On the borderline of "burnt." ANYTHING ELSE IS NOT TOAST.
I also don't like butter on my toast. Butter is gross. I just eat it hard and dry. Toasted so black and crisp that it shreds the soft inside of your mouth with every bite as you eat it slowly... What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. This applies to toast-eating as well.
Light with regular sized sandwiches.
Light or Medium with subs/heroes/hoagies/poboys.
Dark and crunchy with jams, jellies, and preserves, assuming a good country-style biscuit isn't around...a misleading phrase which implies I don't willingly choose toast over biscuits as often as I actually do.
I prefer mine without butter most of the time, but I'll accept it so long as it isn't thickly spread.
The nearly on fire and setting off smoke alarms is the way to go for me. You just cannot beat the taste of ultimately toasted bread. Of course spreads all but butter on this toast is great. So here's to the burnt toast the toast with the most of this toast.
MEDIUM. Too light isn't toasted enough, and too brown is just bleh. I HAPPEN TO LIKE BUTTER. Buttered and with jam. :D It has to be Jam and not jelly. I also like Apple Butter, which isn't butter at all but delicious. c__c It's like a cross between jam and apple sauce.
Coleslaw and toast... I need to try that sometime. I've eaten Texas toast with coleslaw, but it never occurred to me to deliberately mix the two instead of eating them consecutively... Which is sort of out-of-character for me.
Whoa. Your comment really has me over thinking this. Given my eating habits, why have I yet to mix the two?!
