Herbed Texas Toast


Don't mess with Texas — toast, that is. Double-thick slabs of bread, buttered and grilled, are just right for enormous sandwiches, chicken-fried steak or barbecue.

about 1 dozen slices Texas Toast


Choose your measure:


  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  2. Heat the milk, water and oil until lukewarm and add to the dry mixture.
  3. Beat well, then stir in enough additional flour to make a stiff batter; the dough should be too slack to knead by hand, but stiff enough to hold its shape.
  4. Spoon the batter into an 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan. Cover the pan with a proof cover or lightly greased plastic wrap, and let the loaf rise in a warm place for 45 minutes, or until it's crowned over the top of the pan.
  5. Bake the bread in a preheated 350°F oven for 35 minutes.
  6. Remove it from the pan and cool before slicing.
  7. Slice the bread about 3/4" thick, brush with olive oil or garlic oil, and grill — on your outdoor grill, or on a stovetop griddle.
