However you top it- toast is one of the most versatile foods to eat. It was probably the first thing most of us learnt to make food wise all because using a toaster is simple and reasonably safe. We have a new toaster out- it is a toaster! What more is there to say, except it cooks evenly and the whole piece - no turning required.

So lets talk about the things you can make with the toaster because it's not just toast. Although in my opinion you can't beat toast smothered in butter and marmite. I reckon the marmite haters would have something to say about this though. Toasters can be used for crumpets, breakfast muffins and bagels. Any other suggestions?

You can even go posh and make our sweet potato toast- I sliced the sweet potato to about 1cm thick, it then needed 2 bursts of cooking on power setting 4 and it was perfectly done. Giving you plenty of time to poach and egg and crush half an avocado. A perfect lunch or starter.

The simple slice of bread popped in the toaster for a few minutes can be eaten for all meals and snacks throughout the day. Why not start the day off with our healthy toast topped with sliced banana and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Feel free to drizzle some honey on top!

On those lazy dinner times I am not adverse to beans on toast! I jazz it up with a hefty sprinkle of black pepper and grated cheese! What else do you love on toast?

 

Here's the paragraph for my mum- this toaster fits a slice of Kingsmill 50/50 perfectly! My mum has complained for ages that bread no longer fits in toasters. Does anyone else have this problem? I will continue to test all the different bakers bread sizes and let you know.

Did you know- the toaster was invented in Scotland in 1893!
