We Have Talked Coffee-How About Toast

Thanks to everyone who posted regarding my coffee question. I now have another request. What do most people do for toast? We have a new trailer and did not opt for the oven/broiler (just the stove top). I understand you can take an electric toaster (if you have an electric hook up site), but how about if no electricity is available. I suppose I could use the grill, but I don't know it that's really practical for a couple of pieces of toast. Anybody have much success toasting over a stove burner? When tent camping we once tried the Coleman toaster that fits over a burner, but it sucked and just burnt the toast.

Guess maybe because of where we live, we toast tortillas over the open flame of the cooktop. Med/low flame directly on the cooktop grate for about 10 seconds or so per side until a bit of char is evident and roll up the eggs/cheese mixture inside. If we want bread we cook up canned biscuits or cinnamon rolls, muffins, etc.

If electric isn't available, or my kids request it, I make fried bread like my grandmother did for me. Buttered both sides of bread, and dropped it on a hot cast iron skillet, flipped once and add a little sugar and cinnamon. I still have that 100 yr old skillet.

A couple years ago we bought a cast iron dutch oven and made biscuits (much better than toast, imho). We just open a can of Pilsbury Grands and let the magic happen. Need many more briquettes on the lid than underneath or you'll get biscuits that are charred black on the bottom and raw on top. One of our camper friends uses his wire toast rack on the Coleman stove and gets perfect toast.

You can't make things idiot proof, you can only make them idiot resistant.

For an added touch, take an aluminum pie plat that fits into the dutch oven and place in bottom. tear the biscuits into bite size pieces. Mix up some slabs of butter, milk, cinnamon, and brown sugar and pour over the top. Cook until done. Then pull the pie plate out, may have to dent in the side to grab it.

Makes great sticky buns with out getting the dutch oven dirty. I usually have to cook 2 pans for the 6 of us and a friend or 2.

I use a big toaster that will fit any size bread from standard to dbl. long. Stainless steal for easy clean up.
