Not sure about that but I do recall having a toaster that could toast only one side of the bread (and there was a reason given but I'm bu99ered if I can remember what it was now).....

In Ireland this is common practice. It allows just enough to time for the grill to warm up to do the other side.


With cheese and thinlllly sliced mushrooms/truffles on, of course.

Do yourself a favour, wear earplugs at gigs.

The bright embers of an ashwood fire, a forked stick and the (ideally firm-but-fresh) bread supported by the stick poked through top and bottom. Toast one side by hand using appropriate distance and angle, then flip and warm to 'stale' (but not to proper brown) the other.

Butter to taste. The result is exquisite. As long as you have active red/orange embers you can even do it while the fire is in progress (and you're feeding it).

I've fed parties of 8 people on a constant round-robin basis for an hour using this technique. You need a few forked sticks but they last longer than one might think (make sure they have had the bark removed). Once you get it, with the right fire you can toast a piece to absolute perfection in well under a minute, even varying for taste.

I will concede a 1-in-10 loss rate if it falls off the stick but nothing perfect comes for free. That's why we have good ale to wash it down with - people secretly relish the gaps for a second sip between sentences.

All other methods are futile in comparison. Simpler, I'll grant you, but nowhere near as satisfying, tasty or social :tongue:

I have recently started keeping thick sliced in the freezer and putting two slices straight into the toaster for 'er indoors (I have Alpen)

Works great because the toaster pops once, I turn the bread over and when it pops again, perfeck for Madam! When I used bread at ambient I could never get an optimum browning. I now no longer bin 1/2 a big loaf each week (I rarely eat toast)

I also have a silicone sheet that I do pizzas on. Do not stick. You could cut a couple of shields to do one sided toast?
