Texas Toast on Wikipedia:

Texas toast is a type of packaged bread (not sold toasted as the name implies) which is pre-sliced at double the typical thickness of most pre-sliced breads. While it can be used in the same manner as ordinary bread slices such as in sandwiches,[1] it is especially useful for dishes involving liquids or where extra thickness can improve the product, such as French toast and for bread used in fondue.[citation needed] Producers of Texas toast include Wonder Bread, Franz Bakery,[2] Mrs. Bairds, and Safeway/Lucerne Foods.

Popular in Texas and the states surrounding it, Texas toast is generally served toasted as a side with southern-style dishes such as chicken-fried steak, fried catfish,[3] or BBQ[4][5]. Texas Toast can also be used when making toasted sandwiches.

The actual toast itself is made by buttering both sides of the bread and broiling it until lightly golden brown. Depending on the recipe, the butter may have seasonings such as garlic. The toast may have cheese on one or both sides. ``Texas toast`` is also the brand name of a frozen garlic toast (a variation on garlic bread) product made by Pepperidge Farm.

Some recipes include regular or thick-sliced bread being cooked in a frying pan that has just been used to fry steak, bacon, or other meat product in order to absorb the grease from the meat.

History

Texas toast may have been first created in 1941 at the Pig Stands in Beaumont, Texas.[6]
