- we’d hate for you to turn it!

Another way to cook it is if you happen to find yourself at a barbecue. Load your butter, garlic, and cheese onto your low carb bread and slap that puppy on the grill right along with your juicy steak! 

Texas toast can also be cooked on a pan or skillet over the stove.

How thick is Texas toast?

Texas toast is about double the thickness of regular sliced bread. The thick nature of texas toast allows it to retain more moisture than other breads, which gives it the delightfully soft texture that we love.

The being extra thick also helps to soak up any yummy juices or sauces left on your plate from whatever southern dish you’ve been enjoying.

Pro Tip: The thickness of Texas toast bread also makes for great french toast!

Why is toast called toast?

The word “toast” comes from the Latin word “tostare” which means to roast or scorch something. Hence “toasting” bread, which is then known as “toast”.

How long does Texas toast take to cook?

Our texas toast recipe only takes about 2 minutes to cook! Once you’ve slatered your butter, garlic powder, cheese, and parsley on top, just broil your texas toast for a couple of minutes until the cheese is a gorgeous ooey gooey consistency!

What temperature do you cook Texas toast?

For our texas toast recipe, just preheat your oven to broil! No need to worry about preheating your oven to a specific temperature. Broiling your texas toast will give the bread that perfect crispy, yet soft texture, while melting the cheese oh so beautifully.
