Recipes for your toaster

Sure, you can just pop a pre-fab treat into the toaster, but think of the pride in building your own toaster-food concoction.

Our favorites tend toward the easy cuisine of our old colleague, Chef Aldo of the Couch Potatoes. For example, here's one of his we like for long nights in front of the tube.

Representing most of the major food groups (carbohydrates, sugar, salt, fat, and caffeine), the Coffee Crystal Sandwich is a great pick me up.
  • Toast 2 slices of Wonder Bread.
  • Squeeze generous dollop of liquid Parkay on one
  • Sprinkle a teaspoon or two of Folgier’s Coffee Crystals
  • Add Sugar and Cremora to taste
  • Cover with second slice of bread
  • Massage bread slightly to mix ingredients


You’ve heard of French Toast, of course, but this is something different. Prepare bread and recipe as in first recipe, but replace coffee crystals with Nestle’s Quik.

If that doesn’t keep you yodeling into the night, we don’t know what will.

Okay, so these are a little too outré for you? Well, for slightly more conventional toaster delights, try Dr. Toast's Tasty Toast Recipes.

"Every slice of bread, no matter how airy, white and characterless, offers the golden promise of toast."
